I've found the battery to be very good. In fact, I get three days on a single charge. Freefaller gets five days on a single charge.
If you're not getting anything like that I'd suggest you investigate the problem further.
All the best

I think you should go either with HTC sensation with beats audio or Nokia lumina 800. Even blackberrys which are coming these days reproduce good audio quality. I am using galaxy s from last one year. This cell phone is too good.. But battery life is really very poor..
Hi guys, I am in search for the best music smartphone and after a brief research I have come up with a list of phones. Apparently, Galaxy S seems to be the one having better audio quality of the lot and I am here to ask opinions about the music quality of the phone (Iphone 4s is very costly for my budget of 400$ and personally I am not a fan of apple). I will be using my phone for listening to music mostly than anything else and I do not much care about the camera. Battery life and speed are indeed a concern to me. The list is below. Please tell me your opinions. If there are any audiophiles out here, I will be very grateful to get their opinion. Thank you. :)
Wildfire, desire, desire hd, Mozart, desire s, sensational xl, t8788 7 surround.
Galaxy s, s ii, Omnia, focus, galaxy ace,
SE Mix Walkman, w 960, w 860i, xperia x10, xperia ray, wt19a live with Walkman.
Lumia 800, n8, n81 8 gb, n 95, n73.
venomous, 20 Mar 2012to root or not to root galaxy s tht is the question ??
The benefits of rooting are well known as it enables you to do things with the SGS that unrooted phones cannot. Such as creating a full image backup, blocking in-app adverts, wiping the battery stats file for calibrating the battery and so on.
The downside to rooting is that it makes the phone more susceptible to malware attacks and they can do more damage at the heart of the OS.

The Galaxy S doesn't have it's own FM Transmitter but you can buy a FM Transmitter kit that will work.
Can anyone help me, is there any fm transmitter that is compatible with Galaxy S I9000 because I want to play my music from the phone using the car radio, thanx.

On your Home screen, press left soft button and select Settings. Then press Applications/Manage applications and select All at the top of the screen. Scroll down to TwLaucher and select it. Press Clear data and go back to your Home screen. If the icons aren't there turn your phone off and restart.

Are you sure on that Ray, because if you go to Settings/Locale and text/Select locale/ it lists English (South Africa) in the options, so I assume SA is supported.

Ok Gas, good to know. You should be fine updating then. However, you'll most likely have to use the correct CSC and Modem for your region rather than the ones in the download as they're for the European region.

The reason I ask is that there are still some people in the states who are still running Eclair because the networks are useless at releasing updates. I just think it's odd that someone is still on Eclair when they should be on Froyo or Gingerbread by now.
All the best.

Why does he have to be from over the pond?
I had Eclair on my Galaxy when I purchased it nearly two years ago. In fact, if you look at GSMArena's review of the phone on the 13th April 2010 it clearly mentions 'the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S packs all the updates brought by Android 2.1, like several new widgets and Live wallpapers as seen on the Nexus One'.
We've flashed our Galaxy's so many times we are forgetting what it was like back then.

Sorry mate, I was only messing with you. It's just that I can't stand the sight of the Wildfire. Two friends of mine have the Wildfire and I think it's a horrible little phone.
Anyway, you mention you will be updating from Eclair. Does that mean you are in the USA? If so you may not be able to upgrade to 2.3.6 using the method linked to. The following quote is taken from the tutorial for flashing JVU;
"This guide is applicable only for Samsung’s Galaxy S international version (GT-i9000). Check your phone’s version in Settings – About Phone. It has to be “GT-i9000” for this firmware to be compatible with your phone. If it’s not GT-i9000, simply don’t try this ROM on your android handset — don’t even think about it if you care about your android device."

There is no problem upgrading from Eclair or any other Firmware to v2.3.6 VP.
I just looked at the link again and noticed something that is missing.
After you have flashed your phone and it is running, turn it off again and restart it holding down Vol Up + Home + Power buttons at the same time. Your phone will now go into Recovery mode. Use the volume keys to select 'wipe cache partition' and press the home button. Then do the same with 'wipe data/factory reset', and finally select 'reboot system now'.
Doing that will optimize your battery and remove data flux from your phone.
Remember though that you will have a clean phone, all your contacts, apps etc will be gone. It is like a new phone, but you will be amazed at the speed it runs at (especially coming from Elair).
