Hi, I've had this phone for a day now, and here is what i think.
I wont go into many details on how good this phone is, everyone knows that, id rather say what problems i had with it, so could offer me a solution. First of all its battery life... I bought the phone, charged it, then used it non stop for ~4-5h (wireless, bluetooth, downloading, music, apps etc., everything on), and it died after 4-5h... I must say i expected more... Will battery life improve after first charge, or is it everything it can do while heavily using?
Second, how to kill apps when exiting them. I have app killer app, but i dont want to use it every time i exit an app, ready anoing and slows handset down.
Speaking of slowing down, its really fast once you start the phone, but when you open more apps, it starts to lag a bit (especially if downloading via wifi or bluetooth, and playing 720p video), killing apps help, but again, i dont want to kill apps everytime i close something.
Finally, dont take me wrong, i love this phone (screen is just gorgeous, fast if not multitasking heavily, HD video recording very good (still images not as good or my hands are shaky:), still waiting for 2.2 update and havent explored android market almost at all yet)
If anyone has the same problems (battery life especially under heavy load), please let me know, so i would know that im not alone:) And could you confirm how much ram have you got? Because on this website it says 512 and i only have 256...
P.S. how to create folders inside meniu? i can create them on the desktop, but not in the meniu

u can download an app killer/task manager from the android market. the one i've tried so far has an auto kill function. it's called Task Manager by apollo software. i don't use it anymore cos i didnt hv many apps on my device.
Actually looks like i had too many apps in background. Works fine now. anyone know how to kill apps instead of minimising?
Donna, 17 Jun 2010Does anyone know if the galaxy s supports SAP? sim access profile i think it is. so it will w... moreYes it does support that profile Donna. Its the first Android phone to provide this functionality.
The phone is smooth etc. doesnt come with much apps. no games as far as i can tell. looks nice yadda yadda and all the rest of it. BUT a major prob!!! the video playback is almost slowmotion! with the sound being out of synch and the vid pauses by itself intermittently!! wth?!?! i might post a sample vid up once i get connected fully.

Anonymous, 16 Jun 2010if cannot update to 2.2 or future os version, & only paid gps is the solution.....i'm not ... moresamsung galaxy S will definitely gets a froyo update..this is told by samsung officials.
Does anyone know if the galaxy s supports SAP? sim access profile i think it is. so it will work in my car.
Hi all. Just been to the O2 shop in edinburgh and picked up the shops june magazine. Looks like they will be stocking the galaxy s. It's TBC and 16gb version.
Well, initial thoughts are that the plastic on the back doesnt instill confidence. It IS light weight but it does feel good in the hands. I'm gonna enjoy playing with it once it's fully charged. Adios
Even after its yesterdays launch in India, the retailers dont have ne clue about when the phone will be available for sale...
which on is better apples or pears ..
you're in galaxy S sectoin - of course you'll hear the galaxy S. we're all android junkies.
but wave is a great phone and the price is a bargain.
