I'm on about my 13th month of an 18 month contract with Orange, will I be able to upgrade soon or will I have to wait 5-6 more months?
Went to 2 tmobile shops today and both said they should know if they are getting this phone in 1-2 weeks.

Hi, could u pls elaborate on how to optimize the battery life? What do u mean by cycles of 5?
Ok so sound quality is not exactly the best when recording in 720p. How about when recording in D1 resolution? Is the sound quslity better then?

i feel really sad that i buy this crappy,BIG piece of sh!!!!t......now you all know e specially smasung thats ripping me off.oh whell!!
about battery issue:
back side of phone is part of metal or steel? if yes this is normal to drain battery a lot...remember N91 or I8510 with back of metal part and have same issue...
any I8910 owners can confirm metal parts on back side of phone?
Omnia 3 (non-Windows version) will hopefully have Bluetooth 3.0 and 32GB internal memory, as well as better audio and a FM Transmitter after all this talk. Hopefully it'll have Symbian Squared OS with 800x480 resolution (full backwardscompatible with Symbian 60), and besides that, this phone is perfect. But I won't get it, as I need a bit better screen resolution, and as of now only WinMo phones offer that, and it's well known that WinMo sucks!
Keep up Samsung, and I might actually buy your flagship phone this Xmas, if it will have everything Omnia HD had as well as the features above. That would be the first Samsung phone I'd buy, and I wouldn't be disappointed either, hopefully.
We'll see. However, if this doesn't happen, I'll get the Nseries flagship model instead.

Perhaps you have a faulty phone, and/or battery.
I would contact Samsung about this and see what they think. Or otherwise contact Orange because the phone should be very energy efficient due to the OLED screen, and power efficient CPU.

This is my experiance with batterys..The n95 was fairly good then dissappear quick yet sometimes it would last a lot longer,,i am using n96 and that can go quickly from 5 bars to empty but the past 2 days its held really well..When i got innov8 the battery was terrible but somone gave a trick to maximise it which i tried..so sometimes batterys act a bit odd yet never had this trouble in 10 years except for the last year..Lithium ion/polymer batterys have a chip in them to stop charging when full,,i alwys thought it was the fone..The only explanation why some say fones have good battery life and some dont is perhaps a faulty batch of cells now and again OR people are using fones less or mors than they think..
bluetooth is always off and the same goes for the wireless scanning. When i put the phone in standby i always check to close all the running applications obviously apart from the 3 main ones.
I have done the things regarding the battery charging as i am very picky when it comes to expensive stuff and will do everything properly when i first get it.
Anyway it could just be that my battery is rubbish...but in my personal experience the life of it sucks and there is no legitimate reason for it to do so as i have tried many things to rectify the problem, still i love the phone though.
Key, 12 Jun 2009I have to say that unbranding this phone is the way forward. The touch is good but obviously n... moreFace it my friend. Battery is very good, by the way season it first it's Lithium. Anyway that why most phones allow you to carry a spare battery should yours go flat. No way for the iPhone cant change battery . Dont get me wrong I am a Mac user and has been for more than 10 years. I only support Apple products but I know that the iPhone is good but it still does not have the technology to really compete with bigger boys like Nokia, Samsung and so on.

I had noticed on a couple of occassions that my battery seemed to drain rather quickly. However, the majority of the time the battery life is incredible!
Although obvious, remember that if you use many functions of the phone throughout the day, the battery will inevitably run out quickly. Also As someone mentioned earlier there are several things you should disable to help maintain battery. Also remember if you are using the phone outside then the sensor will make the screen brighter. This could also impact on the battery. And again as mentioned earlier it is imperative that you charge the battery for at least 8 hours before initial use. I would suggest running your battery to empty and then charging it for this amount of time with the handset turned off. Hopefully this will remedy your problem.
Personally i charge my phone every night anyway so battery life is not an issue. Having said that, by the end of the day i always seem to have full battery!
Bearing in mind how powerfull the handset actually is, i think the battery life is amazing!
