Verdict

Samsung Galaxy Y is designed by Samsung for the younger generation. It is very much affordable and has many good features that we can find only in high priced smartphones. It has good connectivity options, decent processor speed and ample external storage memory. Although it supports 3G networks, it still doesn’t have a front camera which is a minus. Apart from that it is a good phone to buy.

AWESOME but with little defect
17 Oct 2011 By SureshKumar Kollapuri On flipkart.com

Hey Guys..nnI who want to enter into andriod world for the first time in an economic way this beauty is the best thing..i have bought from flipkart recently this beauty for my sister gift ..and might be iam the first customer which ordered first this item...nnand iam going to compare this item with my samsung galaxy ace which is now 13k INR..nnhere we go what's advantahe and disadvantage..nnAdvantage:nntalking about processor speed and memory(RAM) and phone memory were both in same models..this is extraordinary @ pricennsize is 3 inches its quite good @pricenncam quality with 2mp its quite good when compare to other phones which have 2 mp... nngalaxy ace consists of 5mp and led flash too and 3.5 inches and extra 200 adreno seperate processor for gaming this are the difference between ace and this beauty other features all same in both...nnneven u had geo tagging too..nnperformance is good.. @pricennlisten songs MP3 in this phone quite awesome & rocking effects.. I assure even in my galaxy ace also i didnt get this effect..so if u r music lovers go with this one..Iam guarantee..but buy good earphone ..what samsung provided earphones is not at all good... :)nnnDesighn & grip is awesome its look like small iphone ..gauranteed..nnnDisadvantages:nnScreen size resolution is is little bit low .samsung had failed in this issue if this has been lifted little bit more Iam sure nobody can beat this phone.......but its ok its not at all that much worst if u think about the price i already said this is an entry level androiders especially for students and youth @ pocket money..best...nnnwhile typing i found little bit difficult to type bcoz due to smaller screen letters were small ..so my big fingers were not suited for typing comfortably.. :) dont worry u can download gingerbread keyboard from market ..it suits well and good for big fingers like me..:)nnliterally if u want to feel a really android experience u need to go for more than equal to 3.5 inches screen...nnnnConclusion: I suggest If u r economic..dont miss this phone this is really really good ... u cant get this type of features for this price ..6 to 7k....nnnHuman doesnt satisfies .......... :) he wants more...& more...nnRegards nSuresh Kumar Kollapuri

Brilliant budget Phone From Samsung
23 Oct 2011 By Revanth P On flipkart.com

Excellent Phone from Samsung. Don`t worry about Flipkart delivery; its excellent!!! Coming to the review of this phonenPros:nAll the features!nnCons:nCamera nScreen(cant ask a bigger screen for this price)nnReview:nnnOS & UI: Excellent speed, no lags, no hangs etc........ TouchWiz rocks; it has 7 homescreens etc...nnGoogle Maps: Cant tell in words, it locks my position so Fassst!!!! WoW, pinching to zoom and panning around is absolutely smooth. For this price range its more than expected. Digital Compass also works goodnCamera: good for 2MP, we can use Camera 360 free for more features!!nnMusic and Video: Excellent music player with many technology's like DNSe, WOW HD™, SRS CS Headphone™(5.1 channel surround) which are breathtakingly brilliant for this price tag!We can download many equalizers from Android Market which are available for android 2.3(only) .I use MoboPlayer for better video playback and more format support!!nnMisc:nIt has Bluetooth 3.0 HS which is used by Galaxy S2!!!!(for 7k!)nIt has WiFi 802.11 b/g/"N"; yes it has N, no other device in this price range has NnIt has 832 MHZ processor, 300MB RAM processor, Broadcom Videocore IV GPUnNeocore : 38.0 FPS nQuadrant: 951(wow more than Galaxy S)nnWe cannot say that the screen size is small. Before people were happy with 2.8 inch screen on Corby paying 8000 bucks!! with no smart features!!nnWe cannot find a single negative point that would blow us away from buying this phone!
