Out of the box a few months ago Sim Free on T-Mobile I thought the phone was good, but a little slow, and was on occasions very unresponsive.
Then I updated to the latest firmware, and WOW the speed increase is amazing. Boots up in no time, and is lightning quick at responding and loading apps.
My only small gripe is that one or two of the apps, appear to be not be working correctly, but this is no major problem.
Hi SGS users,
I hav been trying to update my SGS to foryo thu kies. when the kies downloads the binary files and then the updates begins(SGS switches off)a messages displays that "usb has malfunctioned, can't recognizes...it had happened thrice"
Got the Samsung Galaxy S on the 4 Oct 2010.It was running on the Android 2.1(Eclair).It was very stable and fast OS.The RAM was 324MB.Then i updated it to Android 2.2(Froyo)at the beginning of December.The RAM was 304MB.It had lots of lagging and phone slowed down with the addition of programs.WIFI was also a problem on and off.Today 28 Dec 2010 i updated to Android 2.2.1 by Samsung Kies(version 18.104.22.16803_102).The RAM is 339MB.I bought the phone from England and i am using it in Shanghai,China.Well nearly a whole day using Android 2.2.1 have to say it became sightly faster than Android 2.1 the phone has no lagging.I got 6 new updates from Samsung Apps with the update.Till now its good.I will give additional information concerning Android 2.2.1 around two weeks from now after testing it fully.But for now it seems the update is better than 2.2 release.And if you update you don't need to backup all your data as all is kept on it.
How can I upgrade my firmware to FROYO 2.2?
I tried everything. I watched several videos, read several articles on it but still cant seem to update the damn firmware *****
I connect my phone to Kies, it tells me that update is available so i hit next, follow all the steps correctly. The update properly downloads and it begins to install, just when it is about to finish... *ERROR*
'update failed, please try again'
Now i have tried and tried but everytime the same damn ERROR!
I NEED TO UPDATE TO FROYO! PLEASE HELPPPP!!

reza, 28 Dec 2010Hi all,
Does anyone noticed how long the battery works under normal work load? mine works abo... moreReza
That should be the normal life for it. You can't expect a Super Amoled phone to last a week, can you?
Even if you don't do anything to your phone, it will consume, base on the other site i've read, 24% per day. Meaning, 1% per hour. So I think yours is doing pretty good. Mine also like yours.
Does anyone noticed how long the battery works under normal work load? mine works about 48 hours. but without watching any video or using gps, wifi! Is it a bit unusual? it must work longer as told in specifications
amir, 27 Dec 2010hi tommy....pls tell me which network u r in uk and i m also from london,just tell me u update... moreHI, I'm on orange but my galaxy is sim free. I updated using the official Kies software. 2.2.1 is by far the best, its much more responsive and adds the option to do future updates over the air rather than using Kies.
I got galaxy for present and all I can say is than is awesome! Since I've putted version 2.2 it got even better. Lots of stuff to put into, great camera 720p, great screen, fast procesor, google gadgets. I'm not some "mobile phone freak" and I've seen Iphone and all I can say in Iphone vs Galaxy is that Iphone is overpriced
Hi to all..im from the philippines,really enjoyed my sgs..plss som1 tell wat is the kernel vers or the baseband vrsion after upgrading to 2.2.1 via kies...make sure they will put the right 1 for me...TIA...!!! Godspeed....!!!!!
liffy, 27 Dec 2010can someone please tell me how to turn the interent off on my galaxy s as i am afraid of it us... moremenu--mobile networks--use data packet data is one way hopefully or go further down to Access point names and make up a fake account with wrong info..As it trys to connect it cant because APN is wrong..
I have never heard of this with Android as its designed to be always on connected to gmail/tweets/etc..
I suppose you just want to use wifi only which is fair enuf,,do not have good web plans where you live?
One last point is you will be unable to send mms messages if you cripple data network..

I'm in the UK just installed official Froyo 2.2.1 through Kies. It's by far the official firmware available. Much more smoother and faster, Samsung done good!
Had this phone. It is an attempt to be all things to all men, which it does do, badly.
Get an iPhone 4 and stop wasting your time and money. It's cheaper in the long run - and a LOT better.
should have put my name on last posts..
This is not the best fone,i have yet to find that but its the best i think in .
ITs got srs wow hd tech with the best screen on the planet..Its got the fastest proccessor at present,ok, the nokia n900 has been tweeked at 1.2GHz but battery life was 10 minutes!!Its got 1500mA battery bluetooth 3 ,wifi b/g/n and runs froyo.It handles 32GB card and storage for apps blows the desire out of water.HD recording is flawless.
I would vote sammy wave in second place but with flash and REAL send/end buttons its joint first place..
