Samsung I5500 Galaxy 5 review: Corby with brains - read the full textDonít know what Android is? Donít sweat it. Prepare to want one.

Awesome android phone for the price, only wish they go with more standard HVGA(480x320) screen resolutions & multitouch.

Nobody really knows whether this phone will get Froyo but when Google announced Froyo, this phone was on display together with some new, high-end phones which are able to upgrade to 2.2

"The inbuilt memory is about 160MB. Android 2.1 Eclair doesnít let you install apps on the memory card so installing big apps can be a problem"

WHAAAAT!! what about those who live for apps and games? :s

my phone of choice. had the resolution been doubled and if it had a led lamp it would've been the best. There is no perfect phone, but there is a perfect phone for you =)
