    Ok, you have convinced me that NO GPS is a FEATURE and not a flaw!! I'll get mine on the 26th when my contract allows.

    Heh, while the "5.1" option does do some interesting processing to the audio... no sound out of 2 speakers is going to be "5.1".

    I take issue with Samsung's false labeling of this "feature". Should be called "fake spacial processing" or something... but when it's coming out of 2 headphone's it's never going to be "5.1".

    Have you ever benchmarked your WiFi against an iPod Touch or iPhone?

    Captivate's WiFi sucks beyond belief. It's like going back to 802.11b. How 2001 of you, Samsung.

    No idea what you're talking about. My iPhone 3Gs and my Captivate both carried 9MB down and 1.8Mb up sitting side by side one floor above my wireless router. The iPhone shows it's getting a better signal, but it hitches on YouTube vids more than my Captivate, so I'm starting to think the signal indicator is off.

    Huh. Well, in my environment, I get 10Mbit/sec from my iPod Touch to Speedtest.net or dslreports.com/tests.

    The Captivate gets ~1/3 of the sustained throughput on download.

    Perhaps the ext2/ext3 mod for "lag relief" might make caching to the internal SD faster. Out of the box, I see terrible WiFi from mine, on multiple access points. It gets 1Mbit on the open AP at work, for example, where the Touch gets 4.

    Glad to hear some people are getting better results.

    I will say that my Wifi was hosed on my first Captivate. The internal antenna was broken. After I swapped my handset, my iPhone has no reception benefit over my Captivate whether that be Edge, 3G, or Wifi.

    Also, I have not modded my Captivate, outside of root and bloatware removal.

    hey is truth that people who use ipods or iphones are super duper cool?
    and they hate when another phone is good because the are afraid to loose that coolness?
    don't worried man in my book you will always be a super duper cool even if my phone is better

    After DivineDark's comment above, I got an RMA for my Captivate.

    They are sending another within 2 weeks. Damn, it went from overnight to 14 days in the last three days.

    If the new phone exhibits the same issues, the POS is going back.

    I get on my Captivate speedtest same exact speed I get from a wired computer connected to the same router, 10 mbps down 700-something kbps up (cable provider limits).

    BoulderGeek, PLEASE! Keep it cool. Keep language in check, no need to get rude here. That person was pulling your chain obviously. Just smile and be on your way. Do not waste emotions, and please do not subject innocent bystanders (like me) to reading this language.

    Not sure how viewing the WebKit browsers tells you anything about how wireless performance is affected in my real world practice.

    I have a replacement coming. So, perhaps I just have a bad unit. Time will tell.

    Please reread the forum rules (link in signature) and ask yourself if you REALLY want a forced "vacation" from the forums.

    I actually ran the test again last night two full stories above my wireless router.

    Iphone 3GS: 7854kb Down 1330kb Up

    Captivate: 8542kb Down 1459kb Up

    Both test ran using Speedtest.net apps in the exact same location within 10 seconds of each other. Exact same infrastructure used for both tests. 802.11G wireless.

    Not only was the through put on the captivate larger, but it was also much more stable. It was a steady rise from 7Mb up until the final number. The iPhone seemed to drop some packets during the test.
