Samsung Galaxy S camera shootout

4 carriers, 4 phones, 4 variations, 4 cameras!

Samsung’s Galaxy S for the US market – the Vibrant (T-Mobile), Captivate (AT&T), Epic 4G (Sprint), and Fascinate (Verizon) – share the same core specs, but diverge in appearance and implementation.

Unboxing the Samsung Fascinate, part 1

Last week Verizon sent me a Samsung Fascinate review unit, thus rounding up the US launch of the Galaxy S!

Unboxing the Samsung Epic 4G, part 1

It’s here – the Samsung Epic 4G, the most feature-packed Galaxy S phone yet!

First impressions? As I mentioned yesterday:

Wow… The Epic 4G is something else! I think it’s even better than the EVO 4G – love the dedicated cam key, and the keyboard is ├╝ber fab :)

Take the Captivate or Vibrant, replace GSM with CDMA, add 4G (WiMax), a landscape keyboard, a front-facing camera, a notification light, a shutter button, and an LED flash – that’s the Epic 4G.

Check out my unboxing video and jump to my first power on video below – it’s all quite epic :)
