i just received my shiny SGS but it seems to have
a problem, i'm not sure if it's hardware related
or if a firmware upgrade could fix it?
Details : screen is nice and working... But seems
like there s a thin transparent vertical line, 1cm
from left side on the display, from top to bottom.
It's barely visible on a wallpaper but with some text, menus or animation, all along that line you can see the slight corruption caused.
For a better example, text over it exactly looks like some sort of "cleartype font", one of those you don't choose :)
I m looking for some hard reset in menus but what do you advise me to do ? i just received it today, i can go and send it back tomorrow and be sure to get another one, or i could try to see with a firmware flash it could go better/vanish ? Physically the screen has nothing visible from an impact or else. Any one has such a line on his/her screen?
Thanks in advance for your help.
this cell is hands down,the best cell in d market right now........everyone should have 1..u wont be disappointed..
prashant, 30 Jul 2010i think it's too costly and nokia x6 is giving better specs than this only the diff is of proc... moreThe Companionship of Nokia & Symbian is a dying story now, still Nokia is not aware of leaving the sinking Symbian ship. Not only the SGS is the latest showstopper in the mobile market, but boasts supreme raw power with its hardware specs and not to forget the best ever Android OS. It even plays a FULL HD VIDEO flawlessly. You think X6 is still better?? Think again.

Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010come on man, costs 600 bucks!!! It's an outrages price!if it was more like $450, like the wave... morewell i dont know about pricing in US... but in rest of the world...nexus one, desire, galaxy s, xperia x10 are almost the same price....and if we're talking about iphone price...outside US...super expensive...galaxy s is US$570 ... apple iphone4 is US$1060...outside US (such Asia,Oceania,Europe) what do you think of that??? beside... dont compare Wave with Galaxy S......Wave is Bada...Galaxy S is Android... of course Android is better....and 3.2inch compare with 4inch display...thats a huge diff....Super Amoled with 4 inch until today announcement only on Galaxy s... the next one is on Beam 3.7...but beam is fat and i dont need the projector

the... morecome on man, costs 600 bucks!!! It's an outrages price!if it was more like $450, like the wave, yeah, but probably samsung didn't want to steal the thunder from the wave, which makes one of the best indoor shots i've seen, (judging from the samples here)...because wave has their own bada os they prob decided to cripple the galaxy s?
if this baby doesn't get a flash it will stay just one gorgeous big screen, and i will not be getting it...flash IS the norm in expensive smartphones today...you'll figure it out next time at a party when the guys take out their waves, iphones and sonys and you are stuck with this!
Good battery life... which samsung always known with

Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010I'd rather have that than glass that can easily shatter (Iphone 4)You're right. Apple boast the strength of the glass used in iphone but according to the testing made by customers, 2 drops is enough to shatter that pristine display. Again, not an iphone hater
iac, 29 Jul 2010 Galaxy S is only plastic look and feel!!!I'd rather have that than glass that can easily shatter (Iphone 4)
Does the I9000 allow the blackberry connect software to be configured to it?
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010is samsung galaxy s and i9000 samsung galaxy s the same..Yes my european Samsung Galxy S reads I9000
Can anyone please help me find a store that sells the galaxy s here in the Philippines unlocked and contract free.. Your help will be greatly appreciated! :)
shiva, 29 Jul 2010thanks for the reply i have 2 ques to ask 1. i have read it can record video in full hd i ... moreyes it is true about th 1280x720 hd recording and play back. i have 1 and have no complaints about the phone
The display is fantastic and all multimedia capabilities are top of the line. It can even play mkv files (HD 720p) without a hitch ! Absolutely brilliant ! Camera is also good and I do not miss the flash. It would have been nice to have it, at least to use it as a torch :-)
I have the Galaxy S for 2 weeks now, purchased SIM-free, and I used it heavily mainly for business. I am very happy with it and it does fulfill all my expectations both for business and multimedia.
that is not full hd;
full hd is 1920/1080... or something like that.
and this one cannot record or play full hd.
prashant, 30 Jul 2010i think it's too costly and nokia x6 is giving better specs than this only the diff is of proc... moreWell,you may be right but i disagree with you...the processor is not the only different between nokia x6 and the SGS...SGS is packed with the better and latest display,which is the super amoled display and SGS display also larger than x6...not only the display,the ram capacity between 2 phone also are not the same...all in all, the SGS spec are undeniably better then x6,so it definitely more expensive then x6...
