Samsung Galaxy Y
The Samsung Galaxy Y is a great little smartphone if you’re looking for decent spec at a low cost. The device runs on the Gingerbread iteration of Android, version 2.3.5, and affords users all of the great customisation that Android is synonymous with. The Galaxy Y has a 3-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen, 2-megapixel primary camera which offers geo-tagging, and it all runs on an 830MHz ARMv6 processor, which may not be the speediest chip around, but is quite the workhorse, and the device also sports 290MB RAM. The cheery on the cake is the micro SD slot, which accepts cards up 32GB in capacity, giving you plenty of room for your media.
