    The main screen has four icons and I beleive the icons explain the function intended… then why should the name for the invidual icon be there… also why do we need the number of the screen that we are in…
    HD video recording is great but do we have option for editting video on the phone…
    HD video recording will become a hit once N8 will be out..

    @blugeni
    why should samsung invest time in making software ,when google is so committed in doing it(for free)… what samsung can do is to make apps for the android market and give those apps(free) for their mobiles or maybe(it depends on how good it is) sell for money for other android phones… that seems more logical….

    don’t tell me its better than Sense… i have used sense and its way better experience than this..
    Best UI would be a combination of WebOS and Android… that would come default by Ginger(version after froyo- Android OS 2.2)

    fazil my friend, u won’t be disappointed with the new touchwiz3 UI of samsung, along with the HTC sense it is considered to be the best in the business as of now….

    Finally good hardware to match the flex of android, was not impressed with the moto milestone and HTC may never launch the desire in india + there customer service has been curt and rude. 4 inch sAMOLED, a sweet humming bird CPU under the hood, I am sold! Can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    Samsung did make a good move(galaxy s)…. but a bad move releasing galaxy (old one) and not updating it(leaving all the potential customers, not even updated bluetooth file transfer)… I am sure it won’t sell much for 31K…. bringing the price down to 20k would be logical…

    They would do it once nexus one,htc desire and Nokia N8 are released… it would go down to 17k.. maybe less than that in 6 months…

    Bada is the worst move from samung yet.. also the custom UI from samsung in galaxy S scks big time… samsung should stop doing UI software…

    But the fact it still survives is the hardware quality… the screen explained above is better than the one shipped in the new iphone… also bada has bluetooth 3.0 which is very fast and uses very less battery power…

    Samsung should fire everyone who works on UI front and hire someone who can do the job.. also fire the person who came up with the BADA OS(on wave)….
