Design

The Fascinate is very similar to the Samsung Vibrant from T-Mobile in design. Like the rest of the Galaxy S family, the smartphone also features a gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen.

Picture quality

The camera offers a number of editing options, including different scene modes, metering, ISO settings, and smile detection. We were pretty happy with the end picture quality.
