To be honest i'm not a great fan of samsung phones until i bought this phone last week.this is truly a master piece from sammy.the only drawback is the lack of flash otherwise this's a perfect iphone4killer. Although i find some jerkyness while navigating through UI this is mostly with android 2.1 or touchwiz 3.0 but with froyo update in september it'll just be a history..,
check out the apple user report about galaxy s and apple its hot check out here
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2010go into your settings. in gps and location services, check the box that says connect to wirele... moreThanks for your reply .
I have already done that and still no good.Also I have noticed that when I launch maps etc that need the gps .The gps does not work at all and I have to go into setting and uncheck the gps and then recheck it for it to work.
To me that indicates it has a problem.
Hi. Does anyone know if i could get a control pad for this phone? That would be awesome and would make gameplay on the psx4droid really cool.
Am very upset, few days ago i downloaded snesoid from the android market. I was playing games like moral kombat and killer instincs, i have notice where the transparent directional pad is on the screen has dug in a little, its not affected the beautiful screen in any way its jus that grease gets stuck in that low spot and its reeeealy hard cleanin that bit. When the phone is locked you could see it =( . Has any one else had a similar issue? plz mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanxs.
does the phone come with pouch its hard to find pouch for this phone...
Surprised and a very good feeling about this phone.
I have a 3gs and love it but wanted to have a bigger screen for browsing the internet.
Oke the iphone 4 is great and yes I checked it but the screen on the galaxy.. ...wow!!
And also Android is a worthy alternative.
I forget the galaxy looks like my other phone the minute I start it up.
Its a great phone and very fast.
I do not seem to have any problems with this phone.
Gps works fast, no black screens,a lot of apps running and still the same speed, battery life more than o.k. and with froyo even flash to make the internet more fun.
This is without a doubt one of the best phones around.
Mike, 03 Aug 2010As a matter of fact i only have original launcher that came with the phone.
I did have Opera ... moreHey Mike,
I've read on a Dutch forum (www.tweakeers.net)there might be a problem also if you have installed a 'Task killer app'
If you did, delete it from the phone, but do a complete factory reset any way!
Regarding to your gps problem, perhaps this is only related to your us provider.
Please have a look at this site:
Perhaps it helps if you change the setting in your phone.
Otherwise just wait 'till the update to Froyo next month because Samsung knows about the gps problem in some cases and is working on it.
As you can read in the comments on the above link there will be an update for the gps as soon as it's available.
john d, 03 Aug 2010I have just gotten a galaxy s off optus in australi and the GPS is faulty.It looks like it is ... morego into your settings. in gps and location services, check the box that says connect to wireless and 3g networks when searching gps. This is how A gps works. the optus version turns this off. When your connected to 3g at the same time, the reciever pinpoints your general location via satelite, then trianglates your exact location via mobile phone towers. Your phone is not faulty, just your settings. hope that helps.
Does anyone here know how to make google navigation using GPS work? it says trying to connect... but never finishes.. Ppl we need to try something that will actually work.
dickson, 02 Aug 2010anyone who own galaxy S know how to close the apps?to kill apps download Advanced task pro from android market.. its good
I have just gotten a galaxy s off optus in australi and the GPS is faulty.It looks like it is an issue with this phone in general
Called Samsung support and was told that the phone was not a dedicated GPS device so not to worry about it.
Well Samsung what a disapointment as the rest of the phone is fine.
To all SGS Users, (esp MY),
Pls try this, hard-reset or off/on your SGS & try to connect to internet via mobile data, which is either 3G or HSDPA. You may get the error message "Please Check Your Network Access". No matter whatever ways you had tried, contact the Telco, manually select the network, hard-reset again, nothing help. You will still never get to connect to internet.
The only quick solution is that, simply connnect to any WIFI the SGS can detect, connect & disconnect it. Then now only able to so called connect to internet via mobile data.
However, the proposed & most recommended solution from the Telco, pls walk into the nearest Samsung Service Centre to upgrade the SGS firmware. What the............... I just bought this new SGS a week ago.................... Its just like I'm buying troublesome for myself.........................
I've checked my SGS, the existing firmware version is 2.1-update1. Which mean it may have update 2,3, 4, etc............................?
Except the above, SGS is a Good phone. But I will have to point out this defect if someone is asking my opinion if they want to buy this SGS.
Ah! I picked up this phone yesturday while i was reluctant for a month and a half if i have to buy this or not...hours of reviews, lots and lots of websites browsing....youtube....what did i not do to get more info about the phone...
To my surprise, it screws the iphone by a large extent( my old phone) and even the music via speakers or the headphones.....super satisfied!
People in confusion...close ur eyes and pickup this phone...people who find out missing things in this phone....forget it! Ur not worth it....
This looks like a good iphone 4 competitor but alas ! it has no led flash. How could they forget to add led flash on such a beautiful phone ? and that too when they were competing with iphone4 ? Any answers Samsung ?
Maybe I will wait for Galaxy S with led flash support.
Mike, 02 Aug 2010at first i liked this phone,more then x10 nice design,super amoled display,lots of free aps f... morefrom the way u hav written ur post m not sure that u own this phone i bought the galaxy s 2 weeks back n i just love it. my other phone is iphone 3gs and the galaxys battery life is twice that of the 3gs. n i use the samsung more than the iphone. its a beautiful phone wit a sexy display. n i love the 4 inch screen n the pone is thin n nice. i just wish it had a glass screen.

[deleted post]Phones are not supposed to made in metal. You should have it in your pocket not under your wheels and check it. Can you please tell me which phone is the best in the world? I suggest you to buy titanium phone, which will meet all your requirements.
