Samsung Galaxy 3 GT-I5801
This phones battery performance is very very poor. It takes more than 3.30hrs to get fully charged. The power doesn't last even a day. When it reaches 50%, chances are that it may go down to 5% very shortly. Samsung has released the phone without proper factory testing. Samsung claims it is a powerful battery but what is the use. I have followed all battery calliberation methods while charging but of no use. Fresh buyers be cautious about this problem with the phone. I think samsung will stop production of this model all of sudden. It is better for samsung if they follow stringent factory testings before it reaches stores.

For All Those Who Are Waiting For Froyo Update:=
There is no chance that Samsung GT-5801 will get this update. Here is the reply I got from Samsung regarding this. "Android 2.2 version is not available for GT-I5801 handset".
