Samsung I5500 Galaxy 5 review: Corby with brains

 

Don't know what Android is? Don't sweat it. Prepare to want one. The Samsung I5500 Galaxy 5 looks like a Corby, but walks and talks like a smartphone. More importantly though, it's got no problem finding an audience to talk to. With so many Corby...

Quad-band GSM/EDGE, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps ; 2.8" capacitive TFT touchscreen of QVGA resolution, 16M colors ; Android OS v2.1 Eclair ; 600 MHz processor ; 170 MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB), 1GB card included ; 2 megapixel...

Small QVGA screen: not to good for browsing, limited choice of apps ; No multi-touch support ; Poor still imaging and video recording ; No DivX video support ; microSD slot under the battery cover ; No dedicated camera key ; No secondary video-call camera

The Samsung I5500 Galaxy 5 is the future. OK, now, take your time. Laugh it up. But it looks like the term smartphone is about to become meaningless. It won’t be too long before they are all just phones again – like in the good old times. The Samsung...

Samsung Galaxy 5 Review: The Small Android Your Non-Geeky Friends Will Love

Samsung Galaxy 5 - Affordable Android

 

Budget-conscious consumers can now enjoy Android with the Samsung Galaxy 5 which is, at the time of writing, the most affordable one out in the market. Although its features are quite few, functionality is great. This Samsung phone is definitely not...

Affordable price, great functionality

Limited features

Touchscreen phones are now cheaper. Smartphones are now cheaper. Android is now cheaper. Although we love the overall packaging and pricing, we are dispassionate towards the Samsung Galaxy 5. Apart from the abovementioned aspects, it doesn’t feel like...
