I'm a long time S60 user, wife and daughter own BlackBerry Onyx and Gemini. Satisfied with all of them. But as Android is going to the top of the smartphone chart, I need a good and affordable phone for introduction to it and chose Samsung Galaxy 5. After I used it for a day, I gave my beloved Nokia E52 to my son. It's that good! Now that I have it for a week, I'm totally an Android convert. Everything that I could do on Symbian and I can do on Android, and then some. True, the hardware of galaxy 5 is average, but the software side is outstanding. In symbian as you may know, you either need to hack your phone or get a cert to be able to install good apps. It's much simpler affair in Android. You can go to Android Market to get many good free apps (many are ad supported) and get productive right away. There are many other unofficial sites that offer free full version of apps if you look for it.
In closing, I would like to share with you the latest and full version of some Office apps that I got from the other sites: http://www.mediafire.com/?liuxuuy748gih28
is this phone include chinese keyboard function . i can't find it on setting..please guide me if any one know. thank you
fast internet; always up to date with the new feeds on FB, good connectivity; fast feedback; good touchscreen; Touchwiz 3.0 and swype!!!! best choice; best deal from HTC Tide, HTC Salsa, LG gt 540
i like very much the it's design; although it is built with plastic materials doesn't like as if it is cheap; it is shinny! Very handy and easy to use; the long life battery is not my cup of cake, but it's worth money
