Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 Android Smart Phone

The new Samsung naming scheme which establishes five separate Galaxy classes depending on features and specifications ranging from high end smart phones to entry level smart phones has categorized the new Galaxy S5360 Android smart phone as ‘young’. Whether young or not, I’m positive this device has admirers and the most appealing aspect of it is its advanced features such as Android v2.3 Gingerbread operating system at a very affordable price. I have previously reviewed phones stuck with Android v2.2 Froyo operating system termed as high end; now, if you really think Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 deserves the ‘young’ label, I wonder how you’ll label devices from other manufacturers.

During its release, Samsung did also introduceGalaxy W ; an advanced version of the Galaxy series  Androids placed in the middle range category. I’ll appreciate Galaxy W for a very strong 1.4GHz processor compared to an 832MHz processor found on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360; however, they both run the same Android v2.3 Gingerbread operating system, for this reason, we expect both handsets to support same applications although at variant execution speed. If you really need an Android powered smart phone but limited by the price tag, I suggest getting Samsung Galaxy Y S5360; you’ll find all the features associated with Gingerbread that can successfully be executed by a modest processor.
UnlikeGalaxy M Pro B7800 which was also unveiled on the same day, Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 boasts of a slightly larger 3.0 inch LCD touch screen, 0.34 inch bigger than that ofGalaxy M Pro B7800.  In addition, it has a compact candybar form factor featuring several colors to choose from depending on your preference. On top of the above pros, Galaxy Y S5360 users will enjoy SWYPE technology allowing them to type very fast without moving their fingers. A 2.0-megapixel camera is the main disappointment on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 handset, but if need a more advanced megapixel camera, be prepared dig deeper into your pocket.
