Samsung Galaxy Chat Review

0. phoneArena posted on 23 Jul 2012, 06:14

We haven't seen too many BlackBerry-style Android phones hit the shelves, so every new model with a portrait QWERTY keyboard gets examined with interest. One new handset of this form-factor is scheduled to come out pretty soon – the Samsung Galaxy Chat. This is not the first Samsung handset with the “Chat” monicker. However, the first Ch@ts were simple feature phones that were mainly targeted towards teens who text a lot...

Hell, we need more QWERTY Android phones in general, high end especially.! QWERTY phones are now being reduced to low-mid range devices.

If they made a high end version of this, blackberry will cry.

well, this one is good considering entry level, low-priced but comes with ICS and touch screen too! what more can we ask for? I'll get it in a heartbeat for an alternative phone in the future.

Samsung has a tendency of lauching new category phones with low feature and low specs 1st, later once they gauge customer feedback then they come with a bang with inproved version, this has always worked for Samsung, look at earlier touch screen phones by samsung and then they came with full force with Galaxy series. Im sure they will come and surprise us with next gen chat series from this category soon.

guys please don't think to buy this phone....
very slow process. if u want to dial a number or want to search in ur contact list then u have to wait of atleast 15 to 20 second to open dial screen, this waiting time may increase if u have downloaded few application online. and many top rated application doesn't supported by this phone.
internal memory is just 2GB not 4GB & more than 1GB is filled by its preinstalled application. So u will b getting just 990 MB for your use..
And out of 445MB RAM 65% of its RAM is already used by its operating system.
i just purchased 2 weeks ago & now i m planning to sell...
I strongly recommend not to buy this piece of s**t…
be carefull...

Can the Camera of this Phone click text documents? In way are they Legible while Zooming.
Also, Is the Network connectivity of this phone Good?
Lastly, Does WhatsApp Work well?
