George, 30 Apr 2009I just can't understand why some people compare just incomparable phones??? I mean, phones the... moreAndroid is upgradgable. you can find active android forums all over internet to get the latest ROM and flash it to your phone.
I have G1 and Android OS is great (I've been a long time user of WinMo). G1 wasn't perfect out of the box, but with few tweaks, the system is running great. I have upgraded the system to 1.5 even before Tmobile releasing the update.
As far as Apps freezing/not responding/etc, Android rarely does it. Sometimes we have poorly written Apps from the market that crashes when you open it. As for the OS itself, it is more solidly build than WinMo. No memory leak (like Tmo Wing/HTC herald), screen rotation is smooth and quick, etc.
IMO, Android is a better system than WinMo, Symbian, or Blackberry. The downside that I've encounter so far is the high learning curb to be able to do more with the phone. I'm not saying learning curb for normal, daily use of the phone, but more advanced tasks like flashing ROM, using command lines to change the "secret" settings, etc.

Haha ! Android on a Samsung phone ! Features list looks great ! I am waiting to test it in a shop !
This phone has stole the homescreen off the g1 , by the dragging up , my friend has a g1 , n she completely agrees
raave, 29 Apr 2009korian brands are just jazzy. when it comes to performance they are zero. it applies to mobile... moreSomeones been watching Top Gear for way too long.
Just as good or better than class rivals.
Samsung phones are cool, although personally I'd prefer HTC's Diamond 2 or Touch HD.
I guess this will be similarly priced compared to the Diamond 2.
Am not a samsung fan but i think they are going to kake over the phone industry with thier phone specs.they too start working on an incredible or ui then it finished.
i think i will buy one of these samsung babies for my girlfiend so i can watch her use it but for me am a strong HTC fans.
pb, 30 Apr 2009 hello , GPS or not GPS in this phone ? thanks !

I just can't understand why some people compare just incomparable phones??? I mean, phones these days are more sophisticated, with better screens, more colors, more powerful chipsets... and it understandable that they're more fragile for the same reason.
And then u read that someone compares new hi-end smartphone with an old "brick" like 3-5 years old.
And one more thing that bothers me are people (read total jack**s) that write posts like "nokia rules!" SE or samsung is the best!!!" - are u re*arded??? - best thing i saw few posts earlier - improve this phone??? - what? how can samsung improve a phone that isn't out yet?
I think that this forum should help people choosing their phones and answering serious questions. if somebody has a bad experience with a phone, he/she should write what was wrong with it, could it be fixed or not... but no, u they write - phone sucks!!! i'm guessing either they actually don't own certain phone, or don't know how to use it :D
I'm owner of SE now and i'm very satisfied with it. owned a nokia before but id didn't work for me - but all in all it think nokia is a good phone... changed like 10 phones over 3 years but never had samsung.
when u buy phone in high class, u can't be wrong - all phones are great - some great, some better.
i personally like this phone for few reasons
1. it is samsung in means of quality - generally all samsung products (not just phones) are good
2. i don't like samsung os, but android seems like a better choice than windows
3. it has almost everything smartphone can have - big screen (but not too big, it's still a phone, not pocket pc), wifi, fast data transfer, solid camera, gps... and i specially like 3,5 mm audi jack so u can plug in any earphones and i think its great that it has basic keys as real buttons and not full touchscreen.
4. i like its design - modern and not too bulky
i have a question for phone with android owners - does android have a lots of errors like freezing, resenting, problems with app installations, personalizing...?
and if anybody knows - if android is all free, would it be able to update android 1.0 to a higher version whet it comes???
