Bought it yesterday for 12500 rupees, still on 1.5 cupcake. A good phone and worth its price. Waiting for 2.1 eclair update... nevertheless there are still lot of awesome android applications for 1.5. enjoying :)
What is the current price of Samsung i5700 in india
can i use skype or google voice app for free video and voice calling
who have this pls tell me about sound quality,internet and touch experience.
i tried using the phone for facebook but cant seem to log off from the internet connection, how can i stop the connection..
Please tell me 3g (mtnl) or gprs is it possible to share market transactions on I5700 Galaxy Spica.
e.g. can i go to sharekhan.com/rkglobal.net login and buy /sale share from this phone?
Has anyone tried this.
Any idea what should be done to get bsnl 3g working on samdung galaxy 5700? It worked for few days and now don't get 3g signal at all. Visiting bsnl customer service center also didn't help. Got the sim replaced. But nothing seems to helping. Airtel gprs works without any issue

i recenty went to a service center in delhi....nd they told me that they had some sort of bluetooth update..my guess its the new firmware...but they\'ll give me on 26th....so guys go ahead check ur nearby service centres....if its in singapore.....india aint far....btw.....love this fone.....very responsive....though laggs rarely when a lot of applications opened at a tym.....maybe due to the less 128 mb ram.....but with a nyc task manager.....its heaven.....best feature is web browsing nd divx/xvid playback(very fast)......camera is fyn....audio is not bad at ol for metal fans lyk me, though not the best.....with stock headfones, but decent. Its the best value for money out there......

Samsung jet is a wonderful feature phone(not a smart phone).Infact i was planning to buy JET2 but my love to android within that budget(plus an update) dragged me to buy spica.That AMOLED screen is a pleasure to watch. crystal clear images. plus its got dozens of features like: 5mp camera,D1 resol recording,slow motion recording,accelerator,proximity sensor and like spica JET2 is also a DivX certified phone.With 2 gb inbuilt memory its real fast as the name indicates.The price too has fallen by nearly 9k(Its introductory price was 23k now u get for less than 14k). Only thing that will set back you is the absence of third party applications.Installing java apps is a difficult process in itself.
To sum up:
1)If you want a multimedia phone that performs in every department and that you are satisfied with whatever is available with the phone(by default).Then you can very well go for jet.
2)if you want to customize your phone and you are not bothered about the camera department,if you love android then spica is the one for you.Rather i would say if you want a smart phone go for spica.
One more thing the JET comes with R-Type touch screens rather than the capacitive ones in the spica.So Spica is very much responsive. you need to give in a little pressure to register your touch in JET compared to spica(but its responsiveness is way better than nokia 5800).
To know more about JET(There are three critical bugs in jet am not sure about jet2 ) you can visit this group dedicated for JET:
I guess the video call is all on voip. i havent tried fring so not sure how it would work without a secondary call camera.
Yuo can update the phone from 1.5 to 2.1, but it does not support multi-touch on the upgrade.
Currently SPICA is totally out of stock everywhere in Blore. Dealers are expecting more stock in a week or two.
Is this due to upgrade to android 2.1 by Samsung or they are stopping the model?
Also, how is Jet2 (8003) compared to SPICA? I guess jet2 has more features but Samsung propriety OS unlike SPICA android OS?
Saneesh CS, 23 Apr 2010AFAIK, i5700 currently supports 1.5 version only. Do not know is it possible to upgrade to Eclair.it is you can upgrade to 2.1 samsung has offered to upgrade it in us Germany rest of uk Singapore lucky lucky people but i wht can you expect in india they just take customers to be fools here ,does not make any diffrence to they they would face problems see i as u know corby pro and spica cost the same if they give the upgrade why would people go for the corby the just want to sell lot of corby when the sale of corby drops than they will give the upgrade

may be people working at samsung india are just too lazy and do not want to work
I5700 not available in Delhi infact it is removed from samsunf mobile india website.Nor samsung want to upgrade 2.1 firmware in this mobile in India.Beacause they have Galaxy 2 and Galaxy s lined up in the upcoming time.

I am sorry for the confusion.Thankx for .
One query,irrespective of Android support or Skype not available ,isn't possible to have the video calls with one camera itself if camera is movable or infront of a mirror?
Does any one know if this has Andriod v1.5 or 2.1? The specs says both, does it mean the upgrade from 1.5 to 2.1 is possible? And also does v2.1 mean it supports multi touch?

Spica doesnt have a secondary camera,so you cannot make video calls.If thats your requirement then spica is not the one you should go for. But neverthless this phone is worth investing. To know more about this phones pros & cons keep in touch with techentrepot.blospot.com
Probably ur comments has to be directed to "Dev" not me :).You can make video calls through skype and fring in android 2.1(not sure if its available yet)!
