complete nonsense!!!! BUUU SAMsung! Nexus S has 1GB of memory for apps, and SGS has 2!!!! I'm selling my SGS and going for NS! BU Samsung! We're not STUPID!
I installed yesterday the community made ICS port for the Galaxy S and runs even better then Samsung´s original 2.3.5.
My next phone will be Galaxy Nexus S. I would like to say Samsung be damned, if the nexus weren't produced by Samsung.
Ali Moazzam, 23 Dec 2011Why doesn't Samsung realize that we're already tired out of the damn TouchWiz! We need stock ICS!Get the Nexus S/Galaxy Nexus then.
samsung only wants to increase their sales.everyday they are launching new devices and forgetting old devices.so sick!samsung sucks!
They just want you to ditch your SGS for something newer. I'll just put CM9 on mine, once it's ready.
It would be nice if they just port plain ICS with optimized drivers and leave the rest on XDA developers
The good thing I am seeing after a very very long time here is the respect and good name Sony Ericsson is getting regarding this "issue". :)
Better luck next time Samsung, maybe they will think to reduce their number of devices now. They have made a good name all over during short time but let see if they will push their "support" to better. I hardly hear good words about their supports.
Its nothing new when it comes to upgrading from samsung they are literally ripping consumers off, take all the other phones and the proposed updates it never materialised omnia , wave etc consumers should stop buying these products
Santanu Dey, 23 Dec 2011Its quite funny.. because if Nokia can push the Belle update and Carla next year on the N8 whi... moreThey just want you to get a new phone, i am just inches away from getting a White Galaxy W this weekend, but this news put an full stop to that, so it is going to be SE Neo V or Nokia 701 for me, decide later when i try out both, but definately no Sammy for me.
os, 23 Dec 2011THEY are Liars, old hardware??! wtf.. Google nexus s is the same hardware, and they say good c... moreThey want users to buy new Samsung Phones so that next year they can say that their sales are higher than anyone else...... cheap way of doing business....but that is Samsung Mobile...
Samsung is saying about fragmentation here.
Because of too many versions of galaxy S in different regions.
Nexus runs STOCK ANDROID so it is getting update.
Even old 3GS supports iOS 5 and runs games like infinity blade 2 with 256 MB RAM.
Samsung is too lazy to develop Galaxy S its pathetic really.
They made too many customizations for Sgs and now unable to update blaming that it's fragmented. Nexus S got updated.
Sarcasm : android is not fragmented its the king it supports updates of phones for 5 years.
Most phones struggle even with gingerbread
Its quite funny.. because if Nokia can push the Belle update and Carla next year on the N8 which has 256MB RAM and 680Mhz ARM11 processor and it runs perfectly better(mine installed), it is quite a Shame if Samsung cant do that with Galaxy S, which has Cortex A8/512 RAM....
Either Samsung is useless or Android is crap(which I dont think so)....
SE is upgrading the ICS in all of its models which has similar specs......
So Sammy sucks ....as usual..always..
Jabb, 23 Dec 2011Then Samsung will be loosing Millions of their customer. Shame on you 70 year-top electronic-m... moresamsung will not loose anyone, only a few geeks like you. 99% of customers do not care what software version run on the device. i sell mobiles since 1998 and NO ONE NEVER asked me about software version, and i sold thousands of mobiles. so get a life, get a girl to ride and chill out
THEY are Liars, old hardware??! wtf.. Google nexus s is the same hardware, and they say good care about customers-BOOH...
although there are custom roms..
but they still need stock official roms
to develop certain things....
oh samsung you disappoint me
Just when those basher talk about Nokia N8 getting their Belle update late, I mean i can understand low end phone like Galaxy Y or Mini not getting ICS update, but SGS which is their flagship 18 months ago ? come on !
My guess is that Samsung want to make you bought a new phone from them every year.
I have put SGS+ in my shopping list next week, now it is definately out of my list.
