Excerpt: So, are you thinking of buying an Android phone that does not cost that much? Well this phone might be the one you are looking for. I have been using this phone for months now, and I can say that the Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 was a good purchase. It is easy to use, it is handy and it has the basic things you will look for in a smartphone.
Excerpt: To start off, we all know how Samsung Galaxy phones are becoming popular to the people these days, and as we all know, popularity eventually becomes the cause for these phones to cost higher. Well, if you want to try Android phones and you’re hesitant about it, you could always try to buy the cheaper ones first.. One of which is actually the Samsung Galaxy Y. It’s low on specs which makes it cheap, but it already contains the features most higher Galaxy phones have.
Excerpt: Initially, I found my new Samsung Galaxy Y (GT-S5360) rather disappointing. This is mainly due to the fact that I did not bother to read the instructions on how to use this Smartphone . In my defence, I have never read the instructions for any other Smartphone I have had, and it has never caused me problems before. In my opinion, the Samsung Galaxy Y isn’t at all intuitive. Let’s start off with the positive points, however.
Excerpt: After 2 months of having this phone all I can say is, that It works for me, even though Battery Life lasts 2 days on normal usage, and using wi-fi, playing games lasts only hours, 4 to 5 hours top, I actually reccomend this phone for a first time Android user, since it has a more basic Interface.
Summary: Good phone for this money, if you don't like big phons or do not have money buy this :)aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Summary: So far this is the best purchase I have made in quite some time. I was so tired of paying so much for my cellphone through "Big Red" AND constantly worrying about having a charged phone. I decided it was time to switch to something smaller, more simple, and hassle free. You see, I'm kind of weird: I seem to use my cell phone for calling and texting. I don't need to run 1000 high-speed apps and play all the latest games.
Summary: I have been testing the Galaxy Y and it's a decent entry level android phone for $125. Pros: - Camera - Android 2.3 Gingerbread (have not heard of any update to ICS 4.x) - Full functioning Google play market for apps. - SD slot that takes up to 32 gb (I am testing with 8gb) - Wifi and bluetooth - Good battery life. The phone will easily take you through the day with average use. Neutral: - Okay specs for a budget phone. Has 832MHz CPU. - Okay call quality.
Summary: Nice little phone. I bought this for when out of the country I could have something for local or international SIMs. Nice little android gingerbread phone, don't expect upgrade to ICS. Be aware that this phone is SMALL compared to most Android phones in the US--screen and icons are proportionally small, so don't plan on doing a long of games, etc. or other eye-intensive uses. But otherwise is great, works perfectly for what I need, and I am overall happy with it.
