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...

SGS really got alot of problem...? like example the batt drain very fast and so on..? cos i'm using x10 if i go buy sgs this will be my 1st samsung hp..
[deleted post]Dude N8 sucks, I have used it, symbian is the worst OS you'll find. A person who doesnt care about what phone he's carrying will buy symbian.
On my 2nd phone in 2 weeks. Battery life no more than 8 hrs with moderate use....?? Otherwise a fantastic phone. Anyone with similar experience?
[deleted post]Its just a stat... N8 price in my country decline rapidly while sgs stay fixed since
released date.. U can judge by yr self.
bile mkd, 16 Jan 2011where can i find games for galaxy s which i can download via my pcjust type 'gamename.apk' in google,you will get a lots of download links, just download them and then transfer to your phone and then install on phone
guys its something out of this world its big its slim actually its a powerfull device ive ever seen
If you live in the Middle East area, DO NOT Buy the phone. The market is disabled for this region. SAM which is a shitty version of market has few crappy applications and Samsung Apps do not support android phones which is truly a weird situation because you end up with a good phone but without applications...
I prefer this phone rather than N900. This one has better processor, better screen, fast and reliable. *thumbs up*
But if you are an apps craze, better get the iPhone 4.
digi, 15 Jan 2011I`ve got my galaxy S since one month now. the only drawback i`m facing is the battery autonomy... moreactually, it cannot goes up to 1000h of standby time. But if u didnt use the phone, it can last till 7 days. But, how possible you can just watch the phone for a week without having messages or calls.
I just got this phone from local market (Middle East) and seems modified to support Arabic, what I want to know is that how can I get the Android Market App back as I can't find it. Appreciate your feedback!.
Any word on Galaxy S back in India? Last update I got that its coming back in feburary.
