Anyway u can swich to 2g whenever u dont need internet.. To my comparision iphone4 battery can last 1 and half longer than sgs... But overall you will satisfy..
I love my SGS., best phone ever. I have supertuned it with all the tricks and it FLIES. Quadrant score =1950
Android rocks and the apps and tweaking from XDA forum is tremendous.
I get about one day battery life with moderate use. But when I am in my car I have a special holder that rotates to landscape for my Co-Pilot program and I plug the charger in while I drive. so I have never had a batter go flat on me.
With all the great apps , like book reader, and other things its like mini computer.
What I like also its thin and light and smoooth and fits in my front shirt pocket nicely. no bulge
and the display is just plain AWESOME. Best display I have ever seen. Even better than iphone4.;

But symbian operating systems have a lot of tricks up their sleeves. I found a lot of useful features in the symbian operating systems that are unavailable in the android.
this might sound a bit random, but the FM radio on this is fantastic! it's so clear and never seems to lose reception!

Anonymous, 16 Jan 2011Im sgs owner.. It does drain fast mainly for the display.. If u care about battry dont buy it.ok.. thanks for the honest ans.. =) 1 last question.. can it last for a day if lets say its a normal sms and normal pick up calls(not chatting).. if can last for a day i'll go get it in 2 days time.. ^^
Just an observation, the android OS is very privacy intrusive. Every thing is linked to google and gmail account, and it just save no efforts to post everything about you on the net, including your phone number, contacts, your location, your mood, your calendar. If you try to delete your gmail account from the phone settings, you have to rest the phone to factory defaults which will require deleting ALL personal data, contacts, sms, etc.
Guys, I wish I know why market app on the android phones is blocked in the Middle East region? did not we pay top bucks same like those where the market is enabled?? I was planning to get the Galaxy Tab, but now I'll go for the ipad though more expansive but they do not have this discrimination policy...
