The Galaxy S 4G looks a lot like Samsung's earlier Galaxy S handset the Samsung Vibrant. The 4-inch Super AMOLED display is lovely, and you can customize the seven home screens. Below the display are four touch controls, while the second camera lens sits just above.

The Galaxy S 4G has a trim profile, but its construction feels rather fragile.

The back cover feels a bit flimsy as well. The main camera lens is in the top left corner.
