Samsung Fascinate Cell Phone Review

Introduction

Samsung’s Galaxy S mobile phones include the Captivate (AT&T), Epic 4G (Sprint), Vibrant (T-Mobile), and Fascinate (Verizon). Each of these has a 4” Super AMOLED display, 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, Android 2.1 operating system, and Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. As the Android-based cell phone competition heats up, we decided to take a look to see if a Galaxy S phone would stand out in the crowd – we looked at the Samsung Fascinate from Verizon.

The reviewed phone comes in a small black box that slides into a white sleeve which is adorned with a picture of the phone. In Figure 1, you can see the black box protruding from the sleeve.

Inside the box, as shown in Figure 2, are several small pamphlets, including one entitled “Tips, Hints and Shortcuts.” Also included is a USB to microUSB charging cable, which plugs into the included plug for charging from the wall. The Samsung Fascinate comes with a pre-installed 16 GB microSDHC memory card and a 1500 mAh battery. The phone itself can also be seen in Figure 2.

The Fascinate is a sturdy black phone with slightly rounded corners and a large touch screen. It is constructed of black plastic and accentuated with a slim chrome strip on the sides. Measuring 2.53 x 0.39 x 5.02 inches (64 x 10 x 125 mm) and weighing 4.92 oz. (139.5 g), the Fascinate is almost as big as the Droid X, but it is lighter and fits more easily into a pocket.
