Samsung Galaxy S
Samsung’s original Galaxy S smartphone wasn’t necessarily a huge leap forward for Android phones, but it struck gold anyway.
Samsung may not realize this at the time, but the Samsung Galaxy S-the first since 2010-has shaped the smartphone business for more than a decade. The Galaxy S had a competitive advantage over the Android phones that were messed up at the time.
Android hardware and software still find a balance, and Galaxy S provides a platform that Samsung can rely on. The Samsung Galaxy S is not the only phone. In fact, it is a complete series of mobile phones in various versions distributed among operators around the world. There are at least four options on U alone—one for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon—and the differences are very significant. For example, the Sprint version called Samsung Epic 4G has a QWERTY and 4G slide-out keyboard, while other models do not.
The core 4-inch Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy S defines the functions of the Galaxy S. It is one of the largest displays available in 2010, and its 800 x 480 resolution is impressive. Some people may encounter complaints about PenTile technology. screen. But it is brighter, more vivid, and higher in contrast than the LCD panels on competing phones. It also has another luxury Gorilla Glass from 2010, but due to delivery issues, some models of the phone are equipped with LCD screens. They are called Samsung Galaxy SL. Then there is the processor. This phone is equipped with a 1 GHz Hummingbird chip (ARM Cortex-A8 Exynos 3110), 512 MB of memory, and 8 GB or 16 GB of storage space. The tag has such a fast processor or such powerful graphics.
Kolibri is manufactured using 45-nanometer process technology. Today’s flagship has a 5 nm processor. Samsung equipped the Galaxy S with a 5 MP camera. Some models provide users with a 1.3-megapixel selfie camera, while others do not. The camera is sturdy, just like a photo application, TouchWiz 3.0 defines the quality of the software. It is built on Android 2.1 Eclair and includes seven splash screens, a large number of widgets, and even a social media feed like MySpace.
The device itself is very compact and convenient. It provides holding functions, such as support for a microSD card (up to 32GB) and headphone jack. It is “thin”-9.9 mm. It is priced at $399, which is not a high price by today’s standards. The popularity of the Samsung Galaxy S has been praised by the industry media. The media praised the screen, camera, and two days of battery life. Another important indicator to measure mobile phones is sales.
Samsung started selling Galaxy S globally in Singapore on June 4, 2010. People were waiting in line for their phones, and Samsung said its mobile partners sold the device at the end of the first weekend. Samsung has sold 24 million Galaxy S phones and sold more than 10 million in the first seven months of launch. This is a real success.
Few other mobile phones were so popular at the time. The harsh response of consumers led Samsung to release a sequel. In 2012, when the Galaxy III was launched, its device shipments exceeded Nokia to become the world’s largest mobile phone retailer. The original S is not without problems. A large number of choices caused confusion in the market, and a bad GPS failure affected the phone’s ability to quickly find users. Despite these shortcomings, S has found its place in the market and has set a benchmark for Android flagship products.
Without Samsung, mobile phones would not be what they are today, and without Galaxy S, Samsung would not be what they are today. The latest device in the Galaxy S series, S21 is the world’s leading device. Mobile phone manufacturers all over the world want to surpass them.
