Affordable; Decent specifications

Samsung Galaxy W; Power Plug; Charger; Micro-USB cable

As far as mid-range smartphones go, the Samsung Galaxy W does everything right on our checklist; decent specifications and hardware with a relatively modest price tag to match. For something under a grand, this device is hard to pass up, for the...

Samsung Galaxy W review

 

A mid-range Android 2.3 smartphone one step below the Galaxy S2

Speedy processor ; Compact, rounded, comfortable design ; Impressive camera results with flash ; Implements Android 2.3 well ; Fast, fluid browser

Narrowed display ; Slow autofocus on 5MP camera ; Poor VGA forward-facing camera ; Flimsy plastic back panel ; Poor speaker and audio output

Strong in some areas, weak in others, the Samsung Galaxy W is a mash-up of the best and slightly below par offerings on the mid-range smartphone market for those users not yet ready to make the jump to the high-end and costly Samsung Galaxy S2.

Samsung Galaxy W pictures and hands-on

 

W stands for Wonder if you're talking the Samsung Galaxy talk , and the thing that Pocket-lint wondered, when we spent our hands-on time with it at IFA 2011, is whether people would buy it instead of the R or not at all. A first glance at the spec...

Samsung Galaxy W I8150

 

Flying the Samsung-branded flag for the mid-range smartphone market is the Samsung Galaxy W, a handset also known as the Samsung GT-I8150.

Speedy processor ; Compact, rounded, comfortable design ; Impressive camera results with flash ; Implements Android 2.3 well ; Fast, fluid browser

Narrowed display ; Slow autofocus on 5MP camera ; Poor VGA forward-facing camera ; Flimsy plastic back panel ; Poor speaker and audio output

On the design front, the high, central positioning of the lens makes shooting content a tricky task when trying to avoid unwieldy fingertips sneaking into shots. Next Page: Media

Samsung Galaxy W i8150

 

If you haven't got the dough for Samsung's Galaxy S2, then the more affordable Galaxy W is definitely wroth a look.

Great screen ; Fast performance ; Good camera ; Affordable price tag

TouchWiz UI looks a bit flat ; Build quality could be better

Samsung Galaxy W hands-on

 

The Samsung Galaxy W Android smart phone aims to appeal to those who can't afford the Galaxy S2. Despite a lower-quality screen and a chunkier design, it still looks decent.

Affordable price ; Decent construction ; Powerful Android software

Fairly boring design ; Screen doesn't have a great resolution

The Samsung Galaxy W seems like a decent smart phone for the money. It may not have the sleek appearance and beautiful screen of the S2, but it offers a satisfying taste of Android goodness for a more affordable price.

Samsung Galaxy W Review
