never_say_never, 09 Feb 2010I am looking to buy the Galaxy Spica this week.. I hear Spica will be getting a 2.1 Android up... morei5700 is available at such affordable price tag, so 128mb of ram is never a deal breaker. 128 will not affect your common activities unless you open multiple apps (heavy apps) at the same time. The average package size of an android app is 2MB (including resource expansion), but the thing is you won't use each n every app at the same time. You might like to remove the ones you don't use often. Task killing may come helpful in such a case.
About battery : battery backup is so n so. In my case the battery lasts max. 1 to 2 days at moderate-to-heavy use.
-- major issues those i've found:
- virtual keyboard in landscape mode too slow to use. so if u r a heavy texter, keep this thing in mind before buying. (rumored update to 2.0 might solve the issue, hopefully!)
never_say_never, 09 Feb 2010I am looking to buy the Galaxy Spica this week.. I hear Spica will be getting a 2.1 Android up... morePhone own two weeks, I get 142 megabytes of RAM when running ... all applications are free, about 30 to 60 megabytes Internal memory after installing navigation, games and other software is there for me, about 95 megabytes free. Battery lasts about 2 to 3 days with the last few days wi-fi and games. With the phone I am very satisfied.
I am looking to buy the Galaxy Spica this week.. I hear Spica will be getting a 2.1 Android upgrade soon.. is a 128 MB RAM a deal breaker?.. I dont understand the impact, does it leave too little memory for installing apps or does it just slow the phone down?.. also I hear as of now Android apps can only be installed on internal memory and Spica has only 200 MB internal memory.. is this a problem?.. roughly how many apps can be installed within this memory? the battery quoted is an impressive 1500 mAH.. but I hear from its predecessor 7500 reviews that it was pretty bad.. is the battery problem resolved in Spica?
overall given its attractive pricing, is it still worth the deal? plzzz answer these queries as I need to decide soon.. first hand users plzzz throw some light!

Matt Parkman, 07 Feb 2010Can any1 tells me how's the phone's function?My first android phone and I really like it (bang for the buck). Battery life is good too; I constantly use 3G and it last for almost 2 days.
Ninad, 01 Feb 2010I got it in Mumbai at 12k, real worth for money phone.you are saying that its a great phone but aren't facing any problem with data transfer?
Mr. Spicah, 06 Feb 2010It's Feb now and still no news when the Android 2.0 will come out for this phone.Hey, we all are eagrly awaiting release announcement. In the mean time, check out here http://samsung-firmwares.tk/ and look for 'samsung news' section - A newspaper picture about the Samsung i5700 which shows it is upgradeable to android 2.0. So i'm very optimistic that samsung should announce upgrade this feb or in coming march.

This phones coming out to rogers network in canada, we'll just see how people like
The screen is 3 inches, not 3,2. That's one of the biggest differences between this phone and I7500 and often confuses people because here it says it's 3,2.
