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 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...

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 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.
