I purchased my SGS this morning (16/11/2010). Back home, I downloaded Kies software, installed phone on PC (Windows 7), and ran the software. Kies found the phone instantly, and a balloon message popped up telling me that there was an update to Android 2.2 available. A few mouse clicks later (Save contacts etc. etc.) and the phone started updating. Sat back and waited, and within a short while I had FroYo on my device. Couldn't have been easier !
Updated my SGS to Froyo 2.2 .. rooted the phone using z4root, installed lagfix and ran benchmark.
450 percent faster than 2.1 Eclair.
Android will be king of the phones within a year.
OH, and for you Nokia and iphone bozos here. Do this, dumbos.
ON You Tube search for Samsung Galaxy S vs iphone4
Galaxy kicks iphone. big time. only thing close is HTC Desire.
My kies was able to detect my sgs,when i want to save my contact to pc,it says "the device is in use,close it and try again"
I already close all app but can't save my contact
Please help me,thanks..
Hi folks I am from Bangalore. I bought Samsung galaxy s on Saturday
. Its response and clarity is amazing... Even the camera is also good i agree with what Paul says below. I recommend you guys to buy This... Browsing is amazing like broadband speed fyi i am not biased towards Samsung but this is the truth...there one thing its little lagging that is because of multiple applications running in the background... Samsung recommends to disable background data process which helps tp increase the battery life... Go for it..its 21st century device...i am waiting for froyo android 2.2.
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2010hey i hav bought this phone last week the phone sucks the clarity s good but its getng heat ... moreAnother Nokia die hard fan trying to hood wink others. What I do not understand is why these people blindly support this crap.They should try I-Phone 4, Galaxy S,HTC HD, Desire and or even HTC Legend which are indeed miles ahead of N8. By the way I own an I-Phone 4 & Galaxy S. We have HTC HD and HTC Desire in our household and these were purchased after detailed study. Sorry mate N8 is not even in the picture.
using N-8 for one week. excellent camera with nice responsive screen. Never hanged till I installed Swype (from ovi store) .didnot restart till I tried to use speed dial. I was using Omnia HD till date ( I purchased because of symbians, but online support by samsung is totally disappointing). N8 is real value for money.
If anyone can help regarding restart issue while using speed dial please help.
What is the use of lakhs of applications in i0S, android or bada if basic applications like auto call recorderis not available till date ?
SAMSUNG has announce to stop symbians support from Dec2010 and still my 5 months warranty is left !
article on net talk about March 2010 software update
but on trying sansung PC suite, it says no update avilable. could not try HX V-8 to avoid breakin warranty.
28 K phone,no updates,not even supporting full symbian applicating.What is gaurantee that Samsung will give support for Wave(Bada)or galaxy (android) in which 2.2 upgade is still a issue ( in launched sets.)
I WILL NEVER BUY SAMSUNG AGAIN, WHAT IS USE OF 3.7"AMOLED SCREEN IF COMPANY DOES NOT SUPPORT IN WARRANTY PERIOD ?
nokia n8 vs samsung(wave,galaxy s)
amoled vs Super AMOLED (The thickness of the touch sensor is just 0.001mm (!) this allows the screen to provide better images and to have great visibility even in direct sunlight (Samsung says that they perform 20% better than regular touch AMOLED outdoors). Super-AMOLEDs also have better lifetime than regular AMOLED and are very responsive to touch - even better than the iPhone's display)
360 x 640 pixels vs 480 x 800 pixels
nothing vs DNSe (Digital Natural Sound Engine)
nothing vs video light(wave) power led flash !!!!!! (two times powerfull then ordinary led)
720p@25fps vs 720p@30fps
ARM 11 680 MHz processor(A 11 is one of oldest processors on market!!!!!) vs ARM Cortex A8 1GHz
256MB RAM vs 512 Ram MEMORY
512 MB ROM vs 2 GB Rom memory
some ordinary audio chip vs WOLFSON audio chip wm8994 ( best audio chip ever build in some phone !!!!!!!!!!!!!)-one of the most reputed experts in the acoustic domain.
30 million triangles/sec vs 3d graphic chip powervr sgx 540 with score of 90 million triangles/sec...he leaves ps1, ps2 and psp behind
nothing vs dlna(far superior technology)
nothing vs mdlne( technology from samsung television)
super slow phone vs super fast phone
super laging phone vs super responsive phone
When you touch anything on the screen it takes at least 2 seconds to react vs super internet broswing experience
hey i hav bought this phone last week the phone sucks
the clarity s good but its getng heat witn 5 min i got replacement and i change to nokia n8 i tell dis s an awsome phone if any buddy has an idea to get glaxy yo can go for n8
Today I bought the launcher pro application from market.
Would like to share my experience with you guys. Believe me people its 100 times better than samsung's own software touchwiz. I will recommend all SGS owners to get it. As after using the launcher pro my lagging issue has solved. I have not rooted the phone and still in warranty. All people who like htc sense will love it, as it is similar.
Now I have two options in my phone. whenever I get bored with one I use other.
Anusha, 16 Nov 2010can it be upgraded to 2.2v froyo...?hey it happend to me too all u have to do is to just resend the msg which faild and it will be sent. just a network problem nothing wrong with the phone .
I dont understand what the problem is on this site. Some people have Apple's some Nokia's, other on Samsung etc and instead of passing on valuable opinions and help people leave messages degrading phones just because it has a different label on them. This is an excellent phone, few flaws, as do all phones, but is it really worth starting world war 3 over? If the Nokia N8 is so good, then vote for it, same with the IPhone, but voting down another phone just because you want another to be number 1 is beyond silly.
I had tried n8 and galaxy s. The only advantage of n8 is the camera. Everything goes to this phone. No wonder why it always rank high in most reviews.
have samsung ever update its phone in india than why r u guys expecting that thay will update this one
