Got this phone now (was in need of a cheap Android, multitouch phone)
The screen resolution could have been better. For now I like it, but have problems connecting it to my PC. It will not connect to the PC as a mass storage device. Will not connect to Samsung Kies, but for some reason I managed to sync it with Windows Media Player.
Next I am going to try to sync the mini-SD-card with the computer, to store som video and photos on the phone - and transfer photos taken with the phone)

I'm just wondering, is there a Samsung model wherein there's a flash on its camera? I've been checking its models and features and none has a flash so far...flash is important to me

It could be main competitor to SE X8, be it with at least some kind of design. But it's not just ugly, it's just not the design at all.

The name "Galaxy 3" is wrong, I think. It has worse specification than Galaxy spica

SWIPE was supposed to be on the i8000...

It never happened, or it did but only in certain markets and then seemed to vanish with the WM6.5 upgrade - doubt this feature will make it to production

> In reply to Imran @ 2010-06-15 15:48 from xBiA - click to readYeah but still.. the original Omnia came out what 2 years ago? Well they are cutting costs but hey I really do believe they would sell a lot more galaxy 3's with a decent phone, yet 50 more expensive.

The phone is perfect until you get to the screen. And every time you9ll be playing around with the phonu you'll be looking at the screen. So the screen is a big factor. I'm not saying to put an AMOLED in, TFT is just fine, but with a better resolution.

This is an ideal next phone of mine =D

But gsmarena can you please clarify regarding - HSDPA 3.6Mbps. because in your preview review that was stated but in your specs its 7.2 Mbps.

So what is really the 3G speed?

Thanks! =D
