My only regret about this fone is that samsung and android altogether have a really bad RAM management if not the worst. 512mb should be a lot-at least more than enough- but from my experience so far this fone can just barely survives it.and that is without widgets or even live wallpaper.just plain OS. It even shows noticable lags and hangs while playing HQ games like Asphalt or even CK Zombies...and that is shameful..
The problem is lots of application are filling up the RAMs even when theyre on idle. Which is why this samsung takes up a massive 200-odd Mbs on idle while symbian is only a quartrr of that and apple less than 100mb.
Ice cream would taste really yummy on my GalaxyS than edible ice cream!!
Samsung should give 1st preference to this device which made it so famous n profitable!!
i wish the new Icecreamsandwich OS would auto-update all our phones just like the iOS did in the i4

The perfectionist seems to be you, not me. You're the one ranting on about Samsung's policies, which is their concern, not yours. I know two people who have a SGS and are quite happy with Gingerbread v2.3.3 and can't see any problem with it.
If you are as clever as you make yourself out to be and you are not happy with v2.3.3 then why not flash the phone yourself to v2.3.5 and BE happy?
I flashed my phone to v2.3.5 and rooted it as well in about 15 minutes. If you or anyone else is interested in doing the same then go here to find out how to do it:
and here to install the Chainfire Kernel to root it:

2.3.5 official or rooted one ?
100% rooted thing only.
are you happy with the way samsung release updates ?
Do you think pushing update is much complicated thing for a company like samsung?
its just matter of 4 developers and 6 testers. Samsung cont afford to hire 10 ppl on the device that sold over 10 million?
10 people and 10 days more then enough to push a update out. anyways what you using 2.3.5 is came out from 2/3 peoples hard work only and also they may concentrated less then 15 days only.

You claim your Galaxy S is almost 2 years old. Where do you people get them from before their release date?

I have looked at various web sites and they all seem to agree that the Galaxy S was released in June 2010, which means that it has only been available for 16 months.
How come you've had one for 18 months?
Just for the record, my Galaxy S in running Gingerbread v2.3.5 and there is absolutely NO lag whatsoever!
all the people who have problems with the lag, lag alg, try upgrading to a custom rom Like Darky rom 10.2.2. I had a battery life of 8 hours Standby with Froyo 2.2 and now with darky rom its fast and lag free. I get 5 days with stanby. 3days of battery when using it regularly. I was a beginner with custom roms and it was very easy to do. Do remember if you do it incorrectly your phone will be blocked, meaning it will not work if you do it incorrectly..
In Applications, When I tap Calender but Calender did not open and options of Face Book and Google accounts are opened. Why ?

Samsung please hire software professionals also, who can make your phones ( S & S2) lag free and updates faster.
I am saying the same from last year.
Whats the use of great hardware without functioning smoothly.
For Example, whats the use of front camera, when its not working with gtalk. Galaxy Ace which doesnt have front camera is updated with 2.3.4, whats the use.
though the download is successful when i download any song or ringtone in mp3 format, it do not plays when i restart my fone. it automatically change to mpeg format nd the fone do not support it. why is that so?
