Yagh, 08 Mar 2011Is the speakerphone good enough for taking calls ?
What kind of usage you have as the battery... more6 hours battery? Are you sure you didn't buy Galaxy Ace instead? lol
My friend's SL gives him around 1.5 days with heavy usage. I didn't check his GPS though... if GPS fix takes 30 minutes thats really a problem!

So it means GPS still remains a problem in galaxy
Hi guys.got this phone on 3rd march for 19.5 k through flip kart.excellent phone.
1.super clear lcd(really good and ln my opinion it's better than samoled)
2.android 2.2, flash 10.1 can play hd vids 720p and record too
3.gorilla glass (i personally confirmed)
4.tv out(again personally confirmed)
6.mobile AP.that's really cool to make your phone a wifi hot spot.
7.swype is cool too:-)and superb touch screen
But after using it for 5 days I found some issues
1.no led flash(but still good picture quality)
2.contacts are jumbled and if rearrange and sync with your account it again gets jumbled as the name in the respective account.it is really annoying
3.if you store two phone numbers to a contact you can't set a default number for messaging.and if you add say 15 contacts with two numbers in a group, then every time you send a message to that group then you have to select each number manually.again annoying.
4.gps fix takes time (30 min).but if you use gps fix application it gets locked within 3 min.
5.cannot play songs online.have to either download or install a third party application
6.poor volume output through loud speaker and volume drops too when connected to external loud speaker.
7.battery lasts for only 6 hours of continuous usage (power usage)
8.just 4gb of memory.now that's really poor.(should have been at least 8 gb.
9.i don't know what samsung apps is for.please help me.when ever I open that it just shows as no new updates.
10.no stock games.i expected some cool games.but:-(
11.some times I find irritated that too many options popping out here and there.
12.in gmail you can just attach photos.if you wanna attach something the option just leads to the gallery.
please correct me if I'm wrong.thank you.
and one more thing, the screen is far better than my friend's HTC Desire HD, not sure about galaxy S amoled, but can vouch for the fact that it is better than the N8 amoled which I checked out at the shop I bought
viraf, 08 Mar 2011hey pls give your experience using this phone in detail. Like its web browser, music, camera, ... moreHi, great phone, me coming from N82. Confirm 100% browser supports flash 10.1. Camera has 4x digital zoom. Phone overall is fast and snappy, not experienced any lags whatsoever until now. Music quality via headphone is great, speakers are not so loud, even lesser than my N82.

AnonD-2899, 07 Mar 2011@raj I was the first few to get my hands onthis device and the first one to review this on gsm... more@raj I was the first few to get my hands onthis device and the first one to review this on gsmarena.I did this to solve people 's queries.I can bet that u haven't used the handset and just copied from somewhere.U did mention that this device has a weaker gpu but didn't mention that it has a faster processor.U just wrote the cons of the handset but no prons.And I should tell u that this device does have a tvout,gorrilla glass and 4x zoom.So my friend only write a review either after using the phone or after getting confirmed info,dont dishearten people by giving wrong info.
SL processor speed is same as S. the official indian samsung web site does not mention tv-out, gorilla glass and 4x zoom.
the below web site mentions that zoom is only 1x.
my point was only that for rs.4k more, S is much better option than SL.
