This is a smartphone. Not just any smartphone, an android smartphone. Easily the most powerful OS atm (iPhones are severely limited by Apple themselves). This thing can download so much stuff completely free, you can virtually completely change it.
I am not quite so sure on the android vs.Symbian, but thats because only a symbian touch keyboard has ever been able to keep up with my typing speed. Android is superior everywhere else, and for normal people (:P) it should be woefully better than symbian.
Do this phone have video calling facility??? coz no secondary camera :-(

tchipper, 09 Apr 2010What is so spectaculos in a new phone without Ofice? Or just touchscreen is important?it depends on your need.
and i haven't see anybody which saying the touchscreen as the main advantage.
i pick this phone because off it's processor speed vs price value.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2010plz tell can its OS 1.5 be upgraded to 2.1 and how. does this upgrading affect performance or not.yes offcourse. i have done it bu my self. you can see the files needed and the tutorial on www.samsung-firmwares.com
obviously it does improve the performance, specialy keyboard lag is no longer an issue. and also so many features added.
is there anybody experiencing earpiece sound problem? i found it sounds uncomfort above volume level 2. sounds as you heard plastic wraped speaker. "brrr... bbrrr..." according to the peak level of the guy speaking on the phone.
guys, please submit your experience about this.

i don't understand what people find so bad about the review. gsmarena said there are minor glitches which can be fixed with a software upgrade. and if u don't want to wait for that, there are third party solutions which don't even require rooting. its the pantheon launcher that is laggy. and that can be replaced. helixlauncher is a great option. the music quality is great. it runs on android which is so much better than anything out there. the camera UI might be not be great but the picture quality sure is.and if u really want good pictures, go buy a digital camera. it will still be cheaper than the hero or legend or anything else that runs android. its the best 12k phone out there. and what would you rather buy? a 5800 or a spica ? we all know for a fact that the symbian touch experience is crappy. at 12k this phone is a steal. you won't find anything better than this. and the amount of customization you can do, makes it even better. people shouldn't be comparing this with the 5800 at all

billy_jean, 08 Apr 2010why would you turn down a perfectly good samsung for a tired old Nokia 5800, frankly it makes ... morewell surely thing about it... the thing is... i know that this phone is great.. but for sure only great till the time its an android 1.5 version... for sure if m gonna buy this one.. m not gonna update the os ever till the time a snappier update version is available.. checked hundred of forums and contacted people who actually hold and use this phone... nearly all of them reported that as far as performance is concerned.. the phone performs better in android 1.5... and becomes slow n laggy in android 2.1...
Sagar, 08 Apr 2010what i wanted. was a lag free phone... was really excited for buying this phone... but now aft... morewhy would you turn down a perfectly good samsung for a tired old Nokia 5800, frankly it makes no sense, this phone is good, runs Android which we all know to be a good platform, and the 5800 runs some rubbish symbian software that looked tired and old the day it came out.
Hmmm..quite interesting review by gsmarena..but i don't agree with when they say its not a silver bullet..
I think its better than all the other phones in its price range. REALLY BETTER
You can install so many other keyboards - swype is best!
