Just Asking, 23 Dec 2011lol. this phone must have ics , nowadays all phones have ics ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/in... moreit would be a late update for this phone due to:
1. not a high-end phone or samsung's flagship phone (like s2 or nexus S)
2. this is an international release phone and it came out late
but, sure it can accommodate the ICS when it comes to software and hardware build...
MAJ, 23 Dec 2011published specifications of galaxy w says it has 512MB RAM.
installed application shows it ha... moregalaxy w is running TW 4.0 and it needs a stable ram, so the difference between 512 and 351 is the ram allocated only to touch wiz... if you are really bothered to use the whole 512, root your phone and remove touchwiz... it will solve your problem...
i root mine and am using the 512 full ram, but when removing the TW, ensure that you back it up using the Titanium backup after rooting and before removing... so when the official update for the ICS is available you can easily update your phone without any problem...
actually, this is the main reason why galaxy s and sl are not going to get ICS update due to its old RAM build without partition for the TW4.0... ICS only runs on TW 4.0 for samsung phones...
mentalerror, 23 Dec 2011i've bought this phone a week ago and the only problem so far is that it overheats while using... moreits not normal... you should change your battery... mine never heats up when browsing over wifi or 3g, playing games, playing videos and musics...
PLS HELP...my galaxy w does not connect to wi-fi..it finds my home wi-fi but it alway says disconnected..why is that?how can i fix it?
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2011Yes, but disabled when recording at 720p.You mean when you record video at max resolution 720 p there is no autofocus, but with a lower resolution like VGA there is autofocus ?
That is strange....

[deleted post]Hi! Thanks for this, man! One question though, do you need to root your phone before you can use these games?
Bontang User, 22 Dec 2011But on the market said that it's incompatible with Galaxy W?Download mediafyre from market and start from there. u can doqnload full.games anytime.
Bontang User, 22 Dec 2011Thanks. I will try it. Are you Galaxy W user also? What games have you played?Yes I am, and i'm lovin' it. Unfortunately, I only have free apps on my phone, as of now, cuz my credit card is already at its limit.
I have reviewed on S Plus and W recently and i found out that the function of W is mostly the same with S Plus.
W is even more lighter than S Plus`S Plus have a bigger screen and a longer standby hour i think so`but, S Plus is more expensive`
Did anyone think the same here?
Luchador, 23 Dec 2011i think... the htc sensation XL much better than Galaxy W.. great 8.0MP camera, 1.5GHz prcssor.. Yes, but Sensation XL's price is up to two times Galaxy W's price. Or at least at my country. But I believe that Sensation XL is far more expensive.
So, it's not fair to compare two device with difference price range. Price don't lie.
published specifications of galaxy w says it has 512MB RAM.
installed application shows it has 351MB.
same application installed on galaxy i9003. it shows a RAM size close to what is published.
I NEED REPLY! Which is better, XPERIA neo V, or Samsung Galaxy W? Reply! :))))
