The Samsung Galaxy S isn’t always easily recognized, but it is the beginning of what will go down as one of the most successful flagship smartphone series in history over the last seven years. It is the original S device from the same flagship series that released the S2, S3 and all the way up to the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone that is available today.

Samsung got things right from the beginning of this smartphone line with the Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that is still my favorite type of display to look at today. It comes with the Samsung Exynos 3 system chip and a 5-megapixel camera. You will find it hard finding one of these in excellent condition as it was released in March of 2010.
