just got it today from singtel, so far the experience has been really good, the screen is definitely top notch compared to all other phones right now. its so customisable and smooth, but i had it skinned white :x
I feel very happy abt the GalaxyS 19000 where I was part testing of the phone. It is sure that the phone will hit the market.
how dare they name this phone a "galaxy" after what they did to galaxy i7500! don't buy this if you don't want to have any support and updates whatsoever!

m3keni, 11 Jun 2010Hey man, can you confirm if your phone's RAM is 512mb or just 256mb?
You can check it under... moreI received the call from samsung and the supervisor informed me that he confirmed with his manager and they told him that the RAM is indeed 512mb but he also stated that there is no means to check the actual RAM of the unit.
He added that the information shown under Settings -> Applications -> Running Services is actually the available memory for use of the unit.
Right now my phone shows..
Available: 42MB + 124MB in...
Other: 75MB in 4 services..
I am still confused and I didn't get the confirmation that my Galaxy S indeed have 512mb of RMA onboard.
Any help out there?

Jean, 09 Jun 2010?? How is that? Do you mean that games will work better on qualcomm than ARM?
The SoCs don'... more"?? How is that? Do you mean that games will work better on qualcomm than ARM?" No. Learn to read and comprehend. Where on earth to get that from.
"The SoCs don't have anything to do with gaming characteristics." what?!
You addressed nothing I said. So I will merely repeat again for you.
Android OS has crap game support. Why? There is a huge spectrum of devices. The NDK is crap and still beta. There is yet to be a game that even sweats the ageing Motorola DROIDs powerVR GPU so there won't be a game that can even test the superior powerVR chip inside the hummingbird any time soon,
Also, If anyone bothers to develop high end native games like COD(Iphone) for the Android OS, Then it WILL be optimised for the snapdragon which is in at least 80% of high end Android phones. Nobody is going to go to the effort JUST for the Galaxy S and ageing Droid. They didn't for the Droid when it was new and had considerable market share, so why would they for the galaxy s which will have a smaller market share than the Droid. So snapdragon level gfx at best.
So, the ONLY time you will see the Galaxy S's hummingbird GPU performance is in open source ports of PC games like Quake 3 and Emulators like PSX. Quite a let down really.
Where the Iphone 4G may have an inferior GPU inside its SoC but will certainly see MUCH better games. In fact, I am yet to see anything native to android that tops the 3GS' COD

still not in the market yet (except for Singapore)
wats taking Samsung so long? g... moreyea..and thats exactly why they have had so much success. They announce and deliver. To me, I think that kills the slightest chance of the galaxy S toppling the Iphone.
But I'm def gonna get this phone..it'll be worth the wait. And I'm gonna be pissed if Tmobile releases the phone and cripples ANY capability of this phone. i.e. (video call feature. )
You can't get it in S,pore unless you sign up a plan with Singtel telco which they have exclusive right for the distribution of Samsung galaxy s. Not even the samsumg shop is selling!! Got it
ric, 11 Jun 2010No Led Flash?!? :(We do not need LED Flash. I use my Iphone over 3 years with no flash and had no problem. This phone great. You need flash there are other phone out there like Desire.
