1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Given the bugs on the GSM Galaxy's maybe the delay is a good thing?

    Hey guys. I owned the Samsung Vibrant for two weeks before returning it and switching to Verizon and the Droid X. While most of the reason for the switch was the spotty 3G service in Houston the other part was that the Vibrant was just plain buggy. There were three major issues I had with it that also appear on the Captivate as well. First the GPS is horribly broken. Even when outside it can take upwards of 5-10 minutes to lock a signal, yes there is a so called fix but that only helps in some situations. The other is the lag issue which is most apparent in the email app where opening emails can take several seconds and is quite annoying when you need to rely on your phone as a work phone too. Finally Samsung is using it's own media scanner which creates duplicate playlists every time you connect the phone to your computer, these duplicate are actually ghost files and will confuse your music player into making it think there are multiple playlists with the same name even if only one is a real playlist.

    I would like to think that Verizon is going to be much more careful with the release of the Fascinate and won't accept these kinds of bugs. Hopefully when they do release it these will be fixed because if they are I would totally go back to the Galaxy. As much as I like my Droid X, I still can't adjust to how poor the screen is compared to the Galaxy and the 4" size of the Galaxy is really the perfect size for my hands. The only thing I'd miss is the Droid X's LED notification light.

    So trust me as much as we would all love this phone now you would be even more disappointed if you had it and it was buggy and then had to wait on Samsung to fix it. We all know how poor their track record is on supporting phones so we need to make sure they get it right the first time cause who knows when they first update would be.
