Have used it for 3 months now. Treated it with extreme care, it's quite expensive.
GPS (Maps) is busted. Cannot point my location. Other times it shows England map (I live in Asia).
Right earphone is also busted. No more stereo for me.
Claimed my warranty, they blamed the GSM provider, switched to another, no effect. However, cannot have my unit replaced.
No warranty for earphones or other accessories, no exact replacement available.
Slippery to hold.
Very hot during calls, ears like burned.
No camera flash, pitch black when taking picture outdoor at night.
Accelerometer doesn't work fluently. Sometimes turn, sometimes not. Have to shake several times for it to change orientation.
Browser changes orientation to landscape only after inputting the initial address in portrait.
Video call choppy. Have to sit very still.
DISCLAIMER: Maybe it's just my unit. Regarding warranty, maybe it's just the practice in my country.

When I went to megamall earlier, it was 31,500 pesos (this is probably... moreI got mine for a discounted postpaid price from Globe because I am subscribed to a business account through my company. It think it is about Php32,000 for normal subscribers and I got mine for 27,000 for a year-long contract. Your right, Samsung Mobile techs are averagely inclined technically, which is also ridiculously true with Globe technical support reps/customer service reps. You wanna know why? Because I had a fuckn 1440 hours of data usage in my first phone bill even if I already turned off GPRS usage in my phone and only used wifi. When I let the guy explain, he told me that the phone automatically uses Globe Internet when wifi signal is weak. WTF, what's the use if toggling data usage on and off.
when using a GPRS for a while, it stops working, and i can't make or recieve calls and messages..
updated to 2.2, reset factory settigs, but still the same problem..
what should i do?

I am in a huge dilemma to choose b/n X10 and Galaxy S.. Can somebody help me out in choosing the best!!
My pref are:

I am looking at a IPhone replica which can do all the tasks without stupid restrictions and limitations....
Would highly appreciate your insights and suggestions
