ati, 23 Aug 2012Hi All, Please don't buy this phone. It has some serious issue. 1. After making any call... moreIt's pthatic to not get even the call feature right in 20000 INR mobile phone like Galaxy S Advance. Samsung really degraded it's reputation.
Peter, 21 Aug 2012Please tell me why are you think that it have a corning's glass? In the spec. isn't about this. Hi All,
Please don't buy this phone. It has some serious issue.
1. After making any call, phone goes out of service for a some duration and i can't get incomeing/outgoing calls.
2. The people who call me gets "not reachable" message while i m using gprs.
3. Camera also don't have basic feature like zoom.
It seems that they don't do testing even. And they forgot the basic call feature of phone in providing smart features.
@galaxy'S'advance You are right. S adv has poor commercial marketing despite of the performance has quite better than same-range competitor. I used it for 2 months, and very pleased for everyday business-use. fast and no problem at all. dual core 1 Ghz is more than enough for me. samsung has undervalued their own bullet for this case.
When the phone is in idle status for a while and when i unlock the screen it shows lot of call charge notifications and internet charge notifications.
When i unlock my phone in the morning it shows at least 20-30 notifications and when i try to clear the mess the phone hangs...
I've turned off background data,Auto-sync and locations only with the packet data on and still i get lot of notifications until the packet data is turned off
This is the only problem i have and i just want to know is there anyone experiencing similar to this ???
m22, 20 Aug 2012does it play this video sample in stock player? https://rapidshare.com/files/1822600111/720... moreit cant play 1080p videos on hardware mode maybe in software mode. but playing 1080p videos will drain the battery faster than anything else. thats why 1080p video files should not be watched at mobile phones.
gun, 22 Aug 2012so if Samsung themselves said that this phone does NOT have corning gorilla glass than they ar... moregorilla glass can protect the screen from normal wear and tear but it cannot protect the phone-screen from shattering in case the phone drops down. the phone screen is under the protective layer ( whether gorilla glass or scratch resistant glass ). so if you drop down your gorilla glass protected phone the gorilla glass will not break but the screen under it will shatter or break. my friend's gs2 screen got shattered and went completely blank instantly. whatever you do make sure you dont drop down your phone whether it is gorilla protected or scratch resistant protected.
neeta, 22 Aug 2012Is zooming problem completly solved by using FX camera from play store?camera zoom fx can zoom still camera not video camera, i have used it on my s advance. zooming with fx zoom isnt like original zooming. please note that there are two lens in a zooming camera, one zooms and the other one captures the video or image. if you are looking for a phone with zooming camera than look else where. it has auto-focus camera which provides good enough images and video for normal use. but its performance is amazing compared to similarly priced phones. i got 37 fps in nena mark 2 test. in quadrant it comfortably beats htc evo 3d. processor and ram not as same as the s2 but it must have a very good SOC that makes its performance similar to s2. if you want to play heavy 3d games that look out for a phone which has lots of internal memory. eg 16 gb internal as big game files are installed in the internal sd memory and cant be moved to external memory.
can i know if there is any avabality of white color in galaxy s advance... and if no than any chance to be launched in future. if yes than till when...
S advance is a good mid ranger phone by samsung....i compared the screen clarity with iphone4,the S advance have better screen clarity than iphone4 although both the phones have LED display....
the promotion of S advance is really poor...samsung had commercial advertisements for s2,ace and also for galaxy S.....
why some people just comment so negatively samsung galaxy had awesome features i dont know who comment the ripping of mother i think this negative guy didnt buy the samsung galaxy i also believe samsung galaxy is out of his pocket just watching anothers cell dont be jealous,samsung galaxy will be worth more if some applications are included by you by downloading few files under pirates bay.
dude, this is an amazing phone. almost all apps are compatible on this, and the apps i use work fine. and im not talkin about the ones like hyper jump or speed car. im talkin about the apps with awesome graphics and lot of detailed background. like shadowgun and gta3. its great at multitasking as well. my cell never experienced any "sluggish performance" crap. either your peice is broken, or you have commented on wrong phone
