Samsung Galaxy W
Advantages: Relatively cheap, good features
Disadvantages: Not that reliabe
I've had my Samsung Galaxy W GT-18150 Phone for around a year now and overall i have to say it is a very good smart phone. Although most people tend to go for the IPhone models I didn't want to spend that sort of money and therefore looked for a cheaper alternative that would give me similar benefits. I searched online and found the Samsung Galaxy W. It costs me around £23 pounds per month, which is considerably cheaper than other competitors and it has some cracking features on it.
It has a 5 mega pixel camera which is easy to use and takes good quality pictures and also produces reasonable video footage also. The LCD screen is 3.7 inches which is a fair size but i understand is smaller than other phones on the market. The apps available on it are great too - my particular favourites being Airport City and Battlefriends!
On the negative side I did have to before Christmas send my phone of for repair. This was because it would not turn on past the 'Samsung' loading screen and would not charge. I sent it off and got it back within five days fully fixed. Since then i haven't had anymore problems. However, saying that i have googled the fault and the general advice is that these phones can get hot and are prone to the problems that i have experienced. Baring this is mind i would have to sum up by saying it is a good phone, especially for the price, but it may not be the most reliable in the long run.
Summary: A good cheap alternative to an IPhone
