I bought a Galaxy W, but the model was SGH-T679M, not I8150. I haven't seen any I8150's advertised anywhere in Canada. The model I did buy, however, is not a quad-band as the box claimed. The first clue something was wrong was the cover of the Warranty booklet, which stated "Dual band". After back-and-forth with Samsung technical support over the past couple of days, Samsung states that the handset is dual-band only. Not very pleased that the handset was not as advertised.

And a while ago an oily area suddenly appeared in the center of my SG Wonder. WTF is this sh*t?? Does anyone here having the same issue??

for 5.1 to be working on this phone, three things should be done:
1) headphones connected.
2) Equalizer (in music settings)is set to normal.
3) 'Sound effects' (in music settings) is set to normal.

Enjoy the charming 5.1 effect :)

Do you have a hearing problem ? Or your caller have speech problem ? maybe your network provider signal is weak in your area, I never experienced can't understand word from ear piece, isn't headphone quality determine the sound ? There are so many way to adjust the brightness of the screen, maybe you to have eye sight problem as well, poor thing get a monochrome dumb phone for senior citizen, perhaps that would solved your problems.

The galaxy w is a phone that does not look attractive.
With the same hardware if put in a better housing it would have attracted more people.
The screen is 3.7 TFT LCD which I did not find special. Its is not bright enough, SC LCD is much better, and in sunlight it is washed out.
Sound quality of the phone is really bad. Sometimes I can not understand the words said in the earpiece. Handsfree sound is a disaster.
The phone is fast and Android is OK.
Battery life if 3g or Wifi on is about 6 hours with moderate usage, not good.

If I had the choice now, I wouldnt buy it.
