UNBOXING: Samsung Galaxy Y S5360

Before I got Torkee (Torque DQ51) as a raffle prize, I was really aiming for an Android phone as I never had one. I was not after the expensive smartphones but I want at least the latest Android version, a phone where I can browse the internet for Facebook or Twitter, has a camera, and of course, basic call and text functionality.

With this, I was really eyeing for a Samsung Galaxy Mini. I checked the specs and it has more than what I need considering its price, plus it has 3 colors to choose from. So one Saturday morning, we went to SM Megamall Cyberzone to canvass prices from different stores. The cheapest Galaxy Mini that we found was at 6,550Php. That's it! I'm going to buy it! But I had to withdraw money first and have lunch.

We went back after lunch, and found newly displayed posters of a new Samsung phone -- Samsung Galaxy Y. It already uses Gingerbread vs Galaxy Mini's Froyo. It has a bit smaller screen and camera resolution than Mini, but much better processor. And the price, 5,700Php (SRP 5,990Php) -- way cheaper than Galaxy Mini.

Let's get to know more about Samsung Galaxy Y.

Box contains the Galaxy Y (Young) handset, charger & battery, data cable, microSD card plus adapter, headset, User Guide, and Samsung Kies (software application).

It uses microUSB port for data cable and charger. Below is the full specification.

It only has one color but you can place ArtWraps at the metallic back cover. I guess I was among the firsts who bought this upon its release last October 15, 2011 that I wasn't able to avail the FREE 2 limited edition ArtWraps (October 15-31, 2011 purchase).

Battery-wise, if you have installed and use a lot of applications, possibly you'll be charging your phone daily. Picture quality, it is 2MP but I find it better than my previous 2MP Nokia phone.

I have been using this for almost 2 weeks now. It has more than what I need, don't have complains yet, and it's cheap. I guess it's the best Android starter phone that you can have!
