Samsung Galaxy Portal i5700 review

 

Can Android 1.5 and black plastic cut it in 2010?

Good battery life ; Bright, responsive screen ; Solid, weighty build ; Surprisingly good camera

Very basic version of Android ; Messy button layout ; Small 1GB microSD card from T-Mobile ; No camera flash

Samsung, the famed Korean jack-of-all-technologies, is having another go at mastering the Android phone scene, after making a bit of a mess of it with last year's original Galaxy.

The Samsung Galaxy Portal (as sold by T-Mobile; also known as the Galaxy Lite) is a relatively cheap Android smartphone with an AMOLED screen. It's visually similar to the earlier GT-I7500 Galaxy, but incorporates many positive changes, not least of...

Despite a lower spec camera and less storage, the Galaxy Portal is a better smartphone than the original Galaxy, and is available free on a £20-per-month contract

Samsung Galaxy Portal review

 

Samsung's second Android phone, the Galaxy Portal, opens the door to a world of augmented reality. But is it worth entering?

An Android smartphone that doesn’t set the world on fire, but does a solid job for little outlay

Samsung i5700 Galaxy Portal review -

 

The phone is decently priced and fits the hand well

Irritating screen unlock, average camera and elderly-looking version of Android

Samsung GT-i5700 Galaxy Portal Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Portal is a pretty nice device overall. The main thing I really do not like is all those buttons below the screen. There are way to many and navigating them is not great. It just doesn't feel natural. In fact I will be honest. The...

Review: Samsung Galaxy Portal, the Budget Android

 

The Galaxy Portal may initially appear as a smaller version of the original Samsung Galaxy, but that means a cheaper handset and you even get Samsung's second attempt at an Android phone. Does the Galaxy Portal still deliver enough features to keep you...
