Im from philippines..this is a great phone for its price.i got it fom italy..im not dt impressed of nkt having gorilla glass.but i foud out myself that it is scratch resistant.first i sratch a small part on the side.nothing happens..then i scratch the whole screen and still smooth.no scratches......
the things i noticed to change in 2.3.6 are:
1.new lockscreen interface - light swipe to unlock not like before that you have to drag till it reaches the side
2.phone logs - with shortcut to messages and phone logs of each recipient/caller/sender
4.faster touch response
5.new homepage for the browser with twitter integration (but i still prefer using dolphin HD browser)
6.louder loud speaker (better than before) and buffled sounds are minimized
7.faster gps lock...
that's all i've noticed...
this is for firmware update on galaxy w here in the philippines (from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6)...

What class SD card are you using? It's not supposed to heat up when you're only using your music player. Do you have other apps running while playing music?.
i have a problem with the stock music player. it often jitters and skips especially when the phone is a bit warm..i have tried 3rd party player but the problem still persist..is there a fix for this?
For malaysian SGW user, please note that there is a firmware update 2.3.6 you can either use kies or OTA, just update my, not sure what the additional feature been updated, first thing i noticed is the swipe to unlock similar to ics " yipee" much easier compare to the old one which u need to push the screen saver all the way, just swipe ur finger through the lock icon.
Please share incase u found new feature from the update.

Do hardware controls really matter for gaming? How is the gaming experience on W? Also, Android 4.0 ICS upgrade is confirmed for play, but samsung isnt saying anything regarding W. So, which way should I go? I'm a big gaming fan, i want a Super fast processor & android 4.0 is a must. Play is beyond my reach, so should i put my money on samsung? Waiting for ur reply.. Thanx in advance!

Bought this mobile a week ago! I can say it is really good for the price. I downloaded many apps and no problem. It is super fast. Camera not the best but very decent. Video not tested yet. Recommended!!!
