The full version of Asphalt 5 is available for download in Samsung Apps at no charge. I thank Samsung for giving it free to all the users of Samsung Galaxy S. Anyway, this 3D racing game is priced at US$4.99 and is available at the developer’s site, GameLoft.com.

The game basically offers you 4 racing modes :-

Each of us in this review programme have covered different aspects of Samsung Galaxy S in our reviews, below are mine :-

One thing I want to stress is that no phone is perfect, but there will be a phone that is perfect for you.

Samsung Galaxy S does have its strengths and weaknesses but it successfully amazed me in many ways. To wrap up my Samsung Galaxy S review series, the impressed me decided to do a quick and simple survey to gather opinions and first impression on Samsung Galaxy S from random individuals in a shopping mall after I show them the phone and let them play with it for a while. Below is the video :-

If you are interested in getting the phone, go to the nearest Maxis Center and check out the phone. They are having a promotion right now offering you the phone at only RM1,699 under 1 year contract. The normal price without contract is RM2,599.

Now good luck to all fellow Maxis10 reviewers.




Maxis10 – Samsung Galaxy S Reception Test

Saturday 17 July 2010 @ 3:56 pm

Phone signal lost is a very hot topic these days after iPhone 4 was tested to have such problem due to its antenna design.

As we known that the antenna of Samsung Galaxy S is located at the bottom of the phone, below the battery. So, we might have a concern that the phone may suffer the same significant signal lost as the iPhone 4.

Therefore, I did a simple reception test on Samsung Galaxy S and below is the video :-

Friday 16 July 2010 @ 1:54 am

A few friends, blog readers and twitter followers asked me about the battery life of Samsung Galaxy S in the past few days. Me too was interested to know what is the battery performance under extreme usage. Besides, I’m sure potential customers would like to see some statistics so that they can stop wondering about the battery performance of Samsung Galaxy S.

Therefore, I performed 4 battery tests 5 battery tests in the past 30+ hours 40+ hours and finally we have some answers to the battery related questions. Below are the objectives of all 4 battery tests I did :-

  • Test 1: Find out how long will the battery last (from 100% battery level to 0%) when connecting to an active Wifi Connection
  • Test 2: Find out how long will the battery last (from 100% battery level to 0%) when connecting to an active 3G Data Connection
  • Test 3: Find out how long will the battery last under continuous movie playing

Maxis10 – Samsung Galaxy S Camera : HD Video

Tuesday 13 July 2010 @ 9:23 am

The 5-megapixel camera of Samsung Galaxy S is able to capture High Definition (HD) videos at the resolution of 1280×720 (720p) @ 30 frames-per-second (fps). The video quality is undeniably good. Check out the 2 minutes long outdoor video below that I took in HD to see for yourself.

The default playing quality is 360p (or 480p), so just select 720p (or even 1080p) if you wish to watch the video in HD.

You may also view the video in a larger size at Youtube.

What do you think of the video quality?
