A few things I don't like about this phone is the lack of a trackball. I came from a Nexus, so it's hard to go without it since that was the only way it notified me of a text or missed call. I also loved how I can use it to scroll in text, now I have to try pretty hard to get an accurate touch into where I want it to be.


I guess you can't have it all though, right?

I agree with the scroll but for the track ball I am not sure to understand? When you missed a call on the Vibrant you can scroll down a menu that is hidden in the top of the phone ( swipe the screen up to down ) and the menu will appear with all missed events and more.

I think he is referring to the fact the track ball would pulse or glow showing that he had missed a call or got a text message.

You are probably right but I never use a black berry so I have no idea about the ball XD I know she exist but what she do?? So I just try to call myself and see what happen if I miss the call, a little icon appear in the screen to warn you that some SMS,phone call, update, or event have been missed.

well the trackball acts like a mouse if you will, instead of moving around a mouse you roll the ball.

Do you know guys a place where I can buy some hard case, or classy extra back cover for the Galaxy S? I would like to try some accessories with the phone.
