I bought Samsung I9000 Galaxy S recently and I like it so much. I think it is a mixure of Nokia N97 and Iphone. The phone is great to use, download ....etc. However, I have two observations on this phone:
1)The signal strength is weak.
2)The Battery life is short.
Got the phone yesterday, Still very excited. I am new to android but have so far enjoyed the applications.
For people who are thinking about buying the phone and have second thoughts....go for it...
I have used the nexus and the desire - but the screen of this phone is simply amazing.
Very light weight...despite heavy specs.
Samsung apps are too good.
Very user friendly apps.
Super excellent ear phone and music quality.
OS is too good.
there are few downers -
No camera flash - however good camera
Wi-fi, I thought was an issue, but just changed settings works fine..
nice phone...nice price too...and available in india

what is the problem to add 12mgp camera, OS windows 7,TV out, matalic casing,all things together.
A little more hands on with my Galaxy S.
The screen is...well...OK outside on a bright sunny day. Although the best still has to be the Storm 2. Not too bad in the shade though.
Also the full version of Asphalt 5 was free to download on My Galaxy S. I downloaded the trial version for free and then I had a free special update from the samsung apps button, which when I installed gave me the full game + the exclusive Samsung car.

I have used X6 of my friends its touchscreen is not that appealing. Plus the OS is still symbian(outdated).Nokia provides the best Maps and GPS system. It has to be launched to know more about it. Then again Galaxy is Super AMOLED and N8 with AMOLED. Also SWYPE man awesome. Thats y I am asking every Galaxy Users 2 give out their opinions.
To bladerunner i've had people like you come into my shop and ask me about the phones features and the very minute i get something wrong you pounce on it and immediately make every comment under the sun about the ONE THING i did wrong. If you know the phone and like the phone, get the phone, or leave.
I'm a good salesman i don't push anything if i've ever mislead a customer I certainly never meant too and I don't get paid commission and thats how I like it.
[deleted post]If that's the case why not opt for Nexus one or wait patiently for the nokia N8? Both are great alternatives to the Galaxy S. Either way, you won't lose out from choosing either of the 3 phones.
I'm looking at either the Galaxy S or an HTC Desire next month when Bell/Telus releases them. Hopefully both phones will be able to get Android 3.0
I have this phone and Galaxy S is great. I just wonder why Samsung no package this in more expensive nice body than this plastic. If you look at Samsung Galaxy package looks great which they have done Galaxy S for AT&T in same package.
Why not package same the Galaxy S. If Samsung pay attention to packaging they can beat iPhone no problem.

There is a widget you can download, named : battery widget...
On your main screen, you get an icon showing the battery power left, in percentage.
And one can see that the battery discharges at an incredible rate !
It seems that this big screen is extremely voracious in battery power.
If one compares the Galaxy S with an I phone, the latter is heavier and a bit thicker, meaning that it has a bigger battery. Moreover, it is possible to change the I phone standard battery for an even bigger one, that last a very long time.
Let's hope that Samsung is going to offer an accessory like that..."
Is it tru that power drainin is high?
Also heard of GPS lockin problem.Has any1 tried the solution given by changing the settings?Was it effective?
Please do reply
Thanx in Advance
