I'm bzy browsing through web pages trying to convince myself NOT to buy the SGS.
Do u have one?
Try turning on the USB Debugging in the settings. This is needed to sync the device between your computer and phone in some cases. Also make sure Kies is chosen as an option on the handset.

I currently have a XPERIA X1 and have just a few more questions:
Firstly, I saw in the review af the SGS that there's a app for drawing and sketching. my Q is: Do u draw with your finger, if so, how much detail can the rough sketch have with such blunt fingers?
2nd: u said that for your calender and phonebook 2 sync, you need to connect to the net. Is that everytime or only the first time?
And then, for using the SGS as a modem, do you "connect to it as a modem" or do u use "internet sharing"?
thanx again :-)
Every user has its own taste of technology..
i like smthing that my fnd might nt thnk of much use..bt thats the beauty of the human mind..no two minds are same in this world..if u dnt like the others pnt of view, thats ok..dnt care of that..
BT if smbdy is yelling abt ur handset then never forgt to shw the door to that bastard..;)
i am saying this bcoz i did that to one..;)

But u said ur not considering to make video calls... Or how often we do make video calls... Or how often we use gps... Or listen to radio... When we have music player on phone...
I am using this video calls service...
Its individual choice as u said dear... For u video calling isn't important for others may be some other feature...
Point is stop putting what sgs lags... People know abt Tht.... No offence. ..
If the led flash is that much imp...than samsung wave or samsung beam outperforms htc desire or iphn or any other phn..
n plz dnt compare n8 with sgs..its of different league..sgs is a supersmartphn with sm small hardware lags..so wat every phn has smthng missing..oth the software lags are nt the drawbacks of a phn in 2010..updates of the os covers these time to time..

zoomer , 08 Sep 2010Wrong forum.... But HTC desire don't have secondary cam for video calls... In future u may do ... moreI agree that a secondary camera for video-calls should be considered standard on a high-end top phone like Desire, but I have never used it and do not think I will use it before it is time for an upgrade to a newer phone. Both LED-flash AND secondary camera should be standard on a phone today, just like STEREO FM-radio and a minimum screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels,especially on expensive phones like GAlaxy S IPhone4 Desire and N8. And it is ofcourse a minimum that the software that the phone is designed for in turn is designed for the phone, Kies schould work without problem on any Windows-OS. And gps-should not say "you are here", 500 kilometers from where I really am, if it can not connect to satellites or triangulate my position via gps-network using a-gps. And stereo FM-radio should not be mono only when you listen to it.
Anup, 08 Sep 2010I haven't heard anyone complaining about 3gs without flash as a problem, we are not trying to ... moreI did NOT change to Desire because Galaxy S has no flash, and I can live without a flash, that is why I bought Galaxy S, but since I have made the switch to Desire I have noticed how good a flash really is. Today a single led-flash is considered a minimum on a top expensive phone and it would have been so easy to install one on Galaxy S, even IPhone4 has learned that a flash is standard on a phone today 2010.
Desire is a better alround phone, and having a flash is a part of making it more "alround" so it can be used in almost every situation. To pay for a camera-phone but not being able to use it to take pictures of your friends or of your children at home or on some activity that is not in brightest dayligt is not ok. Cameraphones are not for taking pictures with professional quality, but not having a flash makes the camera in the expensive high-end phone like Galaxy S unusable. Led is not perfect but it atleast makes a picture with more to see than just nothing but a black screen
Again, I did NOT switch to Desire because of the flash, I canged because of all the other problems with Galaxy S.

I just can't believe how the tide just turn in 1 year's time. Everyone was saying how bad iPhone 3gs was without flash, and now we got a bunch of fans saying how useless LED flash is.
In terms of overall camera performance,
Pixon12 > Desire > Galaxy S
Samsung and Galaxy S screwed up on this aspect, so please stop saying how SGS is the best whatsoever. It does well in certain aspects, but it also performs badly in some aspects too. So, phones like N8 still has its edge against SGS.
I just dislike it when fanboys just keep praising how good their phone is, and not being honest with some of its flaws too. This will really influence and mislead consumers. When the phone lacks something, just be frank in this forum and let everyone know, instead of saying "It's useless, we do not need it."
