if someone's hobby is photography then you can't change the fact that N8 IS the recommended smartphone for him/her .
Dont even talk about Nokia and Symbian, its the worst OS ever. Someone mentions that it can open 22 apps. I had Nokia N85 (its faster then N97) with 128 RAM and if i open any app, say fring, I cannot delete a message in my inbox, it says no memory. That is the power of symbian. And u r saying it can open 22 apps? I will be happy if it opens a 2 apps.
BTW Galaxy S is the best fone around and the only drawback is the battery life

And N8 has lacky touch screen and multi-touch is not good as Samsung.
Yes Syambian 3 has a few applications.

Anonymous, 30 Dec 2010My Froyo score is 1750
Yours is 960? you did something wrong.
Did you install Lagfix?My score on 2.2 is 960, sth.
I didn't install and lagfix or root my phone yet. I heard it's harmful to the phone in some way. is it true? How did you guys do it? Please share ok? Even on froyo, still laggy sometimes... =.=

Is the official 2.2.1 released yet?
I mean, I live in Asia and i don't know for sure if it's available or not. How did you do it?
Excellent phone, great specs and a pretty decent camera too....so long as there is plenty of backlighting! Only bad thing is it has a tendancy to freeze every now and then. Overall, still a fantastic product!
I want samsung to bring out official lagfix..They should build it into kies update..If it can be done by outsiders surely samsung can do it..There is always something wrong in smartfones why cant they get it right for crying out loud????
tictoc, 30 Dec 2010Just downloaded a clock app to my phone and it just ate the remaining nine pounds of credit.
... moreI feel your pain and bet you felt sick..I am in uk and pay 7.50 pounds or GBP a month for 500MB data..In the past it used to be 4.30 and a mistake meant all your credit gone,its sickening i know ive done it many times..
Also lost credit joining a game company and it just keeps taking credit saying you have now joined this,,top up again and it says congrats you now joined this and took my credit again.I went to police and they told me to destroy sim..However i was annoyed and went looking for company but it was just an old garage with a lock on it.i hate mobile fones sometimes..:-(((
SamxyS, 30 Dec 2010Finally, do you update to 2.2.1 thru Kies?
The same problem with GPS on 2.2, really can't get... moreYes 2.2.1 via Kies.
I am strictly talking about official releases. Overall phone is more responsive, web browser feels faster. But as I mention, Samsung seems to keep their own RFS file system which really handicapped Android and Galaxy S.
With GPS, it had never worked before. I would get satellite lock very rarely and lose it immediately. With 2.2.1 so far it only struggled to get a lock on the overground train in open air and when stationary. Not sure if this expected with trains or the GPS is still some what sub par.
