choy, 10 Dec 2010Dude....this phone is way better than n8.....i never got anything other than nokia before....t... moreN how if i may ask?
It's only if what u only care about is moving around in the UI of ur OS and doing small little things or you just want to watch videos.
N8 vs Galaxy:-
1. Camera - needless to say no comparison
2. video - In N8 you can actually zoom in and the video is still 720p without any distortions. The video taken has a wider range thanks to its wide angle lens.
3. Music quality - Samsung is very very well known for making phones that have really really bad loudspeakers.
4. Build quality - It's cheap plastic. Every where critics have pointed this thing in their reviews. N8 - anodized aluminium rock solid.
5. SGS has TV-out. N8 has hdmi.
6. N8 has OTG - really really nice feature. No other OEM apart from nokia has it.
7. N8 will regularly get updates - nokia has always been generous to give updates at regular intervals. Google will give updates. But samsung may/may not use them . As is the case with Gingerbread, where they're are somewhat backing out. Plus Android updates are not so frequent - maybe once in 6 months types and then OEM's take time to port. So by the time you get the update, your phone's half life (atleast mine) is over.
8. Current prices of the handsets are :-
N8 - approx 22.5 in the market
SGS - approx 27.5 in the market.
One big positive I see in SGS is its 4 inch super amoled screen. N8 has AMOLED which is not bad. But ya,even the real estate of the screen is much more in SGS which would be handy in browsing n all.
I'm planning to buy a phone close to new year. Wanted to buy an android phone, but not convinced. Pls convince me if someone really thinks SGS/Android has got the bang for the buck.

Anonymous, 08 Dec 2010Can anyone please advise which phone is the best - I9000GalaxyS or N8? Dude....this phone is way better than n8.....i never got anything other than nokia before....this is my frst time....believe me
I've had this phone for a few days now, the only thing I'm impressed with is the 4.0" Super AMOLED screen. The interface is somewhat laggy and choppy (using stock 2.1 Eclair) compared to the HTC Desire (2.2 Froyo)I used to have...
Does anyone have recommendations on how to fix the lag? I've already done a factory reset.
I have this phone, I am very excited about it ... especially since I did update to 2.2 Froyo.IS VERY NICE THIS SAMSUNG GALAXY S GT i9000 with FROYO 2.2
all those who are having laging problems after upgrading to froyo try doing an factory reset if reset dont work too you will have to root your SGS and run lag fix which i had to do on my SGS.
Feeling so irritated!!!
Somebody please tell me how to get back to Android 2.1....
Froyo is toooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow!!!!!!!!!!
there is so much of laaaaaaag!!!!
I'm generally not a guy who posts on forums, but I couldn't bare this, so I'm shouting out here!!
DO NOT GO FOR FROYO UPDATE FOR GALAXY S!!!
IT S****!!!! ITS TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SLOW!!!!
I bought Galaxy S i9000 last week and it was pretty fast and cool, I loved it...
yester-night I upgraded my handset's OS to Froyo and suddenly the swype input mode in my set stops working!!!
in addition to that, a few applications stop working too...
and the worst part, my phone is now slower than a symbian or some old android (i guess android 1.6) handset, even when I'm not multi-tasking!!!!
Can anybody suggest me a method to get back to Android 2.1?
Forget using KIES. use it only for updating to Froyo.
After that just connect via PC and USB. You will 2 extran drives in ''My computer''. move your files in and out that way, much faster.
I have this phone its good, Please advise me how to upgrade it to Android 2.2 Froyo. I have installed kies on my laptop. what are the steps we need to do after connecting device to Laptop(FYI Internet is available).
Hk, 07 Dec 2010I had the same problem with you Format your internal sd card...I formatted my sd card after taking backup. After that when i connected in kies mode it says connected in my mobile and i can browse the sd card from my computer and transfer files but it in kies it still shows the bar in the top right corner moving back and forth saying connecting. I want to connect to kies and update to Froyo but i am frustrated spending a lot of time in connecting.
