Review: Samsung Vibrant
The Vibrant is one of the better Android handsets available from T-Mobile. It beats the CLIQ and CLIQ XT hands down on many levels. It easily offers one of the best displays available in T-Mobile's entire offering. Some may not like the large size of the device (a result of the large display), and those people could be happy with the smaller myTouch 3G Slide. It also doesn't have a physical keyboard, so those who require one might also have to stick with the myTouch 3G Slide.
The media performance of the Vibrant is above par for Android devices. Additions to the music player software are welcome and appreciated. The camera software is more advanced, and happens to take great pictures, too. Even video captured with the Vibrant is good.
Browsing is decent, calls are decent, battery life is outstanding. Those are all things to like.

My complaints are mostly with the menu system, and the locked-down version of Android that comes with the Vibrant. It simply isn't as flexible and customizable as many of the competing Android handsets (and I personally don't like the way it looks.) However, many people may have no problem with it.
If you've been cold on T-Mobile's Android lineup to-date, the Vibrant is something to get red hot about. Well, maybe a nice warm orange. Either way, it's a solid addition to T-Mobile's Android lineup.
