Jazzy Phone with Super AMOLED Display
Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT 19070 is an improvised version of Samsung Galaxy S I9000. It comes with a decent design and brilliant display. Though, it is more stable and smooth to use when compared with its predecessor, upgrading to latest OS would further enhance your experience. While powerful GPU processor delivers an amazing gaming experience, the battery provides reasonable standby time in heavy usage conditions. The sophistication provided by the phone makes it a worthy device to buy.

Dual-core processors are so last year, don`t you think? However, there isn`t anything wrong with that since the advancement of quad-core silicon is now paving the way for dual-core chips to invade the mid-range market. Take the Samsung Galaxy S......
Pros: Great in-call audio quality ; Fluid performance
Cons: Gingerbread at launch ; Camera could have been better
Verdict: Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance has absolutely no major drawbacks, which makes it a splendid mid-range Android device. We are more than content with its design, the hardware has no troubles handling every day tasks with ease, and the in-call......

Overall: I was confused whether to take Moto Atrix 2 or S advance.The reason why I went with S advance is that due to lack of proper support from Moto in India(Samsung are having a good time in India and are releasing phones even before US) and 16 GB internal memory.
It is Usual Samsung design,may be all plasticky but very light weight,and there is not sufficient grip and little slippery on the sides(An case would solve this and of course you would definitely buy a case to protect your near 20000 bubble).
Except the home button all physical buttons are having good tactile response and are placed well.
Notice that 3.5mm audio jack is placed at the bottom of the handset and sometimes irritates when you are listening music you need to keep the phone in bottom up position and then if some notification comes up and when you take it out your pocket and you will be confused a little.
As expected from Samsung,delivers the goods.
No connectivity issues with either network(didn't use 3G) or wifi.
At this price range,the best display you will get.
But the sunlight visibility can be improved(even with full brightness,the display seems to be dim,typical of AMOLED display).
Indoors zero brightness is enough.
Forget that external speaker is there,the output is very low.
The provided earphones are good,may not have bass,but clarity is nice.
Android 2.3 runs without any issues.Have downloaded many apps but didn't lag at all,till the user accessible 512 MB RAM is full.
I am not much into games,but i played Dead Trigger without any issues.It's GPU is same as the S2.I sided with S advance because the processor is latest compared to atrix 2 OMAP 4430 and Novathor architecture are very similar to Exynos.I am satisfied with the processor and the performance of the phone.
pinch to zoom and double tap are working in the browser without any issues.
11 GB is user Accessible,and it spoils you,It supports All most all codecs.Install MX player and you are good to go with even .WEBM format
I didn't convert any videos and I directly copied them directly and plays all 720P without any hiccup,If any format is not supported use MX player SW decoder(H/W decoder saves your battery life).
Watching Videos on this screen is a joy.
Definitely it exceeded my expectations.
good performance in sunlight.
Meets the expectation
There is no zoom functionality(Might be rectified with the next firmware update..Samsung how long will it take to update the phone to ICS,already Jelly Bean is out there)
Don't Expect miracles here,It can last one and half day of moderate usage.On Sync continously in 2G,it was down to 30 to 35% from morning 8:00 to evening 8:00.I used 2x battery saver and it improved battery performance a lot.
I didn't find any page in XDA for this device,and Still not popular in the modding community,Given the processor capability definitely modding will start for this phone).
If your having a wifi connection download dropbox,and instant camera upload in dropbox is awesome.
I didn't keep any memory card,it uses MTP to connect to the computer and don't rely on kies to load multimedia on to the phone,it is as usual CRAPPY.Just Drag and Drop.
I would definitely recommend this product
Update: I am using Indian Jelly Bean Update.Some core functions like Dialler, Contacts, Camera and gallery are lagging.Seems like Samsung have not optimized the update for this phone because I have seen Galaxy duos,a single core A5 run smoother than this phone's dialer and gallery. I am using alternate contacts and dialer apps like Ex-dialer, Go contacts etc to negate that. Zoom function came back. Samsung's added jingle bells are taking up more RAM compared to GB and not allowing to properly mutitask in JB.
There are many custom ROM's and root are available for this phone and Cyanogen MOD is in beta with camcorder not working. Remaining Custom ROM's are Samsung stock based, so RAM issue will be there.
Temple Run 2 lags in both JB and GB. Subway surfers lag in JB only because of less RAM.
So, if you will be content with GB or comfortable with beta custom ROMs, you can buy this device. But better devices are there in Market for almost the same price range like Xperia L.
