Samsung Galaxy Fit Review
30 September 2013
Excerpt: The Samsung S5670 also known as the Galaxy Fit is another one of Samsung’s entry in the plethora of mid-range Android-powered phones. Being in the same ‘Galaxy’ series of phones from Samsung, much is expected from this unit and I’m quite happy that it delivers considering the price point it’s being offered at. Samsung Galaxy Fit is a smartphone which operates at frequencies of GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 / HSDPA 900 / 2100 Mhz.
Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670 – Falls Just a Little Short of 'Fit'
26 February 2012
Excerpt: Samsung’s Galaxy series of Android devices are not only affordable but have been enjoying quite a bit if popularity amongst the lower budget smartphone segments. The last low budget Galaxy I reviewed was the Galaxy 3 and as much as I hated the design, the handset worked like a charm. One of the latest in the series is the Galaxy Fit or the S5670 and here’s a closer look to see if this one fared as well.
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: 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.
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.
Summary: For a price of Rs 12,860 in the market, the Samsung Galaxy Fit does very well when it comes to the price vs. performance ratio. Latest version of Android preinstalled, solid build quality and a very good camera make this a good deal, if you are looking for a phone in that price bracket.
Pros: Solid build quality (except for battery cover), Camera takes excellent still images, Android 2.2 preinstalled
Cons: Colours look washed out on the display, Battery cover is plasticy
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.
