Summary: My main motivation for buying this phone was it cost less than having a cracked screen repaired. No problems connecting to Rogers and WiFi. Android 2.1 is easy to use, but is getting a little old (4yrs next Jan). Some newer apps (eg.Dropbox, Angry Birds) won't install, but there are other games available. Not a lot of internal memory, but a $12 32Gb memory card fixed that. The screen isn't very big, but the phone didn't cost $600, which balances that out.
Excerpt: Just bought it last year and it is a remarkable phone! It could support the latest andriod 4.1 with many things scaled down. (find how yourselves) Battery life is so-so after kept listening to music and reading comics, but shockingly long when left it by itself(lasted about 4 days without offing it). Games on it is nice as it could run Gameloft games.
Excerpt: If you are looking with a good smartphone with lots of features than this is a great phone for you. It comes with android 2.2 and can be found on Amazon for under $150 for an unlocked phone. I have had mine since Feb. 2012 and have dropped it once 3 feet off the table onto a tile floor (the back popped off and the battery fell out but other than that it was fine and did not receive any major damage) :) If you do buy this phone you will want to also get a protective cover...
Summary: Samsung Galaxy GT i5500 features bottom line specs of nowadays smartphones. Display may be a little bit small comparing to other smartphones and i think 3.2 inch display would be better than this one. It is for people who like to use android smartphone but can't afford expensive phones. 600MGh processor is pretty good for net browsing, playing games as well. Capacitive touch screen is normal not best like iphone's.
Excerpt: After several rewies statements and videos, I concluir which is the Best-in-class smartphone, what else complain about it is the battery and camera, but if a phone with many functions like this of course will discarregar with overuse, and to a perfect camera? want a good camera, buy a digital camera!
