albar, 10 Jan 2011there are some post ive read, that after upgrading to froyo, seems lots of lags happen, wouldn... more9 out of 10 were satisfied with froyo 2.2. I dont understand why or how people have problems with froyo, cuz the updates are supposed to make things better, no? Also, the rooting things and lagfixing is far from you. I suggest u not worry abt it. Just get android phone first, you'll learn abt it and surprised.
i don't know why ppl can't access their market place, but that's only for those in the middle east, from what i heard. Staying eclair is okay, but froyo is faster and some bugs fixed.
doing rooting and lagfixing will increase the speed but it's on ur own risk. it's just like jailbreaking an iphone. some success; some failed.
P.S. I'm running on froyo 2.2, and rooted with oclf one click lagfix.
Hope it helps
there are some post ive read, that after upgrading to froyo, seems lots of lags happen, wouldnt it have been better to have stayed in eclair with galaxy s?
is nexus s cheaper? with all these raving for latest android os, then maybe the nexus would be better,
im still planning on gettng my first android phone, new to a lot of things.. when il buy this phone, ive read some people cant connect to the android market, how is that possible, do we have to do some special step yet, to be able to access the android market, cant it come automatically?
um since updating to new versions is this important, there these terms rooting to be able to upgrade, kind of too technical, how does this work? cant it be just like in the laptop, where there is a notification of upgrade, and we simply download it.. seems like even if updates are available, the actual manual updating is hard and without assurance..
Can anyone please check installing Power AMP and with Bass settings.....How is the sound quality?
I recently got my SGS I9000 international version with Froyo 2.2 pre-installed. when I plugged in ear-phones which came with it, the music quality was Okay but it was lacking bass so I tried changing settings, equalizer, effects, 5.1 Ch everything but nothing enhanced Bass.
I use Power AMP on my other android phone(LG P500) and when I installed same on SGS and increased bass, sound distortion was very high and output was bad and it couldn't produce bass however with same settings sound is great on my LG P500.
I have tried many headsets ans even external amplifier but no good.
As per GSM Arena it has perfect sound quality and I purchased it as my primary use is to listen to music.
Please Help! How can I fix this!
Anyone want SGS, execelent condition( not a single scratch) with android 8.8 A380, and with case-mate cover (tough case) screen proctector , with original bill of July.
Want to sell because i have got iPhone 6,

U can see the phone and touch it.
Price USD$80,000 O.N.O
[deleted post]It's about 480 US$. don't you think it's abit expensive for a sencond hand phone??
i serioudly need a SGS but i heard that SGS2 is coming out.is that true?
I want to buy this phone. so now I want to know about the quality of the phone. which one will be better for me? iphone 3gs or this one????
Some of the guys here seem to be very lazy, istead of posting a million times on a million sites that the phone has a lagging problem, go to a modding site and fix the lag
These are two of the best android modding forums, go try the lag fix in them, it works 100%.
p.s. guys dont be so lazy, I dont have a Galaxy S and still i know more about it than you do.
Samsung to Unveil New Galaxy S at Mobile World Congress
The successor to Samsung Electronics' hit Galaxy S smartphone will be released in February.

The new Galaxy is expected to run Android 2.3 and feature a dual-core processor for much quicker operations. It will also likely include an electronic payment system and gyroscope.
[deleted post]Just install Darky's rom V 8.0 gingerbread edition (android base v 2.3.1) from xda-developers and you'll have complete access to the market. In addition by installing Market Enabler from the market you can fake market of any region and get all the paid apps also.
karan, 08 Jan 2011can anyone tell me from where can i buy this phone in Delhi;India ??
i inquired abt ths phone... moreAnyone want SGS, execelent condition( not a single scratch) with android 2.2 froyo, and with case-mate cover (tough case) screen proctector , with original bill of July,
Want to sell because i have got iPhone 4,
Give ur details will contact u.
It would be better if u live in Ahmedabad city (Gujarat , INDIA)
U can see the phone and buy.
Price 22k no negotiations
I got both iPhone 4 and SGS. And both of them are first from each company I have ever used , as earlier I was using htc.
After spending months with each device, I would say that it depends what is more important for you to like in a device ( screen size, screen quality, battery life, customization freedom, UI smoothness).
Things that go with apple is good built & screen quality, excellent battery life , and best ui experience in terms of smoothness, good app store with quality apps.
Things that don't go with apple is lack of customization, worst ever contact book. And size of the screen if we compare it with screen size of other phones 3.7, 4.0, 4.3.
Things that go with SGS is excellent screen in terms of size and quality. Customization of ui, excellent contact book and weight of the phone.
Things that don't go with SGS are too much lag & problems with ui (such as crashing of browser and other apps) don't know what the problem is with ui, as even after upgrading it with 2.2 and using task manger , the phone misbehaves . may be it's because of samsungs touchwiz overlay with google, because if have used htc andoird Phone also but that didn't had this problem.
Battery life also is not that good as compared with iPhone 4 even though it's 1500mah ( reason may be because of andoird using battery to know ur location and updates even though u are not using the phone)
Built quality is ok, not too good, but then u get a light weight phone.
Now for me smoothness of ui is the most important thing as I would love to have no hangups and no-crashes of apps while using the phone. I can give-up the screen size 4.0 for 3.5, because u also get a better battery life with smaller screen size.
But what I would like apple to with their next upgrade of ui would be a better contact book ( like win 6.5 contacts, it had the best contact options)
So I guess which phone is best is for each person to look and decide what he wants the most in the phone and then got for it.
