When I bought this phone it had some of the best stats on the market. To buy it outright was well over $700 and it was an amazing phone. As phones began to progress and Android really took off, 1.5 Cupcake became old. This phone is non-updateable (With Rogers atleast) and now has multiple issues. Texts stop receiving, pictures stop taking and saving, and the battery life is now terrible. It's 12PM now, phone was fully charged at 8am. It is now at 30% (4 hours) at 25% brightness. My love for this phone has gone down. Still love the size of everything, performance is now terrible however.
hi all, does any one know how to adjust personal photos to fit my screen? I've tried all options within phone but the pictures are either too big on the screen or blurry. Thanks.

I bought this phone on 6th January 2012 from a well known Samsung Dealer in Dhaka. The seller is personally known to me & he gave me more than 100% warranty. Bringing home, I discovered that there is a tiny white "dot" on the bottom part of the screen & also the HOME key's not working ! I rushed back to the shop & the seller changed it....bringing home the 2nd one, I found the earphone's not working!! I went back to shop again...& the shop owner requested me to give him some time like 24 hours.....finally, I got my fresh I5700 Spica and I've been using it for 3 days now and I'm 100% satisfied with the performance.
And for the defects, Samsung Authority in my locality said that it was an accident.
Whatever, I've got a fresh one with Android 2.1, and I'm very happy with battery backup as well (Fully charged 3 days ago, still about 80% remains :)
Spica Rocks !
