calvin, 30 Jan 2011lag very very often,ram only 304mb not 512mb.cheatingIt's not cheating. Galaxy S really has a 512mb ram but. 304mb can be used by the user and the remaining is reserved for the OS
btw: I have a +330mb ram since I upgraded my firmware to 2.2.1
I received my Galaxy i9000 on cell C business contract on 28th November 2010. Its stanby time is 8 hrs with all features switched off. Cell C have made three attempts to fix it, it is the 30th January 2011 and i still dont have a fully working Samsung i9000.

And if you dont like apple nor Android, what will you buy? Windows phone? Or Blackberry? If you buy those you may as well go for Android.
P.S. I didnt say Symbian because Symbian OS is an insult to smart phones.

I am just sharing the facts which I found out in my use of Android phones. If you dont want to believe leave it. and by the way even I dislike the apple phones.

The whole world wants Android while you are a person who is complaining about a very fast task manager system. If you want a task manager better than what Android can provide, go buy a PC and not a phone. And you are also an idiot who will pay hundreds of dollars to buy apps from the iStore instead of downloading most of the free Android apps. If you dont want android, I suggest you go for Nokia 1100, that's the best suited phone for you, cos it doesnt have multitasking and application market problems cos it doesnt have any at all, another option is to empty your bank deposits and buy an iPhone and then keep spending your salary every month to buy apps.
Those who have got guts to read this truth, for those only:
" I HATE ANDROID PHONES "
Probably you will be thinking, I have gone mad or what right ?
I will prove that now :
1) Very worst Task manager, even the task manager you get from that Android can't control the tasks.
eg. Say suppose you open a browser and at certain point you want to close the browser,,one way is to click the home menu else go back and back and back,,that will not end if you have went through lot of pages. and the side effects every one can guess,,battery wastage,,data leakage,,RAM wastage.
Hope my first point every one got it. and will agree.
2) I appreciate Android apps, but just think once, dont you think those apps looks so cheap ( cheap here i mean 3rd class ) at times.
eg. for the same kind of task there will 'n' no. of developers and many software,,and you will become old in finding the perfect app for you which suits your need. and here too , if you install many apps,,that means many more apps will be running in back ground,,so point 1 continued from here.
Hope I proved this point too.
Now you all will ask me one question :
" what's the big deal in it, I will install one task killer or task manager or system info provider or etc etc,,so many apps. and will clean "
My answer to this is " Boss how many times will you do it in a day,,if you keep on doing it,,then you will use that android just for closing apps, rather than using it.
Note: This is my opinion for Android phones,,some may got my point and some may oppose me, but i dont care. As I already mentioned this review is only for those who can here the truth.
excellent & good phone! but no flash. :( hope samsung will do something on that.

An activated program is on there. That is all I can tell you.
You have to read and do the rest yourself. People in that forum can help you.
In my opinion its the best Nav program and I have all of them... TomTom, Route 66, Garmin, and CoPilot.
Go for it.

Cheer and peace..
BlueOrange, 28 Jan 2011yes. I said I'll wait for the update but I changed my mind and decided to flash using Odin.

Registry patching Kies or using Odin has the same effect, only that Kies patch is actually easier and works even if your 3btn combo doesn't work...
Cambodia SGS, 28 Jan 2011U flashed 2.2.1 with Odin and what if the different with trick Kies mate?
I remembered las... moreyes. I said I'll wait for the update but I changed my mind and decided to flash using Odin.
the difference is when you tricked kies, you change the product code of your phone from your original to another country (example: originally a malaysian pcode changed to UK pcode). unlike in flashing via Odin, you keep your original pcode and still receive an update when that update is already available in your country/region.
and yes! it's easier to update firmware using Odin than the iTunes ripped off KIES.
