Samsung Galaxy Portal
10 December 2010
Summary: "nice phone, slows up really easily and battery is crap to start with, but gets better after a few charges. Prob worth paying a bit extra for the Galaxy S or save a bit of money and get the Galaxy Europa.
Summary: this phone is slow not fast even if it has 800MHG it still carnt get the job done im sorry but its not worth it my phone freezes it lags on certain things i do the rotation sometimes freezes as well and randomly it reboots it self and i havent even damged it
Summary: This phone at first was great. But after getting use to using it, it is just as good as a standard phone but with the added features of a touch screen and android. 2 weeks after I got it, the "back button" and the "home button" became very tempremantal and then 8 months later they stoped working altogether. It crashes whenever I make a phone call and when I recieve a phone call whilst using an app or game.
Summary: I had this phone for 6months, I thought it would be really could as it's a Samsung and runs Android, however I was disappointed, my phone kept freezing on me, and I'd have to reboot it 5 or 6 times a day, after about a month of owning the phone, my SMS stopped working requiring me to download an app to take over the SMS duties.
Summary: Basically, this phone is extremely good and capable of doing anything. However with an extremely old version of Android, the phone loses it's praise. A lot of apps that are recently released are not available on the old Android systems. I do not see how hard it is to update the system infomation and Android. If it had Android 2.2, I would rate it 5 stars.
Summary: I am writing this review from a "non-techy" perspective! It is very easy to go to a search engine in order to gain access to the full specifications of this product, so I would advise you to do that if that's the kind of information you are after. My review is about what the phone is like to own and use from a qualitative perspective, and I will try to give as balanced a view as possible.
Pros: trendy with lots to enjoy thanks to the Android

Summary: I was impressed with the amount of cool applications i could download from the internet! You can get anything from a coin tosser to a gps speedometer, my favourite being the fully functioning metal detector...most of the aps are free but there are some sites that charge you for downloading but you dont have to use these as the free aps are more than sufficient.
Pros: Has cool gizmo's and features, tough exterior...funky looking
Cons: Bluetooth a big let down but if you can get past that then A +++
Excerpt: "...5mp should be standard, but samsung seem to keep forgetting this. The internet on the phone is fairly speedy, much faster on wireless obviously, but the HSDP is still pretty good, up to a max speed of 7.2meg/s - basically i can load my email inbox in about 3 seconds, get through internet banking in about 15, facebout in about 3 etc etc etc no problems there. The keypad takes a little getting used to for messages - sometimes the receptors aren't ...
Pros: fast internet, applications, quick to google search
Would've got 5 stars but i felt slightly let down.........

Excerpt: "...provider at there tarriff rates. The Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 is a tough little phone as i have dropped it a couple of times and expected the worse but the case and screen held together and with no scratches. If your anything like me i would highly recommend for my fellow clumsy people!! The Battery life is good when your not browsing the net so you might have to take the charger with you but small price to pay for the nifty things you can do ...
Pros: Has cool gizmo's and features, a tough exterior and just looks funky .
Cons: Bluetooth a big let down - but if you can get past that A + + + +
