I bought this phone 2 weeks ago after days of reading reviews and comparing between Galaxy I9000 S, Iphone4 and HTC. Galaxy i9000 emerged as the winner. I must say that this is the best smart phone currently available. This website played a mojor role for my decision, thanks all of you for comments, they are very helpful. I highly recoomend this smart phone, you will enjoy every moment of it.....
Iyam, 19 Aug 2010Guys, anyone of you configured this beauty for Exchange activesynchYes I have
I am using Galaxy S since 10 days now, it HANGS a lot. It takes more time at hanging rather than working. I have not seen shitty hanger smartphone than this Galaxy S. Battery life too need 2 times recharge a day & thats when mobile is Brand New. Samsung is not good at all good in making mobiles.

phoneaddict, 15 Aug 2010Hi Cloudx (Should use Cloud 9) Don't wait until next year to buy this beautiful fone. By the ... moreNot so true Phoneaddict. Omnia II, iphone 3gs, iphone 3g and other outdated mobile phones are still in the market here in the Philippines.
noodle9, 19 Aug 2010I have this phone and I love it but - and I am probably going to really embarrass myself here ... moreYour pause button will work like closing. Though it will stay in the backgorund. Thats how android mem management works. It will close the apps only when it needs memory and and it kills most rarely used one.
Since music player is runnig in the background u can start frm the last state when u reopen it..
Leave killing the apps to android or else if u r so particular use a task manager
preety much the best handset i have ever had poooos all over iphone
worst phone ever, get an optimus, same thing half the price, or if u insist on spending an outrageous amount of money, get an iPhone 4
1 major question here
DOES SAMSUNG GALAXY AUTOMATICALLY CUT OFF THE POWER AFTER IT SHOWS FULLY CHARGED????
Sony ericsson does it thats y...........
If any1 knows for real pls answer this else dont go on preaching the bads of SGS
semsem, 19 Aug 2010I wonder why samsung removed the LED flash from this mobile and the most of recent mobiles? I... moreDoes LED flash make much difference,I dont think so......... SGS is thin/slim as I think they took away LED flash
This is the best handset I have ever put my hands on!!
Well done Samsung!!
brynn, 19 Aug 2010Thanks for the reply,,what about just strolling into a shop to buy galaxy they dont tell you y... moreHey mate I dont think any shops would tell u about the intrinsic features of it or way to use but they sure would b tellin about the external features+specs. Its ur choice and money to go 4 symmbian or android.....I was supposed to take N8 but the thing is that I waited 2 long and then SGS was released. Nice thing is nokia N8 is only 2 b released by sep so u will hav choice decidin abt android froyo and symbian. But out of curiosity "what will u do if the reviews for N8 are bad or worse"???Hardware specs can always make u awe bt reality comes when its in hands of users.
What do u say mate??
2 b frank I kno a guy working for nokia in finland, he told me he hates android but he told me that N8 is trying hard to reach smartphone areas bt it will take time,he also toldd me that he watched HD movie through N8 in a big tv and it was awesome bt he doesnt kno abt technical areas. I had asked him 2 purchase N8 for me bt the delay has been happening from may. They were gonna release bt then somthin happened that made them change the release date(he didnt tell me y/wat the problm was)...........So if it has any issues wat will u do????
Andy E London, 18 Aug 2010Here is my honest review which I hope helps people who are looking to get a Samsung Galaxy S.
... more3Gs is a gud phone.......thanx 4 detailed review.......
1.The battery life every1 agrees but u must understand 1 thing all SGS users are waiting 4 Froyo +baesband version JG5 which consumes lesser battery.
2.My friends have Nexus One,Desire which is easy 2 hold but still they use silicone casing for better grip.
3.Speed->wait for froyo which will kill all unnecessary tasks running in the background.
4.Kies->I downloaded software from their site and it works fine for me.
5.Before installing Kies I had used it as USB device to copy some songs and a video(for analysis)
6.Camera seemed k.......1 sec diference i didnt notice sorry
7.I have been using swype for past 2 days and I find it really gr8.......
8.Email->Havnt tried replying
Please dont buy android phones again as android doesnt want users who dont have patience.
I am nt striking hard at u bt ur impatience can b sorted out wen u called SWYPE too hard and not good.
Go back 2 3gs and leave this forum again.
I understand u r not a fanboy bt I also understand that u dont take time in understanding things.
Nobody asked u whether to buy the fone or not?y not let them decide
Now 4 my reviews
1.GPS had problem I solved it with help of a youtube video sent by alui
2.Battery s*cks bt waiting for updates
3.Have to kill tasks frequently(waitin for froyo)
5.The games(trap,paper toss,asphalt 5 and abduction)rocks and additive
5.Camera is neat but nt greatest
6.Video clarity awesomeeeeeeeee
7.Speakers K(i dont need loudspeaker)
8.Music clarity great in earphones
9.Live wallpapers are superb
10.Lighttweight jus as I wanted
11.Call reception gud(depends on ur network provider).
I am nt a core hater or lover of anything.I am for the best.
I wasnt happy about samsungs older version as my friend had a C series which was a total failure but SGS is the best option around(I thought) so I tuk it and I am completely satisfied.
