I have this phone for 15 months. Overall it is quite a good product. What bothers me is poor baterry life, lack of camera flash and I am really annoyed with lagging (I use Gingerbread). I have a lot of files (around 3.7GB out of 5.5GB on phone and around 9GB out of 14.5GB on 16GB microSD) and loading photos can take a while and is slow responsive.
What I want to do is upgrade to Jelly Bean but I never actually rooted the phone. The reason for that is waiting for the stable version of Jelly Bean which I hope can solve the problems I experianced and give better battery life and smoothness they promote with JB. This phone is still very pricy and incredibly popular so the updates are first tested on Glaxy line. I considered changing it but I don't find S3 so revolutionary and I'm waiting for something radical in phone industry instead od just bringing more powerful chipsets and bigger screens.

I bought it from Amazon and it comes with a 1 years guarantee also. It's made by ANKER. It takes 3 and a half hrs to charge and lasts ages.

I want to upgrade it also to 4.xx but I don't know if I will miss any functionality of the phone (ex. bluetooth, WiFi etc). What are your first impressions?
jimmy, 01 Oct 2012I like it galaxy all series specialy i9000 & s2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Am buying my samsung galaxy s2.looking 4wrd 2 enjoy its services. Dr phred
I've been a happy user/owner of a Galasy S i9000 since March 2011.
Even more so after I flashed CyanogenMod 10 on it, late Sempember 2012.
What's most incredible is that Samsung said that this phone could not run 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich nor 4.1 Jelly Bean, and that they would no longer develop nor release new Android OS' for it for this phone is too underpowered, memory and processor wise.
Google Nexus S has the exact same specs and it runs Jelly Bean 4.1 *OFFICIALLY* just fine.
So, clearly, all Samsung wants is your hard earned cash.
Well, if they would get their heads off their butts they would see that they are squarely wrong.
CM10 on Galaxy S i9000 is eons better than Samsung's own crappy Gingerbread 2.3.6 ROMs.
If you own one of these phones look no further. Head over to XDA developers forums and look up CM10 and flash it.
You will thank me later!
mano, 27 Sep 2012can any 1 say plzz about upgarding icsICS up-gradable even JB up-gradable too :P
mano, 27 Sep 2012can any 1 say plzz about upgarding icsYou can do it very easily using CM9, but you'll get similar performance and more features by flashing CM10 and Slimbean.
You need to get root, then install CWM recovery. Then back your stuff up, then put the CM10 zips on your SD, then boot to recovery. Wipe then install the zips. Viola, newness
