Friends please read my complaint letter to Samsung India Support..Its is very important for all of us to spend our hard earned money on the right product..please read and get to know the mental torture you will have to face if you buy a Samsung Smartphone.

To Whomsoever It May Concern

I am Bhuwan Madan from New Delhi and I have always patronized Samsung products. I own a Samsung washing Machine, Microwave Oven and Smartphone and with this mail I would like bring to your notice a major complaint about your faulty product and its direct impact on the mental state of a consumer.

I purchased a Samsung Mobile Phone- Galaxy SL GT-I9003 (IMEI: 354949041714163) in March, 2011. The handset was working perfectly for the first six months but since October, 2011 I started facing a lot of problems with my handset:

• Firstly there was a problem with the screen, the touch buttons stopped working. The service centre executive told me that my handset will be fixed within 24 hours and I can collect the phone tomorrow. When I went to collect the phone, the handset was not ready and the screen was changed in a hurry in front of me. In addition to this, the executive delivering the handset was very rude and spoke to me in very rude and impolite manner. I took this issue to Mr. Sunny Sood (Manager) but no action was taken against the executive. On top of everything I was also given false information by the Service Centre Team that my phone will be upgraded to android 2.3 but in reality at that time the upgrade was not even available.

• The second problem happened very recently. All major applications in my handset stopped working and again I went to the service centre with my problem. I was told there was a software problem and I can collect my phone in 24 hours. I got my handset but the problem was not fixed as the problem was a major one. I again took the handset to the service centre and was forced to visit the service centre about 6 times before my problem got fixed (temporarily). The service centre team including, the executives, technicians and the manager Mr. Sunny Sood was giving misleading information and were not able to find a permanent solution to my problem. Finally I was told that they have replaced the motherboard inside my handset and the problem is fixed. Mr. Sood got involved in this only because I took this matter to the higher authorities- regional service manager and area service manager.

After facing so much harassment I made up my mind to sell my phone and buy a HTC Smartphone in place of it but since the phone was functioning properly I thought of giving Samsung a second chance and continued using it but on 20-12-2011 I notice due to the software upgrade the phone was hanging a lot and again I took the issue to the service centre. I requested the team over there to install Android 2.2 in it instead of 2.3 as 2.2 was working properly in my phone. First I was told it will be done but minutes later Mr. Sunny Sood told me it is not possible and after begging him he told it will be done. I collected my phone on the same day with Android 2.2 and I thought that finally after a screen change, motherboard change and lot mental harassment, my problems are fixed but I was wrong. On 21-12-2011 I noticed my camera and video player are not working.

I never wanted to write this letter but I am really irritated, frustrated with my handset and I had to bring to your notice that sad state of your customer service team and the way it functions.

Due to this experience, I am never going to buy or recommend a Samsung Smartphone/Product to any of my family members or friends. I was a big fan of your products but sadly I never expected such pathetic product quality and service from such a big brand.

I repeatedly requested the service centre team for a defected product replacement but my request was denied in a very rude manner.

As a working professional it is very difficult for any individual to take out so much time and get your product fix over and over again. Sadly your service centre does not empathize with your customer and do not respect your customer time. I will make sure that such issues come out in public and other innocent customers like me are not harassed at the hands of your pathetic and poor service team, who spend their hard earned money on your products. I will never forget all the mental torture, crying I had to go through due to your faulty product and service.

In reply i just an apology form the support team and they tried very hard to label my COMPLAINT AS FEEDBACK. I am now taking my complaint against the company to the Consumer Court of India to make sure that innocent buyers like us are not cheated by such goons in the market selling cheap quality products at such high prices and providing pathetic after sales service.

The best right now!

I just ordered this phone y'day (27th feb '11). I had been doing a lot of research on phones, mainly - Desire, Desire HD, HD7. This phone blows all away!

#Battery: 1650mAH >> desire/HD/HD7 - super high talktime
#Screen: Not amoled but definitely among the best & saves battery life - sharper display than Desire HD & 4" screen is better than desire.
#Front facing camera - which HTC phones lack!
#1Ghz processor dedicated GPU
#Upcoming upgrade for Gingerbread!

