shaaan, 08 Mar 2012Hi. i bought this fone last year in july and did upgrade from froyo to gingerbread 2.3.3 last... moreMy phone worked fine on the Froyo, had one or two issues on Gingerbread 2.3.3 nothing serious but went wild when upgraded to 2.3.5. Contacted Samsung, they sent it to service centres for 3 repairs(already took to local centre for 2 repairs)but they just kept replacing the software - didnt work. My phone was bought Nov 2010 but they have 2 year warranty so samsung now sending me a new one. You should contact them and see if they will replace yours(have to have 3 repairs first)It's so frustrating when you can't use your phone as it was intended, mine is constantly on charge! Good luck

Will keep it even after buying Galaxy S3...

My phone/battery was fine until my latest upgrade to 2.3.5, instantly started draining the battery, disconnecting and reconnecting wifi. I bought a new battery which altered nothing. Phone does not like the new upgrade!Had it repaired 5 times now, finally getting a replacement from Samsung. After one of the repairs they had put it back to Froyo and wifi was ok but if the phone does not accept new software then it is faulty.
iv ahd my samsung galaxy s for over a year now and all of a sudden last nite it started to play up, it keeps freezing and wont let me do anything with it, its as if the touch screen isnt working properly, has anyone else had this problem??? I have taken the battery out of it a few times and have left it out for hours, it sems like its going to work then after a minute or so it freezes again!!!
Aj, 06 Mar 2012What's the difference in these three OS: gingerbread, froyo and eclair? Need help please.. :)They are all updated versions of the same Android, bigger updates are given a new name, Froyo is an update to Eclair that gives support for Adobe Flash... and Gingerbread is an update to Froyo that gives better performance, and Ice Cream Sandwich is an update for both Gingerbread and Honeycomb for tablets making only one combined os for both phones and tablets.
sony ericsson neo or neo vis better from galaxy s. no flash in camera and an old andriod operating system stay here.
galaxy s, 04 Mar 2012I'm in confusion between sony ericsson neo v and this galaxy. Which i should buy????? This is ... moreSamsung Galaxy S1 is also my 1st Android phone.
been using china phones for quite a while so it feels good to finally have an Android phone.
in terms of screen size, Galaxy S1 is 4-inch.
while the ericsson is only just 3.7-inch.
the resolution are pretty close.
but i'd still go with Galaxy S1 because of the size of the screen.
for the camera's, both are like the same 5MP camera.
just google for any comparisons for both of those phones.
galaxy s, 04 Mar 2012I'm in confusion between sony ericsson neo v and this galaxy. Which i should buy????? This is ... moreRegarding the hardware SGS is far better than the Neo V except for tha fact that it doesn't have led flash but this is not of much importance for me. Between the two phones I chose SGS 2 months ago.
galaxy s, 04 Mar 2012I'm in confusion between sony ericsson neo v and this galaxy. Which i should buy????? This is ... moreThe galaxy S will be a better overall choice, because of so many purchases on this phone...i have this phone..and it is fantastic...especially the SuperAMOLED on it =D

Android 2.2 and above has an internal auto task manager which kills tasks as resources are needed. Just because an app is "running" doesn't necessarily mean it's really running processes and consuming battery; in fact almost all apps "running" in the background are just loaded in memory not using battery. So killing your apps every 30 minute will result in more battery consumption than just letting them sit on the memory because they will consume battery restarting. Why is this you might ask, well, when you open an app your phone has to do a lot of processes to start that app which consumes battery, but if that app is already loaded in the internal memory then your phone saves all those processes every time you open that app.
Some apps you can't kill, for instance Google Maps. Google own Android; Google own Google Maps, and the code is written so that the Maps are always running. You can't stop it, I KNOW!
Download a Task Killer from the Market to help. I personally use one named Advanced Task Killer for Froyo. It works splendidly even though I am running Gingerbread v2.3.6, and use it often. This app can kill all the apps you want to close with one click of a button.
If your battery is running down as fast as you say then I suspect that it is faulty. I would invest in a new one.
shaandar, 06 Mar 2012Thanx dude for yr help. itried yr suggestions too but nothing seems to improve. one thing want... moreI think the only way you could stop those apps is by rooting the phone aand then removing them. I am no expert on rooting but people here and on you tube could help. I gave up trying to stop the rebooting apps as like you say even task killers dont kill them. Its also the same on the Sony phone I have. if you only get a few hrs battery then a new battery seems the problem.

my galaxy s sometimes will lag and hang and sometimes screen turn blank, when its hang i have to take off the battery,is that normal?
galaxy s, 04 Mar 2012I'm in confusion between sony ericsson neo v and this galaxy. Which i should buy????? This is ... moreWell I got the galaxy but I hate the fact that it sometimes freezes...the neo has the better camera but the galaxy has the better and bigger display, more storage space...performance wise, the galaxy is better esp in gaming cos it has the better GPU...so its up to you...Better screen and bigger storage vs slightly better camera
