yeah, seems like in my region (Indonesia), the S isn't available (yet)...

I might go for the X first, since Im running out of time *as in money need to be spent quickly*

or you reckon I should wait more?I asked my local dealer and they said there were no info on the upcoming S release

What are your first impressions?
Just got the box delivered at home and since my gf was more excited then me I let her open the box So her first impression was "whooo it's big!" next thing she noticed was the weight, she compared it to having a bankcard in her hands (figure of speech ofcourse :P) Anyway, first good news was, she thought it was to big for her so I'm not loosing my new awsome phone (atm at least )

Now for my first impressions coming from a Desire Z, it's indeed a big phone, but I happy I didn't go for the One X as that one was really huge. The phone is light as a feather and the screen is absolutely amazing! I used to have a Galaxy S so when I got the Desire Z I was a bit disappointed about the screen, so happy to have an AMOLED again At first I was a bit afraid of the qHD that many had discussions about on this forum, but I must say I don't really notice it, not to say not at all, you can see it but me and my gf are going cross-eyed trying to focus on it trying to see it.

The phone itself feels nice (I got the gray one), the back feels smooth, but don't think it will slip out of my hand because of it (can't think of the thought I would ) Software-wise I've only installed tiny tower so far as that was one of the programs that would be a bit laggy on my Desire Z and it's running really smooth

Some things I do miss atm but probably will get used to soon enough is a hardware button at the bottom to wake my phone, the fact that there is no longer a menu-button (roms out there already have that I know but wan't to wait before rooting just in case)
Besides this I can't tell much more about this phone just yet, hell I have it an hour what do you expect

TLTR: Already love this phone so far

Received a One X and S yesterday and might have to revalidate some of my earlier comments.

The One Xs software is not sloppy/laggy at all. No idea what they did to the phone I was looking at in the store.
The screen still is just awesome, no doubt about that. And the speaker seems to be slightly better than the Ss one.

Still 3 negative points:
- Its still too big for me.
- It gets really fast really hot. After just 5 minutes of normal usage it already is almost 10C hotter than my old Desire gets after 20 minutes of really heavy usage.
- The battery drains so fast, its incredible. Like really really REALLY fast.


Guess Ill be sending the X back, keep the S a little longer and wait what Samsung got ready for us next week.

The only thing writes me out..is as a comparison I had it against my dhd and the screen looks smaller. Weird
