You can still extract more battery juice if you use Startup Audit to disable some apps you probably won't use much (Maps, Location, etc), and use Advanced Task Killer set to Aggressive. You can also root your phone (the best and easiest method is http://forum.xda-developers.co...p?t=1320350) and remove apps that load by themselves which you might not use, that's another option.

> In reply to Rei @ 2011-12-01 08:34 from vxiI - click to readActually i can play Full HD videos in my galaxy w given that the size should not exceed 1GB. Otherwise, the video can not be played on the built-in video player, or can play but without audio.

I have installed QQ player from android market and it can play full HD but only up to 1.5GB, but the last played function is not working. QQ player will fast forward it until it reaches your last played time of the video.

One thing i only realized, that 1.4 GHz processor could really do a lot but with a little sacrifice. Dual cores are the best but HTC's cant play even MKV and FLV video formats.

I would recommend getting a case to protect the screen and lens from now on :)

I heard that this model was launched in UK, but for some reason suddenly disappeared frm the market, some say it is out of stock, n some says it has some issues, don't know the exact reason, but hoping that whenever it may launch in India all its bugs may get fixed.

Everything about this phone seems to be fantastic.. Just doubtful whether the 1500 mh battery gives enough talk time. Any updates on this owners ?
