[deleted post]i agree that N900 has some weak points, but SGS ?? I wouldnt call it weak points, but flaws. Its really not a good fone except the display in some ways. Someone said it got good processor, and yes the processor and GPU is good ON THE PAPER, but in real life performance it is slow and stuttering, the software has too many flaws that ensures low performance, which is exactly what samsung has always done, and they dont have the will (or skill?) to fix it. You need to be a geek to have SGS, it needs rooting and hacks and 3rd party patches to be a little useful. If you follow Samsungs "support" then you have to reset to factory settings over and over again to get the same problems over and over again. If you dont find the flaws of SGS then its because you havent ever used a quality android unit like HTC and Motorola.
The GPS on SGS dont have a problem, its defective. Having used a HTC and SGS side by side in the car, both with Froyo and same google maps, i am sure of this, the SGS wanted me to take a left turn on a 6 lane expressway, did anyone ever make a left turn on a road like that? Because the SGS had no idea wer we really was. And how good is the LCD of SGS? On medium brightness settings a HTC with SLCD has better color repoduction, how come? Great contrast and brightness, but thats all, the rest of SGS is a collection of flaws, constructed when drunk and manufactured when hangover.

I don understand why you get so pissed when one says bad things about the phone you like. If you wanna see only good comment, how are you going to know it's weakness or strenght? And if a smartphone isn't abt web browsing, speed and capacity, then what is the point of calling smartphone? Or you buy it just to hack radio and change tv chanel? AND YES SGS CAN DO THAT. Go check again! Dont be a kid; accept the bad points and make it better. I regret spending my time explaining this to you. Grow up!
Xcuse.. Do u knew to connect sixaxis PS3 controler to n900?
Please i already dont know how the way..

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2011when is android comin out cant waithuh? nitdroid is already downloadable through dual boot. if u that crazy about android maybe u should by an android. maemo 5 isthe best!

Its not that I take side of SGS, but it seriously is the best one out there, and you know that. Plus, I don't buy a smartphone to watch video or for entertainment. SGS web browser is really fast and the speed of the phone, plus the screen size and super amoled and gorrila glass. SGS is thin and light. Nokia lacks those stuff which are most needed by users. And one more, I don't wanna slide my phone up and down every now and then. Think about it, bro.
P.S: just opinions for prospective buyers
One of the excellent phones on the land now. Try it you will not regret. Nokia N900 is the best

chubbyron, 18 Jan 2011im installing gameloft games on my nokia n900 using terminal x. it appears not to be sucessful... moreHi Chubbyron,
probably U don't have root access that causes this problem. Install root.sh first from the repositories & then type "sudo gainroot" & then try "dpkg" commands.
Also, make sure that the packages u r installing with "dpkg" commands are completely downloaded, u can use "wget" command for that..
To install the wget command, connect to WLAN & type "app-get install wget".
it should work then..
Have a gr8 day.. :)
chubbyron, 18 Jan 2011im installing gameloft games on my nokia n900 using terminal x. it appears not to be sucessful... moredo u have root access ?
If yes then first gainroot.then type in exactly what im writing
Apt-get install preenv
then if the extras package is in the phone the preenv installation will start.after it finishes do the procedure u tried before and it will work
Hope it helps :)
