Hey friends as they say in Android we
can change the complete ui of the
phone. I guess using launchers. So do
we have to root our phone to use that
feature or without rooting also we can
change the complete ui of the phone?

I know this because our company decided to refurbish these phones 2 months back, and I was in charge of seeing through the process.
The i9000's were delivered clean to the various outlets, and then it seems Android 2.2 was installed by the outlets themselves. Samsung did NOT install 2.2 on these phones.
i9003 however is a brand new phone. Although some of the hardware is the same as the original SGS, they were manufactured fresh this year.

Batterylife is just as good as on any other advanced smartphone today, and browsing the web or playing games will drain the battery fast on any phone.

It's a great phone to have... moreMost of the problems are true..Especially the lagging issue..However, my galaxy hangs only when using 3g not gprs..and yes the gps is bad though it works on gprs/edge/3g as well..you can increase the battery life by swithching off data connections..
N about lagfix..even if you use lagfix, dont expect the phone to be as smooth as i-phone..it still hangs terribly..even the games and videos lag periodically..

I bought my Galaxy S i9000 from Letsbuy.com, and arrived in 4 days. It's a great phone to have, however there are some very well known issues with this phone.
1). Came with upgraded version of Android (i.e. Froyo 2.2.1)
2). Nice display
3). 16GB inbuilt memory
1). The phone gets terribly heated up when GPS, GPRS work together
2). GPS never works(unless you have WiFi) - this is a known issue with the original Samsung Galaxy S, but they never fixed it it seems. To fix it, you will have to root your phone and that kills the warranty!
3). Battery life is less than 1 day
4). Speaker volume is very feeble, headset is just an average type nothing great to speak about.
5). There is a solid lag in the response. (lagfix is available in the market for rooted phones, however that voids the warranty so i didn't try). This is a major problem which I am experiencing, and it is spoiling the experience of my new phone. Even Samsung Galaxy Ace does not lag like this one :(
While I am trying to sort the issue with Samsung, new buyers please be aware of the product. The interest here is just to keep everyone updated, no intention to tarnish the image of Letsbuy or Samsung.
[deleted post]Recently the Galaxys S were sold with 2.2 already installed in them.
ryan 23442, 26 Mar 2011do not listen to raj !!!I bought a galaxy last month and it came with 2.2 pre-installed
