This model of Samsung really got so much problem. It's very slow and always hanging since new and once it hangs, if it does restart itself, I need to pull the battery just to be back on normal again. It's performance is very poor and laggy most if the times. After updating to Gingerbread, it gets worse than better. Like when receiving SMS, it does not store the messages in the inbox and messages can only be read in the notification board. Once I click on that message, there's no message to read and when I go back to notification board, it's gone. So, only partial message I can read in that sense and I don't know if I'am the only experiencing this after the update.
There is also problem with playing videos after the update, it cannot play HD videos smoothly unlike before. The screen stays On if lets say I'm charging it and starts to notify that it is already fully charged. Also, when notifying me for something, screen doesn't turns off. There is also an issue with GPS connectivity, very poor and always losing the signal even on open space or with no obstructions. Same goes for internet connectivity, very slow, weak and sometimes losing connectivity. With all these problems, my next phone will not be Samsung for sure.

I want to update this model of android in my cell phone IMEI no. 359374041289410
Srinvasan, 30 May 2014Mobile was purchased in Chennai. When I have stayed in London, when I am downloading the app... moreI was using samsung phone since 2004, but now i feel it is wastage of money buying samsung phone. Everytime they would come with new phone and after sometime the price drops. I had SAmsung I9003 Galaxy S. Initially the phone was hanging. I nuse to remove battery everytime to restart the phone. For the past 6 months, the phone restart itselfs. Yesterday I went to Samsung service centre, they are asking to change motherboard and it would cost Rs. 6500 and there is no gurantee, if the phone would work or not. If i resell i would not get the price also. Gave the phone to my kid for playing. Request you to thinkl before you purchase samsung smartphones.

vikas pandey, 15 Apr 2014ridiculous and horrible phone, dont ever purchase . i have tried it for one year after six mon... moreI face the same problem. I would not recommend to anyone for samsung mobile.

Mobile was purchased in Chennai. When I have stayed
in London, when I am downloading the apps it stated
problem. I have to charge offen. After six months
when we went to U S, again when we are downloading the
apps it started giving broblem and not at all working.
Always it shows samsung logo. Last month when I came to
Chennai, I visited the samsung and they have informed us
that the motherboard was corrupted and you have to change the same for which Rs.6500 we will charge.
After that also there is no gurantee it will work.
I feel Samsung people always ask the customer to
chenage the motherboard. And I have not decided
to spend for the motherboard. My Nokia mobile is
much better then this model.

My father bought this phone a year ago and I must say.. the performance is POW! but the battery is bleak! I cannot pass a day without charging it! The screen is awesome.. the camera is awesome.. the video is a bit blurry but you can get used to it.. and the battery is bleak! the only thing i hate about this phone is the heat problems! I am checking my email for 30 minutes but my phone eventually heated up like oven! But overall I like this phone and I recommend it to people who uses CAMERA only!
