Two other things you forgot to mention:
1) Download a decent Task Killer. It's surprising how many apps run in the background without you knowing.
2) Goto Settings>Accounts & sync and turn OFF Background data.

Battery life on any modern smartphone is dependent on how much it is used, as well as whether Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are switched on or not. Turn off those three things when they are not being used to save battery life.
Other things that will eat your battery are internet browsing, listening to music, watching videos and playing games. Also having a live wallpaper active will drain the battery pretty fast. Choose a pure black wallpaper for prolonged battery life.
It's also a good idea to charge your battery whenever you can to keep it topped up. It won't hurt the battery doing this as it is a Li-ion battery which doesn't have a " memory ", unlike the old Ni-cad ones that did.
i got a Samsung Galaxy S mobile received from someone, it got abut 4 months but the battery life is lowered to 6-8 hours, what can i do in this situation the battery is 1500 mA to original one, any suggestion?
Savouy, 18 May 2011Can anybody tell me which is better galaxy s or galaxy ace? :)of course GALAXY S!
Savouy, 18 May 2011Can anybody tell me which is better galaxy s or galaxy ace? :)hey man.
galaxy ace is no match to the galaxy S.
I just bought this phone and its still on Android 2.2 but...it seems its camera DOES have continous autofucus despite what GSMArena says......whenever i film a distant object and refocus to something closer the autofocus kicks in and focuses the closer target.
Im 100% sure that it HAS continous autofocus despite nobody mentioning it.Would be nice if GSMArena looked into this.
Warmly recomended to anyone wanting a good all in 1 phone.
Savouy, 18 May 2011Can anybody tell me which is better galaxy s or galaxy ace? :)galaxy sss!!!
That's correct. You have the update because you have the NEE product code.
All the best.
For those of you who can't get Gingerbread (or can't wait), I have the solution.
Head over to:
There you will find a link to the ROM you need, and instructions on how to flash it onto your phone.
One thing it doesn't tell you though:-
After Stage 5, first put your phone into Recovery mode - Volume UP + Home + Power.
Then choose 'wipe data/factory reset
Then choose 'wipe data partition
After that turn your phone OFF (wait for it to vibrate).
Then follow the instructions from Stage 6.
I've just done mine and 'About phone' confirms that I have Gingerbread.XWJHV, which according to Kies is the NEE version.
Remember, the first boot after the Update takes about 5 Minutes. Be patient, it will Reboot.

Ahh, so that's why!
The Product Code does indeed finish in CPW, so now I now.
I updated Kies to v18.104.22.1684_11 before trying, so it must be a case of wait and see.
Thanks for the info.

Its the 3 lettered code in brackets after the firmware version in kies. Yours may say CPW, in which case the update isn't ready yet. If the product code says XEU you should be able to update. Try updating kies first. Then check again.
All the best.

Strange, (seeing as she bought her SGS from Carphonewarehouse in the UK, so it is an unlocked model), I thought it would have the update, but it hasn't yet.
[deleted post]Yep. Having NEE as your product code is the reason you have Gingerbread.
All the best.

It seems you are right in your assumption. I have looked at several forums about the battery issue and almost all of them agree with what you say.
Anonymous, 19 May 2011is the 2.3 update available through kies in any country?No, it is only available for XEE ( Sweden / Nordic countries ),
XEU ( Europe countries ) and NEE ( Finland ).
Other countries will follow shortly.(See link)

I didn't mention anything about calibrating the battery as you had already instructed him on how to do that, and it would have been rude of me to tell him the same thing.
All the best.
