The Galaxy Pro also enables you to view and edit Excel, PowerPoint and Word documents with the handy ‘Think Free Office Pro’ tool and has a talk time of up to 11 hours. As with any all-singing, all-dancing new phone that hits the market, comparisons are quickly made with the iPhone 4, arguably the most talked-about handset available.
raj, 19 May 2011i want to buy this phone, can any user help me - is this a business phone? can i work my excel... morehi raj,
YES,this is a buisness phone and u do have an option of built in app called thinkfree office to edit your documents and if u want to upgrade to some higher level u can always download few buisness document related apps from android market.
i myself using thinkfree,auto CAD and cam scaner apps which are working flawlessly.
but let me recorrect few specifications given by GSmarena-
1)it doesnt supports flash 10.1
2)theres no divx/xvid support(probebly coz of the low res screen but u do have market so,apps like rock player,arc player will support most of the formats)
other than that,its a perfect buisness class device...and its got full qwerty keyboard which is the most essential thing for a buisness class user...and the USP of this qwerty keypad would be its comparitively bigger size than any regulr qwerty messaners around.its really bigger and wider than any regulr sized qwerties around so u dnt feel cramped up at all.keys does feels bit hard initially but u do get used to it soon.
its got great 3mp snapper as well which does great job while scanning any document using cam scaner app...trust me results are fantastic and mind u its an "autofocus" camera unlike its competetor Motorola charm which has "fixed" focus 3mp cam with not so good results.
hope now it'll be easy for u to decide...cheers :-)

- Approx. 5 calls on average 5 mins a day
- Wifi ON in the evenings and stays overnight.
- No GPS.
- Auto sync of 2 mail IDs also happens through wifi.
- Reading of 2-3 PDFs or PPTs a day.
Just one issue is No Video Calls feature at all. Is there any workaround for this?
99% Android phones leak secret account credentials... It's time for Samsung to update the OS version to 2.3.4 or infact 3

Is this true?
1.can we send group sms to unlimited people like in nokia symbian series phones?
2. in symbian series there is a general log which u can enter through menu where the log of calls, sms and data transfer are shown, even if u delete the call log from the log by assesing the green button the calls wont be deleted from the general log. u can only delete it all together only, not individual one. does the android platfrom have any problemlike that ? thanx in advance

Pvn, 17 May 2011I bought it 3 days back. Battery drains very fast. At least till now I recharged it 4 times. ... morehi pvn,
few tricks to save battery-
- switch on data network mode to 2G if u rnt using 3G.
-use ATKs from market.
-keep ur screen to the viewable brightness and not to the fullest.
-switch off wi-fi,bluetooth,GPS(if not using)
-use dark baground wallpaper(if its black then its great)and try to avoid live wallpapers if u can.
-set ur screen time out to the minimum.
-if u rnt using data network...then keep it off.
and by the way,my device lasts upto 3days on modrate use...so for heavy user it shd last for about day and half.hope it'll help a bit if not drastically !!! cheers :-)
I bought it 3 days back. Battery drains very fast. At least till now I recharged it 4 times. Battery just last for max 12 hours.
Any idea if there will be any improvement in the situation?
thiru, 16 May 2011plzz let me knw abt keypad. will it make a sound while typing?????????
Waiting for ur reply... moreDoesn't produce a soound, feels really soft just like typing in a laptop (using dell). I had to adjust though because the keys don't have space in between them. But you'll get used to it.
My only complaint is that the comma symbol is accessed via the alt key. I used comma and period a lot so I hoped that the comma symbol doesn't need the alt.
Just got this handset to replace my x10 mini pro. The only 2 things I miss from my mini pro are the LED flash for cam and the LED light indicators.
This is definitely a great buy for its price. Unfortunately, doesn't come with a headset or data cable in some countries (Philippines).
