Ahhh yes, 5,000,000 Galaxy S variants and EACH and EVERY one of them has major problems with GPS reception and it still hasn't been fixed. At this point, I wonder, can it be fixed by drivers? Otherwise it's a beautiful phone. But SAMOLED screen and .45nm Hummingbird and SGX 540 GPU don't matter if it's got one major flaw. At least for me anyways. I have a chance of purchasing one this month but I'm sticking to my HTC Desire because I can do a lot more with that phone and it doesn't have any specific flaws that I know of.

That's true, my friend does seem to be experiencing issues with the GPS.

Editor, I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly, but the article states that "All of them still boast a 4-inch AMOLED touch screen display, 1Ghz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash" I'm currently using Captivate and mine doesn't have LED Flash sadly :(, just want to make sure I'm either reading this correctly and I missed something on my phone lol.

I've actually had this same issue, but noticed when I use google maps to pull up an address and when I select the option for navigation it surprisingly works, but when trying to allow the phone to use location with GPS it doesn't work...Weird.

as an avid fan of apple's iphone i never reconsidered to buy an android smartphone but after trying the samsung galaxy s and seeing the amazing image quality thank's to the amoled technology and the menu's navigation and the size of the screen, i'm definitely thinking of giving it a try!