### Price = 19.5k = SUPERB!

The best phone you can buy below 30k :)

Value for Money phone

This is the best Android phone you can get at this price point.
It is a 1GHz equivalent of the LG optimus1 in terms of the Value-For-Money preposition. I was contemplating buying HTC desire, but was a little skeptical given 2.1 version and the older Hardware (No Front camera, battery life, No initiatives from HTC to update to Froyo). Price of 22k also did not help. Moto defy was a good option but it vanished very quick from Market, and SS galaxy i9003 trumps Defy in the areas I care.

Short review of the phone.
- 4 Inch screen makes using this phone a breeze. Videos/pictures look nice.
- The screen, even if not AMOLED is bright enough for comfortable use and better that phones in this price range.
- Battery life is good (If taken care of the Froyo low battery life workarounds)
- 1 GHz processor makes it blazing fast
- Internal 4G and expandable 32G memory
- Android 2.2 out of the box
- Adobe flash support out of the box.
- Based on the flagship galaxy S model for Samsung (I feel galaxy S is the most well executed phone by Samsung, Positives trickle to this model as well)
- Front camera for Video calls. Since 3G is here, this is a useful H/W bit not to be missed out.

- Can record videos in 720P but no HDMI output port.
- Neither is the AV cable supplied with the phone.
- No Flash for the camera..

Overall I love this phone. Flipkart has been Great in making the phone available first and then delivering it before time.

Sure there will be better phones and the single processor core androids will come down in price in future, but that won't bother me.... atleast for some time now.

Very good bang for the buck

Ordered this on 27th night and got it yesterday evening- Kudos Flipkart tram!

Battery - Huge plus even when compared to costlier phones.
Screen - Found it to be as good as the HTC desire HD, although AMOLED would have been better (but also costlier).
Front facing camera - which sealed the deal for me - not available in costlier phones
Comes with Froyo - and hopefully upgradeable to gingerbread since huge processor can support it!
Wifi hotspot works like magic - no problem setting it up.

Not very happy with the primary camera though - which also lacks flash.
Yet to get 3G enabled so would explore more after that.

Good Value for Money package

Its been over 6 months since I have had this phone and have used it extensively, so decided its not apt for me to give a review of the product.
Got this piece in Midnight Black (Brown/Copper was as hard to find as a Yeti)for Rs 20,500 in April after my iPhone 2G was K.I.A and Android was the flavour of the season.

Chose this over i9000 even though the latter had AMOLED and more memory thanks mainly to the better VFM proposition of the i9003.The Nexus S was also considered but it looked too clumsy and portly IMO.

Initial impression on opening the box was good with a good leather pouch adding to the premium feel. The headphones provided with the phone are nice with good audio quality. The phone looks nice and expensive thanks to its size and the chrome surrounding. The backside looks too plasticy according to me and makes me miss my iPhone's Aluminium posterior.

A big no-no is to put a scratch/screen guard on the screen as it badly affects the touch response. I am not going to put a new one once the current one comes off. I recommend putting a scratch guard on the back panel though (on the Midnight Black model) to avoid scratches and smudges.

Android 2.2 is a delight and the phone runs like a dream thanks to the 1Ghz processor and ample RAM. Playing high-quality graphic games is a delight and so it the multimedia playback. User-Interface though not as simple to use as the iOS, is nice and easy. As the 2.3 upgrade is now available, I'll be upgrading mine very soon.

Office and Push Mail applications work well and seamless and my Galaxy has shown a BlackBerry or two how its done. The keyboard is good with Swype feature being really easy and accurate. As I have big hands, I tend to mis-type at times when in a hurry. Swype again is a solution to this.

Camera is EXCELLENT with a very good stills and HD video recordings. Yes, I do miss the Flash at times and believe that a 20k phone deserves one.

Battery backup is decent. With heavy WhatsApp usage, about 1 hr of internet browsing, 3-4 hours of tele calls and 30-40 minutes of gaming, the battery starts begging for a recharge. Mind you, WiFi and GPRS are the main sources of battery drain. At times I have even managed to survive two days without a recharge.

Overall, a product worth every penny spent !!!

