    Im a Inc fanboy all the way. I think the Droid X is gimmicky, cheap looking, and junk. I love HTC sense!!!! I am currently on pre order for the Inc, waiting patiently. Now if my Inc ships the first of August. And the Fascinate is released mid-August with nice reviews. I may have to consider Selling my Inc when I get it and getting the Fascinate. This thing looks really sweet. Anyone else already pondering these thoughts?

    could you just exchange it?

    EDIT: (INSERT my standard rant about Samsung phones being unsupported, having crappy UI, and gimmickier than carnival)

    Yes in the past not the most reliable. Thats why I said if the reviews are good. I wouldnt just say this phone or Samsung are garbage just yet. Lets see if this is a new era for Samsung in the Smart Phone arena!

    The Samsung Omnia was an awesome phone, and the Fascinate does look nice, nice spec, nice looking, and great camera details, like panorama, face detection, and burst just like on omnia, BUT BUT BUT

    It comes with a Bing Experience o_O not Google Experience, that for me is a deal breaker right there.

    Personally I plan to keep my phone for 2 years and then get whatever is really good at that time. Just like I always do.

    Why are we knocking on the bing thing. Lets just wait and see. This was more of a thread question about what youd do if the reviews were great. With the look of it so far. We dont know anything about the bing yet. Could be vastly improved and sweet! Im looking forward to finding out more.

    Sadly we won't know the REAL reviews until it's been out at least a month or 2, but 3-4 months would be better.

    While I love CNET and check them out for all major purchases, the biggest thing I look at are user reviews. Thats what REALLY matters. What the phone does in the real world with actual users.

    Maybe I'm biased but my Omina, though winmo was a handicap, was pretty nice.
    Added spb mobile shell and a few other apps and it performed well.
    Good reception, well better than my Dinc, and several updates, to include unlocking gps and even a firmware update this year '10.
    And this phone was released in '08.
    *my experience with multiple sammyphones is somewhat limited

    I wasnt trying to start a Facsinate exclusive thread or bash. Just what would you do if you have seen it, like it, great reviews. Would you consider it.

    And a REALLY big question is "does Samsung intend to support this phone?" In the past, the answer to that questions has been uniformally: "Support, why would we do that? We already HAVE their money."



    EDIT: Isn't the Bing Experience basically hitting yourself with the claw end of a hammer repeatedly?
    Hopefully you'd be able to turn it off/change everything to Mother Google.

    LOL. I think what people are trying to tell you is "NO", they will not consider it.

    I broadened it to say that "no, I am not considering ANY new phone for the next two years". The only way I would switch is if the DINC starting blowing up and they recall it. Then I won't have a choice. ;)

    I need to retract my statement, was a little too harsh. I dislike their phones omnia notwithstanding, it's their UI and product support. The Fascinate looks to be a very quality build and if it had the google exp. rather than the bing exp. it would be a contender in my book

    No, i certainly wouldn't consider it.

    I don't like the design.
    I don't like the UI rework (sorry, but I like having a phone that doesn't look like an iOS phone)
    I don't like the "bing experience" (I would rather pluck teeth than deal with bing).
    I don't like Samsung's track record on Android phones.

    I'd consider exchanging for it, if there was a phone I thought I'd like better. Granted, it'd take a lot to trade away from a phone I'm happy with. No matter how many reviews you read, or demos you play with, you won't know if you'd be happy with a phone until you've had it for a little while. You wouldn't want to do the exchange just to find you don't like the new phone.

    Erm....i'm not bashing anything, The Samsung Fascinate looks lovely, but the Bing thing doesn't... IMO if you buy an android phone made by GOOGLE, you should have a GOOGLE experience on the phone...

    The Bing Experiences I've sen in review thus far, don't seem to be as nice, just an opinion, no need to get mad lol

    Well i had it back on my Omnia when WinMO, but don't think its been on many if any other phones tbh...

    But you can go to Bing on any phone and see the experience your self, its just kinda clumpy and ulgy, like it always has been on the Desktop version. IMO the Google experiences just fits the phones they make better, as it should.


    I agree the way the UI works on the Fascinate reminds me of iOS and also the menu setup on WinMO on my old Omnia... FUGLY IMO

    Also the Fascinate comes with features like this:

    Lifestyle features:
    - V CAST Music with Rhapsody

    Agreed Samsung have defo got the screen technology of the future, BUT they can't get enough of them out... So until they do its kinda useless to most people.

    The Super AMOLED screen is beautiful, but TBH the regular AMOLED on the Dinc is just as nice :)
