Samsung may be better known for its televisions in Australia, but the South Korean company has made a splash in the mobile phone market, largely thanks to its popular Galaxy S Android smartphone. Samsung also has a rich history of producing capable "feature phones", and has even created its own mobile operating system called Bada. The Samsung Wave smartphone is the first mobile phone to use the Bada OS, with more phones to follow next year. Samsung also manufactures smartphones running the Windows Phone 7 pplatform.
2 / 7
The Samsung Galaxy S possesses the best display we've seen on a smartphone (though we're yet to review the iPhone 4). However, this Android handset is let down by a few niggling annoyances, particularly the all-plastic build and the TouchWIZ UI, which that lacks the polish this premium smartphone deserves. The Galaxy S is a great smartphone, but it sits a notch below HTC's Desire.
