just one question regarding wisepilot,
lets say you choose your rout, and then in the middle you want to find the alternative route, I couldn't find any option to do that!! also live traffic doesn't appear in the main navigation screen, you need to choose another option to display it separate!!
overal, I still think is an excellent apps, how is the support like?

What battery life should I get +/-
zo, 25 Oct 2011I stay in the middle east n i have the defect. no its clearly a yellow tint on the left side. ... moreScreenshot won't show the Yellow tint. You have to shoot with Camera. Besides the patch is only visible on Grey background, that also below 25% brightness. Use 'Screen Adjuster' from Market and turn Blue higher, it will make the screen little bit Bluish but the yellow tint would be less visible.
Also keep in mind there is NO perfect display out there.
I promised to do a complete review on this phone yesterday, but im saving it for today so here goes. After heavy use of the handset over the weekend this is what i found:
Camera - Class. No yellow tint. Beatuful colour in the shots, fantastic HD video capability, probably THE best camera i have owned.....and not just on a phone.
Apps - Fast to download and PLENTY of choice. All of them download fast and without any blips. No worms/bugs or anything as i have the Samsung Security App. Brilliant.
Battery - Now, loads have complained about this, but im telling you now, there are NO problems at all. I get a day and a half of HEAVY use ie. App downloading, phone calls, Skype Calls, Texting, gaming and browsing CONSTANTLY.
Design - Beautiful and light. My dad and brother (and mother actually) commented that it was HUGE and didnt like it. We went for a meal and THEY COULD NOT KEEP OFF IT!! They are iPhone 4 users. Enough said.
Call Quality - Do i need to mention it? No problems at all, crystal clear.
Overall this phone gets a 10/10 for me. No blips, faults or anything at all wrong with it. I even watched a few fights over the weekend on www.boxnationtv.co.uk and it streamed FASTER then my actual HP Computer. Wow.
Downside - Keyboard is a little small for a 4.3 inch bad boy. Still, its not a MASSIVE problem.
One word for this phone - CLASS. I guarantee i will be using this for AT LEAST the contract period, and may not even upgrade. Simple as.

itumi, 25 Oct 2011I'm sorry but nowadays almost everywhere you go there are free wifi hot spots including buses.... moreLol... i have free music dl thing. i was just telling abt the online music stream. One more question. do these task killers actually help?? i have one installed n its like it kills apps on screen off but whenever i check my data balance its around half an mb lower. whatsapp fb, antivirus r only few apps tht remain active. rest all r killed. They shudnt take half or one mb of data... Also game hub always remains active even it is forced stopped. any soln

The yellow tint is probably not a real problem because you should not really expect white to be truly "white", it will always be little grey or "yellow" when the display is set to a low brightness.
Is anyone outside India having this yellow-tint-problem, if not then there could be a problem with the phones made for India?
zo, 25 Oct 2011if u dont have a yellow tint doesnt mean others r lying... n a hell lot of ppl are saying that... moreHmmm...
I think by this time, since many are complaining about that issue, Samsung should announce a recall of all the defective units.
What happen to Samsung management?
Hello there Samsung! Anybody home?

Other way just try the Android market, there are lots of apps there that offer free music downloads.
You can also ask Mr. Google, he knows better.

I read that poor or weak signals of the network coverage consumes too much battery power.
itumi, 25 Oct 2011You need to do several cycle of drain the battery to empty and let it charge for eight hours.
... moreThanks itumi, I have done that, not always by choice but becuase the battery runs flat by end of day, i then leave on overnight but no better.
Use moderate internet too, some WiFi, no music or streaming
