Im curious as too just how many handsets are duds and how many are working well.
i think you would've gotten better/easier to read results if this had been a poll
from what i understand, though, Samsung has good quality control so there should be a normal amount...whatever the normal percentage is typically with handsets.
but i think i've seen 2 people on here or something that got bad screens that had a yellow tint or something on them
daym your quick!...still editting it...done now
every one has the wi fi issue but that will be fixed by an update doe
haha sorry. i sorta live on the forums these days
when i get mine in i'll be sure to do extensive testing and let you know with a vote of my own
edit: also, those of you with issues, if you could also please post what your issues are that would help the rest of us with looking for stuff. thanks!
No problems. My screen has a scratch but that's not a handset problem, it just means that gorilla glass isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Every gadget seems to have problems because people with problems are more likely to be the ones who post, vote on polls and speak up about things.
yeah, in all forums no one ever post "im happy and all is going well" lol
I'm happy and all is going well! LOL
Seriously though, I have been very impressed with the phone so far and have either not noticed the issues other people seem to have or am not bothered by them
I've had the 'random reboot' issue; phone turns itself off and on again several times a week. It's no more than an irritation at the moment, but not what I'd expect from a
Mines fine, haven't done updates cause they're not my thing (if it ain't broke, don't fix it etc)
I'm also in the 'all's well and everything working fine' group. Battery now settled too after the first couple of charges and now a comfy 3 days out of each, and i would say i'm an average user. I'm really impressed, in fact my only 'issue', if you can call it that has been no notification led, but i have downloaded noled for that. I was a bit mystified about the Wi-Fi Sharing appearing, but i un-ticked everything in the All-Share widget and it doesn't seem to occur anymore?! <said with fingers crossed!!>
+1. i havent even considered updating mine. seems to be working fine to be honest . one thing... not sure if its just me but... around the phone it seems like dust can get in...look closely. compared to the sensation which i think is a clean finish all around the phone
lol i see what you did there
i remember either reading something about space around the phone or hearing it in a review but i haven't seen anyone actually say there's dust under the screen or anything. will def be something i keep an eye on.
its a shame nowdays that most mass production has a higher fault rate than times of past, i just hope i get a good one
well I'm currently on my third handset, two have been replaced.
First one I scratched up (eventho I carried it in a pouch), later turned out was my bling bling ring on my index finger , so went to o2 store and told them it overheated and whatnot and got a replacement.
Must have been karma cause the second one I got, I slapped a screen protector on but it had some flickering issues..especially on white background and low-brightness (30%) it had some severe flickering issues, lines all across the screen. O2 replaced it for me again.
Now on my third handset seems perfect. Case and screen protecor, no flickering...happy bunny so far!
finally got mine from fedex. got up early this morning and had to drive 30min to get it. not sure why they couldn't have left it at a closer facility but whatever.
so far i'm very happy with it though. screen is amazing. it's very snappy and everything is working great that i can tell. will do more extensive testing to make sure but i'm pretty positive i got a good one
alright, i can now say that there are no issues with my device
very happy Samsung customer!
play HD games and feel the heat. its terrible not even a faulty handset... its a common problem
i own a high end PC... Quad-core... two 560 Ti in SLI... etc
it gets warm when i play a game.
it's not a problem when a phone gets warm when doing something similar. it's expected. you're stressing that CPU and GPU.
to my point, though. if every handset is doing this, wouldn't this be considered the norm for our phones? i believe this thread is for issues that are not supposed to happen with our particular device.
how warm is everyone's getting? too warm to hold? scolding hot?
mine is certainly not.
Whats the WiFi issue people are having?
True. It's something that needs to be "fixed" on everything. This are advancing at an INCREDIBLE pace, and the cooling tech, can't keep up. It's easy for a PC - you can stick a great big fan in it. A phone just dissipates the heat and there's not much else you can do about it.
Just thinking what the Kal-El will be like. Hand-warmer anyone?
i have no clue. i get two bars in the other room just like my old Evo when i had it running CM7. now, this doesn't necessarily mean i get the exact same signal strength even though it's displaying the same, but i can say that i was downloading stuff just fine and it never disconnected anywhere inside the house.
My first one was turning off on it's own requiring a battery pull, and the reception was up and down like a yo yo, poor wi fi reception, and laggy homescreen, and slow to wake.
This new one, seems to be fine. Reception is fine, wakes in a second, no lock screen slowness, and i'll know if its turning off again in a few weeks.
