Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores


Yep, you read that right. Affordable and dual core wouldn't normally belong in the same sentence. In 2011. And you don't need to press fast forward. Just sit back and enjoy. There's a lot stewing in the industry's pot and we think the place smells of...

Samsung I9103 Galaxy R review: Riding shotgun


Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support, 4.2" 16M-color SC-LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution; Scratch-resistant glass, Android OS v2.3.3 with TouchWiz 4 launcher, 1 GHz dual-core...

SC-LCD has poor black levels, Tegra 2 falls slightly behind Exynos in CPU and GPU performance, No dedicated camera key, Non-hot-swappable microSD card

The Samsung Galaxy R I9103 stops a few paces from the top in Samsung's Android lineup, but you can tell that the R&D for the top dogs has trickled down the ranks. The camera quality when compared to other Galaxy models has definitely improved, if you...

Samsung I9103 Galaxy R preview: First look


The Galaxy S lineup is no stranger to versioning - the original Galaxy S relied on half a dozen different editions to achieve its market success. Its successor will obviously take a similar path as we just got its first body double in the face of the...

Samsung Galaxy R Review


Beautiful display, Great in-call sound quality, Good battery life, Dual-core processor

Priced too close to the Galaxy S II, Cannot shoot 1080p video

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy R is one impressive smartphone that offers plenty of processing power packed up in one pretty slim body. It stands out with its great 4.2-inch display, and the in-call sound quality that it delivers is way above the...

Samsung Galaxy R Preview


The Samsung Galaxy R (also known as I9103) is the first handset to walk in the shoes of the Samsung Galaxy S II. A slightly stripped down version of Samsung's flagship, it wears similar looks, packs an equally powerful core and only downgrades the...

Samsung Galaxy R: Stripped Down Galaxy S II


A review of the second best Samsung has to offer it's Android fans, the Samsung Galaxy R. Is this stripped down version of the Galaxy S II worth purchasing? Let's find out as we take a look at the design, user interface, features and performance of...

The Samsung Galaxy R has very few flaws, the only major flaw is the weak camera. Otherwise, the Galaxy R stands as an excellent phone on its own merits. But, the Galaxy S II is a much better phone, and if you have the extra $50 to spare, then please go...

Samsung Galaxy R i9103 Second Review ( Price Drop Version)


We got over a thousand requests to review the Samsung Galaxy R especially after the price drop. The device originally launched at Rs. 27000, just a little shy of the price of the Galaxy S2, but now the phone is priced at a mere 20,800 , also available...

Samsung Galaxy R Unboxing and Review


The Samsung Galaxy R is the company's attempt at making their success story with the Samsung Galaxy Slcd move over to the higher segment. Read on through to understand why we don't recommend this device.

The device is a great alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S2, but not at this price range(Available for Rs. 27,000). It offers far less features to justify just a 1.5-2k price gap between the R and the S2. Our recommendation is DON’T BUY THE GALAXY R,...

Samsung Galaxy R


If you're keen to get your hands on the Galaxy S2 but think it's too expensive - the Samsung Galaxy R could be just what you're looking for.

It may have been launched as a 'cheaper' alternative to Samsung's 2011 flagship, but the Galaxy R sports similar specs. It comes with Nvidia's 1GHz dual-core processor, compared to the S2's 1.2GHz chipset. You'll also find a smaller 4.2-inch Super LCD...
