I Just got this phone 3 days ago and for me, this phone rocks! Hope this will help answer some of the questions I found around here.
Display is reeeeally good. Very bright, crisp and clear, even with the brightness set to 50%. IMHO, GW display is at par with my cousin's Arc S' bravia engine display.
The 1.4ghz CPU lived up to my expectations. Tested asphalt 6 & dead space and experienced no lag, stutters, and whatnot.
No problem with browsing either. Though i've noticed occasional lags while browsing or while the page is still loading (maybe because the internet connection in our place is not that good). it also plays 720p videos with no stutters.
Battery life is OK. it can last for 8-10 hours with heavy use of games, wifi, video, texting, etc. while it can stand for more than 36 hours with light usage.
The 5 megapixel camera is so-so. Nothing much to say about the 5 megapixel but.. err.. yea, nothing much to say. Just so-so.
Last but not the least, I don't have the slightest idea when this'll come out in India.
This is by far the most bang for the buck mid-ranged smartphone that i've ever had (coming from nokia n95 and HTC desire). If your budget is tight but still want to have excellent browsing and gaming quality experience, this phone will not fail you. Thanks for reading and God bless India.
I've been searching every inches of Google's server regarding Skype call using this device, and freaking annoyed cuz i couldn't find any.
Anyone has gotten this phone yet ? mind sharing ? i'd like to know if this device supported Skype video call. TY

rkoforever90, 18 Dec 2011i dont think so,nokia was out of action for some time but they are back,now lumia is the hot t... moreAmazing how many people would buy a phone because its "supercool" and "feels expensive" rather than what it can ACTUALLY DO. No surprise Apple will continue making a 60% profit on every iDevice. Do u even know what a Windows Phone device is capable of compared to Android?
st3lla89, 17 Dec 2011hello, can anyone tell me how galaxy w connect to pc via usb cable?? i tried many time but sti... morefirst u go to settings -> wireless and network -> USB utilities -> click on "connect storage to PC " button and plug in USB cable..thats all...
zayed D.JZEE, 17 Dec 2011its good phone..man its Samsung new generations..not Nokia i dont think so,nokia was out of action for some time but they are back,now lumia is the hot topic everywhere two of my friends bought the phone.oh such a sexy device gs2 looks cheap and oridinary compared to it.also windows phone wow excellent u.i,it feels supercool and expensive,not like boring homescreen scrolling on copy cat android .anyway windows phone os 8 with swipe u.i is coming but if my budget allows i may consider one.
I have one and have been using the Galaxy W for a month.. it is way too good on it's level.. can't compare with any phone because every phone has it's good and bad side.. the only "PROBLEM" of this Galaxy is......."BATTERY LIFE".. Please.. Please Samsung.. Do something about it..!!
pat, 17 Dec 2011Me and my wife want this device so hard. However I let her buy first since my current phone is... moreThats a very shallow reason not to like this phone. I installed a keyboard replacement app. Now, my galaxy w has haptic feedback when i type messages.
Well i think this galaxy W is always the better choice. The device is faster and cheaper than the other models in its category. U'll enjoy android 2.3.5 gingerbread too ;)
