SGS is a great phone..
I am using it from past 4 weeks...
It has prob with GPS, battery life and Background running applications.
Main concern is battery life, ....
PT, 30 Aug 2010Thanks for the suggestion but my 3G and wifi is already off. Any other bright ideas? Usually h... moreI played Age of Conquest for 2 hours yesterday, and the phone battery showed more than 50%. Are you using the Advance Task Killer?
This phone is fast as hell! I only wait for about 30 seconds while it reads the sd card at the phone starts. The major issue is the battery. I am on a vacation and I like walking. I use the google maps when i am not sure of my direction. And up to now, the phone never survived for 10 hours! I read reviews that said it gets better after a few charges, but after about 8 days, nothing got better. For sure you need a spare battery if you plan to use it a lot.
When you look at the battery usage, you see the killer is the screen. still, many apps use a white background and black txt. White is a battery killer, so it should be white on black, just like the phone menu. so, if you find out how to change application colors, set them to be white on black.
Dont compare NOKIA smartfone.
NOKIA doesnt hv a smartfone. they make fones for general public. they cant match technology in terms of speed, OS development
their cameras r home-made. nokia will take years to match latest technology. sorry nokia. u r just a fone not smartfone.
I am going to share my experience with samsung. I was SE user since beginning n had to switch to sasung coz thr wasnt any android fone in SE. samsung i knew is worst in customer service, but still i took a chance. I confirmed that they have worst customer service.
1. they promised to release new firmware for android fones, but launched new fone.
2. they give u specs like 800 MHz with really works like 400 Mhz processor. even low speed processor of SE x10 mini z faster than galaxy.
3. PC Suite doesnt work. thr r third party s/w available, but samsung hvnt developed for android.
4. they recruit cheap enggr to write s/w
5. touch screen of samsung is worst. though LG screen is worst worst worst.
6. androids desktop app pantheon is buggy n laggy
Dont go for cheap samsung. better go for motorola n htc.

Symbian Master, 30 Aug 2010Hi freind, u r absolutely correct!!! i Like ur this line, Galaxy s = a complete faile... moreNokia accepts that they can make better smartphone in market but they will do it next 2 years and for now they undergoing some research....... Even after 2 years they can't match Samsung config its impossible. If sum says Nokia beats Samsung in gprs but Samsung beat all the way other than gprs
Symbian Master, 30 Aug 2010Hi freind, u r absolutely correct!!! i Like ur this line, Galaxy s = a complete faile... morelol...this topic been cut out already,just read the previous comment and u will know actually who is copying...
[deleted post]boo...samsung galaxy s have a faster processor than any nokia model...and i think this is more important,coz even a higher class gprs wont make ur phone perform faster...3g are faster anyway.
[deleted post]What is the maximum speed for any network providers??mayb 10-20kbs........no1 will provide 200kbps so GPRS and EDGE class 10/12 or 33 it doesnt matter....
First understand what is needed and provided...........
i cant help it, the HTC desire just looks so much better. and. well.this look so tacky id assume it came filled with candy..
if rather own an IPHONE than this piece of .. crud.
Symbian Master, 30 Aug 2010Hi freind, u r absolutely correct!!!
i Like ur this line,
Galaxy s = a complete faile... moreJust like your use of english "its epic failed copy" of my language.
And someone who likens themselves after one of the most horrible clunky operating systems of all time possesses no threshold to judge one version of software over another. You would be better suited differentiating between an apple and a banana to your kindy teacher.
[deleted post]Hi freind, u r absolutely correct!!!
i Like ur this line,
Galaxy s = a complete failed copy of iPhone
its truth, its epic failed copy of iphone
I have bought Samsung I9000 Galaxy S few days ago!
Just converted from Nokia (a very experienced Nokia user from 2001 until more recently including N95, N96, N97) because the N8 delays so much...
I will focus on the negative things I have found in just 3 days of usage:
a)Samsung Kies - the sw for synchronization. To the best of knowledge/experience VERY DISAPPOINTING concerning sychronization with MS Outlook since:
- Photo of contacts in outlook is not supported
- Calendar (from MS outlook) is not supported
- Notes are not supported
- Tasks (to-do list) are not supported
I know it is android (google sw based) phone but these issues are long solved from Nokia PC suite. If the guys in Samsung are keen about having a market share in smartphones they should know that sync with outlook is a MUST for most smartphone users.
b) Language change: it is a bit difficult... given the fact that you have to choose from a big list of alternatives
c) No flash for the camera
d) 5mp is a rather mediocre resolution
e) ThinkFree office application is very weak (for word, excel, ppt files)
I hope in Samsung the will change their mind and focus on developing/evolving the kies suite and the synchronization with Microsoft outlook!
It is inadmissible for a high-end mobile not to have synchronization with MS Outlook or is there a strategic alliance with Google behind that?
realy a awesome cell
sleek n wide screen....n weightless
but lac of flash......
ultimately an amezing Xperience...
