Hope most of you must have got 2.3.7, and use the theme from GOthemes, it will be superb phone.
So far this tiny set is one of the best lifesavers..
I keep it in my pocket as a wireless modem, for my locked iphone 4S-which is always on with airplane mode with wifi on.

I had a serious problem by using the wrong firmware, I used I5508, which bricked my phone, but at the service centre I got it back as 5503, then and there infront of the tech guy I made it Froyo as I had the laptop and my sw with me...
Goodluck to all..
Battery is a small issue...
Other things outweighs this small issue...
Dude, Samsung, now show up what you've said..
i called up gallery and they said. it will take more time..
Where's the froyo update for my galaxy?? i've been waiting since 2010...shame on you samsung for being so mediocre, so poor and so average!!
i hope you, samsung see it ... you are a failed company and brand ... all i see is people like me who bought samsung devices and the samsung support is a shit, we can not synchronize the device with pc ... omg you think they may be the best brands, giving this type of support ... i made a purchase unhappy when i bought my 3 galaxy: (
Whether we get update or not for this phone, there is one thing I have learnt: Android phones updates will be forgotten as soon as they made the big profit after sales. It is the same situation with Bada and Symbian phones.
Stop giving false hope and stsrt being true to your words samsung. I was really impressed when i first got my galaxy 5. But after a while the 2.1 seems to be very outdated. I've been waiting for this update for 6 months now. I think they will release the update when this phone is outfeatured by new models. I might switch phones next week samsung updates really is the downside. As for romania they are still testing! Testing what? They released galaxy mini with froyo which is basically the same hardware features except for a bigger screen and higher camera resolution. Common give us a break.
