Mid-range smartphone round-up
14 March 2013

Summary: If the Samsung GALAXY S III forms the core of Samsung’s GALAXY line of phones, the Samsung GALAXY S Advance would be one of the many other systems orbiting it. This is not a flagship device; it’s meant to be the more affordable phone for people looking for something between the premium S III and the...
Conclusion: It's a good phone. If you're coming from a Samsung Galaxy Ace or Galaxy Mini, the Galaxy S Advance will make for a great upgrade, but we can't shake off two things: we've seen this formula from Samsung countless times before and we're getting an out of date version of Android.
Pros: Build quality, Bright, vibrant screen, Expandable & well connected
Conclusion: In conclusion I would say that this phone is one of the better mid-range handsets out there. I would say it felt a little plastic and the camera wasn’t really up to previous Samsung devices’ standards but was sufficient.
Conclusion: Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance has absolutely no major drawbacks, which makes it a splendid mid-range Android device. We are more than content with its design, the hardware has no troubles handling every day tasks with ease, and the in-call audio quality is absolutely ear-pleasing.
Pros: Great in-call audio quality, Fluid performance
Cons: Gingerbread at launch, Camera could have been better

Cons: No 1080p video recording, No Super AMOLED Plus, pentile matrix display suffers pixelation, No dedicated camera key, microSD card under the battery cover, Launches with Gingerbread