1. Good, rich looks and build quality.
2. 4 inch SuperClear LCD display makes Gaming and Multimedia awesome
3. Android 2.2 upgradable to 2.3
4. Good quality Camera.
5. Good headphones and leather pouch in the box.

1. Glossy back panel on the Black model prone to smudges and scratches.
2. Camera flash absent
3. Can only be upgraded to Android 2.3 and not beyond.
4. Cheaper Galaxy models (Ace etc.) look very similar from a distance.

Beware of the Froyo

The phone's features are very nice, but Andriod Froyo is an issue. MY phonce crashed the second day of operation . The SvLauncher application is really poor. Had to do a hard reset. Hopefully Gingerbread will solve the problem.

Don't want to discourage you from buying as this is a lovely phone.. battery backup was poor for first few days but now it seemd to have found it's gallop and all day of decent usage only used about 30% battery .

Use a theme pack such as go launcher as the home screen/theme application and the phone's preformance improves a lot.

Touch is very slightly sluggish as compared to IPhone... but then lets not kid ourselves ... we are anyways looking for cheap alternatives .. correct :)

Don't Buy this phone, Please read this

I am having this phone, since it's launched. I was very impressed with it VFM position.

But after using it for more than a month I started toi get lot of complains from my friend " I am not able to call most of time ".

After some troule, I identified the problem, When my data network is running, Nobody is able to call me, Means when I running internet through packet data, nobody can call me.

Surprisingly, This problem exists in all samusng phone but not in Nokia or BB.

And most interesting When I give my phone to Authorised service station..... They gave up and said..... We can't do anything, this is the problem with all samsung phone...

See this problem seriously, as these so called smartphones are useless without internet.

For me, I am not gonna by any samsung phone after this horrible experience in service center & with phone.

Don't buy. Inherent problem with the motherboard.

I bought this phone from a retailer last year. It was good when it lasted but then just about 2 weeks after the warranty period the phone started giving problem.
The phone reboots automatically every now and then. When it reboots it erased the contacts (in phone), sms, call logs.
I checked up and found out that I am not the only one facing this issue. A huge percentage of the S LCD GT I9003 owners face the same problem. The only solution seems to be changing the motherboard. The service center asked for 5K plus for replacing the motherboard. If there are some many people having this issue. Samsung should actually recall this phone and replace the defective part.
My trust in Samsung product has got a severe beating.
Never never another Samsung product.

Dear Friends....

After a really really long comparison between Htc Desire S and Samsung Galaxy SL, I finally brought this phone, though not from Flipkart but the reviews here did help me narrow it down to this particular phone. I have been an ardent user of Nokia phone till date...but let me tell you that ANDROID is gonna be the future of OSs. Its an amazing technology packed in this phone.
The bigger battery of 1650 mAH (after a very haevy use) does drain out in a single day, but just think of the fact that after being such a powerful battery it drains out in a day. What would happen to the HTC Desire S Battery which is not so powerful. Not taking anything away from them (HTC) I just want to tell them that each and every good feature of a smartphone is helpful only till the time phone is ON...not when the battery drains out and the phone gets switched off.
Apart from that the other helpful feature is the phone memory of Samsung Galaxy SL which is 4 Gb. Most of the ANDROID applications are saved on phone memory only. These are just my view, do some research more to get the best value for your money.
Thank you Flipkart for providing such a platform through which we can help others.

Problems Solved !!

I have been using it for almost 1 month now. Must say , I really started liking it. I am not going to iterate through pros-cons list, because lot of good people have already done that. I will just list what problems I had and how it got resolved :-)
When I purchased , got froyo. Installed latest kies and Samsung India has released build gingerbread.XWKPG(2.3.5) couple of days back.After updating firmware, a lot of issue got resolved.
1.Excellent battery life
2.GPS issue resolved , works pretty fast even locks indoor too
3.Sound quality has been improved.
4.Force Closure of app resolved
Wifi gave me some issue ,but by changing DHCP expiry to 2 weeks from never and WMM QOS disabled,it is working fine too.
Now I feel it was worth a purchase :-)
I do also like to thank flipkart ,which provide us platform to share our experience , so we can judiciously decide on the purchase.
