Conclusion: As a mid-range budget phone that does the basics, the Samsung Galaxy Fit does the job admirably. Easy to pick up and easy to get to grips with, it’s perhaps a good option for someone who has not used a touchscreen phone before or doesn’t want or care about the latest and greatest features and functions.
Summary: Today we are reviewing one such phone from Samsung – the Galaxy Fit S5670. It might seem like one of Samsung’s many low-end touchscreen phones, but this one is running Android. We’ll find out if it is worthy of the title smartphone or is it just trying ride the Android juggernaut.
Pros: Smooth performance, Compact, Cheap, Great camera, Larger screen than the Galaxy Mini, Attractive design
Conclusion: What we like about the Samsung GALAXY Fit is that it is comfortable to use and feels good in the hand. Besides that, it has every connectivity feature that a novice smartphone user would ever need. Photos taken with the GALAXY Fit look surprisingly good as well, and the TouchWiz UI runs smoothly on top of Gingerbread. Unfortunately, its low resolution display is quite unpleasant to look at.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Fit is yet another attempt by the Android army to storm the lower-end smartphone market. Placed right between the Galaxy Mini and the Galaxy Ace, the fit tries to deliver a solid smartphone performance at a very reasonable price. However, we are obviously still not at the point where this could be achieved without cutting quite a lot of corners.
Cons: Low screen resolution, No touchscreen haptics, No Flash support in the web browser, No video-call camera, No flash, no camera key, No DivX/XviD support out of the box, Poor QVGA video recording @ 15fps
Excerpt: We work out the Samsung Galaxy Fit and find it in good shape…… The Samsung Galaxy SII might be receiving all the accolades going at the moment but the truth is, it’s not a phone that is going to be within everyone’s budget. For those that have such financial constraints (and let’s face it, that means most of us) or want an affordable handset for the kids to use, then perhaps a look at Samsung’s more budget-conscious Galaxy Fit could be in order.
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S series of smartphones really took on the competition in the heavily competitive high end smartphone market. The Samsung Galaxy Fit, announced at the 2011 Mobile World Congress looks to do the same for the entry level market. Does...
Summary: The ringtones are loud and a dedicated speaker at the back plays sounds well. The vibro is also above average. This typical Samsung product has no problems with speech transfer whatsoever.
The phone will cost around €275-300, which is too much for a model with the QVGA screen. The screen size cannot help here. The handset looks and is expensive. Numerous models cost less than €250 with similar features and better screen.
