Santanu Dey, 04 Jan 2012the irony is that the "SUCKING" symbian still manages to push updates to its 2 year ... moreNokia troll?
2 years old Symbian phones will get you S60 rel.5 updates and not Symbian Anna / Belle updates !!!
It goes the same for 2 years old Samsung phones, we will get Gingerbread updates and not ICS updates. :(
"And anyway I'd rather have a SGS on eclair than an iPhone 4s."
You ever been on Android v2.1 Eclair? That was super laggy on SGS1 !!! Only latest ODEXED custom GB ROMs are silky smooth.
"... my tab is on GB for monthes now and I can tell u it's one piece of least crap even with less than half the memory spared for installed apps occupied ..."
Get yourself a latest ODEXED custom ROM from XDA and some custom kernel + some speedup scripts loving for your tab and stop complaining! :)
Stupid dumbasses at samsung ... Galaxy S is still the most powerfull single core smartphone out there .
It has 8gb of memory wich can be converted into rom at any time wtf... How is the xperia lineup with theyre meezely adreno 205 able to run ics and 540 wich cand be found in the razr cant.
Its maketing bullshit. They wanna make us buy theyre more xpensive phones. Sucks .. but for the time being i dont mind since most of the apps are still not compatible with ics 4.0.
MAybe they will reconsider dropping the Touchwiz in favour of a clean android.
i just cant get one thing,why evrybdy z complaining about samsung???and all GS users who r nt satisfied wid samsung will switch to wat??htc,moto,or sony????even HTC cudnt give GB for DESIRE which costs d same as GS,which atleast got 2.2 n aftr dat GB.what more we cud hav asked for??XPERIA x1 z also not getting ICS which still costs 20K which is more dan d cost of GS..n dont talk bout NEO V n XPERIA RAY dey all r newer models in fact late 2011 models.and what i can say bout moto,either u can get DROID RAZER or DEFY+.m nt sure if defy+ wll get ICS r not?just get one thing dat no phone is meant to last forevr,one day ll come wen it ll b outdated,even s2 ll not b getting updates aftr ICS.and if it doesnt happen den tell me who ll buy dere newer phones,its just marketing nothing else.either we sud buy high end phones like s2,sensetoin xe,droid razer,nexus,2x or we sud b happy wid what we got..i hav GALAXY R n im happy wid it..:)
Sony errison phones got only internal memory as 320 MB,500 MB..............then also they r getting update....
it got 2 GB rom ....then also no update.....
AND PLS some one tel me about SAMSUNG GALAXY S PLUS....
wil it get ICS....hav 1.4 Ghz
even the lg optimus black(1 ghz single core, 512 ram) is going to be updated to ics..
samsung is pissing me off..
nobody should buy a samsung droid with single core cpu n 512 ram coz no ics...!!
Can't be space. Samsung is lying. Sony's xperia neo has hardly any space yet is on Sony's ICS roadmap.
only fool people like me perchese samsung phone. say no to samsung. no more samsung.
It would've been nice for the SGS to go out with a bang on ICS especially as phones with lesser hardware are going to get it (xperia) and it's twin the nexus s has already got it and runs it silky smooth. But you've got to remember that the SGS is coming up on it's second birthday and it was originally released with eclair, so I think Samsung have done a decent job with support for it, they could have gone further with their old flagship but if it harms the user experience it could have left galaxy s users with a bitter taste in their mouths and put people off getting newer galaxy models in future, it is business after all.
I personally would like to see touchwiz removed and a vanilla ICS rom released for the old flagship, one last hurrah before the tech is obsolete. XDA here I come.
And anyway I'd rather have a SGS on eclair than an iPhone 4s.
sheraz, 04 Jan 2012Just a lame excuse when it is destined for phones like sony ericsson neo v and xperia arc s to... moreIt wont be upgraded due to all of the extra features that samsung add on such as TouchWiz and so on. Its not go to do with the RAM/Processor but to do with the add ons being adapted to work with ICS on all the different carriers/versions of the Galaxy S. More than likely down to Samsung not being bothered to do all the legwork but instead release a new phone similar to the Galaxy S just about to work on ICS. The phone also is near enough 2 years old. Not all technology can be kept being updated. Sooner or later everyone will need to buy a new phone.
Galaxy S users need to top crying. The desire is missing out and barely made the gingerbread cut. When you have an overlay on your phone it is basically having an OS then a mod ON TOP of it., it will always be a restriction in terms of space. This is why the nexus S is getting ICS and the Galaxy S is not.
If you really want ICS, then root your phone and get any one of the stable ICS roms going about. You will also lose touch wiz at the same time.
You could always get a newer phone as well.
That is bad! Galaxy S is a phone from 2010! It should definitely be updated.
This happens because Samsung and other manufacturers release dozens of different versions of the same phone for different carriers, countries, regions, etc...
Just release one phone, one international phone for all countries, regions and carriers, if carriers want their shit on it, let them put it on themselves.
That way they'll have to provide updates for one phone instead of dozens of phones, which they have to do now... and they of course don't want to.
Just a lame excuse when it is destined for phones like sony ericsson neo v and xperia arc s to have ICS. They have the same RAM of 512 Mb and comparatively lesser ROM of 320 mb as compared to galaxy s' 2Gb. Just a cheap trick by samsung to promote newer models.
I havent seen any fan of TouchWIZ ..so why blame and cry ...just go with your favourite Custom Roms :) + it gives you a lot more flxibility than TW!!!
SGS, 04 Jan 2012It was the best phone at the time. it's still running very well. It's almost two years old and... morei couldnt agree more with the plan to push the people on buying new handsets,but still my question remains the same why abandon such a great piece of work? i m not agreeing much with others still they do have a point at least not with ICS every single matter in this world has its limits and by the way the rooted SGS with ICS doesnt have touchwiz
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2012this is nothing new its just how business goes, manufacturers will always come up with new dev... moreThen we agree that this is all business to sell new products you push the consumer into it.
but then again what if not anyone is being able to buy new products,what if no one is being able to get up to date with his handset? you abandon that customer segment?
It was the best phone at the time. it's still running very well. It's almost two years old and has two years of technology improving at a fast pace over it. Samsung upgraded it well. So now it might loose one last official update. What more do you want?? All of you are acting ridiculous. every other phone company do the same thing. Especially around this time frame. IT'S BEEN TWO YEARS AND DONE WELL CRY US A RIVER! But do not accuse Samsung of not supporting it when they have done a fine job at support and because of it's age and limitations it's going out just like any other phone.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2012I guess Apple should use this in their next ad because samsung has been bullying Apple. Ful... moreSamsung bullying Apple??/ Lomao!!!! lolololololol. Do you even know anything? Are you like 12 with rich parents who bought you an Iphone?
