    The Samsung Galaxy S looks like it will be out soon here in the UK, And its looking good infact i am tempted to sell my X10 hmmm talk me out of it ! lol.

    Apparently the Samsung has a better:

    Screen
    Processor
    Version of Android
    Its Thinner
    Has Inbuilt Memory & Card Slot
    More Video Codecs
    More Widgets etc

    But the camera is not as good and theres no flash.

    Hmmm Or Maybe i should stop looking at phones lol.

    ...but it's not as sexy as the X10. It looks like on of those chinese iphone copies. Too iphone looking for my taste :p

    In fact it looks like the original Omnia from a few years back...

    That is true it does look pretty tacky hmmm yuk yes lol ! Ok thats done it and put me off again ! Cheers ! lol :D

    Maybe i should edit this to stop others thinking of changing to the Samsung lol.


    "Apparently" the Samsung has a better:

    Screen - Maybe but still not sure it will be as good as TFT in sunlight and its still less pixels.

    Processor - Samsung's Processor is better for gaming than the snapdragon but android is not exactly the best for games anyway. and i doubt in general use you would notice much difference

    Version of Android - 2.1 which the X10 will be getting anyway.

    Its Thinner - But also taller and wider.

    Has Inbuilt Memory & Card Slot - This is better but card is all i need for now.

    More Video Codecs - Again better but what can you do? lol

    More Widgets etc - We should get more widgets with 2.1

    But the camera is not as good and theres no flash. - Say no more.

    It also comes with guaranteed 0 communication/support/updates 'cause Samsung suck balls bigtime! Which is why my old Galaxy ended up Ebayed!

    My Advice is stay away from Samsung, no matter how good the phone is.
    That is if you want to have updates for the OS.

    I'll be getting the Galaxy S, I suspect it will be a lot better than my X10...

    Don't forget the Galaxy S has 720p video recording... I'm tempted by it, but because of Samsung's history of making new phones instead of providing updates for old ones, I think I'll pass...

    In Q4, whoopee. Good for people who'll still have the X10 then, utterly irrelevant to some of us...

    LoL well i will still have it the more i have looked at the Samsung since writing this the more i am put off by its design which is like a big cheap Iphone copy.

    Plus i know to some camera is not important but i prefer to keep the X10's camera and flash and wait for things like HD Video Recording and DLNA which i hope Sony take advantage of and give us a PS3 Remote Play App ! lol

    Sony haven't said anything about remote play, I'd seriously take another look at the X10 if they brought remote play...

    But as a competitor, Nokia N8 is launching in couple of months, and that is stunning in all its features compared to X10 and its like manner series of other brands.

    The Galaxy S is a good competitor (secondary camera).. :(

    I like the Nokia N8. I always wanted a Nokia phone (and a Sony Ericsson) What I don't prefer on the Nokia N8 is that it doesn't run android, smaller screen and lower resolution, and it looks like the "Sidekick 2008" phone (without the keyboard). :D Nokia may have a world dominance, but in the USA it's not used much (..Moto).
