Samsung Galaxy W I8150 preview: First look

 

With the latest of Android and TouchWiz, the Samsung Galaxy W I8150 takes a support-and-assist role to the company's flagship – the S II. The Galaxy W is powered by the same 1.4GHz processor we know from the Galaxy S Plus...

Bottom line is the Galaxy W is a Galaxy S Plus in disguise: it looks good but doesn’t come with any SuperAMOLED awesomeness. It’s a modern and understated Android to offer some high-end services on a midrange budget

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 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

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

Expert review by:

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

 

The Galaxy W is one of the first handsets to debut Samsung's new naming strategy, and according to the alphabetical structure, the Galaxy W is a 'high quality' smartphone, perfect for those seeking a balance between style and performance.

The phone itself measures in at 115.8 x 59 x 11.5mm, and a 1.4GHz processor paired with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). This powers the handset's 3.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen, which will come dressed in Samsung's TouchWiz UI. With this custom Android skin...
