Hi friends...Im planning to buy this phone...but a lil confused to choose between the GALAXY ACE and GALAXY SL...Heard that this runs on the froyo android os...Can this Froyo be upgraded to Gingerbread... ??? Thanks in Advance
sammyUSER, 14 Nov 2011I guess GSM arena should remove Upgradable to Android 2.3 from their OS section for this phone... moreInstall Advance task killer and set Auto kill frequency as "every half hour' . No need to decrease brightness or disable the auto sync. It will increase your battery backup to 1+ day

hi 9003 users,
The battert backup is not bad. Mine is running in friyo. It stands 6hrs talktime/ 4hrs google map/ 5 hrs videos or games / 10 hrs audio songs. The power consumption in standby mode is 1% in 2 hrs . ie. 12-15% per day in standby mode.
Thereis no use in blamming this model without knowing the technics of using android phones.
As an average user (ie. 10-15 calls, an hr browsing, playing songs and movies for an hr per day), the battery lasts easily for two days.
Its one of the best sets in this price range in all aspects except sound quality.
I have been using this set for the last six months and absolutely happy with its performance.

Previously it stayed below under galaxy s i9000 with 850 points . Now after ginger bread update i9003 has 1155 points and stays far above i9000. Which means ginger bread boosted performance buy giving very good support to the hardware.
Please download quadrant standard from market

I upgraded mine day before yesterday. Though no significant improvements in battery life or anything ..just some cosmetic changes made in touchwiz.
I guess GSM arena should remove Upgradable to Android 2.3 from their OS section for this phone. I got this phone after reading that it was upgradable to 2.3 but Samsung so far has not provided any Upgrade to 2.3 and Im not holding my breath for that.
with 2.2 Froyo on board my battery drains within 10-12 hrs without much usage, I am really disappointed with Samsung for this phone and they way I see, they are not going to release any updates for ACE either.
I am an Indian. So all the comments are related to Indian release, I dont know the story else where. Can anyone who has used this particular model about their battery usage etc.
PS: from day one I've kept the phone on 0 brightness, no unecessary services running in background and I am not using EDGE/3G/WiFi(during the 12 hrs of usage). Just calls n Text.
Plz can u help me..
Hw to set memory card as a default memory in phn..

N d second thing..
Where is the update available fo dis phn..hw cn i upgrade it?
Hi Guys this post is for all who are experiencing problem with WiFi after GB Update.
To resolve this WiFi issue, just disable DHCP in your router Settings and assign STATIC IP ADDRESS to your mobile.
If anybody have issues I am ready to help.
Now WiFi issue also fixed guys with Static IP address.

Thanks for sharing your experience with SL I9003.
Just know You have upgrad... moreHi Sudhamana,
After updating to GB,
1) GPS is working fine, previously it use to take atleast 2 minutest for better GPS lock. Now withing seconds...
2) After updating to GB WiFi not working. For every 40-50 seconds, wifi will disconnect.
3) After updating to GB, battery backup looks good only till battery percentage reaches 50%. After that it will drastically discharge. Dont know why...
4) Voice calarity during Call is same upto my knowledge. Lets others tell their experience on this.
Since upgrading to Gingerbread 2.3.5 the phone has become a pain. It resets by itself after few hours and I have lost all my data many times. If Wi-Fi is ON, it resets every one hour and I need to restore my settings, contacts and everything.
I have tried all sorts of tips given on the websites, but the problem still persists. With Froyo the problem of switching off while charging with Wi-Fi on but now its painful.

My phone is working perfect. No problems whatsoever.
Sound is not an ISSUE in this phone.
I have already stated, sound is a bit low but still above average.
Sorry, I have no idea about Galaxy W launch.

Yes definitely this is awesome model, I like this model Samsung (SL) very much bcas of its design, smart look and luxuriousness. Really Neo V is not much attracted with its design (why SE gives us such kind of girlish design?), but phone reviews are good..
The only issue in 9003, loud speaker and call quality volume problem in some users' models.
But I think the difference between Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 and Galaxy W is the battery capacity is much lower in W. I hope other things shall be ok, bcas Galaxy W is newer version with GB and hopefully these kind of hardware issues may be solved.
That is the reason I show keen interest with W. I don't know when Gal W will be available in India (Chennai). Even I know the launch date in India, I can wait for a while.
1. Are this sound issues still existing even newly manufactured SL 9003 models?
2. Can you please tell me from when you are using this 9003?
2. Do you know any info about when Galaxy W will be launched?
My kies says, 'YOUR DEVICE DOES NOT SUPPORT SOFTWARE UPGRADING VIA KIES'. what that? still cannot upgrade. can anyone help me how to upgrade.. i bought mobile from Malaysia n currently i m in India..... Please help me.. thanks.my version 9003DXKB2.
