This seems much better than Nokia N8. Why people are more interested in that? Seems GSMArena is dominated by Asian countries,

I don't know which part of the globe you are from, but being an HTC user for nearly 4 years now, I can tell you one thing: If you live in India, watch out for HTC after-sales service. They are awful! I had an HTC touch which kept switchin off by itself. I visited the service centre (the only one in my metropolitan city) and they -- in front of me -- 'reset' the device and gave it back saying, "It will be alright now".. Ridiculously laughing, I then asked them to check it properly.. They told me that they would reinstall the OS and they asked me to come in a day's time; I did. A day later, my mobile started acting funny. Phone still kept switching off by itself. I took it back to the service centre stating that I am experiencing the same problem despite an alleged "OS Reinstallation".. Without even examining the phone he took the phone in his hand and told "PCB gone.. It will cost 80% of the phone cost (which abt a year back was close to 10k)." Mind you -- I was able to locate the virus on my mobile phone and I was able to delete it but still they claim that the PCB's conked. Funny, eh? HTC makes good phones-- no doubt. But, after-sales service is a little something to look out for especially if you live in India. IMHO, Samsung service is more geographically spread than compared to HTC's. If after-sales service is not something that bothers you, go for Desire; Else, I would strongly recommend SGS! It's a beauty!
jayesh, 08 Sep 2010hi guys ,
my galaxy s is not working with kies software.Its shows keep on connecting.
Please... moreI have win7 ultimate. 1st I start the KIES from PC and then connect the phone through USB. Then it connects correctly.
Also notice that if you want to synchronize your Outlook contacts with the phoe, you will have to run both programs as "administrator". For the KIES you can do it by right click, etc. For Outlook in WIN7 you have to press SHIFT plus Right vlick in order to get the option "run as administrator"!!

I'm just trying to tell galaxy that there is no perfect phone, not even his dear SGS. Qhe is just overly attached to his phone that he can't even tell right from wrong. If he insist HIS galaxy is perfect, so be it. Let him live in his own world of perfection. My point here is just to correct some extreme comments made by fanboys or haters, so that they will not make overly positive or negative comments that will mislead other consumers.

It was not the flash that made me change to Desire, but the flash was a added bonus with the Desire compared to my Galaxy S and I have realised how useful a flash really is, so if I would by a new phone today I would not buy Galaxy S, but back when I did buy it I did not know what I know today.
how can i upgrade my galaxy s to froyo.........

Please give a solution for this...........

Desire can play any game that Galaxy S can, and I agree that there will be improvments in the market so that more apps can be installed on the extrenal sd-card so then Galaxy S do not need all its built in memory, so time will make me able to install all the apps anyone needs/wants but no amount of time can install a flash on Galaxy S or make it easier and more comfortable for onehand use.
Geeks often talk about all the many apps they have installed but very few actually use all their installed apps and games, they only use them to show that their phone is better than all the rest, just lika IPhone4 users always talk about how many apps there is in their AppStore even though they never use or really need that many.
I have used my Desire for more than a week and I have not had any problem with it, and the built in memory is more than enough for my everyday-needs, and nothing forces me to install anything more from android market.
hi all, 08 Sep 2010Wow! You managed to install a xenon flash and a 14mp camera in your SGS? Congratulation then. ... morek if u say galaxy is not perfect then tell me which phone is perfect.... none if cam is ur problem then don buy it....u might know that there was no led before buying it rite ? if cam was important then y did u buy that ?

now i installed num of games like hawx,nova ,shift, fifa real football, avatar, sandstrom, gangstar, winds of steel , quak 3, fishing 2 ,tennis, cricket,welcome to hell, heavy gunner, toon warz , mystique, home runner, tux rider, speed forge, sky siege and lots more than 100 games and lots of apps but still it has 1.4 gb remaining but can u say u can do all this in desire...... even if u install one game nfs shift it says less memory..... which is 100mb game.....c is u wan perfect device in all u wont find anything in this world sure.... even we r not perfect in all.....
galaxy, 08 Sep 2010My galaxy is perfect thankyou. If yours isn't then sell it.Wow! You managed to install a xenon flash and a 14mp camera in your SGS? Congratulation then. If not, you have wrong definition of perfect. If so, don't mislead other readers to think that SGS is perfect.

I am not "a fan", I am just a disappointed customer. I still like Galaxy S, but without Froyo it does not live up to the expectations that the teoretical specs fooled me the expect. I read online-forums, like this, and everybody was so pleased with the phone so I desided to buy it. I had a really hard time deciding between Galaxy S and Desire. The only problem with Desire is its built in memory, that is why i bought Galaxy S, but when it disappointed me I bought Desire and I have found that although it only have 137 mb avalible to install apps, it was just enough for my everyday-needs. I installed Mobisystems Officesuite and Handycalc and CoPilot and Winds of Steel and Google Translate and Voice Recorder and Raging Thunder 2 and Robo Defense and White Noise and Spb TV and GPS Status and Periodic Table and Compass and AndroZip and LastFM and I updated Google Maps, but I still have 56.33 mb avalible of the 137 mb. I did not know that I nedded so little memory to install all these programs.
galaxy, 08 Sep 2010If you really needed a flash then why the galaxy s why buy something then moan about it. You do not use the camera on the phone, that's your problem. We are not interested because that is just all about you.
TC is just telling the rest how lacking a flash affects him and his experience with this phone. He is just stating down his truthful experience. I don't think you should bash him up for stating what he truly feels, that may help others decide if they should buy the phone or not.
Your comment, on the other hand, is misleading. Obviously SGS is not a PERFECT phone like you say. It does its jobs well, but its far from perfect. It doesn't have flash, that is already a flaw. Perfect? Not really.
TC, 08 Sep 2010I do not need professional quality on my pictures, I just want to take pictures of my friends ... morek other than led wat makes u special in desire than htc....
great display than desire
great gpu than desire
great cpu performance than desire
weights less than desire
even great music than desire
only problem with kies and gps which is already fixed in froyo jpc rom so update will make the clean swipe of those problems..... so for simple led function u cant miss such a great features of this phone....

Most of us don not want professional quality, it is a PHONE not a camera, but without a flash its almost useless indoors in the evening and I do not want to ask if I can turn on more light in the bar/... just so that I can take a picture of my friends. A led-flash would have been so easy to add on Galaxy S and then Samsung fans would not have to have this discussion at all.
galaxy , 08 Sep 2010Sell it then and stop moaning about it if your desire was so good why did you buy the galaxy.I bought Desire because Galaxy S did not live up to its teoretical specs.
A this expensive phone should not have all these basic problems that Galaxy S does, not now 2010. Kies is the specially made software that I am supposed to use when I connect Galaxy S to my computer so it should work with no problems at all.
