The Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.1 has a number of connectivity problems (GPS, GPRS, WiFi. There is a comparative table at The UNIX and Linux Forums that describes these serious issues:
Of particular interest is the fact that the Galaxy S GPS (running Android 2.1) is just about worthless in a car compared to other smartphones. It is not clear that the problem will be fixed with only a firmware update!
Can we install Skype on Galaxy S and use it for calling through wifi network?

I would like to know if anyone tried to install other languages than english on the phone, and how do they work? (for example the swype feature)

Hey all, well, looks like this has slowed down now - my last tip for battery life (and this goes for ANY smartphone) - download "Juice Defender" - you can still use it in conjunction with task manager, etc...
It's free and I have to say it's giving me at the moment x1.51 more battery (so it tells me) which is backed up by quick battery - 61%+ at 15.35pm is a FIRST!! And that's with over an hour radio, and a LOT of messing on the phone!
Apparently it works really well on X10 too...
Please pay your attention on the fact that this rewiev does not cover all the aspects. For example calendar entry and timer are much fascinating on the HTC-s UI. Sync options are better on HTC too. Rest of it is more or less same. Also camera is kind of blurry if to compare to HTC.
my samsung galaxy S doesnt have "android Market" application. could some help me from where and how could i install this???
Can somebody please create an app that installs a customizable 8 or 10 band equalizer to the music players in Android where we can create and custom adjust our own equalizer?

I'm considering this phone but have one area of uncertainty. Does this phone synchronise with MS Outlook? I particularly need to synch Contacts and Calendar.
Any help would be appreciated as there doesn't seem to be any info on this - which is worrying.
I'm very new to the Android world and with the Samsung Galaxy S, I'm having a blast making little discoveries. Omg no more speed dial, I just found out that you can put a contact on the home screen with direct dial or the full contact! Woa... Samsung App store too had interesting applications like Vlingo Voice, I uninstalled drive safe for this one Road SMS, funny. All in all, my Galaxy S experience is proving to be beyond satisfactory, then again thats just me.
I am returning my Galaxy S 16Gb. It is very good in general but the GPS is terrible, terrible. I need a working GPS, not a useless one. Pity, what a pity... no alternatives since android does not support external bluetooth gps units.
Do something Samsung! Maybe a recall is needed!
