Joshua, 18 May 2011Hello guys.. i just want to say this phone is awesome but i'm still thinking which phone i'... moreHi, just a recommendation. Dont waste time buying S5830. I9003 has bigger phone memory than S5830 and the speed it faster than S5830. I used S5830 for two months and sell it away and right now using I9003. This phone is great. Moreover, the battery life is definitely better than S5830.

SL market price - 19.5k
Glaxy S I900 ebay.in price - 21.9k

SO GOOOOO for the galaxy from ebay.

Samsung_Mobiles Samsung Mobile India by kkj76@ @rupamkhaitan Yes, Gingerbread for Galaxy SL is expected to be released around first or second week of july. Will keep you update.
So, 1 1/2 or 2 more Months wait for Update... Late but good news...
I've been using it for 2weeks. Its pretty good.
1. Price - bought it for 17.9k from letsbuy.com (with RCOMLSB) coupon code (may be expired now)
2. Speed - 1GHz, no lag at all when browsing, playing around, quite zippy
3. Size - Slim and 4 inch screen, very easy to type.
1. DDKB2 firmware which came with phone sucks.. upgrade to XXKB3 (european firmware) which is very good compared to DDKB2
2. rooting, flashing firmware required to get the wonderful experience (quite easy though)
3. GPS didn't work, have used GPS-fix/GPS Aid, FasterFix, etc to get it work.
4. H.264/AVC codec (youtube HD videos) doesn't play
well in this device.
5. Not so great screen compared to I9000
Galaxy S I9000 is available for 21.9k on ebay.in If you are tight on budget < 20k go for this one, else I would suggest I9000. for extra bucks, you will 16Gb memory, amoled screen.
Rahul.K, 19 May 2011can i9003 be rooted with gingerbread for i9000?Plz don't do that.. They are incompatible.. You WILL brick your device..
