This looks like it supports HSPA AWS (band IV) and can thus be used on T-Mobile US. Can anyone confirm this? Better yet if someone on T-Mobile US who is using it can comment.
The battery life for this thing is criminaly short. Maybe this could be some sort of improvement but i doubt it : http://cgi.ebay.com/2200mAh-Extended-Battery-Cover-for-Samsung-i7500-Galaxy_W0QQitemZ290391266722QQcmdZViewItemQQptZPDA_Accessories?hash=item439cab15a2#ht_3461wt_927
Video quality is just awfull! I certainly hope that this thing gets upgrade to Android 2.1 or better and that at least some of its problems would be resolved.
And , yea, if you re browsing the internet you cant accept any incoming calls! !()!#/()!#/()!#()( !

Galaxy is very good smartphone with a lot of usefull applications, most of them completely free on Android market. If you have turned on many widgets and background applications you need to know that battery will survive only one day, with some smart turns off battery will work 3 days too. But this is usuall for the most smartphones on the markets and galaxy is not an exception. Reported problems with 3G connections depend on your mobile service provider and its infrastructure, it is not a fault of the Galaxy. With New PC Studio you can install USB and Android drivers for Galaxy, then you need to go on Settings-About the phone-Additional settings on your phone and to switch on Mass storage only. On any Windows OS then you will see your Galaxy as USB mass storage device and be able to transfer from or on your phone all files: pictures, music, text files. You can synchronise your e-mails and contacts only with Google Mail, because it is the Google smartphone and they prefered their own services. If you open your Google Mail account on your PC, you will see everithing from your phone: contacts, mails, messages etc. Unfortunately, Samsung did not add good manuals for the Galaxy and many of these informations are not presented in written form. But, if you call your local service, usually connected with a selling company which provides Samsung phones in your country, there you will get all neccessary informations.
Is this phone worth to buy? How is the performance compared to HTC Tattoo? tattoo is costlier than Galaxy..
my problem is a battery,working a 20 hours,how solve that problem
Actually galaxy is gonna get an upgrade to 2.1 by june it seems along wit galaxy spica , and its the cheapest android phone in the indian market selling for jus t around 280$ which is a solid deal , im gettin mine next week.
Dear All; Android is not the best option yet for mobile OS, I'm currently using Samsung I7500,,,so many disadvantages, as an example:
*Battery Life's too short.
*Can't get access to android market.
*While connecting to 3G, all incoming calls fails.
*File Transfer between New PC Studio and the mobile phone is not available,,,
I send many complains through Samsung customer service centre, but without reply.
Android upgrade, 30 Jan 2010Can I upgrade to Android Eclair once I buy this phone? That is very important for me.The current disadvantages of this phone could only be solved only by upgrading the firmware to Anriod 2 but there is no news of the updated software from Samsung yet.
now samsung is the best mobile phone company any body know who this miracle happnd bcoz few month back i join samsung and now samsung no1
samsung is the best mobile phone company bcoz recently i joined samsung
the key pad is too small. should have a half qwerty which would be easier.Had the phone a month & already had it in for battery check & upgrade!
battery life certainly short,keep the charger handy. I think it is a powerful phone but the charger needs upgrading
Can I upgrade to Android Eclair once I buy this phone?
That is very important for me.
