If anybody's looking for a macbook I have one for sale white 13" for $500.
any word on the 2.2 update? what about the fm radio? Can't seem to find it on the Cell South version, do we have to wait for 2.2 to get that as well. seems like a lot of the features advertised for this phone won't be available until we get a 2.2 update.........
Or the front facing camera. Its in there, just isnt active.
Hell, still might
Id rather have the FM radio though. That would be useful for me, of course there is slacker and pandora, or even Sirius/XM app, but sometimes I like to listen to the local stations.
Our galaxy doesn't have a camera what your talking about is the prox and light sensor if ours had a camera it would be on the opposite side of the speaker.
I just wanted to let you know that this thread and your combined wisdom were instrumental in leading me to the Showcase. This is not only my first android but also my first smartphone. I feel like i've just made one of the largest technological leaps since the day I got a DVR... and once again, it feels great. So, thanks.
On to my question... what kind of battery life are you guys getting out of your Galaxies? I've been getting about 12 hours out of mine. I've got a push corporate email account and gmail running. I try to kill any other apps when not in use. My brightness is set as low as it can go. And I only refresh apps manually. Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi stay off all day. I usually make about 3 15-20 minute calls a day, and I browse the web for about 15 minutes. Do y'all have any tips on how I could get any more life out of my battery? Thanks.
12 hours is pretty good battery life out of any smartphone I have ever had. I usually don't get anywhere near that.
Macon, my personal experience is that 12 hours is fairly typical and you wont be able to get "much" more no matter what you do when it comes to smartphones. I am not sure what kind of phone you had before, but remember, it takes alot more juice to keep a smartphone running all day versus a normal phone.
My previous phone was a terrible Samsung Finesse. The only positive of that phone was the battery. I feel better knowing that 12 hours is normal.

How much longer do we have to wait on 2.2.
