Samsung Galaxy Y Preview

0. phoneArena posted on 15 Sep 2011, 04:12

About half a year since the company launched something like the Samsung Galaxy Mini, for instance, it announced the Galaxy Y, which, according to the new naming scheme, should be an affordable handset for teens or emerging markets. Some of its specs are marginally better than the Galaxy Mini, like a slightly faster processor and less weight, but the camera is 2MP, for example, against the Galaxy Mini's 3MP...

This phone's no way near to ACE, which's nearly twice the price tag of this phone.
Samsung Galaxy Y – 3-inch LCD, 320 x 240 resolution
Samsung Galaxy Y – 832MHz processor
Samsung Galaxy Y – 160MB internal storage, microSD up to 32GB
Samsung Galaxy Y – Android 2.3
Samsung Galaxy Y – 2-megapixel
Samsung Galaxy Y – 104 x 58 x 11.5 mm, 97.5 grams
this phone can be best compared with GALAXY FIT!

Compared to Galaxy Y, ACE carries,
Huge screen (320 x 480 pixels, 3.5 inches) , 5mpx cam with flash, OS : Android OS, v2.2 (Froyo), upgradable to v2.3
CPU : 800 MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset

Have seen people complaining about Galaxy ACE's battery performance, which drains very quickly when multi-tasking and gaming.

If you are looking for an android device with decent camera within 10K price tag go for Galaxy FIT, since it carries 5mpx camera(without flash)
Pro : Upgradable to 2.3 gingerbread,Decent camera, large screen (3.3' screen) useful for people who text/surf more.
Con: Even if upgraded, 600mhz processor might slow the device and hang, weighs little more than Galaxy Y.

If you are performance lover, need the latest android OS pre-installed and doesn't require camera features within the same 10K price tag go for Galay Y,
Pro : Android 2.3, 832MHz processor, Cheap competitor to mid-range android phones,sleek than Galaxy FIT
Cons : Small screen (3' screen), 2mpx camera (without flash)

Why Samsung has not included a front camera for video calling? Hard to find affordable android gingerbread with video calling.

Front camera is the must for 3G world and minimum dualsim.Otherwise it is waste and descenting the buisness.The graph may be to down and duplicate products may leads the market

Dear, Androind doesnt support video call over 3G, you can make calls by Voip only.. So think about it. If you want a front facing camera in low end andro mobile, then go for Micromax A70.

Well,I can't just understand the rating criteria of PhoneArena as you people have given this phone 7 and the Nokia 603 6.5 why????
While comparing the specs
Nokia 603
320x640 screen resolution
210 ppi
3.5" IPS LCD Clear black display
NFC,Tv-out,Usb on the go,Ambient light sensor,5mp camera and HD video recording.
On the other hand this small handset has just got 3" display,180 ppi,240x320 screen resolution and many other downsides
And with the Carla update Nokia 603 will get Html 5 support,Dolby digital Surround sound and better NFC integeration.
Now can anyone justifies the point scoring.
