Good low-cost phone
17 July 2012
Excerpt: This is my first android phone ever and I have to say it's not bad, regardless its "age". I bought it used for only €70. At first I had problems using it because it's impossible to turn off data transfer so if WiFi isn't available, it'll automatically connect to 3g/other carrier-provided network. Other than that, it works perfectly. Another negative experience is programming for android.
best lowcost droid phone yet, even though its been 1 1/2 year since release

Excerpt: This is an old phone (2009 model), and still its specs and functions are impressive for a low cost droid phone. 800 mhz cpu, mid range resolution, android 2,1, 1500 mAh battery, divx compatability,and physical back, home, menu, left, right, up, down, ok buttons, of which most android devices seem to lack (strange). There is no new devices better than this one for a similar cost.
Excerpt: Samsung seems to like capacitive rather than resistive screen, which to me is great since I am not too fond of using a stylus. I have had numerous calluses from this thin writing instrument and so I taught myself to use my fingers. There are quite a number of buttons in front, supposedly for shortcuts, including a directional pad, which would look clunky next to an iPhone. Samsung Galaxy Spica is certainly on my list of “next-to-buy” phones.
Excerpt: Due to its fast processor, I can do multitasking like listening to audio tracks while messaging or checking my email without glitches. Samsung galazy spica retails for 300 dollars. Before I bought it, I was tipped that it’s the cheapest android phone around. If you’ve been shopping for value phones, I recommend you this modest android phone because it encompasses almost all the functions a touch screen phone should possess.
Excerpt: But this phone is really easy to use. :) it has helpful widgets and ready to use built-in applications. The screen is big enough to engross your eyes with its very high resolution graphics. And by the way, you can have as many as 9 panels for your screen’s homepage! imagine that! The entire package of the phone is really worth it! it’s cost is justifiable and you’ll have everything you need.
Excerpt: The GalaxySPICA is my first Android phone and i can say that although not a lot of people can be seen using this phone but this is really a good phone. I have no hesitation to say that i am proud to be a owner of this good Android Phone.Design:My SPICA is Black Red and it look really attractive. There is only Black and red for sale in Singapore.
Summary: Great little phone which I have used for years. It does have some issues. Poor battery life, although most smartphones are not great on this. Also I could never get my mp3s to work properly with it. On the positive. It is good for listening to the radio and the camera is excellent. Took this on holiday to Colorado and got some good pictures. I bought it for £85 a couple of years ago, but you can get it for alot cheaper now.
Summary: This a really good phone and iv noticed a few of the reviews have said the battery life isn't very good but in my opinion, it is! like any phone if your not off it the full day it will run out of battery but if your on and off your phone then it's brilliant, I'm actually selling mines as the contract has ended and i'm moving up in the world of phones but this is a fantastic phone, go into your local store and try it out, it truly is a great phone.
