    Hi guys, My friend own a samsung galaxy s(available in Singapore) and i lent it to use.I find it having some lagging issue. Example when clicking application tab and back to home it isnt smooth at all and when i open AMPED(A Singtel application) the phone hang for like 15second and said the application is not responding. Samsung galaxy s should be a better phone compared to hd2 however my friend own a htc hd2 he doesnt have any lagging issue. Any idea why?

    Sounds like all the lagging issues are coming from Singtel users so far. Maybe there's the problem.

    I have a Galaxy S here in England just got it today but its a sim free version theres no operator branding on the phone at all and theres no lag.

    It could be the operator firmware slowing the phone down?

    I think its the operator firmware thats slowing it down, the demo units from our local telco here also have slowdowns. I'll confirm this when I get the unit.. they said that June 24th is the release date.

    It's the firmware Singtel uses. There are Singtel's own applications running and such.

    is there anyway to get rid of the firmware by rooting or sth? The lagging is kind of annoying

    I'll definitely be interested in your thoughts, both for myself and my missus, who is weighing up her options regarding a new contract/upgrade. She likes the Desire but like myself is tempted by the Samsung - as am I!

    From the sounds of things, the AT&T Captivate may also be laggey too:(

    Hoping to see an actual demo/review of the specific phone.

    Why will the AT&T version be laggy?

    Edit: And where did you hear/see that?

    I didn't hear that. I made that statement to get feedback, and it was based on this comment: "As mentioned Network Branded Versions might Lag but my Sim Free version does'nt lag even with multiple apps running and live wallpaper etc ", which is at post # 9 above.

    The Captivate would be a Network Branded Version...no?

    It just seems to only be the software on the phone from the carrier, which you shouldn't be using anyway.

    Glad to hear that.

    I am hoping to see an actual review some time before long.

    Well, the captivate won't have one until it's released sadly, which will be a while. But the galaxy S should be reviewed by engadget or somebody soon.

    Someone in another thread that as it is using an older kernal all the 512mb memory is not available to it. Could it be the reason for the lag.

    Is that so....was thinking of getting mine from their. Normally Carphone Warehouse are not able to show you a demo, certainly not from my experience anyway.

    Wtf? :thinking: This is really confusing, I mean, in 99% of the videos it looks super-fast, some users say it's actually faster than Desire, still, there are those who say it's laggy...

    I agree...I really want to get this phone, but when you hear things like this it puts me right off. One thing with the Desire from my own experience is it does not lag at all.

    the lagging that people are complaining about is on the opening of applications. almost all post i have read in other forums say the applications once opened run fine.

    any here holding a Network Branded Version samsung galaxy s? Mind posting your review(like having any lagging issue when pressing application and back to home) and which network company's. After reading this thread i still have doubts about its performance. :/

    I have a phone on Optus (Australia) and I am having issues with the phone lagging when opening apps, and even when unlocking the phone. It takes the phone a few seconds to even register my unlocking code, or when opening an ebook, it takes about 2 minutes to load the book, and a few seconds to register a page change. Does anyone have any suggestions, stopping short of complete reset.

    Given the fact that I may have to reset the phone, is there any way I can save the apps and stuff to the memory card so I can retireve them later?

    On a side note, It only started lagging about 2 days ago, and it isnt even that full of apps and stuff.
