Good: Wifi, Internet, 3G and cheap
Bad: Internal Memory
Comment: Galaxy Y has a good performance compare to Galaxy Mini, but the problem is its internal memory!
Bad: bad camera
Comment: this is one of the best products i have ever used
perfect for kids because of the display.
Good: strong built body
Bad: small screen,poor display and lower memory
Comment: Should have average memory capcity.Should have bigger size in screen and should be much more bight display . it doesnt make any sense to buy because it is cheaper
Good: The Android Version(Gingerbread), Features, and the ease to use.
Bad: Camera is not that good, and the screen is pretty small too.
Comment: I had this phone for quite a few time now and there is no problem with it so far but what bugs me is the camera which is only 2MP and the screen size which is 3" screen which sure is pretty small yet the looks and the design is pretty good and it has good features yet because of the screen you can't download curtain apps and games yet there are no regrets about this phone.
Good: I bought it because it was the cheapest galaxy phone
Bad: hangs, very small internal memory, always displays "internal memory low", rejects sms
Comment: It has only 190MB internal memory. I always get a message saying Internal memory is very low. I deleted all the apps i have downloaded but this problem still remains. And it rejects incoming sms, and you cannot do small things like creating a new note or saving them. None of the preinstalled apps can not be removed although most of them are useless and are actually consuming more internal memory space. Hangs often. Yesterday I did not receive any call for 1 hour because internal memory was full and phone has hanged (unknowingly). What is the use of phone if you can not receive or make call and if you can not send or receive sms? I am right now struggling to solve this problem...
Good: Reliable, easy to use, fast
Comment: The phone is incredibly reliable, easy to use, perfect for a phone fanatic. This phone is one of my best, it is incredibly hard to break, i must have droped mine at least 20 times from a reasonable distance and it still work perfectly. To anyone who loves a hard hitting phone, its right here !
Good: Front camera. Good value
Bad: Quite bad screen
Comment: i want it
Good: apps and wifi
Bad: does not receive phone calls
Comment: The apps and wifi are fine but it is simply no good as a phone. While it is receiving a good signal (3-4 bars) it still tells incoming calls that the phone is switched off. It can make outgoing calls and receive calls for a short time after it is used. UNDEPENDABLE sums it up!
Good: absolutely nothing!
Bad: within weeks of use, it started malfunctioned, it wont power on. prior to that, menus started to flicker or scroll out of control. then boom, it wont turn on. very cheap phone.
Comment: within weeks of use, it started malfunctioned, it wont power on. prior to that, menus started to flicker or scroll out of control. then boom, it wont turn on. very cheap phone as expected from samsung korean/china made. just like my other phone samsung champ 3303k, after a year of use, same problem, wont turn on. according to the service center, motherboard problem. very bad. my old nokia phone which is almost 10 years old OUTLASTED my samsung phone. very bad.
