This phone also has an excellent music player that is easy to use and has a good video player. Overall, this phone is excellent, but it still does have its faults as a result of Android 1.5. You can get a custom ROMs in many different places. If you update to 1.6, you will be very happy with this phone.

Phone is quite nice- fast, good looking Android, nice gps, divx support.
Looking forward to Android 2- theres no official version for Samsung, but Htc Hero is also still running on old 1.5... we just had to wait.

They should have kept that ambitious name for something more special indeed.

  • Serge

Yet another Google phone with poor design...

  • James

It's December and still no Android 1.6 or 2.0 for this phone. In fact Samsung has not even said if they are working on it. The PC software is still completely broken. Stay away.

I dont think that it has an awfull design.As for me I like it!

  • Praveen

So ugly-looking phone. And the design is taken from 2005 models. Very bad product from Samsung. Perhaps they thought Android lovers give a damn about the style / design.

I just bought this Samsung phone for my own use on T-Mobile in the US. I love the phone and it works on T-Mobile 3G, but there is no Android Market installed on the device, can someone tell me why?

Thanks for putting the audio quality tests up. Very much appreciated indeed.

Android still new and limited.

Wait for Android 2.0 to see what enhancement will add on.

Android just wont work on nokia's, they have the biggest brand, but doesnt mean anything these days, I used this phone and other android phones, and I Was mega impressed with it, if I wasnt in contract already and work for vodafone and get an amazing staff tariff I would get it for sure, good job on this samsung!!!!

  • Greenery

I wanted to know if the Android OS can be updated to a new version via internet downloads and not firmware update. Is that possible? Cos I don't like the idea of flashing phone to update its OS as it is very tedious job for me.
