Summary: This was a birthday present for my daughter and she loves it. (Her only gripe is that it seems some games can't be downloaded, but then it is a phone and not a games console.) On the whole, an excellent phone.
Summary: Ive had this phone for almost a year, mainly watching How It's Made on you tube and looking at wikipedia on google. It is a good design but there are a lot of malfunctions- apps like youtube suddenly freeze and screen turns black, sometimes it does not recover and the only way to restart it is to take the battery out numerous times. Battery life is VERY POOR- it only lasts 2 HOURS of use unlike the manufacturers statement is 6 hours.
Summary: i got this phone on my graduation i must say its very good a small problem on the battery yet i fix it with juice defender i can play games balance way it last like 14 hours of rapid mp3 and gaming 3 days of average use its fast and the camera is not bad i dont need camera that much plenty of compatible apps to this phone so its cheap and functional! very good!
Summary: I had this phone for quite a few time now and there is no problem with it so far but what bugs me battery backup get down shortly while using internet especially skype & facebook also hangs. Very small internal memory. But compare to other best brand mobiles it has Good Features Smart Phone in Cheap Price. In Samsung this the lowest and price smart phone.
Pros: Good Features Smart Phone in Cheap Price
Cons: Hangs, very small internal memory, battery backup get down shortly while using internet
I wouldn't choose a glitchy Samsung Galaxy Y again.
21 October 2013
Excerpt: "I chose the Galaxy Y as part of a contract deal. I was new to Android yet pretty tech savvy and at first was really pleased with the phone. Unfortunately it very quickly became what I call "glitchy". Apps closed down all of the time, it seems to take forever to do a media scan when I first put the phone on too. The phone had an unfortunate accident as I dropped it in the sink and my insurance meant I was sent another one out. The same happened again. ...
Pros: Small so easy to store in your pocket / bag
Cons: Slow response time, poor battery life, "glitchy", apps close down, apparent memory issues
Summary: Although it has all the gizmos you might look for, I was disappointed that it is severely limited in being able to access broadband/internet away from home wi-fi unless you pay an additional premium
