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

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
hey ray ... i have seen that u r helping all the guys out... i need ur help n opinion ... basically i m confused between 2 cell phones .. one is galaxy s and the other one xperia arc .. cant decide wat to buy .. beacause wen i ask sumbudy about any of them they dont give their true opinion they get biased upon wat they have ... the thing is i like both of em ... but i have heard that galaxy s is getting old and outdated and is slow wen compared to xperia arc ... and xperia arc on the other hand has low internal memory and no rom (actually just heard it from sumbudy, dont know exactly wat rom does, throw sum light on it).. just give me a detailed comparison.. so i could decide .. i wanna buy it in a few days .. thanx in advance for ur help ... and looking forward to ur detail answer .... cheers !
hi frnds i have a doubt, pls clear it. if i already installed gingerbread 2.3.3 xxjvk. now i am going 2 install XXJVK Android 2.3.3 ROM for Galaxy S, wat i have to select, xxjvk with bootloaders or without bootloaders for rom
[deleted post]At the moment I don't know if your Galaxy S will come with Gingerbread pre-loaded in June, but if it doesn't you can easily upgrade it using a program called Samsung Kies on your PC. Or. if you're feeling adventurous you can flash your phone with a Gingerbread ROM from samfirmware usin another program called Odin. A lot of people actually prefer Odin to Kies as it is considered more stable.
All the best.
mac, 22 May 2011Thanks Ray. Seems a flippin awsome phone whichever stage of android its on.Mac. I did notice that Samsung haven't included the proper Gingerbread keyboard, so I'm using the one available from the market. Just wondering how long before they release 2.3.4?
There are still a few bugs to iron out, like the choppy scrolling in the browser.
