Just bought this phone last month, and I'm very impressed. Performance is fast, even more so when I disabled useless apps that ran in the background. Battery life is reasonable (ave. 2+ days on moderate use, 4+/- days mostly on standby), especially after updating the firmware from Kies, disabling auto-sync and unneeded wireless services, and installed Advanced Task Killer set to Agressive.
Installed PSX4DROID and my PS1 games ran without a hitch. Swype is a Godsend, made one-touch typing of messages and built-in Diary a breeze. Movies are so much clearer and crisper compared to Galaxy S LCD, perhaps because of higher ppi. Rooting was easy too, for removing preinstalled stock apps that were useless to me.
Size is pocket-friendly, compared to the Galaxy S LCD, and for almost the same price, this is a keeper.
dear owner had any of you compared your phone display with displays like amoled,sclcd,ips lcd etc,
i bought this phone recently, it was good, very nice , when it comes to processor is very fast especially when i'm on net, a lot of applications in the market, the camera is good. the screen even is not amoled but the screen is so good even you go outside under the sunlight you can see it clearly, i think this phone is super clear lcd. My complain is the battery gets easily low bat, during using this phone the battery gets hot/warm.

Bought a Galaxy W based on the specs. However my unit gets too warm and drains my battery. Just charged my battery lunchtime and by 7pm the battery level is down to 20% : no wifi no bluetooth no.calls or text just standby. Is having specs.similar to SII draining the Galaxy W's smaller battery?
Disappointed too that the adobe flash does not work despite being updated.
Well I like the compact size and weight and camera capabilities.
Now I have to recharge.....
