Samsung Galaxy S Plus - Review

In this review, we will talk about the Samsung Galaxy S Plus. Samsung Galaxy S Plus is almost similar to the first Galaxy S, apart from the other chipset, which puts ahead a much faster processor worth 1.4 GHz.

The Samsung Galaxy S Plus features a solid and sleek build with simple to use multimedia functions for your use. It comes with a processor with the clock speed of 1.4 GHz makes the phone perform 40% faster.  Rather than the traditional PowerVR SGX540 graphics, the Qualcomm chipset gives the user the comfort of viewing Adreno 205 graphics. The prior graphics were included in the original Galaxy S model. The hummingbird chipset of Samsung has been substituted with the Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon. What does the T mean? “T” signifies that the chipset is known as a quicker version of the Vanilla MSM8255 chipset, which can be noticed in most of the Android Smartphone that have hit the market. Samsung Galaxy S Plus carries a MicroSD card under its battery compartment, so easy changing has gone out of question. The Samsung Galaxy S Plus is a sleek phone, measuring up to 122 mm in length, 64 mm in width and in terms of thickness, the phone measures to just under 10 mm. The phone is marked by attractiveness alongside being slim. The phone weighs only 119g. For more information, just go through the review.

Now in the review, we will discuss some of the features of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S Plus carries a 4’’ display screen, having a resolution of 480x800 pixels. The touchscreen display screen on the cellular is capacitive, this makes it very responsive. Thanks to its Super AMOLED display screen, the display of the cellular is magnificently sharp and accurate. Reading through textual content is really an easy job to do on the cellular, whereas viewing images and WebPages seems to be sharp and crisp. There are few drawbacks of the device are, there is no convenient key for the camera and some peoples, who like taking pictures, a convenient key might have been able to do charms. Furthermore, the plastic materials for the cellular are prone to fingerprints, contributing the unit to be messy quickly. Last but not least, the design is just about unchanged.

The navigation on Samsung Galaxy S Plus is very good. The device runs on a 1.4 GHz processor, because of which, tossing between apps and screens seemed to be very smooth. The overall performance of the cellular is extremely good; it is very instant, responsive and fast. Multi-tasking on the cellular is also quite an easy and comfortable task.

Now in the review, we will take a look at the camera on the cellular.

Samsung Galaxy S Plus features a 5 MP camera but without flash. The camera is not capable of recording HD videos with 720p @ 30 fps. The image quality of the phone is quite good. However, images turn out slightly underexposed and colors are duller than we would’ve liked.There is a front-facing VGA camera too, right above the display screen, suited to video calling purposes.

Now the review will discuss the other features of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S Plus operates on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) by means of that, you will get access to stuff just like Gmail, an app for YouTube, Quick Office for Android as well as others. Furthermore, at the time Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) runs on the cellular, the browser of the phone comes in complete support for Adobe flash. WebPages which are Flash-heavy could be accessed without having much of lagging, and that is another pleaser. As being the Smartphone runs on Android Os, you'll have the option of syncing with Gmail, IMAP and exchange accounts. The device can also be capable of integrating with social networking sites. Some other options that come with the phone contain Bluetooth, Wi-Fi. The device comes in support of wide range of music and video codec’s like MP3, AAC, WAV and MPEG-4.The phone comes in support of DLNA, which enables content streaming with other devices that are DLNA enabled. The device also has the standard SWYPE text enabled keyboard.

To conclude off of this review, we’d suggest that Samsung Galaxy S Plus is a Smartphone that offer good features all around, the camera on the cellular is good, and so can be its display screen. The Samsung Galaxy S Plus is a power packed Android Smartphone.
