Y is good for WHY? Why this phone?
I definitely love it. Its affordable with no fussy. If you are new to touch screen phone and android like me, it's good for first time user.
At a glance, it is affordable with modest specifications but a bit uninspired design. At the first time I see it, it is designed for the budget-conscious and first time users in mind as an introduction from samsung to the global customers.
The Samsung Galaxy Y comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) allowing users to enjoy a variety of home-screen widgets as well as a Flash-enabled browser. Samsung's TouchWiz interface is plastered on top of the operating system give the ability to tweak menus and widgets to your heart's content. Included is also Samsung's proprietary software which can quickly access games, social-networking applications and music services.
Its 2-megapixel camera is really minimum these days. At best, it is best for snapping photos and recording short clips suitable to upload to social networking sites like Facebook.
Basic connectivity features such as WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth 3.0 are present. There is Samsung Kies, which can be easy use to browse phone contents on laptop or computer.
As far as budget smartphones, Samsung is certainly heading down the right direction with the Galaxy Y, though execution could have been improved. There is no reason to rag on it, since it certainly is one of the more affordable offerings out there, with that kind of specifications to boot.
The exterior look have catch my eyes when I passing by one of mobile phone shop at one of the hypermarket in my hometown. It just hypnotize me to stop by and to hold it for a while. How lighter it was compare to previous series. The housing and body are much sleeker and slimmer with more large curve in radius at every edges is definitely stylish and modern. Thanks to the owner which provide on hand testing for every phone model in his store.
The qwerty style keyboard makes it easy to text with speed. The navigation button is interactive even for a newbies. The square pad in the middle allow you to move and scroll through options easily like a mouse or laptop touch pad. Is just like a computer keyboard been squeeze into half palm size. Nevertheless this qwerty style keyboard has become a popular phenomena in mobile phone technology.
The 5 Mega Pixels camera is a part of major attraction. You ca also set up the range of quality of the image taken from your camera. This options appropriate in-term of memory space usage. The highest setting will eat your space a lot. Let just say I like medium setting. You can segregate the pictures into files of your choice or easy send or upload to your Facebook or any social networks that you join on the internet. Walla... that cool.
Some say, the battery is less in performance. My friends always complaining regarding the withstand. For me, it is simple and understand the technical. The battery will last long if you use it less. But, if you continuously running programs and use it for watching movies, playing games or surfing internet. For sure any gadget with battery on this earth will run out of power faster.
I'm not an expert photographer, but I'm willing to give a layman review as a user that love compact camera.
This camera introduce user friendly in function, application and also the position of every buttons. You don't need to read in and out from the manual given to operate this camera and catch a picture like a pro. With a Super HAD CCD 12.1 Megapixel sensor, although it is just a basic supply compare to the other latest camera in the market, it can meet your basic demand and give you good quality picture without any distortion.
With 4 x optical zoom and face recognition, it ease you to capture detail and meet quality of the image you catch without need to propelling and adjusting the lens still, you will get the shot pretty easy and fast. I felt this camera performs very well no matter good or bad weather.
Compact, small and slim feature can save you space and easy to carry around.
You can than plug-in to your Desktop or Laptop and can be view through television set. An excellent buy and a great bargain and a perfect pocket sized digital camera.
The overall package is really value for your money. This laptop running on 2.0GHz processor with 4GB RAM can minimize or even prevent lagging during running of multiple program or software simultaneously. Means that this laptop is build for multitask.
With 500GB hard disk space, you will never have a problem with the amount of disk space to save something. You may divide your your space into partition. Typically into 2 partition, 1st is for your system and 2nd is for you files or folder or something important. 500GB is more than enough.
Another thing I love is the looks; black is my favorite. With big keyboard button, this will ease for typing task. This also introduce comfort. Slim and techy look with make me proud to have this laptop by my side.
2.8kg is it still easy to carry around, but technology grow. This does not bother me a bit. 15.6" screen is very appropriate to run multiple task and increase visibility. I must, this laptop is really value for money.
