Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance review: While-u-wait

 

Here's one to keep you busy while you wait for the Galaxy S III. One that may help the original Galaxy S finally take the hint and hang up its boots. The Galaxy S Advance is the next in a string of sequels looking to get the best afterburn out of...

Samsung Galaxy S Advance Review

 

Dual-core processors are so last year, don't you think? However, there isn't anything wrong with that since the advancement of quad-core silicon is now paving the way for dual-core chips to invade the mid-range market. Take the Samsung Galaxy S...

Great in-call audio quality ; Fluid performance

Gingerbread at launch ; Camera could have been better

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance has absolutely no major drawbacks, which makes it a splendid mid-range Android device. We are more than content with its design, the hardware has no troubles handling every day tasks with ease, and the in-call...

Samsung Galaxy S Advance review

 

A mid-range Galaxy smartphone to impress Android fans

Zippy dual-core CPU ; Intuitive UI ; Robust image editing ; All-round strong performer ; Excellent price

No Android 4.0 ICS ; Poor light management on camera ; Echo to calls ; Weak connections ; Unreliable video abilities

Entering an area of the market filled with competition, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance sets itself apart on a hardware front more than on the software side of things.

A good mid-range handset, but it needs a price reduction to make it a more attractive buy.

Great AMOLED screen, Speedy dual core processor, Good camera

can buy better handsets for similar money, Runs older Android V3.2 Gingerbread

Samsung Galaxy S Advance review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is a souped-up version of the Galaxy S that looks like a smaller S2 but packs a curved Super AMOLED screen. Its specs won't blow your socks off, but they're not bad if you're in the market for a mid-range pay-up-front...

Dual-core chip ; Slick 4-inch Super AMOLED screen ; MicroSD card slot

Android Gingerbread not Ice Cream Sandwich ; Plasticky backplate

The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is a solid addition to the Galaxy line-up. There's nothing about it that we haven't seen elsewhere, and if you can afford a pay-monthly contract, you'd be better off shelling out for the more powerful Galaxy S2. But as a...

Review – Samsung Galaxy S Advance

 

Combining high-end specs with a budget orientated smartphone is pretty hard, but Samsung has managed to pull it off with the Galaxy S Advance, an Android smartphone solely based on the original Galaxy S which was announced back in 2010.

The S Advance is nothing special, but it is a decent Android smartphone packed with a load of helpful features such as a bright screen and a decent camera. If you fancy the Galaxy S2 or S3, but you’re not keen on the size, then this could be the phone...
