I have a Galaxy S and the GPS is completely useless it shows that my position, in maps, is 500 kilometers from where I really am. I can not connect my phone to my PC. Samsungs accuweather/clock-widget shows incorrect time. I hope all problems will be fixed with the Froyo-update, but I do not know how I will be able to update the phone, will it happen automaticly in the background because I have not found any "search for updates"- button.
I am considering buying HTC Desire instead.
[deleted post]You should also consider the idea that maybe the SGS unit that GSM Arena reviewed is a good unit. And maybe the ones you got are the unfortunate rare buggy ones. It may be the case and I believe you can return it to whoever you bought/got it from within certain number of days. Its probably just a factory defective unit that you got. Have it replaced.
You can post ur personal review, but to actually blame other people for your own decision is just uncalled for. What you shd have done is checked atleast 5-10 reviews from different reliable sources before u buy something this expensive. Thats what I'm doing right now before I buy this baby. Its like getting 2nd, 3rd, 4th opinion from different doctors because we must admit there are factors that affects reviews (personal tastes and preferences, good reception in the area, good unit that ur using as opposed to defective ones, proper handling, good knowledge in using the unit, etc.) After considering the reviews, then u add up ur own prefences and what you prioritize (like me for example radios are deal breakers for me but I dont care much for the flash while for other people, they dont even use the radios, and cam flash is big deal for them). So far, most owners of SGS are complaining about the heated battery and GPS.So im trying to check opinions on that one. Otherwise i'm almost set to buying SGS. Most people loved it. So I'm just praying to get a good unit like most people. Try returning yours, hope you got ur unit fixed, replaced or something. Good luck.
This is only the ultimate super phone I have ever used. Thank you R&D team of SAMSUNG.
GPS doesn't work. All over the web you can find people posting a propsed fix/workaround. Except that it didn't work for me, and many others. Bottom line- GPS on this phone is dodgey at best and flat out ships broken at worst.
Great phone- screen, speed, etc.
GPS Broken- FAIL
Mr. Wishing they would fix the craptastic GPS in this phone.
Also like in windows does it have msconfig/manage utility 2 stop the services?
How do i sign out from google?
There are several applications running even when I havn't used or accessed it for a long time. Each time I use taskiller adv and kill it forcfully bt it reappears. What should I do? Mine is firmware JG4.
[deleted post]Did any one put a gun on head to force you get this phone ?
there is nothing do with GSMArena...let say if you married with ur wife and you found that your wife got AIDS, then u go scold ur wife mother ah ? cannot be right ? have to blame urself why u din know with your wife before you marry her lor, same as the phone, you din check through the phone quality then after you purchased it and come to blame ppl...wat a nonsence is that.
