This phone has android 2.1 with market support so no lack of software functionality.
only problems are
1. ram is low (160 MB), i guess 256 MB of ram would have made it a much faster device.
2. no dedicated camera shutter button, only touch to capture.
3. The phone attracts fingerprints a lot.
contrary to some comments, the battery life is good one cam manage two days easily. Just remember to turn off things like GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth off when not using. Also, the camera is autofocus and takes great shots.
You can consider buying Sony Experia X8 (after it gets eclair upgrade i.e.,android 2.1 of course) but don't buy Nokia X6 8GB or 5800. HTC wildfire is bit too costly for it's poor screen resolution, but the build quality and camera is pretty good. You might also consider samsung JET, the screen is gorgeous and very sensitive (although it's resistive).
Altogether samsung galaxy 3 is a nice phone but you have to take care of this device and not burden it too much. Enough for casual users.
Sunpreet Aulakh, 22 Oct 2010I buyed this phne 15 days ago . This phne has quite good features but its hardware is not mad... moredude use task killer it will help u to make it more faster n release ram and battry gud use it in a better way
I buyed this phne 15 days ago .
This phne has quite good features but its hardware is not made for the software,as we all Know android hs bunch of softwares but its internal ram is only 100MB so when 3-4 apps are continuously working then it become slower. I hd a restart prob. too.
And battery realy sucks.....
Very good one can be compared with Galaxy S GTI9000.
As i used galaxy S GTI900 also.
thanks to samsung ,
