AnonD-25554, 06 Dec 2011ofcourse this phone will get ics update if a lesser capable phones like xperia play,xperia neo... morethat's right. if a firmware upgrade has no real significant benefit to the user in real-world use, then there's no sense in waiting out for the next new model if one's only after the upgrade. remember, the Galaxy W is only a few months old and the hardware specs are decent, so any immediate upgrades to the firmware will be available to the phone.
ofcourse this phone will get ics update if a lesser capable phones like xperia play,xperia neo can get ics update galaxy w is good enough for it.but its true ics update really benifit only dualcore phones
nicee, 06 Dec 2011i fell inlove with dis phone before the specs the features etc and i want to buy it immediatly... more...and when a new phone with ICS comes out, you hold again and wait for the next one with the newest Android upgrade once you get hold of some news. When will you stop thinking about buying a phone and actually buy one?
i fell inlove with dis phone before the specs the features etc and i want to buy it immediatly . But when i heard about android ics i start to doubt if this phone will get the updated . this phone has a gpu adreno 205 and a chipset with a qualcomm snapdragon these two was too old and slow for ics and its price here in the philippines is 17k thats almost a $400 are you kddin me ? thres a alot more better than this for its price it doesnt matter if it has a 1.4 ghz processor thats not enough to get the ics . If your planning to buy this phone thres 2things i wanna telyou . 1st wait for the samsung whethre this will get or willnt get the ics update 2nd wait for something better
but overall wat a smokin phone !
Kimbidi, 05 Dec 2011Does this phone come with free memory card?no , but it's big enough to save some of your photo and music without sdcard cause there is 1GB storage for app + 1,7 GB USB Storage memory to save your file + sdcard slot if you want to use it, i bought it yesterday the UI is fast and smooth moreover battery life is much longer than my ace.

AnonD-25554, 04 Dec 2011friends is galaxy w costlier or cheaper than galaxy sl?nice phone.
for those asking if this phone will get ics my opinion is this phone willnt get ics because the gpu and chipset is way old and slow for ics its almost same with htc nexus one where google itselt announced that willnt get ics (nexus one)
Mine galaxy w is good,for middle class who need phone that value for our money.processor is good as galaxy s plus,better in image focus..thank for samsung!!!
AnonD-25554, 04 Dec 2011friends is galaxy w costlier or cheaper than galaxy sl?It doesn't have a Super AMOLED so its definitely cheaper
why this phone is gb 2.3.5 my s2 still 2.3.3 no updates at samsung servicecenter here the philippines gosh..
[deleted post]No announcement if this'll get ICS upgrade yet, but you'll be missing out a lot if you chose Nexus S over GW like DNSe sound enhancement, expandable memory, 14mbps 3G, 720p HD video recording, DivX/XviD/radio, swype, etc. In short, GW is far more superior than Nexus S ;)
