I’m happy that Android powered devices are becoming more affordable all the time. Samsung’s Galaxy 3 comes with a price tag of Rs. 12,300 (MRP) but is available in certain locations for Rs. 11,900 (MOP). It might not as cheap as Spice’s Android...

Samsung Galaxy 3 and Galaxy Apollo review: Galactic twins

 

Congratulations, it's twins! The Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 and I5801 Galaxy Apollo are both in our office and they're keen to show everybody that Android is great for lower mid-range phones too as well as high-end phones.

Display resolution is too low; poor sunlight legibility ; Editing complex documents is very slow ; No free GPS navigation solution ; No Flash support for the web browser ; Video recording is poor ; The all-plastic body is a real fingerprint magnet

Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 preview: First look

 

Smartphones for the masses is what Samsung want and Bada alone won't be enough perhaps to get them there. Why not the Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 then? A mid-range Android phone with a custom paintjob...

Android is infiltrating the lower smartphone ranks. Mission objective: cut down on expensive hardware features and provide a robust experience. The Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 does just that. The hardware won't make it a flagship, but with 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS,...

There is nothing AMOLED-y or Hummingbird-y about our Samsung Galaxy 3 here, but on paper it has all the prerequisites for a compelling mid-range Android phone. Seeing is believing in our case, so let's charge ahead and examine the TouchWiz-ed Samsung...

Samsung Galaxy 3 i5800

 

The Samsung Galaxy 3 i5800 is the latest addition to the Galaxy line of phones. With a 3.2 inch touchscreen and a 3.15 MP camera, it isn't amongst the highest end phones, but it definitely packs a punch.

Samsung has really jumped into the Android world head first and this latest addition shows that they aren't stopping anytime soon.

Samsung Galaxy 580 Android phone

 

The Samsung Galaxy 580 Android phone is the third Galaxy-branded smartphone to hit the Australian market, following the flagship Samsung Galaxy S, and...

Android 2.2, compact design, capacitive touchscreen, Swype text input

Small screen, overpriced compared to alternatives, excessive Optus customisation

The Samsung Galaxy 580 Android smartphone is compact and feature packed, but it remains overpriced compared to alternatives, particularly the excellent LG Optimus One.

Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5800 review

 

Galaxy S style on an entry-level budget

Extremely responsive screen ; Multi-touch zooming ; Feature-packed camera ; Great media and video performance

No camera flash ; Awful Orange widgets & apps ; No trackpad or optical sensor ; Low-res video recording

The Galaxy Apollo is currently available on Orange contracts starting from £20 a month, and at that price its classy (Samsung) UI and superb capacitive touchscreen obliterate the competition.
