Thinking of buying a Samsung Galaxy Spica cause it's not expensive and has a 2.1 update. So if anyone can share some info on performance, battery life etc. would be great
I switched to Pulse first but was a bad idea from an iPhone. Now i have a Samsung Galaxy Spica (with original firmware what means 1.5 in Hungary atm) and i have to say it's PERFECT for me. Fast, reliable, long battery life. Lets say it: im a curier using GPS A LOT. iPhone hold out from 8AM to 1PM than its off...Galaxy Spica was at 70% at 2PM. Im using for Facebooking, chatting, Twittering, navigeting in the car, and i had to charge my iPhone (with turned on 3G) for twice a day, this phone holds out til end of the day. SOrry to match these phones (i know many like/dislike iPhone as an Apple product) but iPhone was my last phone so far. I installed..at least a couple programs, still enuff memory,listening music (on the earphones it sounds at least as good as iPhone. And it wasnt rebooted suddenly (like my Pulse did) and it doesnt drop the data connection when im using the GSM mudole (aka phonecalls) like iPhone does.
Only thing what i noticed (dunno maybe a typical Android problem) when i type SMS or Emails fast, than the keyboard stimes "thinking" for 1 second than quickly foloow my typing.
So mate i have to say if u planning to buy one, than i suggest it as a good idea. Here is a (SUBJECTIVE) price:value ratio :
iPhone 1 price to 0,5 value
Galaxy Spica 0,75 price to 1,5 value
in my opinion.
