    We`ve now updated our review to reflect our findings with a fully working version of the Samsung Galaxy Y - including a price drop to under £90. Samsung wants to cater for a range of users, not just those wanting the biggest, fastest and most media hungry phones and the Samsung Galaxy Y looks to bring functionality to the low-end range. The `Y` stands for `Young`, which clearly signals the market this phone is targeted at. The Galaxy Y sell...

    Pros: Compact, Cheap, Good range of apps, Galaxy branding will appeal,

    Cons: Low resolution, small screen, Poor camera, Battery life suspect.,

    Verdict: We`ll bring you our final verdict when we get a fully-working review sample of the Galay Y in....

    24 August 2011 u2013 On the affordable spectrum, the Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro were made official as well. Y stands for youth, and that is who the phones are aimed at, and both devices come with lower price points. Galaxy Y runs on Android 2.3 OS skinned......

    Pros: Affordable; Modest specifications

    Cons: Uninspired design

    Verdict: As far as budget smartphones, Samsung is certainly heading down the right direction with the Galaxy Y, though execution could have been improved. For the asking price of RM 499, it is probably not much reason for us to rag on it, since it certainly i...

    `Y` stands for `Young` in Samsung`s Galaxy-branded mobile universe and this diddy handset is clearly designed to fit into tiny hands and pockets. You don`t need a very big wallet to own the Samsung Galaxy Y. It sits firmly at the budget end of the Android smart phone spectrum -- it`s free for around £10 a month on a two-year contract, from £60 on pay as you go or £120 SIM-free. Are you young and easily impressed? Yes? Good, you`ll need t...

    Pros: Cheap to buy,MicroSD card slot,

    Cons: Poor quality display,Low-power chip,Very small size limits its appeal,

    "Y" means "Young" in Samsung`s Galaxy vernacular, and that`s where this budget Android is very much aimed. The budget Android space is rapidly getting more crowded, with the likes of the HTC Wildfire S, the Orange San Francisco 2, T-Mobile`s Energy and Vivacity, and even the new Huawei Ascend G300 all fighting for your pennies, so any new handset needs to be a bit special.

    Pros: Android, Wifi, Apps, Looks, Touch,Cost.

    Cons: Making calls, receiving calls - Nightmare,Ram.

    Overall: I got carried away by the pros i mentioned but sorry, its a phone it should allow its users to make calls and receive easily. Damn the call related graphics etc sucks, they just slow down the phone and the proximity sensor and screen lock with calling graphics create a night mare scenario to use this device as a phone. Very dissapointed that they overlooked the basic functionality of a phone.
