I bought myself a Samsung Galaxy 3 as a Valentines day gift  😉 . Yes I really did.

I needed a new phone, wanted to play angry birds and my Nokia E63 was not able to run my office email properly. So here I am with a shining new Galaxy 3.

I was very enthusiastic for this phone as this is my first android phone and yes the phone delivered on the expectations when it came to applications.

I switched on the phone and went online within 2 minutes. I got a call and it was already displaying the contact details, name and photo. Thanks to Google sync. The phone is great for applications.

But here comes the reality. I just want to share my experience because I am very demanding from my gadgets and their functions.

You buy a phone to make calls and text, right?

But this Galaxy 3 from Samsung sucks big time at it though it is to be considered a phone.

  • It took the phone almost over a minute to display the Contacts.
  • It is very slow for phone functionality.
  • It takes more than 20 seconds for the SMS to show up.
  • Phone application hangs with a Force close / Wait popup staring at you.
  • The phone hardware is just decent.
  • Samsung decided not to enable the Live Wallpapers.
  • Samsung Kies does not support connection over Bluetooth. (Who keeps the phone connected to the computer always?)

    I have a Galaxy Tab and I’m really pleased with it. Admittedly I don’t use it as a phone.

    Same with me… It is a phone that sucks as a phone.
