Paul, 30 Jun 2010Thank you very much for the reply! Very nice idea with the GPS website, i like it! I've rea... more7 hours later, after i wrote my answer that GPS is working fine, I found one problem... it will be probably fixed with firmware update: GPS is sometimes showing wrong data... dunno if its problem of GPS cached positions or AGPS wrong data... but i noticed when using geolocation API of html 5 sometimes simply put your position completely OFF like yday i was driving and suddenly i was in florida :) i started google maps and for 10 sec it showed me i was in florida as well, then when it got gps signal again it repositioned it to malta (right position)... anyhow today i didnt see this problem...
Reinhold, 01 Jul 2010Then which Android phone is the best in your opinion? And it looks like you have the wrong inf... moreThere is no 'Best' in my dictionary for mobile phone. Nowadays a device gets outdated in weeks. And that 'Best' thing depends on person to person, one will say N1 is best while others will say Desire is, like you are saying this one is the best.

I'd love to see Froyo comes out for this one. Yeah, time will tell the story. They also said that they were going to release a firmware update for i8910 back in February...
Does the Asia's version of Galaxy S comes with Gyroscope? Or only the US version have gyroscope?

Saurav, Forget it~ Things get improve at Samsung. Dont give comments to something that you dont own??? For people that have this phone already it is a very good Android phone. And try update yourself with the news, Samsung have offically announced Froyo for the Galaxy S series. Coming within next 2 months. So there you go~ A lie or not time will tell!!!
Can someone comment on the gps-performance? I have been having massive problems with it while driving (car or bus). Will unfortunately have to send it back if the problem persists :(

THIS PHONE ROCKS! only slacking thing is the camera and prone to finger prints on the back. Then again, a phone is a phone, if you want good camera buy a DSLR. Finger print issue can be solve with a casing or invisible shield. cheaper than iphone4 (contract with my carrier) better than Desire. Just waiting for more accessories in the market.
look at this http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/29/samsung-says-all-galaxy-s-phones-will-get-android-2-2/
ALL GALAXY S PHONES WILL GET FROYO 2.2

1. use Android 2.1 and download a flash enabled browser from android market.
2. Install froyo manually. If sure that if the users of the iPhone found a solution to its biggest problem (jailbreak), we can find solutions too.
tim, 28 Jun 2010I haven't yet had hands-on-experience on Galaxy S (ships next week in the country where I live... moreWell, I have a Samsung Galaxy S (8GB, but it's also possible to have it with 16GB, however once Froyo comes up, I will use the external memory more).
What I like:
1. Screen unlock pattern (on a matrix of 3x3 points you can select whatever pattern you want for unlocking the screen, so strangers may have a hard time looking in your phone).
4 Great display.
5 Great camera.
5 The "Layers" application (let's you see in space POI's around you).
7 You can play DivX movies "out of the box" (I like this when I travel).
8 Good battery life (due also to economical proc and display).
From android market:
9 Find my phone app.
No web flash in standard browser (but to be solved with Froyo; also there is a android marked browser who has it).
