i am not able to access internet on my galaxy 5. i downloaded the gprs settings but internet still don't work....help needed please....
I am using this mobile from more then 2 months now and i haven't faced any issues so far mentioned by other users in this forum.
I found this handset best in the market under Rs 10000. This is a great android phone available at such a great price. I have used GPS, WIfi, GPRS and each one of these works perfectly fine.
I read some users complaining about not able to login to their google accounts, I managed to do that in the 1st attempt itself. no issues faced. Please note that you must have a google account or need to create one to login and use android market and you need to have internet active on your SIM.
I have downloaded many applications from the market and each one of them is working without any issues. I have now left with just 25 MB free memory on the mobile but the response and performance of the mobile is still top notch, no lags, no issues...
Regarding Battery life as well, under normal usage when my 3g, wifi and GPS are off, i am easily getting 3 days backup. with normal internet usage on wifi or 3g or gprs, its still giving me about 2 days. One need to manage their applications well to get best out of the battery. If you don't do that then your battery life will definitely suffer.
I hope, this will help lot of perspective buyers..go ahead and buy it if your budget in about 8000-10000 Rs., I had done fair bit of research before finalising this mobile and I am pretty satisfied with this so far.

In the review posted in gsmarena it states that there are limited number of apps in the android market supporting this phone.
1) Are there sufficient apps or is it very less due to the resolution problem? I want to have an Android phone mainly because of the apps. So please tell me
2) How is the screen clarity?
3) How is the GPS?

Samsung Galaxy 5 is the best handset I've ever had. Don't hesitate to root your phone as it is very easy to do (requires just one click) using Universal Androot (v1.6.1 tested). The pros are plenty while none the cons. I was hesitating to flash to the newer firmware on my stock i5503 because it was very stable and trouble free. Everything was working fine, wifi, gps, you name it. It was a mistake as I found out later, when installing one app, namely LauncherPro from the market, had brought my phone down, stuck at Android logo at startup and endless self restart at that screen. Reflashing with the latest european i5500 firmware, I5500XWJJ6, using unofficial flashing app (Odin) had fixed it. But the apps and data had all gone, contact, sms, setttings, etc. Had I already rooted my phone, I would already had backuped my phone using Titanium Backup (root only app), and saved me the trouble, as it can restore apps and data in one click flawlessly from the previously backuped data in the microSD card.
Another benefit rooting the phone is the ability to install Barnacle, a root only wifi tethering app that can make your galaxy 5 as a wifi hotspot (adhoc mode only, WEP 128). I can connect my five desktops and laptops to it simultaneously, sharing my unlimited and cheap 3g data plan (USD 0.55 per day, up to 512 Kbps HSDPA). I understand that froyo will have this feature, and it might come out next month, but if you need to know about tethering now, rooting the phone is the only way. Anyway, when froyo is released, restoring apps and data from titanium backup will save a lot of hassle.
Hope it helps you my fellow G5 users.

I downloaded voice recorder, call recorder and office pro software from Android market for free. But call recorder didn't work. Voice recorder and office pro (trial version) works fine.
Is there a full version of office documents editor for free ?
Does galaxy 5 support wmv format video..?
