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.

Samsung I5700 Galaxy Portal review

 

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 Galaxy Portal Review

 

Exclusive to T-Mobile and Three in the UK, Samsung's second endeavour into the Android space is the imaginatively named Galaxy Portal, and it's a refreshing change from the mixed bag of smartphones from Samsung in the past.

This is a budget Android device, reflected in its sub standard 3.2-megapixel camera, lack of internal memory and chunky design. However, it can stand up next to the Galaxy almost as an equal with an improved processor and solid Android performance....

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...
