    Samsung galaxy S owners...

    What do you think to the phone?

    Ive heard the camera is pretty good?
    Also have any of you moved from iphones?

    I have just sold my iphone so either wanting to buy a iphone 4, blackberry 9700 or i thought the galaxy s.

    Whats the app store like? Isit similar to iphone apps?

    Thanks

    never used an iPhone, but I do like the Galaxy. Battery life isn't great TBH, I struggle to last more than 12 hours with what I would call light usage. Although when on holiday it would last 3-4 days without a charge as it was just left in the hotel room all day. You can get a double capacity battery, but its bigger than the OE one, so makes the phone wider. Not used one, so don't know how much bigger it is.

    Camera is ok for uploading photos to facebook, wouldn't want to do much else with them.

    Have to say though, since updating to Froyo 2.2 the phone seems a bit slower. Especially with selecting and deleting emails. Was quick before, but seems to delay for ages at times.
    Have connected the phone to PC a couple of times since, but there hasn't been any more updates or fixes to download

    Full size photo for your viewing. The camera is quick I find though, not much of a delay between taking a photo and it being ready to take another. Video quality is pretty good

    What do you want? There are loads out there, all I really use ATM is Angry birds, Facebook, Sickipeida + CoPilot. But have loads of others installed.

    Sold my iphone 3gs to get a SGS superb phone.
    I'm on froyo 2.2 now and if you run z4root and one click lag fix (proving the 3 button trick works on yours, there is a way around it if not ) the speed is so fast!!!!

    Buckle they paid for?
    If not i i have astro

    Did you do the reset of the phone, you need to then you get the peformance back.

    That has got to be one of the best quality pics I have seen from a camera phone so far

    video's in hd aswell! its basically an iphone 4 but with a cheaper casing. the app store from android has the majority of apples or some kind of copy! buy doodlejump and get your free copy of co-pilot online the only thing i suffer with is slow emailing, but i'm in an area of poor signal anyway...
