Summary: I'm sorry to say that despite being a lovely phone and easy to use, the lady who bought this phone for her teenage son is not an 'end user'. I am female and do NOT have large fingers. However, irrespective of whether the phone is portrait or landscape, it's almost impossible to do text messages and quite frankly, the aim of buying a Smart phone was to access quicker texting. Fortunately, I have a stylus, but otherwise, it's a no-no for anyone over 10 years old.
Excerpt: "...and pdf files on your Samsung Galaxy Y. I've not used this feature more than once but it definitely works. There may be some things missed out, please feel free to comment and I can give my opinion on a specific aspect of this product. A list of apps I did not mention as I do not use them or feel they are quite useless - Gmail, FM Radio, social hub, talk, local, voice search, new & weather, samsung apps, and play books. ...
Pros: cheap, reliable, strong reception, many features, strong
Summary: This phone is ideal for those of us who are not very good with technology. I purchased this phone for my husband as he wanted to text friends but found it difficult with a key pad phone, this phone has talk text facility which means he can now text easily (and more to the point it saves me replying to his texts for him) !!
Summary: I wanted a smartphone that suited my needs and not one that does everything but slice bread. This model proved to be just right for me. Although the user's instructions are rather minimal, I have managed to work out how to do most things and have downloaded several apps that I think will be useful.
Summary: I bought 2 of these, one for my mum and one for my brother. They both have not had a smart phone before, and this is a perfect one for beginners on smart phones, as they can get used to its features and touch screen, its easy to use. I have the Galaxy S4, and as that would be too advance for my mum and brother I decided to buy them the Galaxy Y to start off with. Its really good, easy to use, stylish and looks cute lol.
