Samsung Galaxy Music Review
The phone runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which is covered with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI on top. It offers no surprises, with the typical Samsung set of widgets, and an abundance of connectivity toggles in the notification bar.
There is a pretty spare use of transparencies and transitional animations compared to the large caliber Galaxies, as the processor is not very powerful to support those freely. Apart from its own apps and media Hubs, Samsung has only preloaded Quickoffice for opening MS Office and PDF files.
As you can easily guess, typing on the smallish display is not very easy, especially with bigger hands, and the fact that the keyboard doesn’t turn in landscape mode isn’t helping either.
Processor and memory:
The 850 MHz processor is single-core, but with a Cortex-A9 architecture, so it has enough power to pull through your daily tasks and interface navigation, but often has hiccups while loading apps, or running more demanding ones.
The Galaxy Music has 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal memory, of which 1.7 GB are user-available, but it also offers a microSD card slot on the left for storage expansion with up to 32 GB cards.
|Quadrant Standard||AnTuTu||NenaMark 2|
|Samsung Galaxy Music||2050||3787||28.5|
|LG Optimus L3||1271||2559||13.2|
|HTC Desire V||1807||2866||19.7|
Internet and connectivity:
The browser on the Galaxy Music is a basic ICS version, with no Adobe Flash support, and somewhat choppy panning and scrolling thanks to the comparatively slow processor. The low pixel density is a bummer, too, but you are unlikely to use it on such a tiny screen for hours on end anyway.
The handset sports the basic connectivity options - 7.2 Mbps HSDPA downloads, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and FM radio.
