Anonymous, 01 Jan 2011When i go to settings---about phone and scroll to firmware version it says 2.2..If i have 2.2.... moreAfter the upgrade I described I have Firmware version 2.2.1 Build number FROYO.XXJPY.
This upgrade suprisingly has been very good. No noticeable lag and GPS is fixed.
Repeat I am based in the UK. Upgrade was official uggrade via Kies. I never had any custom firware or lag fix.
Gaurav Mirchandani, 02 Jan 2011Yes you are right about Nexus S lacking a few features, but you missed out on one of the plus ... moreYeah.. Latest phones get the latest updates, as the phone model gets older the updates will also be slowed down. Same thing will happen to nexus S.
SGS is now stable with the 2.2.1 update. So can live with that forever.
btw, Radio is required when you are in a city like bangalore! its not a thing to be ignored at all!
and so is TV out when you have a HD tv at home u tend to see it on a big screen when you are at home. This is just my personal opinion. so you may not find tv out to be a worthy feature
tuak from kuching.Ms, 02 Jan 2011Pls reply this person report as I have the same problem.expensive hp like this shouldn't have ... moreMy goodness had to trawl back to read that opinion,it would have been best to repeat the opinion..
Ok i know of no-one with this problem but i know what wrong and its battery failure..It sounds like the battery has lasted a month and then the lithium cells have exhausted pre-maturly.You should get a new battery ,free of charge, as it should last at least 18 months minimum..In uk you would probably get a new fone but by your vocabulary you could be in india or asia??
The unit is faulty and because you charged you fone initially then it is charging,,so your battery is faulty..
If you get new batterry and its not remedied then the fone is at fault BUT its rare and batery failure is more likely..
Go back to the seller or dealer and ask for new battery,,there is no argument at the dealer because the SGS is what 7 months old and battery should be fine even if charged twice a aday.
If you bought it off someone then its up to them to take it up with where they bought it from.
What is the point of appbrain??? You sync everything and hard reset your device download the app and there is nowt their..I thought the idea was it let you redownload what you had on your device before you reset it..I f you are looking at your fone you know what apps you have cause its in front of your eyes ..Does anything work theses days for crying out loud.

Just "With google" inscription.
if you find something else that means that it's not a genuine galaxy s but a replica.
there is a shortage of amoleds from samsung. heard there is a new plant being built exactly for amoled manufacturing for samsung.
Why no flash (camera)? If I'm spending all that money for a phone it should have flash

Arun_bangalore, 02 Jan 2011They are stopping it coz, they are planning to get nexus S in! Because it wud be hard time for... moreYes you are right about Nexus S lacking a few features, but you missed out on one of the plus points of Nexus S, for people like us who visit forums and sites to know all about phones it is important for us that we should be able to mod and upgrade our phones, what most people fail to find out about Galaxy S is that until samsung does not launch an official update of their android (eg. android 2.2 to 2.3) you cannot upgrade your phones, this means that honeycomb(Android 3.0) may not be availible to Galaxy S users in march, but Nexus S is a Google phone, it'll be one of the first to get the honeycomb upgrade (the first will be motorola's droid). I would go for Nexus S because I will be updated with the latest versions of android, as for radio and tv output, I dont use those features much cos i carry all my music with me and having a 4 inch screen to watch videos n pics is more than enough for me.

I was waiting s... moreI would say a suitable replacement is sonu ericsson x10(8mp camera) or htc(8mp camera) hd2 all have android os and have 4 inch screens or you can wait for the rumoured samsung i9010 s up to you....
On the back cover of the Galaxy S, Anybody knows the difference between the version with the Android logo and the one with the Google word as a text (with Google)???
P.S: I live in Egypt (Middle East & Africa)
Im in UK currently, I tot I will buy one when I get back to India in Jan end! Thats coz, UK has 8gb model unlike 16gb which is available in India. Unfortunately they have already stopped it! Even in UK, they are on clearance sale list! so im planning to get an unlocked phone in UK itself. Im not buying Nexus S!
They are stopping it coz, they are planning to get nexus S in! Because it wud be hard time for them to sell nexus S when galaxy S is still on. So I think they have decided to turn off Galaxy S and get Nexus S in. So if you are a SGS fan and you still havnt got one, jus go hunt for the remaining and grab one soon!
These are the things Nexus S lacks compared to SGS:
No Expandable memory (16GB might be sufficient for most, not me!)
No TV output! (One of the reasons I luv SGS for)
Older Version of Bluetooth! v2.1
and hell! thers no radio in it!
So all it has got is:
NFC(Which is not of much use in India yet)
Gaurav Mirchandani, 02 Jan 2011I think you shoud get your facts right, I have confirmed from 3 cities, Chennai, Mumbai and Ah... moreYes you are right. There is no Samsung Galaxy S (I9000)available in India. Not even in Samsung stores of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai or Kolkata and very much confirmed. Fone arena and GSM arena are still giving false statements. All fake. huh..
