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?

Maxis10: Samsung Galaxy S TV-Out Feature

Thursday 8 July 2010 @ 11:02 am

I’ve uploaded a short video in Youtube showing you how to use the TV-Out feature of Samsung Galaxy S. By using TV-Out, the image you see on the phone will be displayed on the TV. This makes the TV-Out feature comes in handy in several occasions, such as :-

  • Sharing with your friends and family the pictures and videos you’ve captured.
  • Playing songs through the TV with better sound quality.
  • Slide-show presentation
  • Playing movies on the hotel TV when you are traveling
  • Playing games on a larger display if you think the 4″ AMOLED screen is too small. :)
  • Many more…

To enable TV-Out, go to Applications > Settings > Sound and display > TV out. By the way, the TV system in Malaysia is PAL.

When TV-Out is enabled, the sound will come out from the TV speaker making watching movie using Samsung Galaxy S a different experience.

Hope you like this video.

Maxis10: Samsung Galaxy S Super AMOLED Screen Close Up

Thursday 8 July 2010 @ 2:41 am

The Super AMOLED touchscreen is one of the main selling points of Samsung Galaxy S. When I first turned on the phone after receiving it, I was totally blown away by the clarity and colour richness. You should really check it out yourself if you have the chance.

What is AMOLED?

AMOLED stands for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (LED). According to Wikipedia, an AMOLED display consists of OLED pixels that have been deposited or integrated onto a thin film transistor (TFT) array to form a matrix of pixels that generate light upon electrical activation, which functions as a series of switches to control the current flowing to each of the pixels.

Basically, the main advantages of AMOLED are :-

  • Thin and lightweight screen
  • Low power consumption
  • Wide viewing angle

What is Super AMOLED?

Super AMOLED is the enhanced version of AMOLED produced by Samsung. Super AMOLED integrates the touch sensor into the screen rather than being overlaid on top of the screen. The direct benefits include a thinner touch screen and lighter phone weight. That’s why Samsung Galaxy S weights is only 118g and have a thickness of only 9.9mm. Other advantages of Super AMOLED as compared to AMOLED or normal TFT screen are :-

  • 20% brighter screen
  • Wider viewing angle (Samsung Galaxy S has 180 degree viewing angle)
  • 80% less sunlight reflection (overcome the shortcoming of AMOLED)
  • 20% reduced power consumption (even lesser power consumption than iPhone4 Retina Display)

Let’s take a look of how Samsung explain Super AMOLED in the video below :-

Wednesday 7 July 2010 @ 1:07 pm

I’ve been receiving a lot of phishing emails sent from asking the users to secure the account by clicking a link in the email. See the screen shot of the phishing email below :-

Maybank2U Phishing Email

The email looks very suspicious when I first received it :-

  • 1. The title has obvious spelling mistake.
  • 2. The email was sent from an unknown source outside Malaysia.
  • 3. The link to secure your account looks legit when you hover your mouse over the link.
  • In fact, the link is actually pointing to (phishing website)

The Whois Record of does not have any information about Malayan Banking Berhad. However, the link is pointing to though.
