Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 review: Everyone's invited - read the full textThe Samsung Galaxy Y is a smartphone approved for all audiences. Perhaps in hindsight, our Galaxy Note review should've been rated PG. But well yeah, we're always wiser in hindsight. Anyway, you don’t just wake up one...

The battery backup is very very poor i need to charge once sometimes twice in a day for my normal...and low usage.

I recently bought it and there comes a headphone in the package. Maybe the absence of earphone in the review is country specific.

Samsung Galaxy Y 5360L Battery got burned and exploded it.

My Samsung Galaxy Y 5360L was turned off at the moment that I was charging the battery on last 01/01/2012 and after 2 hours, the battery just got exploded burning my sofa.

The Samsung Galaxy Y 5360L itself got burned and full of damage because of the battery.
I follow the instructions how to charge it, it wasn't a short circuit cause the other electrical devices are working totally fine.

I went to the store where I purchased to claim the guaranty cause The Samsung Galaxy Y 5360L had only 15 days with me and had full of warranty per 30 days.

The changed it, off course the kept the damage device with accessories and they provided me a new one with all new accessories.

It was something scary and disappointment since I had never experience something like that before with any brand of cellphone.

Now my question is? Who's gonna pay for my Sofa?

Samsung?

I could not connect my Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 with PC till date as Kies not installed automatically and not activating the window from an internet connection. The authorized sales executives are not thorough in operation of the phone and they even reluctant to attend due to crowd. What I can do. I cant even down load pictures taken on 01/01/2012 to my system. They should have preloaded the software well advance to solve it. May I approach the Consumer Court for their poor support. Please advise.

Please consider my review. Here are the pros and cons from the user side.

The greatest pros are:

SUPERB DESIGN
EASY TO HANDLE-FOR ANYBODY, EVEN A 9 YEAR OLD KID
TOUCH SCREEN IS VERY SMOOTH
PORTABLE HOTSPOT IS VERY GOOD
FULL SMARTPHONE EXPERIENCE
VERY GOOD DISPLAY
PROCESSOR
INTERNET SPEED
SENSORS
TOUCHWIZ-THE BEST COMBINATION WITH ANDROID


The cons are:

Camera is a major drawback
RAM is limited
Not much of available apps
Accelerometer isn't so good
No hot-swappable SIM
Battery life is poor
Low resolution
There are more pros than cons. The phone is the best among the phones in its price range. This is the first smartphone for you- if you wanna buy one Smartphone.

Go on....
