Is it just me, or is the touch a bit unresponsive? what do you think I should do?

Well, now that the Bada OS is released and it's included in the same S series that this phone belongs to, is it to possible to install Bada OS on this phone to make it a smartphone?
Even if that requires hacking the software.
been using for an year plus.
i don't see any problem with this phone, just that this phone don't have wifi. I own a nokia n86, I could say both are equally perfect.
just don't understand why this phone got bad comments, are you a s8300 user or just flamming here..
this phone is very stylish on its design.
Since Samsung doesn't provide good supports on the softwares from websites, here is a forum for Samsung users, latest firmware you can get from here, thanks.
I have had this phone on contract coming up to a year now and in all honesty at the time was a great phone but obviously there were better phones on the market.
So anyways, this phone kind of sucks now, the scrolling on the main screen, is lagging a bit, and the keypad is small.
If anyone is thinking of getting this now (in 2010), don't get it, get something else instead and save the hassle of getting an outdated phone
I paid this phone for over $500.00 a year ago and NOW the phone is sucked!!!!
my cousin bought one at launch it's great the screen is so sharp and solid and UI is handy,great phone.
Combination of keypad+touch screen cover both side users at once but it's seems a little faster CPU could improve overall experience and aid phone to operate much satisfiable,there are moments that you must at least wait 5 or more seconds to phone responds but all in all it's worth for it's price.
wow, another keypad+touchscreen with 10 10 10 rating by samsung.
agree with steven,
advice for all new samsung touch screen user.
you should use them at least for a month before value it. samsung can easily beats other brands as few high tech gadget coming out.
Best touch screen phone I've ever used.
Could say it's beats HTC, LG, Nokia, in terms of pricing and categories.
Also it comes with AMOLED technologies and superfine display too.
Smooth touch screen n non-lag at all.
Only thing that it doesn't have wifi.
Hi. I bought this phone when I was in my home country. This phone is total crap and according to me, its waste of money to buy this phone. with all other problems, the biggest one was that whenever I tried to play video songs, phone stuck and restart again itself.
