    Boa tarde…
    Tenho um g551 e estou a adorar o telefone.
    1º porque foi muito barato, depois a bateria tem bastante autonomia.
    Tem um senão que não sei se pode ser solucionado, não te T9 (escrita inteligente).
    Alguém sabe de uma forma de ultrapassar esta questão?
    Obrigado :)

    this phone is nice , but the main problem is the battery , it really dies on 1 day and the wifi is weak , my phone before that was nokia E63 , its battery stays for 5 days with hard work with very strong wifi antenna .
    i am thinking of selling this phone samsung 551

    yeah, i totally agree everything is nice except battery. Samsung should provide some way on how to get this fixed. if you continue surfing and chatting it goes very low in 1-2 hrs.

  • subash

    coz of this i typically carry the battery every where i go.. to stay awake ma phone…

  • satya prakash

    Yeah but that should not be the case . you cannot use your mobile on the move and so this model is not fulfilling the purpose of having a mobile. And I am requesting to have a different battery which can support for more no. of hrs

  • satya prakash

    I do not know this thread is monitored or not. But we should request to the manufacturer. Otherwise this is not so useful. It has great features but we cannot use them properly untill battery is supporting it.

    um where do i buy one

  • Kelsishayla

    if you go into setting and under wireless and network adn then mobile settings, change the setting to use only 2g networks. this saves alot of battery. if you want fast internet just switch it back off

    I am a GT-I5510 user but i am somewhat disappointed with this phone and samsung itself. it cant be upgraded especially if you are from asia. even samsung has no upgrade for this phone. they have no support for it. they already abandoned it. they released a phone and then they just abandoned it. i regret buying this samsung phone. it kinda hurt me because i am a fan of samsung. my TV, ref, laptop, phone (GT-I5510 and E2652W), all of them are samsung. oh well…
