Samsung Galaxy S gets Android 2.2 upgrade

17 Nov 2010

Samsung Galaxy S owners can now or will soon be able to upgrade their phones to Android 2.2 (Froyo,) which lets users access new features, improved navigation apps and a faster performance.

This will come as good news for Galaxy S owners, as the upgrade will improve the heavy-weight smartphone’s capabilities.

One benefit of the upgrade includes an improved browser performance, with enhanced navigation and the “pinch to zoom” feature.

The user interface has also been enhanced, providing vivid colours and features to the menu structure.

Samsung Galaxy S owners will now have a Google Maps GPS navigation system with voice guidance for turn-by-turn navigation.

The phone now supports Flash 10.1 for broader internet browsing capabilities and video content viewing.

There is also the ability to search in-browser, using Google Translate, Wikipedia and Dictionary.

At the moment, only Vodafone and Meteor customers can avail of this offer. O2, 3 and eMobile customers can get the upgrade in the next few weeks.

This upgrade is available through a new version of Kies, Samsung’s in-house software upgrade programme. It’s available on Samsung’s website.

Samsung also has video tutorials on how to upgrade on its official YouTube channel.
