Samsung Galaxy Pocket

So here’s another entry-level phone from Samsung which also runs Android OS. I’ve seen this phone in flesh too and as usual with their designs, it’s similar to Samsung Galaxy Y and the others. But of course it’s “pocket size”

So far, I think it’s plus against the others is that it’s memory which is 3 Gigabytes of memory. For an App lover, that’s indeed the best that they offered. It costs around 6k to 8k php. Finally, the whole information of specs:

Overall, I think Galaxy Pocket isn’t much but not too bad for a person seeking an android phone that’s not too bulky to bring.

Samsung Galaxy Y

Samsung Galaxy Y or Samsung Galaxy S5360 is a level-entry phone from Samsung that’s one of the most bought lately (because it’s price is highly affordable)

It’s specs is somehow similar to Samsung Gio and Samsung Galaxy Mini along with other Samsung Galaxy phones. It’s price ranges from 4k to 5k (about $120 to $150). The specs aren’t bad as well since you can play games (although I was told some games do not work) Although the screen is small, plus the memory isn’t much. We all know how Android phones tend to depend on memory of the phone, so if you plan to download and install many applications this phone is not for you. Here is the complete information of the specs:

Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660

I recently blogged about Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, and now I will be blogging about Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660. It’s not a new model but a relative of mine wanted me to know if it was good. So, here’s our breakdown.

Samsung Galaxy Gio

Samsung Galaxy Gio

Samsung GALAXY Gio is a mid-range Android 2.2 offering which has a 3.2″ 320×480 pixels display, and it has the same 800MHz chipset of the Galaxy Ace. Other features include a 3MP camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, microSD card slot and FM radio.

Specs:

Specs are not comparable to new Samsung Galaxy devices (including Samsung Galaxy Mini 2) it’s somehow near Samsung Galaxy Mini. It comes with Froyo 2.2 which is quite outdated. Actually, I haven’t heard about it much in the mobile scene as much as Samsung Galaxy Y or the minis so this is why when my relative asked me, I didn’t know about it.

Price

I researched through dbgadgets.multiply.com and its price is 10,100 PHP. Something near the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, in my opinion, I would rather get the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 because of the 4 gig internal memory but then again maybe this phone has other good features.

Overall

This phone is a-okay. But then again you should research more. According to websites with reviews I’ve read, like common Samsung smartphones that are currently out (which are within the budget) it does not have a very good camera, what fun is Instagram if your phone isn’t good in terms of picture taking? 🙂

 

Instagram doesn’t work on Samsung Galaxy Y?

According to a friend Samsung Galaxy Y cannot run Instagram for some reason, up to now I am on a research if there’s any workaround to make it work because I was supposedly going to get this smartphone for my Dad (if only Unionbank wasn’t a pain)

It’s quite disappointing, because it worked on my Samsung Galaxy Mini that is running on Cyanogenmod 7 rom. I have it setup to 732 mhz only while Samsung Galaxy Y is running on Gingerbread (I think) with 800 mhz. Also, I was told that Temple Run does not work either on it. That’s a heart breaker, isn’t it? :/ The specs are pretty close to the mini’s, in fact a bit better but how come, right? It could be with the rom? Sadly, it doesn’t have a Cyanogenmod rom for it yet Upon research, you can now install Cyanogenmod 7 to Samsung Galaxy Y! Maybe then, these apps said to be not working will be running then.

Update: According to Sao Paolo who commented, Instagram now works with Samsung Y. I asked my friend to test and it did work 🙂
