Samsung Galaxy 3 Reviewed
31 December 2010
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy is a new budget Android smartphone which has a 3.2 MP camera, a 667 MHz processor and 256 MB RAM. It runs Android 2.1 Eclair with TouchWiz 3.0. It will be priced at around $299 without contract.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy 3 should make a compelling mid-range Android device with its capacitive screen, polished TouchWiz interface with SNS integration, and generous battery size. However, the design is nothing impressive, and the CPU plus the screen resolution render browsing often choppy and pixelated.
Pros: Very good SNS integration with contacts, Latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth standards, Plays DivX/Xvid formats out of the box
Cons: Low screen resolution, Touch focus is hit-or-miss, Poor video recording, Lag here and there
Excerpt: Finally, proof that a smartphone need not be ludicrously expensive to effectively run the Android OS. Yes, you read that correctly -- Samsung is bringing affordability and functionality to the masses with its I5801 Galaxy Apollo (otherwise known as the Galaxy Naos or Galaxy Leo). The phone offers 32 gigabytes and a Micro SD media card, which means users can store more pictures, movies and music.
Summary: The Android-based Samsung Galaxy Apollo GT-i5801's slick touchscreen, reasonably powerful processor and impressive multimedia features help it rise above the moderately priced smart-phone competition
Pros: Responsive touchscreen with multi-touch support, Fairly long battery life, Good camera, Impressive video playback
