    Haven't tried daily briefing yet but smart alarm wakes you gently with natural sounds like rain forest and bird calls, nice way to wake up.

    If you set it as daily briefing it will automatically start daily briefing after the alarm i.e. the samsung widget that shows weather and can also show news + stock info.

    PS: I havent tried it as yet.

    Thanks.

    I don't believe it that the phone has to be switched on for the alarm clock to work!!!!!

    What's the purpose of the alarm clock if I have to first wake up to switch it on?

    On alternate nights, when I go to bed I plug in the phone, but the charger is on a timer switch that comes on only at 4.30am. This is when my battery is at its lowest or totally flat. This has been my practice for the last 5 years. Now this has to go.

    The alarm work perfectly well even if the phone is switched off.

    I read this on another thread.

    For two mornings in a row, the alarm did not come on when my phone was switched off. Luckily I didn't overslept.

    Can you confirm that the Galaxy S alarm will still work when the phone is switched off? Just to be sure, I am refering to the Clock application, Alarm, + Create alarm,...

    I think it depends on what you mean by turned off.
    If you mean a quick press of the power button to blank the screen then yes, it will still work.
    If you mean a long press to open the dialogue box and then selecting 'turn off phone' then no the alarm won't work under this condition

    Pressing power key once is not switching off, it's just screen locked.

    Even a $20 Nokia has an alarm clock.

    It's not a simple OS issue. A hardware clock is needed to run even when the OS is shut down.
