when charging it will stay 99% for a very long time before you get 100%, it also has a sound confirmation and an orange icon will appear on the upper left hand side indicating 100%.
battery saving tips:
-uncheck "background data" under account & sync settings
-dont use live wallpapers
-disable animation or reduce it to "some"
-uncheck "data roaming" under mobile network settings
-uncheck "enable alsways on mobile data" under mobile network settings
-check "use only 2g" under mobile network settings
-download and install "advanced task killer free" to close all apps running on the background
that should make your battery last for days
Aegd, 04 Sep 2010I can't really see this Galaxy 3 or galaxy 5 competing with HTC Wildfire or X10 mini. In Swede... moreback in india wildfire and galaxy 5 are not in the same price range.. so definitely the differences are justified.. for ppl who think the quality is cheap and are ready to pay more will go for wildfire.. and for ppl like me who are satisfied with the quality and specs and also want a budget phone then they buy the galaxy 5
i have this phone. i m wondering why the battery is not reaching 100% anyone out there experience this too ?
To start off im using my galaxy 5 in writing this post. Anyway samsung i5500 & i5503 is the same the 3 at the end is release for asian countries. I dont think its corby since the name is galaxy right. it has the same appearance with corby thats why some called it corby smartphone. Anyway my galaxy 5 is A ok. Good resposive screen its a bit small though, android works perfectly with the phone's hardware, Good music phone, compare to corby and other samsung phones the galaxy 5 doesnt look cheap.
I can't really see this Galaxy 3 or galaxy 5 competing with HTC Wildfire or X10 mini. In Sweden they all have basically the same price, but the build quality on the samsung phones feels cheap and plastic, and the design isn't very attractive.
Sadly the cheap plastic feel is something that's common with many Samsung phones and it's a shame that the Samsung Wave is such nicely built phone but uses the BADA operating system. I kind of get the feeling that Samsung doesn't want to commit to making great android phones, since Samsung Galaxy S also has the same cheap plastic build, which has sadly made many customers get a HTC desire or a X10i over a Samsung Galaxy S because they disliked the "cheap" feeling of the phone.
It's not that the specs of the phone is bad, but if customers are made to pick two phones with the same specs and similar price, they will get the phone that looks more attractive and has better build quality.

1. In India the model is listed as i5503, instead of i5500. What are the differences?
2. Does it have inbuilt GPS reciever (I see many sites only mention A-GPS).
3. In India it is not yet available except at Flipkart and eBay. Univercell have it listed on their online catalogue, but not for purhcase. Any information on when this phone will be available in stores in India?
Thanks in advance for your responses, people. Thats what keeps gsmarena ticking.
manick, 01 Sep 2010hey guys.. im planning to buy this phone.. is it a good model? or shud i go for galaxy3? which... moreIf you can grab a Galaxy 3 then it's slightly better than this as it has a bigger display, a slightly faster processor and it's screen aspect-ratio would be able to play wvga-apps but of course expect lags as wvga are for Snapdagons and Hummingbirds..
