ruv, 24 May 2011will they update the touchwiz to 4.0...Touchwizz 4 is a Samsung thing like htc sense and cannot be ported,,ive looked round and thats my answer.
To be honest when i get an Android smartphoner i use launcher pro.
I am going for sgs 2 but this is still one of the top smartphones ever built and gets better with Roms.
There are certain thngs you should do before you die and i reckon looking at a super Amoled screen should be one of them..
anyone knows if samsung will update the software to touchwiz 4.0, because 3.0 is looking old compared to 4.0
sen, 24 May 2011in 16gb memory version is only 13gb available as unternal memory..??The missing gigs was used by the operating system of your phone. With 8 gb, the remaining is 5.7 gigs.don't wory 13 gigs is more than enough for your apps.
i9000 user, 23 May 2011is Android 2.3 Gingerbread is already available in the philipines .I don't see asian 2.3.3 firmwares on SamFirmware.com.
I'm from the Philippines too but I'm using the 2.3.3 JVO firmware (UK)
Tried this phone with froyo updated. The phone become more sh*t compare to its originsl eclair. Hopefully the new gingerbread fits nicely into this phone. Come on samsung, dont give us another crap!!
I am thinking between Nexus S I9023 model(SLCD), becouse we dont have here I9020 model, or Samsung S I9000.
I don know what to choose

AnonD-9113, 23 May 2011hey ray ... i have seen that u r helping all the guys out... i need ur help n opinion ... basi... more@saf.
So you are looking to by a new phone and can't decide between the Samsung Galaxy S or the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc.
For a start you can read a detailed review from http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/30/sony-ericsson-xperia-arc-review/
about the SE Xperia Arc. I have to say, before reading that review I would have bought the phone no questions asked. But now I'm not so sure. Mostly because of video playback and average battery life.
I will say though that the battery life on my Galaxy S will last a day of heavy use and two to 2.5 days of light use.
Both phones are running on Gingerbread but according to that review the Arc is laggy due to it's UI putting too much strain on the hardware. The Galaxy S is very quick and smooth running Gingerbread.
My honest suggestion would be to spend a few extra pounds and get the Galaxy S2 which is a fantastic phone at the moment. If you not prepared to spend that sort of cash then go for the Galaxy S. It's easy to use, will rarely give you problems and if your feeling adventurous you can easily flash it with a custom ROM.
All the best.
Darky Version 10.1 (stable release) is in town. Go get it guys. I'm waiting my full battery then flash it. Go here: http://www.darkyrom.com/community/index.php?threads/v10-1-fast-sleek-beautiful.3100/page-14#post-48447
