taher, 11 Aug 2011what latest android update is available for this galaxy s? e.g. honeycomb available?@taher.
Depending on your country the latest version of Android is Gingerbread. Honeycomb is for Tablets, not phones. The SGS will never see Honeycomb. It will get Icecream Sandwich though, possibly later on this year.

Anonymous, 10 Aug 2011No, it is the standard firmware via Kies.
The battery life seems to be better when it is id... more I tested the GPS out the other day and it got a fix on my position within about five feet, which I thought was excellent. However, when I started to drive it then informed me that GPS signal was lost, then network connection was lost. When it did resume connections it tried to send me the wrong way down a one way street and a dead end road.
I don't think I'll be using the navigation on the SGS again. It just doesn't work.
planning to buy my first android device,, leaning towards buying i9000 because of tight budget, here's the thing, do i9000 Samoled really burn in? and how can we prevent it(custom roms, settings?) thank you in advance..
My battery does not last long. I have to charge the my phone after every 5 hrs. I do not keep the applications open, keep the display brightness very low and does not use internet a lot. Still my battery does not last long. Please help me and give some tips on how to save the battery.
boohoo, 10 Aug 2011buying this fone is a good option but somehow it is a terroble idea to update using kies. kies... moreyes, instead of KIES, root your phone and get ROM Manager and flash a custom ROM. Much better than any stock ROM.
i.e. I am running Darky's 9.5 Extreme Edition. it includes call recording button on keypad that can record both sides of all conversation and many other tweaks including extended power menu.
Why anyone would ever stay on a STOCK ROM is beyond me.
Oh, and its virtually impossible to ''brick' and SGS.,
Go to XDA forum and read and learn.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2011xperia x10,galaxy s or lg optimus p970Depends what you want in a phone. If its a good camera (i.e very sharp pictures) then the sgs is just ok. So if u don't mind an ok camera that's 5mgp, then all the rest of the phone is awesome. The camera is usable, but not really ideal for family pics if u want a really sharp picture. But it's still a good enough camera to use.
i purchased this few days back... its sceen is too good... touch sence very good.. but when comes to camera. .. normal lense.. after spending so much money.. camera is not so good.. no flash as well. atleast should have carl zeiss lense. rest other things are good.
Hi everyone. How can I replace new market for old one. Because I installed the newest one 2.0.37 and i dont really like it. So how to get back to previous version? (not 2.0.36, but earlier..)
Please, if anyone knows, share it with me ;)
Got Mine last week, upgraded to Gingerbread, and my Apple buddies are eating humble pie...I must say this phone is great...Hoping that Samsung SA keeps us up to date...
