AnonD-16015, 12 Sep 2011Already 3months, I was not much happy with this I9003... Performance was lag and freeze.. with... moreReboots, lags and freeze happened due to so many program running on the background that we don't see on the display. To check these running applications/programs; click setting--application--manage application--running and then force close the program/application that you don;t need to run at that moment. Hope this will help. Some Android apps or programs always start automatically. Unlike iphone IOS wherein the user has to turn it on manually. That is why iphone users say that their phone runs faster than any other android phone. You just have to control the android os and apps. Some of their apps sometimes turn on every specific time of the day. You just have to understand the android os way. Like my I9003, i can use it for 5-8 days before charging it. On standby, it took me 2 weeks before recharging it. When playing angry birds and hd games (using wifi), It took the most 2 hours before recharging it. So when playing games, suggest to plug the charger but some of other phone functions might not work (design set-up). Hope this would help you. Also, suggest installing anti-virus apps to avoid infection of your phone. There are so many viruses in the android market. Android OS has 50% of the market share and still increasing; Same situation as Windows. Android phones is comparable to Iphones. The only advantage of Iphones over android phones is the numerous apps available on the itunes market. But android phones have wider model selections which could meet the specific customer's requirements. Just remember, there is no smartphone that "has it all". So carefully choose the correct one. I believe I9003 can compete (in performance) even to Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100. Just choose a phone that really meet your daily needs and you will surprised that you can save a lot of money. So determine your daily needs and then choose the appropriate phone for you. Like mine, for minimal telephony and bulk is internet browsing, ebook reading, I use my Galaxy tab 7 P1000. For bulk telephony and minimal other apps use, i use my I9003. For telephony and texting, I just use ordinary "dumb" cellphone.
ok guys for those of u who get 6 hrs or battery back check the apps that u have installed>> those that take more than 1% of ur cpu is a =atleast 5-10 mins of ur battery back up so consider which apps u install i get minimum 12 hrs of backup if i use wifi/games..unistall all the unnecessary progs and i think performance would be awesome..its like ur comp u load too many progs at startup even though u have 4gb ram it tends to work slow hope this helps.its the same in all android phones defy or optimus or any other higher end phone..hope this helps
Already 3months, I was not much happy with this I9003... Performance was lag and freeze.. with some auto reboots sumtimes... Battery drains very fast... Really regret of this, i should've gone for MOTOROLA DEFY or LG OPTIMUS BLACK instead of this samsung crap, I got this I9003 just becoz it is cheaper of two of them but now really regret.. cheap doesn't come good result.. =( *No offence*

GB, 10 Sep 2011hey guyz is the official gingerbread update is out yet?? im planning to buy this phone? i dont... moreI purchased this lovely phone almost 5 months ago and Samsung Service center informed me that GB 2.3.4 will be available last June, then July, then August and now they cannot say when the upgrade will be officially available. Samsung please work doubly hard to have this GB upgrade available. It would be a shame if Sony will upgrade all their phones to Ice Cream Sandwich by q4 of 2011 considering that Samsung is the number 1 seller of cellular phone in the world. A phone is good if your OS is also good.
nick, 10 Sep 2011I9003 is downgraded version f I9000 n coz f that it has sum stupid performance than I9000... W... moreSuggest to reset your phone. Go to setting-privacy-factory data reset. Your phone will go back to its original setting and programs. Carefully reinstall your chosen programs but be sure to install the anti-virus program first to avoid virus infecting your phone. Please note that android OS has 50% share of the phone OS market. With this, lots of geeks are installing/integrating viruses on some of the apps in the market. Virus can ruin/damage your phone and we always tend to blame the hardware/phones. The biggest enemy of the phone is accidentally leaving it on the car's dashboard (exposed to extreme temperature and moisture).
I9003 is downgraded version f I9000 n coz f that it has sum stupid performance than I9000...
