Edmund, 22 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, 22 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.

However it still cannot match with S-AMOLED or SC-LCD from aspect reflective and viewing angles from all direction.
The display is not that bad. I compared mine to my friend's S II this afternoon by watching a few movie clips. SAMOLED+ is indeed brighter, but the contrast and color of Samsung Galaxy W are almost just as rich and vivid compared to S II. Thanks to it's high pixel density display.
went and tried this phone just now.
the plastic body is really a deal breaker.
Da, 20 Nov 2011Does this phone also have Gorilla Glass display?No. This phone doesn't have gorilla glass.
