Samsung Galaxy Y (GT-S5360) Review


Budget Android devices are gaining popularity as the ‘high-end' specifications are finally starting to trickle down to phones under Rs.10,000. Samsung's latest Galaxy Y is one such example of an affordable, yet very much user friendly Android phone....

The Galaxy Y goes for a street price of Rs.7,350, which puts it on the same lines as the Micromax A70 and the Spice Mi-350n. You might find it for a little lower in places like Delhi, however. If you want switchable back covers, then it'll cost you an...

Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 review: Everyone's invited


The Samsung Galaxy Y is a smartphone approved for all audiences. Perhaps in hindsight, our Galaxy Note review should've been rated PG. But well yeah, we're always wiser in hindsight. Anyway, you don't just wake up one morning wanting a superphone like...

Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA ; 3” 256K-color QVGA TFT touchscreen ; ARMv6 830MHz processor, 290MB user available RAM ; Android OS v2.3.5 (Gingerbread) with TouchWiz UI ; 160MB of internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot,...

Low screen resolution limits choice of apps ; No touchscreen haptics ; Fixed focus camera ; No secondary camera ; No camera flash, no dedicated camera key ; QVGA video recording @ 15fps ; No earphones in the bundle ; No Adobe Flash support

Y stands for entry-level phones in the company's recent naming system. Phones for youths and emerging markets. The Galaxy Y is at the bottom of the Android food chain. It joins the likes of the Galaxy Mini, the Gio and the Fit at the wide base of a...

Samsung S5360 Galaxy Y preview: First look


Smartphones at parent-friendly prices mean that a kid's first phone can be a smartphone, just like dad's. The Samsung S5360 Galaxy Y is part of Samsung's youth-oriented lineup and promises the Android experience at a bargain.

Samsung Galaxy Y Review


Affordable, Pleasant design

Low ppi count makes screen look pixelated, Subpar camera

There isn’t much that piqued our interest while handling the Samsung Galaxy Y , but it is a decent low-end Android handset from a brand name manufacturer. With the patterned silvery back cover and mirrored front we can even say it’s a looker, which...

Samsung Galaxy Y Preview


Samsung keeps churning out smartphones as if there's no tomorrow, stuffing the channels with sometimes marginally different handsets six months after it introduced the previous crop.

Samsung Galaxy Y


24 August 2011 – On the affordable spectrum, the Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro were made official as well. Y stands for youth, and that is who the phones are aimed at, and both devices come with lower price points. Galaxy Y runs on Android 2.3 OS skinned...

Affordable; Modest specifications

Uninspired design

As far as budget smartphones, Samsung is certainly heading down the right direction with the Galaxy Y, though execution could have been improved. For the asking price of RM 499, it is probably not much reason for us to rag on it, since it certainly is...

Samsung has undoubtly targeted today’s youth with Galaxy Young. It is the best choice for young children looking for their first ever smartphone and Galaxy Young will be the best choice considering it’s cheap price tag of $150 only and an attractive...

Samsung Galaxy Y Netphone Edition | Review


SMART had already churned major waves of curiosity when it launched its first Netphone unit, the ZTE 701, last September. We reviewed the Netphone 701 and even gave one away. Well, now comes the younger brother to the Netphone set, and we're putting it...

Great value for its price, offering the Gingerbread experience, if you can call it that, at a feature phone price point ; Pretty good build quality (for its price) ; Reasonably long battery life ; Did I already mention the price

Display doesn’t do justice to the Galaxy line ; Paltry 2-megapixel bare-bones camera (yawn) ; Did I already mention the display? Well, this time, the tiny size of the display

In which case, I hereby declare the Samsung Galaxy Y to be quite a lot of bang for the buck. You get the Samsung build quality, the Android Gingerbread experience, and all the basics, including satellite navigation and Facebook connectivity. And of...

Samsung Galaxy Y review: A cheap as chips Android phone, let down by a low resolution screen


Provided you don't expect it to effectively compete with more expensive phones, the Samsung Galaxy Y is great value for money. A tiny screen and average battery life do dampen its appeal, but the Galaxy Y remains a good budget smartphone.

Competitive price, Attractive design, Good features list

Tiny screen, Average battery life
