In India, Samsung is already famous for its colorful touch enabled phones. Mobile phones are increasingly becoming popular. There are many Indian people who are also becoming interested in high end phones. Both these phones have some great features and mobile lovers would surely enjoy them.


  1. Samsung i9000 Galaxy rocks the technology

  2. Sure, you’re excited about the Samsung Galaxy S.



    And imagine 6 months after you bought the Galaxy. You’re angry. You been lied to. The promised updates never come. There are real problems just using the phone. Forums like this fill with users like you, angry, dumping the phone, and comparing how little the can get for it on craigslist. $150? If you’re lucky.

    You’ll never buy a Samsung product again. Samsung has hired a PR firm to try to hide the real problems you and thousands of others are having with the phone.

    This is real.

    Do some research on the Samsung Behold II. This is Samsung’s business model.
    1) Shiny new phone with promised updates
    2) Wait… there’s no money in supporting a phone, only in selling new ones.
    3) Refuse promised updates on under plainly false pretenses.
    4) Go to step 1.
    5) Profit.

    Please, do not buy this or any other Samsung phone. HTC and Apple make nice phones that they support. Tell your friends.

    I’m just a regular guy who fell for their lies. Don’t be me, 6 months from now, in a forum, writing this same message.

  3. Now that was one of the most lucid complaints I've ever read. Good job

  4. I bought one.

    The GPS and compass don't work. And the audio/video is way out of sync.

    Check the forums.

    The really frustrating thing is that Samsung refuse to make an announcement acknowledging the issues and indicating how (or if) they're gonna fix the situation...

    I'll give it time though.
