It simply cant call anyone for more than 1 minute, the display is the worst i have ever seen, android 2.3 is ainceint, there is a "samsung" virus to try and annoy people off their cheap phones and switch to there ridiculus 700 dollar phones. Camera is broken after 7 months, battery is 1 hour if you dont use it at all, 5 minutes talk time, 2 minutes game time, and the wifi doesnt work. It will say mobile network unavailable when it gets full reception.
terreble phone. any other phone by a different manufacturer is way better.Build quality 2/10Reception 1/10Call quality 1/10Internet 2/10Multimedia 2/10Camera 1/10UI speed 1/10Everyday usage 1/10Text input 1/10Display 1/10Battery 1/10

Nice little device for little budget

For cheap and Android normal usage, it is best to buy it as your secondary phone or as third, forth, fifth or soon device. Had GPS, WiFi, Camera, nice sound but not loud. We can do basic smartphone and internet usage activity. So complete for it's budget.Build quality 5/10Reception 5/10Call quality 5/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 5/10UI speed 3/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 3/10Display 3/10Battery 5/10

I don't think of it as that good after a while

seriously. i do not recommend this for anyone apart from people who have never used or seen an android. i've had it since dec 2011. now it's nov 2012. the battery was nice at first but after 7 months mine's battery only lasted 4 hours. on wifi half an hour. on games 50 minutes (all tested at 100 % charge). screen size and resolution cause a lot of apps to get really slow and laggy. some dont even work. camera stinks.Build quality 8/10Reception 7/10Call quality 9/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 6/10Camera 3/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 5/10Text input 6/10Display 3/10Battery 3/10

Good Basic Phone
ymborrego has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
After 2 months of having this phone all I can say is, that It works for me, even though Battery Life lasts 2 days on normal usage, and using wi-fi, playing games lasts only hours, 4 to 5 hours top, I actually reccomend this phone for a first time Android user, since it has a more basic Interface.Build quality 8/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 7/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 7/10Display 8/10Battery 5/10
- Thin & Small
- Call Quality & Reception are Great
- Fast CPU
- Music Player is awesome
- Battery Life too short
- Small Display 3.0
- 2 MP Camera
- Texting in a small Qwerty Keyboard is terrible

Excellent value for money.
rupeshanusuri has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
The phone offers good value for money.I recommend this phone for first time android users.
UI speed is also satisfactory.
One can even play HD games after rooting and using chainfire3d.
But the small screen sometimes makes ypu wish you had a bigger one.Build quality 6/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 7/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 7/10Display 7/10Battery 7/10

It's definitely a better idea to spend a little more and get a better phone. Cheaper is definitely not better when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Y. I suugest that if you are planning on purchasing this phone, please do proper research on it and have a look at the recent phone reviews conducted by cellular companies.Build quality 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 7/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 3/10Text input 3/10Display 6/10Battery 3/10
