Review Flashback: Samsung Galaxy Y

Galaxy Y is one of the cheapest Android Phone running on Gingerbread of Samsung. Yes! The Android OS, v2.3.5 (Gingerbread), with its CPU of 830 MHz ARMv6 is surprising because of its price!
It offers a full smartphone experience that suits on your budget!
Galaxy is not more advance compare to other devices out there, but it is always neat and clean to see in terms of user interface. The preinstalled application is not that bad because of its screen resolution.

Its key features are:
  • Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support
  • 7.2 Mbps HSDPA
  • 3” 256K-color QVGA TFT touchscreen
  • ARMv6 830MHz processor, 290MB RAM
  • Android OS v2.3.3 (Gingerbread) with TouchWiz UI
  • 160MB of internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot, 2GB card included
  • 2MP fixed-focus camera with geotagging
  • GPS receiver with A-GPS
  • Stereo FM radio with RDS
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Document viewer
  • Accelerometer and proximity sensor
  • Swype text input
  • MicroUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth 2.1
  • Social network integration

The things that makes my eyebrow to cross are:

-Low Screen Resolution that makes you limit the applications that may be available in the Android Market.

-The icons are a bit pixelated. Graphics of phone is very important because it gives your phone more powerful compared to others.

-It does not support Adobe Flash Player. Although Adobe discontinued updating Adobe Flash Player to mobile phones, Galaxy Y has lacking this feature, that is important for Internet addicts.

-No camera Flash and No dedicated Camera button. Flash is important in a phone especially night, and the button commonly on right is one of the first to look if you are using your phone more on capturing images.

-No secondary camera. Video Call is one of the popular means of communication, lacking its secondary camera is not just a big deal if you are not into video calling.

Dimensions: 104 x 58 x 11.5 mm
Weight: 97.5 g

The phone is not bad, but not that best in this era. With its price itself, it is really worthy and absolutely for young and novice smartphone users, that focuses on the connectivity and good social skills.

My rating:
4 out of 5

If you are a first time smartphone user, looking for Android Gingerbread OS, and has enough budget, I am recommending this Galaxy Y!
