It's funny how people judge a phone by its outer appearance. I have an apple-fanboy friend who owns iPhone 4 and knows nothing about android phones. He saw my new Galaxy W, he was smirking while checking out my phone, and said it sucks cuz it looked and feel like a plastic toy. Then I grabbed my phone, started running one of my classic PS game "Valkyrie Profile" and said "Can you play this game on your effin iPhone?" Apparently, he didn't know that droids can play old psx games. His jaw dropped and was dumbstruck when he saw that I could play ps1 games on my phone since we're both huge fans of ps1 games. His reaction was epic.xD

Fyi PVR SGX540 are really powerful than SGX530 or Adreno 205. Currently Galaxy S and SL share the same price in Malaysia market.
Poks, 22 Nov 2011The main big difference is the processor: SL - 1 Ghz W - 1.4 Ghz Hope you'll care about... morethanks my friend,i hadnt seen w but lookwise it looks crap compared to galaxy sl or ace,also humming bird gpu of sl is way better than andreno 205 of w,may be with ginger bread update sl may perform better.if there is a bit price difference of atleast 50-60$ il buy w.
Fakrul, 22 Nov 2011Buyer should consider buying Galaxy S i9000 or Galaxy S Plus i9001 because of small price gap ... moreThanks for reply, I agree that S plus's specs are really close to W, or even better in some other aspects. But I did not consider this, as well as the i9000 because, for some reason, here in Philippines, the price of these two is still too expensive compared to W.
Unlimited, 20 Nov 2011Full PlasticThanks....how about the games..! is it motion gaming?
The big question here is ,this phone can upgrade to ice cream sndwhich..?if yes it ll be the best midrange phone to take..if compare to the S plus..the price is way too far to compare with as S plus arround RM1200 to get a new one while W can buy it arround RM900.do the math and deep consideration,as its just diff of the screen size n type,and ROM memory.
Why do people compare this phone to galaxy ACE?
For everybody's sake, this phone is way way far better than galaxy ACE... the good comparison for this phone is the Galaxy S, SL and S Plus, also include Sony Xperia Neo, HTC Desire S and Iphone 4(set aside screen)...
Edmund, 21 Nov 2011W I8150 is close to the price of galaxy S.Buyer should consider buying Galaxy S i9000 or Galaxy S Plus i9001 because of small price gap with Galaxy W. Current latest price at Malaysia for Galaxy W are around Malaysia Ringgit RM900 while both Galaxy S & S Plus at around RM1050. For only RM150 price gap, you can buy Galaxy S Plus with 8GB Storage, Super AMOLED Screen, 4inch screen Display with Gorilla Glass, Battery 1650mAh and TV Out function.
Note: USD 1.00 : RM 3.80
rkoforever90, 21 Nov 2011pls pls guys somebody tell to which phone price of galaxy w is close to is it close to galaxy ... moreThe main big difference is the processor:
SL - 1 Ghz
W - 1.4 Ghz
Hope you'll care about this.
I also compared the screen brightness (50% brightness level) with my friend's SL and the result is: W is way clearer and brighter than SL (maybe this is due to the pixel density which is 233ppi only for SL and 255ppi for W)...
In using the android browser through 3g, W is 20 seconds ahead of SL in loading the GSM arena syt... considering all plug-ins are set on-demand...(due to higher processing power of W)
In gaming, the Asphalt 6 HD plays smoothly in W while it sometimes lags in SL... (due to higher processing power of W)
Additional apps: in W you have polaris office which is the best office apps, while SL you dont have this.
OS: In W you have gingerbread already, while in SL still have froyo (still waiting in vain for the gingerbread update if you are from asia)
Now, if you are going to choose between the 2, choose W, it will never disappoint you.
huhu, 18 Nov 2011i've got it yesterday in malaysia..cool..Hi huhu. How much did you get it for in Malaysia?
rkoforever90, 21 Nov 2011pls pls guys somebody tell to which phone price of galaxy w is close to is it close to galaxy ... moreThe phone that gets the closest to this is the SL, in terms of specs and price. In our country, the W is roughly $15 cheaper than SL. Forget about Ace, SL and W are way better.xD
