A Galaxy of Difference,
This review is from: Samsung I8150 Galaxy W Sim Free Smartphone (Wireless Phone Accessory)
What a great phone. I wasn't in the market for a 4.3 inch monster and the screen size on the W is a happy medium. Text appears crisp and the colours really pop. In terms of speed, the phone is comparable to an overclocked Galaxy S 1. Everything runs smoothly and there is no lag. It runs the most demanding applications and the full flash browser is simply brilliant.
The built and form factor are average but functional. The camera is great (although it struggles a little in low light). Video recording looks good and I've used it on several trips with good results.
Coming from the rather feeble HTC Wildfire, my opinion of Android was very low. Having owned an iPhone previously, it felt cheap, nasty and under developed. It's now apparent that it was the hardware, not the software that let me down. I'm now a convert and Apple will have to offer something a lot more substantial than a talking assistant to win me back.
Lastly, the price. This is a bargain! It is basically an iphone 4 without the trimmings. Do not be put off by the single core processor as the clock speed more than makes up for things and it does not drain the battery as much.
