Yea, but it you would think that a company fixes their mistakes the second time around.

Current Galaxy S user here and I'll tell you the same.

Sure it looks pretty nice, so did the original Galaxy S. I don't trust them.

I wouldnt worried about what nekrosoft13 and betterdan said, they are some of very tiny minority who are not satisfatured with Galaxy S. Samsung released GPS fix update back in September 2010 and if it still not fixed GPS issue then everybody will complainted and sales would been flopped but since January 2011 Samsung reported over 10 million Galaxy S been sold to date. It still selling like hot cake.

I found 3 Samsung Galaxy S II 1080p samples, I was shocked and stunned at the camera quality, they looked much better and smoother than both LG Optimus 2X and Motorola Atrix.








OMG I am SSSSSSOOOOOLLLLLLLDDDDDD!!!

just be patient and don't do something stupid like pre-order that phone. That "fix" that samsung released was only couple months late, and didn't actually fix the issue, it slightly improved GPS, but it didn't fix it. Galaxy S still has the worst GPS performance from all "premium" Android phones.

Samsung is really bad when it comes to android phone upgrades

No I know. I never pre-order things. As good as something is (game, product) there's always something wrong with it.

never pre-order anything from a company with bad record in that particular device group, for example Samsung with android phones.

HTC and motorola have a much better track record.

Well better wait until Samsung Galaxy S II reviews out to see how well GPS is perform.

Many people with Galaxy S with GPS fix updated experienced huge improvement on GPS and some had still not fixed and yet others had little improvement on GPS. Guess it all depend on network operators.

I wouldn't listen to Athlon he doesn't own a Galaxy S and doesn't have first hand experience with it. The GPS still isn't fixed by the way and I doubt it ever will be. The problems and complaints about the Galaxy S line are all over the net.

Get an Evo. Best phone I've ever had. Usually I see a new phone and say OH DATS NISCH! Since I got the Evo other phones don't exist. If I even look at another phone I would feel like I was cheating and it would get mad at me. It has already ran off my family and friends. My girlfriend won't return my phone calls and put a restraining order on my Evo. She said something about the phone being like Christine. I think she is just jealous. Who needs people or society when you have an Evo.
