lennie, 16 May 2012can someeone tell me why the price of this phone suddenly dropped? Is it upgradeable to ICECRE... moreThe Samsung Galaxy W i8150 was released in the Philippines in November 2011. It was a very interesting offering, but its Php16,000 price bumped head to head with LG's Optimus Black, which had a larger display, and priced below it was Sony Ericsson's Neo V. We noticed that the price of the Galaxy W has dropped to Php11,400 with an official Samsung warranty from one of the retailers who we use for price checks. This now places its price in parity with the similarly spec'ed Xperia Neo V.
Does Galaxy w support video calling through Skype ??? did u try it guys ?? plz need an answer quickly
from the post of Filipino user here. how did you update the value pack of your galaxy w? is it thru kies or OTA? tnx..

I do hope Samsung will inform the client, the features on the update they provide, or else we would heve no ideas what's been updated.
Received notification for update on Wednesday and directly install it. It seems this is what it's called the value pack. Noticeable point are:
- Face recognition to unlock, and
- Take photo during recording video
By the way, I'm from Indonesia.
beki, 14 May 2012this handset does not have corning gorilla glass unlyk SGA. battery drains fast than SGA too. ... moreI think it never drops, coz, the real price here in this site is aprox. 12k pesos, i think i depend where and how much the retailer get the fone, i asked yester day, its still 16k+, but in commercial store its only 12,290 pesos
hi...wanna ask question,this phone able to make a video call using network carrier or not?
whts is wrong with Samsung.....every HTC smartphone is getting an ICS Update,example HTC DESIRE C with 600MHz and Galaxy W with 1.4Ghz Processor and unique in every aspect is being left out....this is wrong...Samsung should provide the Galaxy W users with ICS Update..Hope Samsung will think about it....

AnonD-44214, 17 May 2012I've updated my galaxy w yesterday with the value pack. I'm from the Philippines.Noticed the LD1 update available in Kies too, i prefer to update using OTA, not sure why Kies update never works for me, maybe to much restriction set on the PC, anyway what's new in the update ? Face recognition unlock ? Still photo in video mode ?
