To those who want to use their Galaxy up the peak, you'll need to upgrade your phone. Join darkyrom.com and you'll be amazed! So what? You're on 2.1 (Eclair) now? Too old, mate! I'm running 2.3.3, Darky ROM V10.0 RC6 now! (Unfamiliar eh???) Haha...go to the website and follow the gurus there. They're my Gods...!
AgonZeka, 07 May 2011hello people , I need to tell me with yes or No , and tell me some good or bad specifications ... moreWaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy better, man! SE phones are slow and outdated. SGS is way fast and super sexy. Holding the phone for 7 months and YES, best one ever. I wouln't waste money on SE or esp IPHONE. Really nice phone to get, I gurantee. There're lots of updates if you know what your phone can do. There are a lot to do with it.
Have had a very poor experience with this phone.
Go it over the iPhone4 because of the 2 week waiting list and this was the new release alternative.
Had the phone for over 6 months and ended up being very disappointed with in the first 2 weeks.
Being locked in a contract there was no chance of refunding or replacing the handset.
40% of the time the phone had constant freezing, slowness and crashing which made this near impossible.
The Phone has good features... when they worked, like trying to answer calls or send sms.
Took the phone for warranty repair and said it was normal to be slow and crash... they updated me to 2.2 which didn't do nothing but add flash and make the phone even more slow.
The phone works fine when set to factory default, but once you add an exchange mailbox, gmail and facebook... it is suddenly as usefull as a pile of sand in your pants. Looked around net and also found other people with different android phones with similar issues.
On the flip side, the camera was very good, the screen was nice to look at, very light (but felt cheap), decent build (drop a few times with no issues), some usefull apps, can use as usb drive and can play mp3's or videos with out the need of itunes or zune.
In the end I smashed into pieces, should have sold it on ebay but I felt better sending this $600 atrocity to hell. I will not miss this phone.

manpreet singh, 04 May 2011there are many problem in samsung i9000 galaxy s. like that not balance show, message sending ... moreI am a SGS owner myself..You need to turn off Mobile Tracking feature to make the service command (Balance check) feature work. Not sure about other problems may be try freeing up your phone memory, removing the unnecessary background apps and move the apps to SD card might make the phone faster.
If you have to mod the UI to HTC Sense, have a look here

When the device is brand new it won't last very long, so what you need to do is run it through a few charging cycles over the next two to three weeks and your battery life will improve.
Mine lasts about two days now, and I've had it only three months.
Also, have a look around the internet for Galaxy S battery calibration for extra help.
Max, 07 May 2011HI

I installed Darky's 9.5 Extreme edition ROM.
I got the S1 few days back. the h/s is awesome just a small problem about the battery life. With a few Facebook updates, around 10 mins of gaming, 10 mins of calls, 2-3 downloads from And Market the battery does not last for more than 12 hours . Just wanted to knwo if that was the normal battery life or is there something I need to do to change it. I have installed the Advanced Task Killer on advise from another user.
It will be a great help if I can be advised on the same
