after being so frustrated of having to wait for the official 2.3 for this phone, I'm now looking at HTC or BB phones for replacement. I didn't want to believe people before when they said Samsung really sucks at customer support, but I had to learn the hard way and realize it's true. So hopefully before next week ends, I have a new phone already.
AnonD-10974, 15 Jun 2011Hey everyone, I really want to know which one is better for eveything; HTC Desire S or Galaxy ... moreHad the galaxy S since last August, it literaly leaves the other phones you mentioned as second grade, the only single thing it doesn't have is thier flash. My daughter has the SG 2 and that is the only screen I've seen to better it bar none including IP 4. Remember I actually have the phone, but check the reviews and youtube videos of the phones you mentioned, and you'll find theres little to discuss, you have to go to dual core phones to beat the I9000, even then sometimes the graphics still stand up, and the screen I've already mentioned.I know some people have had problems with some units, but, its not the whole story, if you've got an average brain and patiently set up your phone properly, and you don't meddle with custom roms when you have no idea what your doing,this phone you may never want to change.They seem to be starting to release the next variation of gingerbread to it via kies in Germany as well if the reports are to be believed over on XDA site, so as for old outdated phon no way,and GSMA still makes reference to it in new SUPER phone reviews. As for my phone its been a pleasure and has upgraded via kies(don't like kies that much.)each time without effort, I know mine is a good unit, and I'm gratefull, but thats the gamble we all take every time we get a new phone, no matter which brand we choose.
Good luck with your choice.M

Hey everyone, I really want to know which one is better for eveything; HTC Desire S or Galaxy S? I'm planing to buy a new smartphone nowadays, well after a 7 years of Nokia 6630 usage it's now the time :)but I couldn't decide, galaxy s is cheaper and faster as far as I know but also bigger and wider lets say :/ a little bit difficult to carry on the pocket I guess...on the other hand; desire s has a slower display and gpu performance as I see, gets less points from the benchmarks..but it's smaller, more comfortable to carry and a led flash for the camera..also desire s has a better style :) and more solid too..But honestly I have no idea about the software issues of both devices and the most important thing for me is this. So please help me to decide. Thanks already :D
I have my galaxy S now for two weeks and I use to have problems with the battery going flat half a day, but I updated it to Firmware 2.3.4 yesterday morning and I took it off the charger excatly and 7:00am and I have been using it until now and there is still about 40% battery life.
So I think that so far everything is going well with the 2.3.4 firmware and cant wait when they release the wiztouch 4 for the Galaxy S, I hope they do...
