Does this phone have wake on alarm? In other words, if I put an alarm and then turn off the phone, will it turn on by itself when the alarms rings?

TO EVERYONE:

I have read where the battery takes four hours to charge. Is this really true??? This is almost twice as long as my Nokia E71 which has the same 1500 mAh battery.

To EVERYONE:

As I told you all I'm planning on getting this Galaxy for Christmas.

I'm coming from Symbian and appreciate many things that Symbian is able to do.

One such thing I appreciate with Symbian is backing up the entire phone memory to memory card. Can you do that with Android? In addition to that you could back up all contacts individually as business cards (.vcf files).

Can Android do all this?

Also GSMArena said that apps cannot be installed to the memory card. How true is that and how can that be resolved?

Thank you all for reading.

After that, you will see your phone in the Kies application. Click on it, go to General tab and press update... Peace brother

Go to settings> Accounts and sync> switch off background data (just touch the green tick and make it disappear)
This area only consumes more battery energy. If you switch off nothing will happen. Only on downloading the apps from android market it will ask you to "switch on",
Then you can switch on.
Make sure, switch of wifi,bluetooth,maps like running utilities when not needed.
Then it will lost for 1.5 days. You can believe me!

> In reply to Original-Jamaican @ 2011-11-16 08:02 from kiQi - click to readI bought this samsung galaxy Apollo a year before.

Overall it is excellent. 90% mark we can give.
As you said, only for the sake of less sar value i preferred this phone among many.
No heat or radiation is there during the long phone calls. The issues i found with this phone are:
1. Low internal memory which do not hold many android apps.
2. Sudden black screen, some times when a phone call arrives you. (I remove battery and put again)
3. Wi-fi connectivity issue for no reason found.
4. Battery consumption is high..drains by evening 5 pm itself. You have to be vigilant to switch off many unwanted running software and utilities.Then it will serve for 12-15 hrs. Otherwise, you will get in trouble or should carry other one mobile.
5. Its bad shape. You have to be careful on handling it otherwise it will fall down at any time. Its not of actual square shaped one...tapered outside and feel not-grip at hand.

Pros:
1. You can use it like a computer. Very easy to send any contents via mail and social sites.
2. Android market is very very useful many are free apps. Easy and fast downloading.
3. Sound quality is good we can give 80% mark. 3mp camera is decent though not remarkable and it is serving the purpose.

I will add some thing again. This is enough for now,

Speaker sound is good for music loud enough to hear any song. Speaker on calls is good atmost at 2ft away.
Touch is very accurate, it can pin point a centimeter area touch.
You'll find this phone laggy, also you cannot experience some games which requires high graphics. Its a budget phone which will give you all the android experience.
But then, there's custom rom which speeds up the phone, I installed kyrillos rom and now my phone at 1200 MHz and lots of enhancements. Now phone is smoother and faster. But still don't think to play games smoothly on this phone because it doesn't has any additional GPU. My recommendation is to look for a phone which has a GPU unit, if you want to play games.
LG optimus one is generally better than this phone, but it was available at 100$ less at market price, so I bought it and didn't regret my decision ever. :D
