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 (Three UK)

 

Pick a screen size, a set of specs and a price point, and chances are Samsung has an Android smartphone that fits the bill. As the leading Android manufacturer, Samsung has a ridiculous number of ph...

On the video side, we were also pretty impressed with the footage produced by the Galaxy S Advance. The device shoots video at up to 1280x720 resolution, at 29 frames per second. This frame rate stays constant even in poorer lighting conditions, though...

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

Not content with adding the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3 handsets to its flagship smartphone lineup, Samsung is looking to capitalise on its leading Android line with the Samsung Galaxy S Advance, a mobile phone that arcs back to the original model,...

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...
