A Taste of Android Gingerbread

The Galaxy Y Malaysia knows its target market, and it aims to deliver what matters for the young ones and the newbies to the smartphone arena.

The Galaxy Y is a smartphone that mainly focuses on social skills and connectivity because its strongest feature its ability to connect to a wireless network and browse the internet and social media. Another feature that can be greatly enjoyed in this device is its multimedia function like audio and video playback. It has a dedicated music player, courtesy of Samsung’s TouchWiz music player. As for its video player, it is plain and simple, but could already do the job as it supports many of the basic video formats, except for DivX or XviD videos due to its hardware limitations.

Swype Messaging

One of the earliest innovative features from Samsung is one of the key features of Galaxy Y Malaysia. The messaging feature of this device is straightforward and easy to use, and to make things easier, the keyboard is blessed with a feature that will make typing a lot faster and easier for the users – it’s called the Swype function. Users can simply slide their fingers from one letter to another in order to type a word. The phone’s dictionary will instantly form the words for you according to how your pattern of typing.

Basic Camera

The camera of the Galaxy Y Malaysia is definitely not one of its strongest features, however, it’s a budget phone, so basically you get what you pay for. However, 2MP is not so bad for a 3.0-inch screen phone – it’s there to serve its purpose, not to impress.
