Advantages: android OS, social media function, wi-fi,
Disadvantages: alert sound is poor
Samsung Galaxy Y is not as sophisticated as any Iphones but, the functions and other features it is a good alternative. I can say this phone is made for those who look for not that expensive phone but wanted the same features, touch screen, social media features and internet connection functions.
What makes a phone durable for me is, I can used it for a long time. A phone will last if the owner knows how to take care of it, but of course sometimes there are accidents, like it slip to your hand or it got pulled from the charger and fall. These things happened to my phone, I always thoughts it will not work again or some parts are affected by the impact, but still things are the same and it still works fine.
The touch screen thing is the "in" thing for phones right now and this is the main feature of the phone. The messages, contacts, and menu buttons are at the bottom of the first screen. Other features, like games, galleries and downloaded apps, can be seen on the next pages of the screen. There is a Samsung apps store, where you can download directly to the phone the games and apps you like, some are free, some you have pay for it. This is a simple looking phone and it works good for me.
For me it is affordable and worth my money. I can play the games I want, connect to FB, twitter and surf the net.
Everything is fine except the alert sound for messages and call. Even if you put it in a maximum volume the sound is still poor, I have to put it in a vibrate mode just to know I have a message or someone is calling.
Like I've said, it is a good alternative for Iphone, if you don't have the budget yet , you can Samsung Galaxy Y.
Summary: good aternative for Iphone
