    My friend has a galaxy S, but he says he does not have any apps taking advantage of the camera. Are there any uses of that front facing camera, or its just there for show or for people to snoop on to you?

    I don't understand why this is unusual for some people, front facing cameras (and video calling) have been a standard feature of 3G phones here for the last four years. Last time i checked, Australia wasn't at the forefront of telephony (our broadband network averages 2.8Mbps). :p

    If we are freakishly ahead of the curve, the stupid iphone "facetime" ads would make more sense. I have no idea why they'd advertise wifi video chat as revolutionary in a country with half a decade of network video calling.

    I thought the UK was at least on par with Australia...

    Nope

    It's a gimmick like the rest of the phone.

    Unless lag, GPS, battery etc etc are features:thinking:
