Galaxy S performance and Flipkart service review

Torn between the HTC Desire and the Galaxy S, I finally ordered the Samsung Galaxy S through Flipkart a while ago and I must say I am very impressed with both the performance of the phone and Flipkart's prompt service.nnI ordered the phone on a Friday night and I was able to pick it up from their Bangalore warehouse the very next evening! It came in very nicely packaged and the customer service was very helpful. They even gave me directions on my way to their warehouse!nnComing to the hardware. This is the 16GB version of the Galaxy S and needless to say, I am very happy about it. It included one headset, charger, USB cable, pouch and Kies installation CDs. The Super AMOLED screen and the 1GHz processor are the absolute highlight of this beast. It has all the usual smart-phone goodies like WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, 5MP camera - the whole shebang.nnAll the software features are pretty much functional. The camera captures pretty good pictures and the HD recording is simply impressive. As is well-known, the GPS is a little buggy in Eclair and the problem got fixed when I switched to Froyo. The Android platform supports most well known media formats out of the box and there are plenty of apps in the Android market to play the occasional obscure formats. In addition to the Android market place you can also download apps from the Samsung App store. The phone also comes preloaded with an Office suite and Aldiko book reader. nnA little technical details for the tinkerers. The phone came with Android 2.1(Eclair) - DDJG4 firmware. Though it felt a little laggy at times - especially when using heavy software like Dolphin HD - it is because of the slightly outdated Eclair firmware. I immediately flashed a custom Froyo ROM and applied a few lag-fixes and it was good to go. This phone has the hacker's dream hardware, though I must warn that the 3-button recovery has been disabled by default in the batch of Galaxy S that Flipkart sells. But there is a simple fix for that in the XDA forums. So please get the 3-button recovery working before you decide to root it or flash custom ROMs.nnSome of the downsides of the phone are the lack of an LED flash and a not so impressive battery life. The 1500 mAH battery lasts for 1-1.5 days depending on heavy or moderate usage. nnAll in all, thumbs-up to Flipkart and Samsung. I am very content with my first Android smart-phone and I must say it really is smart!

Stands Out

After months of pondering and coming to terms with the right budget for the phone I was going to buy, there came the "give or take" fantasy which really pushed me towards considering Galaxy S2 over "Galaxy S" but trust me "Galaxy S" has not failed me. nnOn the looks of it, one doesn't need to pay a premium of Rs. 10000 for super amoled Plus when you have super amoled. Secondly the 5 megapixel camera is just as fine unless you are planning to give in your friend, going on and on about his normal phone having a 8 MP camera (trust me!!! it happens)nnAs far as the battery is concerned, if you are one who has been entrusted with a Nokia all-through, you'd have a tough time getting used to it. But after reading through various reviews, and with the rights apps installed in your android, the battery may just prove fine. nnFor the curtains, my phone's display is better than the LCD TV in my house and is as expensive too ;)
