I totally agree with you! I first tried upgrading through the worse program kies but nothing happened. After that I took it to a samsung representative and they did the upgrade but my phone felt the same! I mean my phone was already fast with a little lag, but the lag seems to be worse now. What the heck is happening?!
Even my cousin who has an outdated phone like the X10 doesn't seem to have the lag that I have on my phone!! So I really was expecting much from froyo, but it seems it's not google's fault, its the damn samsung department that keeps releasing updates without fully testing them.
Test the damn thing, then release it. Stop rushing things to the market just to show the world that your first, we are not your lab rats, to test everything on us. shame on you

This upgrade is horrible! It doesn't fix the lag in the phone, and now the phone seems to have even more lag! Froyo should make the device faster not slower. I really don't know what's samsung problem, but all I know is that they didn't do a good job in this upgrade.
I would prefer to go back to 2.1! But I can't. Too bad our devices will never be as fast and snappy as the htc desire or nexus one, because they are the ones who truly got the froyo not the joke samsung provided us with :(
Why does Galaxy S needs lagfix? With a Hummingbird under it's hood? Great hardware, mediocre software?
Here are some Galaxy S tips that Galaxy S users need to know. You can swype left on a Contact name to text message them or swype right to call them. You can also change brightness by swiping the left or right on the notification bar. Get secret copy/paste menu by pressing on Swype button and drag to SYM. Hold power button for around 8 seconds to reboot the phone. Hold down the HOME button couple seconds for task manager or 6 previously ran apps; Search and Menu buttons too. There are many more. Just Google :) But Touchwiz 3.0 + LauncherPro + Beautiful Widgets or other widgets + some customized icons = slick on Super AmoLED.
"Alot of posts that say update is slower are from same person bashing Galaxy S while promoting the inferior Desire/ Desire HD devices. Just look at 4 digit characters on the bottom of the comments and they are the same."
Take my sgs over my iphone 4 anyday. Froyo update makes the gallery app absolutely fly! Had slight lag now it's gone... Wierd but cool. This phone keeps getting better!

Do your OS update then use OCLF from the market or z4mod from XDA if you feel brave.

Steve Jobs has and does hinder the App Store. By deciding what can and cannot be run on Apple devices.
Proper multitasking IS a requirement for persistent IM - BBM, Yahoo!, MSN, Gtalk, etc, etc.

In typical fanboi fashion you disregard the limitations of your device and software as things you would never wish to do.
Thats like SGS owners saying they never needed to take pictures in low light, hence the lack of a flash on the camera isnt a problem.
Grow up. Limitations are of the device, not an attack on you personally, you et al react like I told you that your child is stupid or you are impotent. NOT PERSONAL.
And telling people who made a conscious choice NOT to buy into Apple to do so is like asking Pepsi fans to drink Coke. NOT GONNA HAPPEN!
I am currently in India using 2.1 eclair.....Should I use lag fix now or after updating to froyo?which lag fix is the best?
[deleted post]Iphone call dropping
Never had a call dropped on mine in my life, and neither have any of my friends.
100% multitasking has never been an essential feature on any phone. You still have to close apps when your phone slows down.
And Steve Jobs didn't hinder the App Store did he? It's the biggest store out there and might I add the easiest and most user friendly.
(oh and don't bother talking about App Stores not being important because Android and Nokia have been working their asses off to copy Apple)
Akshay, 16 Oct 2010Thanks 4 tat info bud...u aware of any gud backup tools??Titanium backup is bar far the best backup tool. Free in the market. Manually copying apks will not preserve your data just the apps.

There is no reason not to upgrade and 100s of tiny bug fixes to encourage you. That is of course if flash, chrome to phone and MP4 video recording dont appeal.
I understand it clearly now... so since
not intend to fix It.....
should I upgrade or froyo even make the lag worse?
