Overall the Samsung Galaxy Y is a basic smartphone with nothing on offer that makes it stand out in the crowd. If you shop around you’ll find far better equipped devices even at this ultra low price point.

Samsung Galaxy Y (GT-S5360) Review

 

Budget Android devices are gaining popularity as the ‘high-end' specifications are finally starting to trickle down to phones under Rs.10,000. Samsung's latest Galaxy Y is one such example of an affordable, yet very much user friendly Android phone....

Samsung S5360 Galaxy Y preview: First look

 

Smartphones at parent-friendly prices mean that a kid's first phone can be a smartphone, just like dad's. The Samsung S5360 Galaxy Y is part of Samsung's youth-oriented lineup and promises the Android experience at a bargain.

Samsung Galaxy Y Review

 

Affordable, Pleasant design

Low ppi count makes screen look pixelated, Subpar camera

There isn’t much that piqued our interest while handling the Samsung Galaxy Y , but it is a decent low-end Android handset from a brand name manufacturer. With the patterned silvery back cover and mirrored front we can even say it’s a looker, which...
