Tireless Samsung engineers working on Galaxy S FroYo update "round the clock"

There’s HELL TO PAY in the IT department of Samsung, with the release of the Android 2.2 update for the company’s Galaxy S Android phone failing to hit its planned September release date.

Samsung is very sorry about that, and look – it’s working on getting it finished round the clock. Round the clock! There’s a team of men sobbing into a debug handset as we speak.

    Sounds like I should work there, I dont get any lunch full stop lol
    Maybe after Froyo they should work round the clock again to sort out the terrible RFS system files that have made a super fast phone only work to half its potential….oh wait a minute, Samsung have washed there hands of that and left it up to the community, mainly XDA developers.
    What should be happening is a Froyo update with a new fresh RFS system that works without lag. If it wasn’t for Ryan’s lag fix and the super amoled screen I would be really considering going for the HTC Desire HD..
    When you pay that kind of money you don’t expect to have to mod your phone to get it working properly….work round the clock???….your having a laugh.

    Funny funny guys.
    Froyo has been out officially since before this handset was released. It’s been in beta for many months prior to that.

    I don’t know about everyone else, but for me the reason Froyo is so damn urgent is the activesync bug in 2.1 – HTC provided their own fix for their users; Moto supply a FREE COPY of touchdown to all their users.. Samsung? When I called their support tech they didn’t even acknowledge the issue….

    Yeah…they are working around the clock my butt. They released galaxy tab with Froyo and its taken them THIS long to release it for the Galaxy S? Goes to show they care about new customers than existing ones. I bet they worked hard to get it working on their Galaxy Tab but now just trying to play “catch up” with their phones by “working around the clock.” Last Samsung phone I buy.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
