in my opinion 3 things keep this from beeing the perfect phone at this time:
-because it's the same size as the HD2 i wouldn't have minded a 4.3" screen :)
-a camera flash like the hd2/evo (tho i don't really care about the phone camera but it's nice to know it's there...also as a flashlight)
-a metal backplate would make it feel less plasticky and i wouldn't mind extra 10g for that
But i soooo want this phone still:D

googler, 26 Jun 2010well people??? does it support front facing camera to make video call?Yes it does!
Posted from my wifes galaxy s!
velsarav, 26 Jun 2010Does this support front facing camera to make video call?Depends on your carrier. For example, here in the US, AT&T's version does have a forward-facing camera, while T-Mobile's does not (likely because T-Mobile isn't big on video conferencing). So Samsung's making the Galaxy S both ways.

Very positive impression. A myriad of features, and a fantastic screen which you can actually use in daylight.
Some things bother me a bit. No built-in voice calling, a pain to remove contacts, interface can get a bit slow when you run many apps, but that's the downside with multitasking. Wouldn't have it any other way. Battery time is short if you use WIFI and GPS intensivly, just a bit more than a day, which should be enough for most people. A bit thin plastic back side, I'm worried it will break if I drop it (which I don't plan to)
I think the iPhone 4 is going to win at design and durability, since it's glass and steel, but everything else is better (apart from the app repository, I guess) with the I9000
6.5 millio in indonesia, dude i just bought one only cost 5.7millio, greedy. phone is fantastic, thin and fast. no led, i wish they put led. battery also worse, other then that, is a very dandy phone.
estimated price range for indonesia are 5-6 millio.
All the manufacturers building custom UI are actually disadvantaging themselves. Whatever they do with Anroid they should do it as applications and should always but always allow upgrade to plain Android version.
It is apparent that Google will release new Android version every 2-3 months and people will not tolerate handsets lagging behind, see Xperia if you need an example.
Also I find Google's policy of Android outrageous. You do not even know what is in the pipeline let alone have a say on it or contributing to it. It should be real open source and open to everybody during development so that App developers and manufacturers can prepare their products for the new version.
I cannot see all the manufacturer's being happy with Googles grip on Android hence you have Bada, MeeGo, SymbianX and maybe another chance for Windows comeback.
i am not able to find street view in google maps (not even for new york). Is it a region-specific feature?

Downloaded the Watchdog app, very useful to have and satisfied with it. It Keeps an eye on the data transfer but can't disable it. It uses the APNDroid app for that purpose. But APNDroid has some very bad reviews in the internet, apparently doing damage even to the OS! so can't risk. any othe options for disabling the data transfer over internet?

In addition, there is also app named Watchdog, which can be used to set a data limit. That is, if you use some data and reach the limit set in advance (e.g. 100 MB), it shuts automatically down any data transfer.
Both apps can be run simultaneously.
Hope this helps.
