"GRRRRRR..."

September 04, 2013  |  By eloi1130

 |  Version: Kies 2.3.2.12054

Pros

Nothing at all...completely useless and takes space in my computer. could even be a bug that slows it down

Cons

Lets see, firstof all it does not open up, even if it does, it never recognizes any of my devices.

Summary

SAMSUNG is a billion dollar company with a crap software that can not even update its products because they installed a system that if full of faults...GRRRRR

"Works as advertised!"

November 22, 2012  |  By carmwarf

 |  Version: Kies 2.3.2.12054

Pros

transfers contacts and calendar items seamlessly

Cons

gets stuck every once in a while

Summary

This is app is great. You do have to learn to use it - best to do 2 way sync so you don't get duplicates. I only use it for contacts and calendars and it does what it says it will do. I don't understand the negative reviews unless they don't understand how to use it.

"Kies is useless."

September 30, 2012  |  By berean77

 |  Version: Kies 2.3.2.12054

Pros

I can't think of any at the moment.

Cons

It will not install latest version as it's uninstall program is unable to fully uninstall earlier version. Now I have no version to use, and I need it to back up my Galaxy S2 before sending it in for repairs. Now I am forced to search for other backup options.

"Samsung needs to start over on this one"

July 10, 2012  |  By Pmgehring1

 |  Version: Kies 2.3.2.12054

Pros

Auto Sync, back up

Cons

Sloooooooooooooooow. Won't properly update, takes up to much space and CPU power for such a simple program

Summary

PLEASE Samsung! just start over on this garbage software! I want to update my phone but i have to update Kies first and it continues to hang up on the newest "2.3.2.12064_9" update. Customer care can't help, uninstalling and re-installing doesn't work, they don't have a fresh release of the newest update. From the get-go this program has been nothing but a problem!

"Simply CRAP."

June 08, 2012  |  By Eiguini

 |  Version: Kies 2.3.2.12054

Pros

There must be something better out there...

Cons

System hang on huge resources required.
Duplication of data.
Slow, slow, slow.
Conversion of column headers is WRONG.

Summary

I am happy with the Samsung ACE and with Android, and even with Windows 7. But this KIES is just useless.

"Slow and Bloated!"

May 29, 2012  |  By Conno

 |  Version: Kies 2.3.2.12054

Pros

Checks and updates firmware. Official Samsung Software.

Cons

B-L-O-A-T-E-D!!
It's a 90 MB download, Takes about 15 min of disk churning etc. to install and ends up being about 200MB! It also takes ages to start up and when it finally gets there there's no clear way of backing up text messages - one of the main reasons I installed it in the first place!

I ended up with "Mobile Go" by Wondershare - much smaller, faster, a quick install and easily backs up my text messages.

Summary

Under-functional and ridiculously large and slow piece of software from a manufacturer that should know better. A very poor reflection on Samsung...
