poor imaging but still, not so clear but other than the following the product is manageable
vvk1987, 15 Nov 2010This phone is not upgradable to android 2.2
so stay awayNot quite true!
I personaly upgraded to Android 2.2.1 with a CyanogenMod version. All the important stuff work just fine, including WiFi and Bluetooth.
Only slight dissapointment is loss of native DivX capability and poor video capture. The DivX issue isn't such a problem since YXflash is a player that supports divx. Rename your AVI's to .DivX and check this player as default.
Battery life is no longer than two days using it only for som calls. No use of games, internet or else. Does anyone know if battery life can extended?
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2011How can I upgrade from 2.1 to 2.3 ???
You cant, legally. But you can use cyanogen or samdroid mod (version 2.3 is only in alpha state, though, i recommend 2.2 for now)

can anyone tell me how to root this phone to install cyanogenmod 6.1.1 on spica??
Recently installed CyanogenMod 6.1.1 8.3 on my Spica,
now it is smooth as butter wirh Android 2.2.1, 3D gallery, Live wallpapers, multitouch and more!!
I owned this phone last year, used it for only 2 months and sold it. Bad for gaming, upgrade to froyo with ROM for Samdroid is useless, broken compass, broken camera, and still lag for gaming. This phone lacks GPU, even cheapher phone like Samsung i5500, Xperia X8 owns GPU.
Phone is quite good since I installed Cyanogen 6. By the way, this phone can and does run Gingerbread (Cyanogen 7). Check out forum.samdroid.net. With custom ROM, this phone is a good buy. With standard Samsung firmware, forget it.
Spica is useless for gaming because it lacks GPU, even after upgrade it to 2.2 custom ROM Froyo won't improve its gaming section.
Too bad this device lacks GPU so it is useless for 3D game although it has a 800 MHz processor. Even Samsung I5500 and Sony Ericsson X8 which are cheaper has its own GPU.
it can be updated to froyo (2.2). But it's unoficial. The rom is cyanogenmod 6.1. And about Ginger (2.3) there another rom (cyanogenmod 7) but it's not fully functional, for example, camera doesn't work till now. We should wait and then we can enjoy 2.3
Hi I've got a FEW quirk on the phone.
1.when I'm charging the phone & using it the touchscreen goes mad and startd inputing words&letters in that u never touched.
2.it does not register the sd card on the phone even though the photo gallery has my family photo on it from the sd card.
3.can't remove app shortcuts from the wallpaper screen.
4.YOU CAN'T UPGRADE THE OS BY JUST GOING TO THE SAMSUNG SITE ON THE PHONE.
5.ITS DOES NOT accept PDF FILES.
Spica 2.2.1 ( Froyo - CyanogenMod 6.1.1 )
ROM - 416,3 Mb
RAM - 159 Mb
Spica can be upgrade to Froyo with 1Ghz OC and 3D drivers... So Spica now can be fast :)
Kalpesh, 24 Feb 2011Is this Device Operating System can be upgraded from 1.5 to 3.0 Gingerbread?No way in hell. 3.0 is tablet only.
and Gingerbread (2.3) requires a hardware GPU which this phone does not have.
