Roshan J Thaliath, 12 Feb 2010Thanks a lot mate , I would also like to know is it really hard to update the firware , I know... moreDon't try to upgrade f/w to the un-official ROMs. Doing so, you r always at risk bricking ur phone forever! If u r a linux geek, u may give it a try, but be careful!
Better, wait for the "official upgrade" release. Just like "Kies" for Windows, samsung soon be lauching Kies for android as well (along with the f/w upgrade hopefully.)

friends i'm planning to buy either i7500 or i5700 this week...i'm little bit confused......
please suggest which is better ???
well ...i7500 has 8 gb internal mem,5mp cam,580mhz pro.
i5700 has 200 mb internal mem,3.15 mp cam,800mhz pro.
hey can anyone tell me how is typing in this phone please. how is the qwerty key board in portrait mode.
Blue-tooth will not work. It will recognize other phones and ask for code and will pair up but when trying to send a photo it will say failed, I have tried everything possible still failed, also when I take a photo minimum size there is no way of sending it by bluetooth only share to google face book etc or send by picture message, even when saved in gallery cannot send by bluetooth. T-Mobile does't want to know they say they can't fix Bluetooth they say some new phones can only connect to headset, told me to phone Samsung. Has anyone else had this problem? will have to return it to T-mobile if not solved. Roger
I bought this fone 2 days back... so far so good... previously i was usimg htc touch which had a poor display, even spica is 65k it doesn't look tht bad.. typing is little difficult in spica... so far i couldn't connect via GPRS, this may be b'coz of custom rom.. very gud battery life... plays vdo just like tht without any conversion. cheap and best android fone as of now... posting this from my spica :-)
all user data transfring problem. contacts,multimedia- music videos.
bluetooth other handset nothing any data transfer
not working proper.

Hi guys I'm totally new with this android platform , Can anyone tell me where can I get applications for these 1.5 and how to install them ? Please help.
Hey guys..i want 2 buy this fone..does camera has auto-focus as specifications on gsmarena suggests??
also when is the android version 2.0 going to be released for this phone??
I bought it couple of days back and the experience is great. Excellent UI and loads of applications available. I didn't had to do anything for gprs, it was automatically set while connected to service prover (Idea). My 5 star for this.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970- agreed with bisman! gprs configuration for 2G not that easy. My "WAP on Mobile" activation doesn't work on i5700. As android yet not that common in India, may be the operators still don't know the proper settings for android. "GPRS on mobile" works fine, though.
All in all its a good phone, you won't regret if u make a decision... go for it!
never_say_never, 09 Feb 2010I am looking to buy the Galaxy Spica this week.. I hear Spica will be getting a 2.1 Android up... morei5700 is available at such affordable price tag, so 128mb of ram is never a deal breaker. 128 will not affect your common activities unless you open multiple apps (heavy apps) at the same time. The average package size of an android app is 2MB (including resource expansion), but the thing is you won't use each n every app at the same time. You might like to remove the ones you don't use often. Task killing may come helpful in such a case.
About battery : battery backup is so n so. In my case the battery lasts max. 1 to 2 days at moderate-to-heavy use.
-- major issues those i've found:
- virtual keyboard in landscape mode too slow to use. so if u r a heavy texter, keep this thing in mind before buying. (rumored update to 2.0 might solve the issue, hopefully!)
it's a nice phone. bt difficult to use..
gprs doent work easily on 2g
never_say_never, 09 Feb 2010I am looking to buy the Galaxy Spica this week.. I hear Spica will be getting a 2.1 Android up... morePhone own two weeks, I get 142 megabytes of RAM when running ... all applications are free, about 30 to 60 megabytes Internal memory after installing navigation, games and other software is there for me, about 95 megabytes free. Battery lasts about 2 to 3 days with the last few days wi-fi and games. With the phone I am very satisfied.
I am looking to buy the Galaxy Spica this week.. I hear Spica will be getting a 2.1 Android upgrade soon.. is a 128 MB RAM a deal breaker?.. I dont understand the impact, does it leave too little memory for installing apps or does it just slow the phone down?.. also I hear as of now Android apps can only be installed on internal memory and Spica has only 200 MB internal memory.. is this a problem?.. roughly how many apps can be installed within this memory? the battery quoted is an impressive 1500 mAH.. but I hear from its predecessor 7500 reviews that it was pretty bad.. is the battery problem resolved in Spica?
overall given its attractive pricing, is it still worth the deal? plzzz answer these queries as I need to decide soon.. first hand users plzzz throw some light!
