My Quadrant average is about the same at 1500-ish but to be honest, those scores are pretty meaningless. What actually matters is if the phone shows visible lag or not. Mine does not and is quick and responsive. If your phone is noticeably slow and laggy there's some other underlying cause.
Did you perform a factory reset after you flashed to JVS? It's considered best practice to do a reset after each upgrade to remove anything left over from previous firmwares.

@ Freefaller and Ray Hipkiss
Well i am facing a bit of lag issues.... i used launcher pro recently and sometimes i feel that it lags a bit... also when i play a graphic intensive game like Real Football 2011 i feel there is definitely some lag that i see.... also i heard that installing a lag fix helps in improving quadrant scores as well.... i am currently getting an approximate score 1050 every time i check and i have seen people reporting scores of around 1500-2000 after using a lagfix....
and has anyone tried the cyanogenmod 7.1 on their phones? if they have then could u tell me what all improvements u see when compared to stock roms? and yea my current firmware is a rooted JVS i.e a 2.3.5 so after flashing cyanogenmod rom will my phone still be rooted or i will have to root it again?

For all the links you gave for upgrading 2.3.3 to 2.3.5
Technically, I have not used ODIN system so far ever.
My Gingerbread works like silk.
I dont think without any video tutorial i can perform this task. LOL.
By the way thanks a lot for your help on solving my issues. Keep posting your valuable comments at this portal.
Keep in touch.

This is absolutely normal for a new device. What you need to do is to use it for a couple of weeks to give the battery chance to calibrate properly.
You also need to turn off non essential functions like auto synchronization, packet data (when not needed), live wallpapers plus various other things. You will get to understand these things over time.
I easily get two to three days of moderate use from a single charge.
All the best.
Guddu, 08 Oct 2011Thanks Freefaller for the reply over my problems. and a general question to everyone. Can... moreu should update ur kies first before updating ur fone. the latest andriod version for ur fone should be 2.3.4. o.k ope ive being helpful
I got this phone few days back. The BIG and Main issue is Battery Life. The battery life is too bad and comes for max of 12hrs if i make calls and listen to music for 2 hrs. If I put on standby it comes for a day if u r lucky.
My sincere advice is not to go for any this device if u r putting huge money on this battery less device.

Freefaller is correct. There is no need to apply a lagfix to 2.3.5 as it runs smooth as silk.
All a lagfix does is to convert the file system from the default RFS to EXT4, but Samsung have fixed many of the bugs in Android which caused the phone to lag when using RFS in previous versions of Android.
All the best

Can you explain the problem you are having?
I've got v2.3.5 on my SGS and there is NO lag at all. I have also flashed three other models of this phone and none of them are experiencing any lag either.

First of all, you can't upgrade to Gingerbread v2.3.5 via Kies because it hasn't been officially released yet. You will have to use a program called Odin to do it.
You can find insructions on how to upgrade here with links to the files you will need:
Read the page at least twice before beginning. You will lose all your Contacts, Apps etc. (as it states), so make sure you back up everything before you start.
Flashing the phone is painless, but read the disclaimers before you do it.
After installing v2.3.5 you may wish to 'Root' your phone as well. The link for this is here:
I have not experienced any problems with v2.3.5 - Ihe phone is much faster now, no lags at all, and the battery life has improved a lot; but at the end of the day it is down to personal choice.
How can i activate the 3G of this phone using the Smart Buddy Network here in Philippines..Thanks a lot.

Few of the bugs in this phone are that it will happen slot while you are browsing the web will freeze and will close down on it's own.If you have too much stuff on your phone it will lag slot and machines when you'll take pictures or make videos it won't come into gallery straight away you'll have to switch off the phone and then back on.
it is not to late to get this phone ??
