Partha, 16 Oct 2010Guys please inform me if your battery improves after the update. I want to buy this phone but ... moreyeah ive been pissing around with the phone for 2 hrs straight and didnt see any noticable battery drain which i would of on eclair so far so good
actually i take those prev comments back regarding how crap 2.2 froyo is. actually its quite cool and no its not slower. im happy i upgraded
Guys please inform me if your battery improves after the update. I want to buy this phone but only the battery issue is keeping me back. And I hope all the lags get fixed. Waiting for your earnest reply. Regards
its not in Australia yet !! soo devo !! i was hoping the pdf fault i had would get solved by froyo..i have 3 pdf readers but none of them work for web-based pdf files.the apps work fine for pdf files saved on my phone.but dont open pdf files on the web. what do you reckon is the problem?
and Beam Reader..none of them work for online pdf files
Wow given the negative comments, I guess I'll update to the official version later. I am already using Froyo on my SGS since September, but mine's the JP2 version, and it's working fine. And thanks sm.gurdeep! I didn't know about the pinch-zoom on the homescreen!
Kshitij, 16 Oct 2010Is this the Indian firmware.....I guess this the common firmware used all around. wht if India... moreNo, this is the same jpm. In India it may take a couple of more weeks to arrive, I guess. Until then juz enjoy this readily available froyo treat. Yes we will be able to update to the Indian f/w as well. But first we will have to downgrade to 2.1 which is already available on the net (jg4). Keyboard improvements with froyo are awesome! Writing this from my sgs, running froyo.... cheers!!!

Please don't deceive people! People need to know the truth, this update is not good. Google ... moreActually android froyo 2.2 on my samsung galaxy s works PERFECT
which version you installed on your device?
for the lag issues and market issues, you should put your phone in recovery mode and clear all cache and data. After doing that, there are no more lags, and your phone will be in a great speed.
sm.gurdeep, 16 Oct 2010successfully upgraded to 2.2 through kies. now rebooting...how is 2.2 afterreboot
angry customer, 16 Oct 2010 Please don't deceive people! People need to know the truth, this update is not good. Google ... moreFroYo runs a bit smoother than Eclair, I would say it is almost perfect now, and add smaller improvements. I think there is alot of misunderstanding and too much opinions from hackers that want to modify and complain about everything. The so called lag-fixes are made by hackers rooting and modifying the phone and can give a better benchmark result that does not make any real difference in operational use. Upgrade and do a factory reset with no ugly fixes that does not improve anything for real.
sm.gurdeep, 16 Oct 2010Could you please be a bit more specific on exactly what type of lag are you experiencing with ... more
In short, I'm running the same apps I had in 2.1, but now they take longer to operate! It sucks, my friend have the same apps on his desire and they work way faster trust me. I though there will be no problems after 2.2 but I was wrong. Even the damn gps is still slower compared to x10 and desire.

Google ... moreRyansZA lagfix on Android Market is free and ok on Froyo, and makes Galaxy S a lot faster than Desire, and 3D-graphics is very much faster on Galaxy S than on any other phone today.
angry customer, 16 Oct 2010 Please don't deceive people! People need to know the truth, this update is not good. Google ... moreCould you please be a bit more specific on exactly what type of lag are you experiencing with the latest 2.2 ? What number of applications do you have installed with 2.2 ? Your quadrant score please ? This will help a lot if you explain in detail how it seems even slower than 2.1. Thanks.
Delicious FroYo, 16 Oct 2010There is no lag in the Galaxy S and Froyo made it even better, better then HTC Desire. The lag... moreAgreed!
1Ghz hummingbird is not sitting there for fun sake only. It's got something really serious to do. And, if it still seems to lag, voodoo solution for 2.2 is not far away apparently. Really looking forward to rfs-to-ext4 voodoo fix for 2.2 too!
Finger crossed -x-

Please don't deceive people! People need to know the truth, this update is not good. Google claims that the 2.2 is faster than 2.1 by 2 - 4 times. Well in the galaxy s case it's slower, yes slower.
So did we really get the 2.2 or is it something else. Just go see how smooth and fast the desire funs with froyo and compare it to this laggy device. Lag lag lag, is this symbian? I though it's android. I'm done with sammy
Ryan, 16 Oct 2010i have the samsung galaxy s but have now decided enough is enough.
new update is a joke
... moreHTC Desire have a so small built in memory that it is impossible to install many aps and games..., and Desire is unable to keep a stable 3G-connection because the reciever "goes to sleep" for a minute or two far to often.
It is very easy to root Galaxy S and install the free lagfix from the market making Galaxy S the fastest phone of all today, a quadrant-score above 1800. The easiest way to update to the official Froyo is by using Odin on samfirmware.com.
Galaxy S is plastic, but the buildquality is exellent, and the screen have scratchresistant Gorilla glass.
