I just got this phone and I am extremely dissapointed about it. The phone itself is excellent but the android OS is the worst os i ever seen. I hate Nokia due to the Symbian OS and I used Windows mobile for years. Even Symbian is better than the Android. If there could have been a way to install windows mobile, I would have been extremey happy, but unfortunately this is impossible. Now after just 1 day I am trying to sell it. firstname.lastname@example.org

luv galaxy s,the live firework wallpaper is so cool and myriad of settings..so far so good,iad it 5 days 320 quid on o2 payg
This phone is so fake.
The only good thing about it is display which ruins the battery so fast.
I had bunch of phones,and even i-phone 2g is far more advanced than this one.
*battery drains so fast even though it's 1500mah
*phone lags,freezes,and it can be so slow,makes you wanna throw it away
*forget about any multitasking and stuff if you have more then 2 programs running,phone freezes right away
*when you receive e-mail,especially e-mail with photos,it takes few minutes for fetching photos,and then it displays
*anytime my wife send me a picture over MMS i can barely recognize what's in it
Let's not even talk about cheap plastic material they used,and how messy phone looks all the time.
This phone is nowhere near to i-phone and it will never be. I can tell you all this because i have both of them.
i wanna know one thing..if i have a 'card reader' then will i have to have 'kies'?how can i update?is it only possible through kies?or software update over the air is possible?
The Galaxy S simply will not connect reliably to a Windws 7 PC - and I am running 32-bit, not 64-bit. Sort it out, Samsung!
[deleted post]go to samsung website and then buy option ..you will find price of galaxy s is Rs 29000.00
Thanks Premasai for your candid opinion. I would love to have other users of this phone comment on Premasai's coment. That would clear the clouds (if there is any.

A pop-up will show and you'll be able to choose SWYPE input ;-)
There is an extensive help menu inside SWYPE so read it carefull !!
About the 5.1 sound:
Yes you only have 5.1 over the headphones.
I think there is a problem with your copy/format of the dvd because I haven't got any issues whith the sound of my films.
You can NOT download an app from the market to your pc and than transfer it to the phone.
Why would you anyway?
It's way more easy to download directly to the phone.
If you are having trouble, like I did, finding a good program to sync files to the Galaxy S. I suggest just using FTP. An easy way to do so is to download SwiFTP from the android market and then download an FTP client to your computer (I use Filezilla). If you do this your phone can act as a server to transfer files to and from your desktop (client) computer. This works great as long as you have a wifi connection.
As i was looking at booklet i looked in box and the 8GB card is a class 6 device,,excellent for use in video recording..
Mitul, 10 Aug 2010Can you please provide Firmware details?Not sure abt the firmware version. When i connect to kies Sg version it says new version firmware available for your phone. I will give u the exact sentence when i connect my phone next time.
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2010Hi,

The video player supports the following file formats,3gp,mp4,avi,wmv,flv,mkc(Codec:MPEG4,H.263,SorensonH.263,H.264.VC-1,DivX/XviD )
