Samsung Galaxy Apollo Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Apollo is Samsung's follow up from the Samsung Galaxy S. Being sure not to overlap the target audiences, the Samsung Galaxy Apollo is aimed more toward the low to mid tier customers that the Galaxy S does not reach out to. Packing a...

The Samsung Galaxy Apollo is truly an average phone that fits right in between power users and regular cell phone users. It's interesting to note that in the U.S. market, Samsung is currently planning a very similar phone, the Samsung Gem, and one has...

Finally, proof that a smartphone need not be ludicrously expensive to effectively run the Android OS. Yes, you read that correctly -- Samsung is bringing affordability and functionality to the masses with its I5801 Galaxy Apollo (otherwise known as the...

Samsung Galaxy 580 review: The Galaxy 580 Android smartphone doesn't skimp on too many features, but is not great value when compared to the competiti

 

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

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

The definitive Samsung Galaxy Apollo Review

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

There's no physical camera button, with the only other blemishes on the Galaxy Apollo's all-glass front panel being a tiny proximity sensor near the earphone

Samsung Galaxy Apollo I5801

 

This budget Android touchscreen smartphone ticks many a boxes but misses a few too.

Good Value ; Responsive touchscreen ; Good battery life ; Surprisingly snappy

Low resolution screen ; Small screen ; No camera flash ; Slightly chunky design

There's no shutter button for the 3.15-megapixel camera, nor is there a flash, but otherwise the I5801 is reasonably well kitted out with the top edge home to a headphone jack and microUSB socket and there's a miscroSD slot under the battery cover for...

Samsung Galaxy Apollo review

 

The Samsung Galaxy 580 Android phone has a similar look and feel to the Samsung Galaxy 5, with a distinctive, rounded design and a curved back making it comfortable to hold. The gloss black finish is not particularly attractive though, and the Galaxy...

Samsung Galaxy Apollo I5801 review

 

It may have updated software, but the Apollo lacks its predecessor's excellent AMOLED screen and it feels far cheaper.

Samsung Galaxy Apollo GT-i5801 review

 

The Android-based Samsung Galaxy Apollo GT-i5801's slick touchscreen, reasonably powerful processor and impressive multimedia features help it rise above the moderately priced smart-phone competition

Responsive touchscreen with multi-touch support ; Fairly long battery life ; Good camera ; Impressive video playback

Chunky design ; Screen is on the small side

The Samsung Galaxy Apollo GT-i5801 is one of the best moderately priced Android handsets we've come across. The touchscreen is superbly responsive, the processor has enough grunt to keep everything running reasonably smoothly, and Samsung has added...
