Give how Samsung supported the Galaxy 1, I would rather buy an HTC or give Motorola and Sony Ericsson the benefit of the doubt, that they update their phones at least for one year after the release. Samsung already showed that they don't support their smartphone-users.
#1 my 7500 has android 1.6
#2 my htc magic does not have a working 2.1
#3 my 5700 spica has full working 2.1 for a week - the milestone not.
so i'd go for Galaxy2, if it would be available in time.
Well, it seems like Samsung develops its phones to last 6 months only. So I would not go for this phone. Obvious example is older Galaxy i7500 which is around 6 months on market and stacked with 1.5 version of OS. Company never offered upgrade on 1.6, 2.0 or 2.1. We could say, "bad for business", because users feel betrayed since HTC company is working on upgrade for its Hero phone with similar specifications as Galaxy.
interested with android. don't care the hardware manufacturer. but currently it seems moto's android is more appealing than sam's.
if samsung do as teh specs say the phone work have a check the phone properly and not leave faults out then people wouldnt be so down on them that much
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy No 1 bought a phone touted to be great. What they got was a phone with:
- a poor battery -less than 24 hrs
- a glitchy interface
- non-working pc software
- a company not prepared to support its users
Galaxy 2 could be the best next thing but I still wouldn't touch it given the experience of Galaxy 1 owners.
i would not recommend it.
if samsung is not capable of upgrading galaxy 1 to android 2 then they dont think about support. what if it turns out, that galaxy 2 has some annoyances? custom mods again?
thats what i think while still having galaxy 1
it will look like nexus one because the interface is default for android 2.1.
nalimen, 01 Feb 2010i think it's copy cat from HTC Nexus One.....this phone is very2 nexus like....That is so true!! Just remove the trackball of the Nexus One and it will look EXACTLY like this. Samsung is so lame and pathetic!!
i think it's copy cat from HTC Nexus One.....this phone is very2 nexus like....
BORING... It's just another Android with the same old 5mp camera with no features, same old boring user interface, no HD recording, and the worst is the ugly design from samsung. Although I had that ugly part coming though considering its a samsung. This is BS! Better just get the Nexus One right away rather than waiting for this still rumored and unannounced phone. Or Better yet the X10 coming in less than a month.
ali kazori, 31 Jan 2010another super phone from samsung !Yeah... Another super copycat from samsung.
Who said Samsung Galaxy 2 has no FM, dude its FM with Recording.
what is up with android and no radios? If its going to be a high end then they need to pile in everything
