Ok, I got my SGS around 5 / 6 days ago and the day after I got it, Kies told me that I had a Gigerbread update witing for me. I wiped my sweaty little hands and updated and have been using the phone since. In the past 6-8 months, these are the phones I've had: iPhone 3 HTC Desire Blackberry 9700 Blackberry Torch HTC Desire HD IPhone 4 Palm Pre+ I've disposed of each one because they're either lame or have poor battery life. I only bought the Galaxy S because, basically, I'd run out of credible phones to buy, but you know what, I wish I'd bought the damn thing before I bought any of the others! I am totally sold on this thing. It's the only phone that I've not regretted buying! The battery life is absolutely astounding. Ive had it running for 2 days (12 -13 hrs per day) and the battery still has 1/3 left! None of the others even come close (apart from the BB9700 and it's hardly competition)! I've found it stable, logical in function, the screen is wonderful, calls are super clear and everything just works. If you're on the fence about any Android smartphone, get one of these and don't look back. I wish I'd bought one months ago - I would have saved myself a bucket load of money! Well done Samsung!
