Hi everyone, upgraded myself to this sleek Samsung Galaxy S i9000, after lots of research, it was a tough decision as all the similar latest models had almost similar features, the fast speed 1GB hummingbird processor, good battery life, excellent GPS features & really amazingly clear screen made me decide to select this model over others. Since almost over five weeks of usage no call drops, no phone hangs or freezes, no sync problems, has given me true satisfaction of my wise decision to pick this phone. Wi-Fi & blue tooth usage has much less battery drain compared to its competitors (no names please). Video calling is charm on this phone ‘cos of 1GB processor. Radio usage reception is excellent almost always. With 32GB memory, watched AVATAR in HD on my i9000 and at end of it I used 50% battery – not bad eh! Amazing masterpiece created by Samsung Galaxy S team. Overall performance is excellent for my usage. My advice buy the model which suits your usage habits, this model for sure is way ahead of others per my personal research, usage & satisfaction.
KShitiz, 13 Dec 2010Confused between Samsung I9000 Galaxy S and Sony Erricson X10?????? Please help me??even paying of rs. 1000 is waste of ur money , if u take x10, it is not supporting apps properly, and not having video calling,. so its best to take galaxy s.

but please keep in mind that i was comparing galaxy s with desire hd. and, from this point of view, beside the screen (where i give galaxy a 10 and desire hd a 9), for all the rest of the features the 2 phones are equal at least (in some places desire even in front of galaxy, even if only by little). at least this is my personal feeling. and one more example: i have installed and uninstalled(on both phones) at least one hundred apps. after doing that, galaxy needed a reset, as it had become sluggish (it is not the case yet with desire). it seems that htc managed to do a better integration of android. and i can tell you that i was not a big htc fan (actually more an anti-fan, but they have managed to gain be with this phone). what is the best in all this is the fact that i can see more and more top android phones :)

There's many tutorials on how to do it and it's easy.
Now, there's 2.2.1 update which is better than 2.2.
thats bec the sd card is full and the pc takes too much time reading the content....so just unmount your sd card before connecting to kies...goodluck
KShitiz, 13 Dec 2010Confused between Samsung I9000 Galaxy S and Sony Erricson X10?????? Please help me??Both X10 and Galaxy s is more or less the same but i would suggest u should go with Galaxy coz it has better touch sensitivity and less heavier than x10...
What about moth...f...ing greek froyo 2.2 update?
i m thinking seriously selling this phone and buy iphone 4 because of the delay of froyo for greece.i have been waiting for months....thats enough!!!

Guys Its the ONLY commercially available ANDROID phone,with a SECONDARY VIDEO CALLING CAMERA.NO other wide available android phone has video calling camera!!
KShitiz, 13 Dec 2010Confused between Samsung I9000 Galaxy S and Sony Erricson X10?????? Please help me??You shouldn't be. Before getting my hands on SGS, I've checked X10 and Desire - and SGS won without any doubt. IMO: pick X10 only if You need flash for camera, or pick Desire if You need tougher housing.
is there any way to increase loudspeaker volume of samsung galaxy s just like it was in samsung wave s8500 by pressing *#197328640# ... Im a student and i cant wake up on alarm due to feeble volume.. :(
After upgrade to 2.2 - gps works brilliant and absolutely flawlessly. Does better than nokia 6650, some asus handheld (don't remember which extacly) and some cheap tom-tom device (I've got only theese to compare). Just last weekend made 2x200 km through both cities and some rural areas (south-west Poland) - everywhere signal and tracking was perfect. Checked soft: waze, glympse, google maps, naviexpert.
