Samsung Galaxy Spica (i5700)

 

On the surface the Spica looks like a very competent smartphone, but we're beginning to expect a lot more from manufacturers that take on Google's OS.

Samsung Galaxy Portal i5700 review

 

Can Android 1.5 and black plastic cut it in 2010?

Good battery life ; Bright, responsive screen ; Solid, weighty build ; Surprisingly good camera

Very basic version of Android ; Messy button layout ; Small 1GB microSD card from T-Mobile ; No camera flash

Samsung, the famed Korean jack-of-all-technologies, is having another go at mastering the Android phone scene, after making a bit of a mess of it with last year's original Galaxy.

Samsung I5700 Galaxy Portal review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Portal (as sold by T-Mobile; also known as the Galaxy Lite) is a relatively cheap Android smartphone with an AMOLED screen. It's visually similar to the earlier GT-I7500 Galaxy, but incorporates many positive changes, not least of...

Samsung Galaxy Portal review

 

Samsung's second Android phone, the Galaxy Portal, opens the door to a world of augmented reality. But is it worth entering?

An Android smartphone that doesn’t set the world on fire, but does a solid job for little outlay

Samsung i5700 Galaxy Portal review -

 

The phone is decently priced and fits the hand well

Irritating screen unlock, average camera and elderly-looking version of Android

Samsung Galaxy Portal Review

 

Exclusive to T-Mobile and Three in the UK, Samsung's second endeavour into the Android space is the imaginatively named Galaxy Portal, and it's a refreshing change from the mixed bag of smartphones from Samsung in the past.

This is a budget Android device, reflected in its sub standard 3.2-megapixel camera, lack of internal memory and chunky design. However, it can stand up next to the Galaxy almost as an equal with an improved processor and solid Android performance....
