Average Smartphone for its price.

Disclaimer: Been using this phone for about a year now. Starting with call quality... it's actually surprisingly decent for a low-end, same goes for build quality. The reception is actually great, which left me surprised. The same can't be said about its low-res display, poor multimedia experience (matched with an equally mediocre internal memory) and awful battery life.
Worth the money? Maybe not. There are better alternatives out there.
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.

Had this for nearly 2 years before upgrading to lumia 532 and this was just terrible! bad pictures, bad call quality the only half decent thing is its battery (1200Mah) but android eats it up! i won't recommend this to anyone unless its like an emergency phone
An absolute atrocity. Avoid like the plague.

Had to delete pre-loaded apps before I had 21mb to take a text. Samsung should be ashamed to have put this on the market. Put me off a new Samsung entirely. Buy an actual brick, it's better value for money. Upgraded to a Nokia N97 mini. Better phone by far...

I had to pay € 100 for this phone and it's so bad. After more than a year I find him so bad that I already buy a new go while even a little piece is not yet. Now let's look for new mobile. something of a sony.

Excelent for that price
Lautta17 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
never failed me, I've tried thousands of applications and worked perfect, the battery lasts more than a day after a year of use
Obviously, do not expect miracles from a team with android 2.3.6, but as a phone, not ever fail you

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.

I don't think of it as that good after a while
Nader1912 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
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.
Good Basic Phone

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.
Good.. but not the better

osama has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I've had this phone for over a year now and it's still running badass ,despite that i still want to get a new phone cause i've been hanging around with this for a long time already ,Here's my feedback
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.

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.
