The Galaxy Y Pro Duos is an excellent choice if you have 2 sim cards. There are certain compromises to be made. The major CONS are:
1. Screen is only 256K which is a big let down though it is sharp enough for movies.
2. Fonts are a bit small and look a bit smudged. Needs an update (if at all it comes) to fix this.
3.There is no calling or call-ending key. (Which you can live with)
4. Dialing a number on the phone has to be done only after opening the onscreen keypad. This is a pain when calling an unsaved number. But you can type in contact names to dial saved numbers.
5. Cheap plastic. Feels like holding a Samsung Chat322 phone
The PROS of the B5512 are:
1. Android
2. Many games and apps run easily
3. Internal memory of 160 MB is better than other phones of this kind
4. Cheap
5. Touch and Type. Very nice keypad. Good spacing and feel.
6. Office in built (Polaris). So good for viewing and editing those last minute sheets and presentations.
All in all it is a good, sturdy, no-nonsense phone. Not flaunt-worthy. But gets your work done.

But most of your high memory games can be moved. Also make a note of which downloads are rarely used and delete them if you don't use them a lot.
