Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 is a super cheap Android Smartphone targeted at the entry level market. It runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and is probably the best smartphone for budget tight consumers who want to have a feel of Gingerbread. Samsung Galaxy Y is not a power Android smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S3, but it is a great introductory smartphone. However, you must note that for cheap smartphones there are always tradeoffs. Read on to get the gist.
A Super cheap Gingerbread Smartphone
The Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 comes with Android 2.3, which is a great feat by Samsung considering the price of this smartphone. It features TouchWiz UI with hubs for social networking, music and games, giving you a unique Samsung experience. Samsung Galaxy Y features 830MHz processor and 290MB RAM. With such a RAM/processor combination with Gingerbread, you should not expect anything more than a modest performance from this smartphone.
Like most Android Smartphones it comes preloaded with Google Mobile services and apps like Google Search, GMail, Google Maps, Google Talk, YouTube, and Picasa. More Google, Samsung, and third party apps can be downloaded at the Android Market.
Display & Camera
Expectedly, Samsung Galaxy Y features a modest display; a 3.0-inch capacitive touchscreen with QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) resolution. The display is low resolution, but keep in mind that this is a super affordable smartphone. So, it is unfair to expect the same view quality as the Samsung Galaxy S II.
The display is not the only tradeoff, the camera is also modest. Samsung Galaxy Y has a built-in 2 megapixel camera with QVGA video recording.
Data and Network support
Aside offering Gingerbread at a super affordable price, Samsung Galaxy Y will also shine when it comes to its internet speed and impressive connectivity at an affordable price. It is a 3G phone with support for high speed internet up to 7.2Mbps download. It also has a hotspot feature which enables you setup a Wi-Fi hotspot to share your fast 3G internet with other devices.
Samsung Galaxy Y also features Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP and USB.
