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..

ss, 01 Sep 2010which one has a better display x10 mini or htc wildfire or this phone? because i see it just qvgaHTC Wildfire has the worst ever display i have seen .
i think this has the best display than wildfire and x10mini..because x10mini has small screen and wildfire has same resolution as galaxy 5 but bigger screen so the icons is stretch out..galaxy 5 has 16m color but this site says it has only 256k colors..can this phone hold up to 32gb?
i think this has the best display..because wildfire has the same resolution but bigger screen so its stretch out..x10 mini is only android 1.6..this phone has 16m colors display but in this site it says 256k colors only..can it hold 32gb??
You can place a shortcut of sound and display settings on your homescreen to manually set the vibration.

[deleted post]thanks..maybe you should check out samsung's site for india to check for availability =) although it's release may also be country specific vipul...
[deleted post]Hey chill out, may be u have received a defective piece. Contact the dealer from where u got the device & ask for a replacement.
some notes on it:
-it does have swype and live wallpapers
-it can run apps that are made for HVGA screens fine(which is the most popular screen size there is for android) on a downscaled version..even WQVGA and WVGA but of course expect the lag and cropping.
- i ran a Quadrant Benchmark for it and scored 503 which is above xperia x10 =)
i have some questions too about it:
- when i opt for 'vibrate' the sounds for notification and calls automatically defaults to silent. any means of getting around it?
- is there any app available to run JAVA games in it, or any android device there is?
