Design

The overall design of the Galaxy S 4G is pretty much identical to the Vibrant's. They're the same size and feature the same 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen.

Left side

There's a volume rocker on the left side, and the right side features a power/lock button. We wish the smartphone also had a dedicated camera key.
