I think samsung had finally listened me :-P well, good for we both.
My gut reaction - Im happy atleast they pulled out. Now we can hope, certainly for something more better.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2010I have SGS with 2.1, love it. those who blame it are either: never had SGS in their hands or a... morewhatever you say matey.. no one cares about your lame 720P DivX video and stream it to HDTV via DLNA crap. Samsung still stuffed just like motorola did and people are claerly not happy! Stop trying to defend the Galaxy Shit. No one cares if only Your galaxy s supposedly "flies, it is blazing fast", most others don't. Many reviews do mention that in some areas of the phone, galaxy s does lag even with 1ghz.
Samsung do 5 million customers a favour
1) ditch RFS
2) ditch kies
3) Give us an option to install vanilla android on our handsets. (without voiding warranty)
4) In future don't raise expectations that you can't meet.
This is quite simple no rocket science required here.
Excellent hardware and crappy software don't go hand in hand.
And finally don't pose as SGS users and post positively on these forums.
I am disappointed with Samsung. I was truly excited to pick up a vibrant. I can live with eclair, please give me flash support. LOL, just get rid of KIES!!!!!!!!!
I have SGS with 2.1, love it. those who blame it are either: never had SGS in their hands or are apple fanboys who know deep inside that SGS nails iphone4 for many reasons....
SE fanboys lough because of delays in releasing 2.2 update? go have fun with your X10 with bluish display and Android 1.6....
SGS lags? mine flies, it is blazing fast. GPS problems? mine locks within 1 min when I am driving at 40km/h.Never wanted 2.2, flash support? well iphone never had it in first place and never will have it so be silent! complaining about cheap and plastic body? go **** yourself, having 4" display and weighting just 119g is technological marvel....
SGS+Eclair is THE best smartphone currently available in the market, period. how many phones can play 720P DivX video and stream it to HDTV via DLNA?
velu, 21 Oct 2010This is why i love Nokia always ;). Still nokia is supporting my bit old E72 and now i am a... moreSure get you update to symbain3, it is just the same slow old symbian as always. I own a nokia n82, never symbain again...
I just found out that the phone needs to be REBOOT THREE (3) times after all the running apps are force closed or killed in order to get the 2.1 update or Froyo up running free of lags and hang.
It worked for me (rooted Vibrant).
atleast they are making sure its right before it comes out. And everyone says that they dont do things like that.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2010Time for me to leave Android and it's buggy fragmented os and move on to Windows Phone 7 which... moreWell have phone thinking there wont be any bugs on wp7and have phone with having so many limitations its like being a four year old with strict parents.
Time to go back to my old faithful nokia 6700 classic. My galaxy s now sits collecting dust and wont be missed.
I don't know if I'm lucky or what?
I've updated 5 days ago to Froyo 2.2 through Kies (yes through Kies and kies works perfectly for me).
it works perfectly, not a single lag or bug whatsoever!
Restarted it manually twice after the update, didn't lost any application that I had on 2.1, added launcher pro and the phone REALLY ROCKS!!
I don't understand why you are crying here and blame samsung..others suggest other phones, X10, E72..Hahahaha, just stupid!
For the newbies, you can get froyo through ODIN, there's many tutorials..just google it!
namez bond, 21 Oct 2010LMAO! XD what a shame! funny how all the Samsung people were in SE forum laughing at the late... moreUm sorry to be a buzkill mate, but even with this delay, we have eclair and you guys are still waiting for it! Lol
Re Kies programming group - or at least makes them update all devices that come in to be repaired after having to install kies new each time on a system that rejected the first install LOL
Avoid all these issues and get a Nokia Symbian device! :D
(I actually have no desire usually to play these childish games but the repeated presence of Alui trolling in the N8 threads on here and singing the praises of Android left me with little choice)
Geconvin, 21 Oct 2010They should fire the whole team behind it. And the decision makers, too. Unfortunately, still ... moreI've sent yesterday an e-mail to the people from Samsung.com(not samsungmobile.com), tellig them that Samsung risks putting 5 million SGS user in a Samsung brand hate if they do not fix the problems with Kies and SGS, and that will affect their sales of PC, TV's etc. I told them to check the forums like the ones on GSMArena. They told me that they forwarded the e-mail to the higher management, and BANG, today Froyo was withdrawn.
