I do not think that we are smarter here in Greece...so if your KIES doesn't work correct, if you cannot setup correct the behavior of the e-mail app and other issues that I read and DO NOT apply to me...then you should really check what is wrong with your phone or system!
You cannot come here and write whatever you want! there are people that try to make an opinion out of these posts and you write things that do not exist just because you DO NOT KNOW how to work on them!! I do not say that SGS is perfect, needs improving, Samsung technicians here in Greece are crap...they do not know basics...but the phone is very good in general!
NOTE THAT THIS IS A SGS BLOG IN ORDER FOR PEOPLE TO DISCUSS ABOUT SGS AND NOT TO COMPARE WITH OTHER BLOODY PHONES!!! MAKE YOUR COMPARISONS, GO BUY THE PHONE YOU LIKE AND LEAVE US ALONE!!! HERE WE NEED TO DISCUSS ABOUT SGS, GO FIND FORUM TOPICS ABOUT COMPARISONS, NOT HERE PLEASE!!

[deleted post]Like I had said before previously for many times. You and I are geeks who understands these spec sheets and reviews, but majority of the other consumers are not! They are just casual users who do not understand technical terms. So, they will not understand the spec sheet, thus coming here to ask for recommendations. Don't you see people coming and ask which phone is better? That is because they do not understand the spec sheet and review.

I even scolded him for bashing about the phone. He is a SGS hater, I am not. I am just a SGS fans hater if you like it this way. I dislike the arrogance and dishonesty of SGS fans.
for hd video visit 'torrentz' website,and search for 720p video.download it to pc and load directly to your sgs.it works like a charm.
my bro.bought new galaxy s on dealer price..,,vry nice phone.,,i hv samsung wave..,galaxy s is far far away from wave...
After a month use i am satisfied with Galaxy S. The screen is good and battery life is also good. With heavy usage it lasts for 1 day and with normal use it lasts for 2 days. No 3g will take it to 3 days stand. Maps eats battery life like anything. Bundled headphone is not so great i have moved to a Sony Xtra Bass headphone.Sometimes the response lags. Camera is great in bright light. It is better in night with some external lightings. I am happy with the touch. Installed lots of app. Talking tom attracts everyone from all age group. I have updated the Android 2.1 to the latest firmware through kies. For me Kies didnt gave any problem. Initially it gave some pblm in detecing device. I restarted my phone then kies is able to detect. Now no restart needed and no pblm while connecting to Kies. I looked for downloading some nice HD video clip. But couldnt find a perfect full screen video. If anyone has pls share some links.
kamboj, 07 Sep 2010hello buddy,
i agree with ur comments on galaxy s...kies software is really pathetic....very ... moreSome nice SGS detaile for those who not convinced about its crappy design.
Yeah, all the people who use smart phobes mostly for entertainment nay get well with this model.
1. create POP account, get all the emails downloaded from web server. See what happened next: try to select all emails - cant,
try to set setting "Check email frequency" - Never. Do you think it works? Nop. Every time you go to email box all the mail will be automaticaly loaded in, you cant even stop it. In my case i do get spams very often and I did not want to get the crap coming inot my phone that whty i set Never. Anyway it was the test account I linked to.
Try to delete account -cant. For me in order to clean my private data (emails and seetings) I had to resort to factory reset. I did not want to select emails one by one (120 emails) a no option to select all. i already mentioned about privacy issue associated with google email account you must have for some functions to work on the phone. Google will get permission to sync with the phone and you will never know about it. In the end it is Google/Samsung phone.
2. Kies = Lies, doesnt boot (even latest version), fail the XP, crashed when searched folders in microsd card. Paying premium for R&D prototype - sorry cant afford.
3. Still after week of waiting I did not get a single message from their support on the issues listed, I was very positive back then with a lot of hope. Syamsunis are hiding heads in the sand by not helping and still trying to get crap to many naive buyers.
I wont make any other comments on that SGS with nice look but no guts. You can compare it to other phones and say it is better, consider value for money then and the fact that you are on the hook with google.
Multi touch the galaxy s versus the desire and guess what the Galaxy wins again.
slow slow nexus one and htc desire only 26.5 fps compared to the 55.7fps on the galaxy. The galaxy s wins again.
This TC and hi all guys are the siblings of the greatest moron on the forum, the samsung galaxy trash..
I think he has changed his name to this TC and hi all..
Just ignore them....
Arguing with a mad is not the identity of a gentleman.
Enjoy the piece of technology supplied by SAMSUNG.
[deleted post]You prove my point, Samsung fans are NOT friendly or even nice and they are very sencitive to critisicm and when they have no argument they, you, call disappointed customers like me for idiots.
Galaxy S is more expensive than Desire so costumers should not have to expect all the problems with Galaxy S and the phone should atleast live up to its specs with stereo FM-radio and a functional gps and the pc-software that Galaxy S i designed for should in turn be designed for Galaxy S. Ok, most of the problems will hopefully be fixed with Froyo, but Samsung should not have started selling this phone before they had fixed all its technical and software problems. The big problem with Galaxy S is NOT the missing flash, I changed to Desire because of all the other problems with Galaxy S.
Desire has no problems and fullfills all its specs fully, and it has none of all the "lags" that Galaxy S has and that only can be fixed by the costomer by installing "lagfix", a expensive phone like Galaxy S with all its impressive hardware specs should not have this much lag.
The problem here is someone has an issue they can't be bothered to sort out so they come on here and say don't buy the galaxy email don't work or it lags or the battery is bad or other problems that can be fixed the only thing that can't be sorted yet is the kies software.

[deleted post]kies is samsung's program where you can manage your phone better, it is like itunes but you are not totally dependent on kies because you can still transfer files to your micro sd card even without kies, just set usb as mass storage. in kies, you can manage your music, photos, videos, messages, contacts, etc...
