Summary: I have had to go to store many times due to frequent freezes. All they ever did was factory reset. and nothing helped. It took a year before the OS was upgraded, and still never helped. I became a pro at opening the case to take out battery as that was the only way I could re-start the phone. Some apps never did work on that phone. I have put FB back to the original installed version; I have done its upgrades, FB NEVER would load on this phone.
Cons: Poor quality, Not high def, Did not meet expectations, apps dont work phone freezes.
Summary: I cannot use this phone now, I can't even make a phone call. This is so important for my business and now after owning the phone for over a year I'm going to have to get a new phone. This is so sad, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO GET TO THIS POINT TO WRITE THIS REVIEW!!!!!! I AM SO UPSET!!!! UGH!!!!
I think this a good type of phone, but I had bad luck with this one.

Summary: I brought this phone as Christmas gift for a friend. When I received it I noticed that It was not shrink wrapped. After giving the phone to my friend, there a white line going down the display screen. Two Verizon reps stated that this is manufacturer defect. My friend has reported to me she has to take the battery out once a day because the phone would lock up or freeze up. I'll have claim on this product it was supposed to be brand new, sealed and undamaged phone.
Summary: When I bought this phone it was relatively up to date on OS and functionality. Samsung has not released any updates for this device beyond Android 2.1 which is now so far removed from Android capability that it is an insult.
Summary: Having a lot of problems with this model phone. In fact, this is the 3rd phone that Verizon had to send me. This one still freezes up all the time and I have to remove the battery, or I have to wait for several mins for it to complete the action I requested (like make a call). I will not be buying another Galaxy S. And I can't even get the 2.2 update. I really need it now.
Cons: freezes, slow to respond, have to take the battery out to reset always
Summary: While this phone was billed as a Galaxy S phone by Samsung and Verizon, it has never received an upgrade to Android 2.2 (froyo). Without rooting and updating your phone yourself, the functionality is rather limited. the hardware can support Netflix, Google Music, etc., but without froyo you cannot run these apps.
Summary: I had hoped that there would be an update for Android over the summer. I have had the phone over 6 months and there has already been an update to Android 2.3.4. There is no way to move apps to the micro sd card without an upgrade to 2.2 so all of the apps I would love to have on my phone slow it down to where I can't use the phone! There needs to be something done... I am not wanting to buy anymore of your products due to this!
