hti, 18 Jul 2010Had mine for a week. Expectations were sky high after the review by GSM Arena. I'm liking the ... moreIt takes at least 5 FULL charging cycles (you have to wait until the message is showing 'low battery') before the battery gets it's full capacity!
This is well known for every new Li-Ion battery.
Don't unplug the battery/phone if you see a full 'battery icon'. Wait for approx. a nother 30 mins. because if the icon shows 'FULL', the battery is only charged for 90% or so.
This should be fixed in an fw-update ;-)
About the back-cover;
What do you do with the phone to make the back crack?
Mine is fixed solid to the phone and very tight without any sound of cracks what so ever!
The reason for the thin back-cover is clear:
You don't want to have an antenna problem like Apple do you?
So if the back-cover is made out of metal or thick plastic, the antenna has to be more powerful to get the radiation through the material (if it gets through) which will reflect in the battery stand-by time because that would cost more energy ;-)
That is why the antenna from the SE Experia 1 is placed around the flash.
The back cover of the SEX1 is made out of metal...
I'm very demanding as a user, just returned iphone 4 due to problems with hanging up on calls maybe att or phone can't say.
I need speed and reliability and demand only perfection.the galaxy is meeting my high standards so far.
Unlike iphone it has speech prompting-great for driving.no extra charges for voice navigation. Lag on anything.finally a processor that can equal the needs of a smart phone.
As of today this is the king of smartphones!
Extremely fast phone, connection is fast but also phone doesn't
Galaxy is vary nice phone becoz its vary fast.

maniak, 17 Jul 2010do samsung galaxy s have a tv out???? yap..check in settings.thanks
Had mine for a week. Expectations were sky high after the review by GSM Arena. I'm liking the phone but not blown away. I appreciate all the good stuff others have talked about, but here are some gripes. Battery life is awful. Fully charged battery dropped to 50% in 10 hours of almost no use (wifi, bluetooth off, no calls). A full charge last less than a day with normal use. How can I keep a phone that will run out before I get home again? I hope its a defective battery. Second, the much discussed problems with Kies and general transferring files into phone. I think one of the solutions suggested works, but havent tried using it again. Third, the plastic back cover with the 5 cent feel. It creaks. I can live with the 2nd and 3rd issues, but the battery is another matter...
Hey galaxy users, i just wanna ask that does it have usb on the go support..
Samsung's high end Galaxy S smartphone is set to get an update that will bring with it version 2.2 of the Android platform, the company has confirmed.
Galaxy S phones will come with Android 2.1 and be upgradeable to Android 2.2 which will support Adobe Flash 10.1," said Samsung via its Twitter account.
It is clear that Samsung, like Google, is pushing the fact that Android 2.2 offers native support for Flash whilst Apple has completely booted the platform from its new iPhone software.
Samsung will have to take time and make sure that its TouchWiz interface, which sits on top of the standard Android offering, is fully compatible with version 2.2 of the platform before it launches the Galaxy S update.
Available now, the handset teams great built-in Google apps as well as the chance to download thousands more from the Android Market.
The phone is also home to a five megapixel camera, an expansive touchscreen, a media player and video editing software.

Great News for all of us. Android 2.2(Froyo) udape for I9000 Galaxy S in AUGUST 2010.
Samsung has finally put a date to Galaxy S’ Android 2.2 Froyo update. However, before you get excited let me tell you that this piece of info relates to the Korean version of Galaxy S (M110S) and not the International or US variants.
Anyways, a Samsung official has confirmed that Galaxy S’ Android update should take place sometime in early August and all the UI features like TouchWiz 3.0, Social Hub etc. will be integrated in the next update.
As I said, this does not reflect other Galaxy S’ update status but we can expect Samsung to make international consumers happy as well.
The update will be available via KIES.
