Samsung To Fix Galaxy S GPS Issues in September

The Samsung Galaxy S is easily one of the best Android phones to date and has record sales across the globe. There are many variants of the Samsung Galaxy S, namely the AT&T Captivate and the T-Mobile Vibrant. Even the upcoming Sprint Epic 4G is based on the Galaxy S.

However, most of the Galaxy S phones have been having GPS issues. The problems range from not being able to get a lock on any satellites, bad GPS reception and GPS not functioning properly when using apps like Google Maps.

Many users have been complaining about it but there hasn’t been any response from Samsung’s end. Today, however, Samsung let out a tweet which said that

“We’re testing software to optimize GPS on US Galaxy S. Expected updates avail. in Sept. Details & download to follow.”
