    It was about damn time! For some reason, Engadget took this long to make a review. The droid x was reviewed fast - the iphone 4 was pathetically reviewed right away. It took 1 week for the Vibrant and 4 days for the Captivate. I was never pissed with Engadget except this time. Anyway, good to see that the review took place. Now they could maybe post the issues so that Samsung would do something about it. Right now, if problems happen and blogs/news doesn't post about it, it will never be fixed. Bad PR hasten companies to move their butts for fixes. Sad but true.

    Yeah, the things they put in their cons can be remedied with rooting and TiBackup...the battery, GPS, SMS ordering, lack of MMS messages from Verizon, antenna issues, stopwatch sucking, flicking widgets, random turning on and offs, etc etc are bigger than those.

    OMG. I could have swear that Apple paid Engadget to keep silence.

    Engadget gives the best and most unbiased reviews of ANY site regarding Android or any phone. Their Editor uses a N1 as his personal phone.

    They probably took longer because their are two versions of it released, two more coming, and also the real Galaxy S around Asia and EU.

    These Apple conspiracies are starting to drive me nuts, as are the AT&T ones. It's not Engadget's fault that this is a multi-platform release which seems to be entirely up to Samsung to promote. And since it's different iterations of the same phone some cross-comparisons are a must, in ADDITION to comparisons to other phones/carriers/services.
