Samsung Galaxy S 4G Now Torn Apart As Well

Well it seems the teardown guys have been hard at work as not only was the Motorola Atrix 4G the subject of a teardown the other day to display the smartphones innards, but also now it appears the Samsung Galaxy S 4G has joined the internal displaying game.

According to an article over on Intomobile, those rip apart guys over at iFixit have been at it again and have disassembled the Android 2.2 Froyo Samsung Galaxy S 4G handset.

The latest version of the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile is virtually a replica of the original Samsung Galaxy S but with the excption of a Sony Ericsson Thor M5730 mobile modem allowing the Samsung Galaxy S 4G to play nice on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.

Apparently other components, which were originally constructed in aluminium, have been replaced by magnesium to make the Samsung Galaxy S 4G stronger and lighter, while the touch screen controller is the one and the same found in the Motorola Atrix 4G.

For those that enjoy seeing what is exactly inside a smartphone the iFixit guys have their teardown of the Android smartphone over 3 pages including numerous images and they say the Samsung Galaxy S 4G scores a 6 for reparability with 10 being the easiest.

    Hello All,

    My recommendation is not to buy this phone… The Vibrant is a better configured phone… This is a total failure on TMO and Samsung… Vibrant owners keep your Vibrants… Aside from the normal TMO carrier neutering of hardware see my reasons below.

    This phone has two major issues… First the way the internal memory is partitioned it leaves about 500Kb for use… This make the phone totally useless to the normal to heavy user… I can't load the same apps I have on the original Vibrant the phone just doesn't have the space the way the memory is partitioned (TMO – Samsung total failure). Second, some of the original Vibrant widgets or missing the on the new phone,,, such as the Daily Briefing,,, this just sucks!!! (TMO – Samsung total failure)…

    I own a non carrier Galaxy S, the TMO Vibrant, and the new piece of crap TMO Galaxy 4G. The Vibrant is just a better configured phone for the neutered US market…

    I was going to use the new Galaxy 4G for app and product development but with the memory issues I think I'm just going to return it and use an HTC phone. The Display isn't that great but at leased I can use it…
