Very Good Entry Level ANDROID mobile from Samsung
25 January, 2014
Basically Talking about the Features, Samsung Galaxy Y has 3inch Touch Screen, 3G, Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, GSM, 832Mhz Processor, 2 MP Camera, 256MB RAM, Android Gingerbread and 1200mAh Battery.
I have used this mobile for 1 year and would like to share my Personal Experience.
I was searching for a Touch Mobile, because i want to upgrade from the Bar i.e Keypad ones.
At the same time the most popular Android Operating System "ANDROID" came in to this world. Now its ruling the World of Smartphones.
I wanted to try something new because i thought there will not be much difference between a Java keypad and a touch mobile. Finally Bought this Device for Rs.7000.
The first impressing thing is the Features offered by Samsung or Galaxy Y. Of course when you compare with today's smartphones it may be little difficult to accept it. But as an entry level Android smartphone from Samsung, this device became very popular.
3inch Touchscreen i very good and the response and the touch speed provided by samsung is awesome. This device helped me a lot with the GPS while travelling.
Other features like Wifi, Bluetooth, etc are good.
Talking about the RAM, it had done a great job. During my usage this mobile switched off automatically 4 or 5 times only that too when i am on roads, may be because of the Heat i think.
The only problem with my device is It always used to Say " Preparing SD Card " .
This created me a lot of problems. When ever i want to listen to music i just unlocks the phone it says Preparing SD Card, so that i should wait it to scan.
Coming to Gaming experience this device performed upto the mark. I enjoyed some high end games like Asphalt, Need for Speed, Temple run 2, and the very good gaming on Raging Thunder. I really like the tilting :)
Anyhow RAM is somewhat insufficient because now a days you can see every smartphone with atleast 512MB of RAM.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS is very decent and pretty good looking interface also.
By installing Live Wallpapers the device is awesome.
Other Apps like GO Launcher, Talking tom etc worked fine on this.
Talking about the Battery backup i always believe in one's own usage. Depending on the usage we will get the Battery Backup. In my daily use i used to listen to musci for an hour and watching videos about 20 min and talking for atleast 20 min a day and basic texting and browsing, by performing all these i used to get a battery backup of 2 days. But it didnt go to the bottom but i used to charge it at 30 percent.
So those who wanna experience the Android smartphone i want to recommend this device.
Talking about the Brand this is Samsung, so need to worry about the service.
But when compared to the todays range of Phones, i think people may not prefer this beacuse you can get a lot of features than this now a days at the same price.
Me too sold this device, forgot to say as it is from Samsung u can expect a good resale value also for those who want to upgrade to high end models. Me bought Micromax Canvas 2 A110 after using this.But had a wonderful experience with this Galaxy Y. I came to know everything about the Android OS and etc.
And nothing else to review about this Basic Android Device.
Thanks for reading my review.
