samsung s ucks again
they should hire some ppl from htc to make updates for their sgs
they r ruining a good phone having decent hardware with their crap software
So I was right after all!
The official Froyo is avalible TODAY friday 15!
Unfortunatly it is not the massive speedimprovement that we had hoped for, but it is still the best phone.
Ayush, 15 Oct 2010IS galaxy better than wave except for screen size and os??Not sure on that one I sold my wave cause bada was no good I bought galaxy for same specs but with android and bigger screen so maybe the same if you don't include os and screen.

paul, 15 Oct 2010What your heading says unbiased review of galaxy s so why are you talking about apple iPhone 4. I have written in the middle of the article regarding talk of the town (IPHONE 4 VS SGS). And yeah suggestions are always accepted, if u have a suggestion regarding the title then pls tell.

Unbiased opinion on Samsung Galaxy S.
I have been using galaxy s from past 3 to 4 months, bought it the first day it was launched (India). And I guess india was one of the early country to get the phone. This is my first samsung phone before this phone I was using HTC diamond 2. Was Very happy with htc also, the customer service which htc gives is gr8.
Well I see that there is a lot of debate between two phones SGS and iphone 4 and I guess only these two phones are worthy to be compared to each other. I have never used an Apple phone before and that's because of the limitations in its software (original & not jailbroken ).
Apple products are really expensive compared to products of other companies. But they do give something new and quality also. I have a Mac book Pro, dell, Hp, and lenovo notebook in house and I can see the difference in apple product. Their style of doing things is totally different, and good also.
BUT the way apple handled the anntenagate issue of iphone 4, was totally incorrect and bad on their part.
Back to SGS, the company has done a very good job as far as hardware is concerned. But software wise the phone sometime lags, its not smooth as it should be if we compare it with the specs it has.
Screen is gorgeous 4 inch super amoled, amazing the best screen seen till date. I had seen the screen of iphone 4 (unofficial piece) personally but that was for short time in a shop so couldn't fairly compare. But size wise even 1/2 inch does matter when u compare screen of .
Build Quality of iphone 4 is gr8 it felt like something expensive and fragile in hand. SGS feels a bit plasticky in hand and becomes greasy in hands after sometime but the wait of phone is very light and phone with such big screen is very easy to use in daily life.
Price everyone knows apple is expensive. Here in india unofficial iphone 4 is for 38k and SGS is for 27k for such a difference one can get a good second phone.
Software can only talk for SGS, as I haven't used iphone regularly. everything is Ok except that samsung lags sometimes and I guess there are only two things where apple wins lagginess and app store. Samsung has some really good stuff such as dailybriefing, dairy, aldiko book reader, all share via dlna, some good apps from samsung appstore, and yeah swype messaging, infact i m writing this comment from my galaxy s using swype.
Google gives Sgs live wallpapers, and open platform, ok app store second best after apple's.
Battery wise I would say that sgs is good as it has 1500 mah and works for a day with moderate usage.
Finally I would say that if samsung releases a fix with FROYO, then only a true potential of this device would be felt.
I m myself waiting for Froyo update badly, and if with that the lag issue solves, then this phone is better than iphone 4 (considering the price). And If not then I will shift to iphone 4 and also try that one.

Use jm9 with update.zip lag fix through Mcr scripts. GPS is amazing phone is super fast in fact I can't think of anything bad battery is better than desire too.
Froyo hasnt reached india bt other countries it has reached has any1 tried modifyin the reg..........here is method how to change the reg for offical froyo ':::
so i am in australia and ofcoarse there is no upgrade to froyo.
so ...reg hack... updated via kies and yes am on froyo now!
this is my reg hack
remember..mod ur registry only whilst your device has been detected by kies.
if you need to plug your phone out..u plug it in again and again mod ur registry.
note it took a good 4 to 5 mins for the phone to load...
I was using a HTC desiresince may 10and was very happy with the overall performance, it was blazing fast good features and after the froyo update back in end july it was an even marvellous machine. the things that i didnt like about it was no divx support even though word was that they will add this with froyo update, limited memory and after installing 10-12 apps it was running out of memeory and battery life was terrible.
Come september and i was due an upgrade and the choice was iphone 4 or a galaxy s... after alot of thinking and ahving used android before i settled for the galaxy.... but what a disappointing experience it has been. the phone is slow as hell, sometime while opening apps it laggs for ages and feels like a 50 pound handset, well some might still be faster than this...froyo was promised at the end of september now thats pushed till the end of october. Gps was another nightmare, as i decided to relying on it and it wouldnt just get a fix and i had to manouver my way around by constantly calling people and asking for directions. i like the overall look and feel of the phone, screen is brilliant but samsung seriously needs to fix the lagg and other although minor issues but considering the price and hype and the numbers sold a critical fix or else atleast i wont consider a samsung just by word of mouth
