Samsung Galaxy W (Wonder)

I bought myself a new Android phone for  this year's Christmas, making my Christmas very wonderful!  It's really wonderful, you know why? It's because of the phone itself called 'Galaxy Wonder' - new launched in the market.

 My first Android phone

For the longest time, Samsung didn't have an Android phone that's not too big nor too small for an average ladies' hand. That's very surprising considering that Samsung has released oodles of Android phone of all shapes and sizes.. but not the 3.7" screen size with at least 1GHz processor type of phones. This Galaxy W has a 3.7" screen size with the same resolution as that of the Galaxy S but with a more powerful 1.4GHz processor. It also comes with a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 4GB internal storage.

For me, Galaxy Ace is underpowered and undersized; the Galaxy S so last year and too big; and the Galaxy S2 too pricey for a phone. Thus, i think this Galaxy W could be a nice compromise. The screen is not too big to attract attention but not too small for surfing either. The processor is powerful enough to run most if not all, current apps today smoothly.

 I Love this Galaxy Wonder!

You are talking about RAM or memory card? It has built in memory 4GB but only 1.7GB free space can be used, others were applications which already been used in the phone itself. =)

Cryil, I'm facing the same problem as well. Still couldn't figure it out why.

Vineeth, the price in Malaysia at the moment is about MYR900. I am not sure whether it's available in Saudi Arabia. You may check the Samsung offical website to look for it. =)
