I've owned this phone for two weeks now, aside from Flash crashing on YouTube videos, I'm very satisfied with the phone. Photo and video quality are impressive and it's no slouch in terms of performance. I've went through the comments and Flash crashing on YT videos is not uncommon.

It still has the same processor as the GT-I9100 but the G model has a different GPU which is less powerful than the ARM Mali in the 9100 but still offers decent 3D performance. I really hope the Flash bug will be rectified in the ICS update.

I had keep both I9100G and I9003 SL, even the I9003 SL is lower spec(Camera/Video) than I9100G, but I9003 SL is much more stable. I have to remove the battery every day to restart my I9100G, the phone keep hanging.

The phone does hang on any application, but since the upgrade to 2.3.6, this happen less by aaaalot. Chipset and Gpu wise, only the tech geeks would give a shit. Therefore,if you are not interested with rooting, than I9100G is an alright phone.

I feel there is something terminally wrong with your divice, and you better get it checked from Samsung. At any given point, its the display of the phone which shall use max power, and that too can't be above 40- 45 %. Your OS should be useing less than 20% power at any given time!
