This phone is perfect. Its balanced. Its 5 Megapixel Camera suits perfectly to the phone. This is my dream phone. I don't need anymore a phone with overmegapixel like N8 did. N8 users keep on bragging their phone's camera. Well, I don't care. Ill just buy a Nikon Camera if I am really onto photography.
How easy is it to upgrade my SGS to Froyo 2.2 ?
Can someone walk me through it step by step.
Andy, 20 Dec 2010Hi all,
I plan to buy this phone, But I heard about GPS problem. (http://www.engadget.com/2... moreGPS is flawed on euro units, and samsung admitted the flaw on some US units. juzt dont buy, no fone in the market today has more issies than SGS. Mysterious slowdowns and malfunctions become part of life, and all Samsung does is tell you to restore factory settings, again and again.
This is a gek fon, for the specially interested, nerds who love to tweak and root and watever. Just wait till you get issues, some nerds here will tell you to root it and all kinda unsupported fixes. Are you ready to go that far? The onli fixes samsung supports is no fixes, as usual, can you live with that?
For Indian owners...
FROYO upgrade is officially out. I got my Android 2.2
Go for it, it's really nice
[deleted post]Same here , its truly is like a tablet. the video in HD is awewsome. And its FAST.
Best mobile ever. (better than any iphone crap which controls YOU, instead of you controlling IT.)
I have had over 30 phones in 20 years. This one is tops . so far.
Chatty, 19 Dec 2010If we buy new Samsung GT-I9000 Galaxy S in INDIA. FROYO 2.2 will be factory preinstalled. ... moreno it won't be pre-installed. If you buy it from official samsung store, you can ask them to upgrade it on the spot, otherwise you can always use latest version of kies to update it yourself.

I have 3 different Navigation programs on my SGS. all work flawlessly.
No problem with GPS.
I plan to buy this phone, But I heard about GPS problem. (http://www.engadget.com/2010/0...what-to-do/) Does any one has any experience with GPS on Samsung Galaxy S. I plan to use this also as Navigator using Navigation software released by MapMyIndia. Appreciate your feed back/Experience on this phone. Alternatively I can choose HTC desire. But I am inclined towards GalaxyS due to super AMOLED and swype.
Im from Malaysia and yesterday i go a shop want ask for galaxy s but the sales people told me that they got call to samsung malaysia to order the galaxy s but they said discontinued already. I also try web search got ppl say at thier country also discontinue already. Dont know why. Is that because of nexus s? or new galaxy s is coming?
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2010Hi all, any one know why sgs is discontinued? From where did you get that info? galaxy is the highest-end Samsung's product and the most selling point for them, in some countries operators 'just started' to offer this phone for their customers, not to mention the support of Android 2.3 unofficially which will go officially in a few months.
I am interested in getting the Galaxy S but am hesitant to do so because of the battery life. How is the battery life of this phone?

I noticed the smiley key at the swype. Upgrade to Froyo 2.2 the smiley will be gone instead replaced by enter button. If you are updating via Kies which comes with the set, froyo updating won't work. Download latest version of Kies and you are on the way to Froyo 2.2. I just updated to froyo 2 days ago and it worked perfectly.
