bladerunner, 24 Jul 2010iphone lookalike aside, this is still a top phone,huge screen, (bigger than iphone), like all ... moreWell I would'nt go as far to say 'scumbag'. That is a little harsh. Depends where go. Carphone staff I've never had problems with. People from phones4u (the ones i've met) are only interested in pushing a contract on you. I asked one "how much for a sim free phone" he said three times "we don't sell those sim free" even though there was a section telling me the sim free price, he would not give in. The following day a different person contradicted what he said.
Intec will chase people half way down the street to get you in the shop. (Well that's my experience anyway).
Hey all, here my first impressions with my SGS:
+ fantastic colorful screen good readable in daylight. Only white is not as white as it could be in general, maybe. also, viewing a blank, white page, i see a very fine, green line along the left side. You can also notice the pixels of the screen if you pay attention, it looks abit raucous at times. But all of the above issues are nothing to worry about really, i think, you get used to it. The screen is otherwise fantastic.
+ very solid device. the only thing that can bother abit about it, is the too solid menu button at the bottom. The sensor keys are responding VERY well and are a pleasure to use, however pushing the solid button is such a difference to them, that it can disturb. however you don't have to use it, you can just hold back and it ll usually do the same thing.
- slows down after some programs are opened. Taskpanel X is a fantastic taskmanager, you need to give a try.
- compass sucks ass so far. This is the really major annoyance with the device for me. it jumps around like crazy, changing directions up to 180° degrees, just by holding the device up or laying it flat. I'm looking for a solution at the web right now.
+ gps seems to work well, will test that better the next days.
so, overall for the start im very happy with the device. There seem's to be a free version of Asphalt 5 with it, btw.

Chala, 23 Jul 2010Hi everybody, I have a problem. On my Galaxy S I cannot register the google account in orde... moreA friend of mine had the same problem. A factory reset resolved the issue. However that was on a HTC Legend.
Infact it's good it looks like iPhone. I would feel at home using it. I've been using iPhone since last 2 years.
In response to the comment by blade runner i am one of those scumbag mobile salesmen, and believe me i know more about any phones than you. In fact ive probably forgot more than you can remember.
iphone lookalike aside, this is still a top phone,huge screen, (bigger than iphone), like all the features.
still unsure about the android OS, all the big ups by many standfast andriod users clearly indicate that its not all that.
that also aside i may well go out and get it this week. fun fun fun.
so long as i can put up with scumbag mobilephone shop salesmen with little knowledge of the product only the contracts they are pushing that week.
Could this handset look any more like an iPhone ???
Get your own identity don't steal it from another!
I have a question for Galaxy S users, can I edit/delete part of the original e-mail before forwarding it? I'm using IPhone 3GS at the moment and I've used BB Bold, HTC HD2 and X10 only with Iphone and windows mobiles you can do that!Even copy/paste will do the trick (like you need to do on the BB). X10 couldn't do it, so I'm wondering is it android or SE?!!! please guys try it before you reply,this feature is realy important for me. I'm a estate agent and sometimes I need to delete my clients' details from the e-mail that I want to forward to another agent!!!
Thanx in advance :)
