Review of Samsung Galaxy S Advance
Ever since I posted about the top 5 gadgets that I want in 2012, I have been quite interested to read reviews on the smart phones, laptops and other cool new gadgets. I think it is about time I dedicate a day in a week to make a review on some of the selected gadgets (which I’m interested, off course). Hence, I have decided to make Tuesday a Cyza Sector Tech Review day. So, from now on, whenever you read my blog on Tuesday, you will surely read my review on selected gadgets. What do you think of that idea?
For a start, I’ll make a review on the new and extravaganza Samsung Galaxy S Advance.
Samsung Galaxy S Advance Review
It’s been almost a week now since the new “Samsung Galaxy S Advance” had been launched. It is also known as i9070. The date of its release was 30th of January. Till now the phone has not been seen but according to the reports it will soon be released in Russia and later in the other parts of the world.
Android 4 ICS:
Sadly, the phone comes with “android 2.3.6 Gingerbread” and not with awaited “Android 4 ICS”. It would be upgradable to ICS 4 later after it is made available in the market.
If you are looking at its design then the phone is of curved shape. It seems like it is the mixture of “galaxy nexus” and the “galaxy S2”.
Copy of Galaxy R:
The phone is pretty much the same as the original Galaxy which showed up 2 years ago, except some features like increased memory, Dual core and updated OS. But the major features remain the same. e.g. 1500mAh battery, 4 inch 480 x 800 display, 5 MP camera and HSPA.
The phone owns a 4 inch super AMOLED screen with a 480 x 800 screen resolution.
Specialities for the Samsung Galaxy S advance:
Samsung Galaxy S Advance offers a 5MP main camera with 720P video recording. It also offers a front camera of 1.3MP for video dialling etc. The weight of the cell phone is 120 grams which is not that heavy and the dimensions are 123 x 63 x10 mm (approx.). The phone can easily be carried anywhere with you. But if you have a small pair of hands then it might tickle you a bit.
Phone possesses a 768MB of RAM which is quite ok if not the best. It comes with 8/16 GB storage capacity expandable up to 32GB with micro SD card.

Samsung has not mentioned a price for this phone but it is said it would be 336$. That is a high price for a phone like this. Many other phones are offering greater features and they are being sold at much lower price than that.
Hope so this set will be made available in upcoming “mobile world congress” along with “galaxy S3”. The show will be held later this month in Barcelona. Before that, check out Samsung Galaxy S Advance video below:
