I had a N95-1 too, but have to say the camera is brilliant! As far as the battery goes, i get 3 days out of it. I would suggest going to the menu page and see if you have anything running. There will be an icon next to a symbol. This causes massive battery life reduction if there is anything running. I find that contacts, music player are the worst. Ensure they are all closed.

Well, got the same results as everyone else. Stopped at 27% so pulled the battery. It's fine and I was willing to try it again but it starts downloading all over again. It downloaded the bloody files once yet it insists on starting again?!? It took 3 hours to download ffs. I don't mind that the release of the first update took a while (I had an N95 and the first update for that took a while) but it would be nice if it worked. I won't be buying another Samsung mobile anytime in the future.

strange?! It only took about 30mins to install the second time. I guess part of the download was cached on the pc?

Did the update work the second time? And when you tried to update did you get the screen telling you the update hadn't worked and you could put the phone in recovery mode if it didn't boot?

thanks for the reply, yeah this is a fresh system no gps, wifi as and when and two phone calls on the device and I am already fed up with the incredible gadgetry that this phone offers only to be let down with lazy and substantial software. I mean this phone is suppose to be the n96 killer but all i see is a fantastic looking device that suffers from incredible lag when taking photos, no podcast ability or the ability to save audio at the last point of play and a battery that seems to die at any given moment. When the n95 first came out it was a sod of a machine then the updates came flooding from nokia and next thing you know we have a-gps, podcast, a camera that is rapid and improving quality. The time samsung has had with the software i.e. nokias development over the several years of symbian and this is the best that they can do, it is shocking. But the technology of the phone 8 mega, and a web experience that is enjoyable is extraordinarily amazing.

Well it is downloading faster this time. It's only 80 seconds per 1% instead of 90. Sheesh.

As I said, just leave it updating while u are sleeping... after I did that I went to the updater again and it said It was up-to-date, it is really slow.

Success! The last time it stopped dead at 27% and stayed there. This time at 27% it immediately started 'downloading raw phone data' and went on to finish. Time to have a poke around to see if I can find anything that's different.

Well the update happened eventually, took a while as mentioned to download the files but the phone is reporting the updated firmware as listed with a version date of 17/10/2008, no major changes I have noted as yet. Only differences so far is Fring missing from apps. and Asphalt 3 is now Asphalt 4.
If anything else is noted I will update as and when.

Is the update just that big or do Samsung have very slow servers?

No changelog as yet, and I can't get my phone to update (software says it's unsupported) on 3 different computers, so i can't even check on known bugs :(
