Samsung Galaxy S 4G from T-MobileThe Samsung Galaxy S 4G is an entertainment powerhouse. If you’re looking for a phone that can offer excellent photo and video quality, with excellent choices for live and on-demand TV, this is the phone for you. The screen is gorgeous, the battery life is impressive, the camera/camcorder capture everyday memories with excellent quality, and the gaming experience is fun.

Though there were some issues with voice quality and a few minor frustrations relating to the lock screen and access to the camera settings, the Galaxy S 4G is a solid device with some impressive features.

If you’re more interested in Facebook, gaming, video, and email than you are in gabbing on the phone, this is the device for you. Voice quality isn’t horrible by any means, or even particularly bad, but it is the weakest point for what is, in all other respects, a powerful and fun device.
