Samsung has done some tweaking to the android ui via their touchwiz interface. I haven't been using Samsung before but I was expecting something obtrusive to the whole android experience. It turns out this time round the customization didn't actually obscure but in fact in somewhat enhances the experience somewhat.
More on the ui later.
The phone itself is one slim machine. I think they were going with a minimalist approach and by jove I think they got it. For a premium device it feels a bit light. But personally I find the build quality quite excellent. True the paper thin battery cover may scare you but you do wonder how many times that u actually would have to do a quick pull of the battery innit?
Will probably comment a bit more on the hardware later.
