Samsung Galaxy Y- Handset review

Samsung Galaxy Y Android smartphone is designed for younger generation/students which offer Touch screen display, social networking apps, 3G connectivity and multimedia functions @ affordable price.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Y in August 2011, alongside the QWERTY keyboard based Galaxy Y Pro and Samsung Galaxy W mobile phones.

Samsung has stated the “Y” relates to ‘Young’, where these are entry models or strategic models for emerging markets or a younger audience, with a more sensitive to price attached.

The Galaxy Y has a 3-inch QVGA 320×240 TFT LCD screen, whilst being powered by a 832MHz processor, with a 2 megapixel camera and a 2GB microSD card, running from the Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS with the Samsung TouchWiz overlay to that platform.

Galaxy Y Mobile Features & Specifications:

  • ARM 823 MHz CPU/Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 3G 900/2100 MHz, HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps
  • 3” inch (320×240 pixels) Touchscreen
  • Google Android v2.3 (Ginger bread version) Operating System
  • 2 Megapixel Camera with Zoom & Video Recording
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 g/n
  • Free 2GB Micro SD card included
  • 3.5mm Earphone Socket/jack
  • Bluetooth v3.0
  • Li-Ion 1200 mAh Battery
  • Preloaded Apps: Facebook, Gmail, Gtalk, Twitter (differs from country to country)


I recently purchased this handset for Rs 7150; I use it with a Tata Docomo connection (in India) without activating their 3G service.

I have downloaded more than 20 Apps from Android market (now Google play), I am happy with the handset’s features and performance, but sometimes I found it a bit difficult to type on this virtual key board cause of the small 3 inch screen.

Overall I feel that this handset is “value for money”.
