its not that the specs are sad, its that for a little more i could get galaxy note or SII, whats the point of this phone, if theres no moderate difference in price...
this is an expensive price in the philippes,,,
same price with SII and iphone4
Alex, 01 Feb 2012The front is same old Samsung design. The back... Is ugly.Every samsung phone's front is like this only nowadays ... they r just releasing a phone every week ..no idea why ?
same specs, same looks just changing names from galaxy S, ace plus, R, W, S2 this, S2 that, ..some nonsense.
People will get bored of samsung in a while if they continue this strategy.
for $535, they would be lucky if they sold 10 devices! really hope the price goes down to at least $450
LOL, this phone looks like my cheap Samsung Exhibit SGH-T679 from T-Mobile.
Alex, 01 Feb 2012The front is same old Samsung design. The back... Is ugly.Why would they change the front?
Front designs is fine..
wtf, 01 Feb 2012omg samsung copy apple pricing style??? touch wiz ui -> ios ui galaxy s -> iphone 4(... moreOkay, i would agree on you with one thing. Samsung's touchwiz is a lot like apple's ios. But specs wise? That is just plain ridiculous. If you would look at it, almost all phones that was realesed at the time of the iphone 4 had the same specs. And exynos like in the iphone? The hell? Samsung makes the processors for apple so how in the world did they copy that??? Samsung made them, apple rebranded them. And pricing is not coppied from apple, since when did you see an i device launch at that price point? Here in our country, which is the philippines. The 4s launched @33k for the 16gb model which is around $650 . Know your facts fanboy and quit trolling.
It was very easy to make this phone very good.
Simply by adding DUAL SIM feature and a larger battery (min 1800 mAh).
Why should I buy this phone when Galaxy S III is almost here?
i dont really think the price is worth what youll buy. i still prefer the moto droid razr than this.
im from the Philippines and here are the prices for phones that are in that price bracket...
HTC Sensation = P21,000
HTC Evo 3D = P17,000
Motorola XT910 RAZR = P22,000
Samsung Galaxy Nexus = P27,000
Samsung Galaxy S II = P25,000
Now i wonder which one of these giants people will overlook seeing as the price of this new samsung device is kinda outrageous :)
omg samsung copy apple pricing style???
touch wiz ui -> ios ui
galaxy s -> iphone 4(spec wise)
galaxy phone -> iphone(model)
and now the copying apple pricing too? for god sake!!!
oh btw what chipset this phone use?
if exynos -> this kind like spec upgrade and this! copy iphone 4 to iphone 4s upgrade (even they copying apple upgrade style!)
if tegra 2 -> okay...but still too expensive for 535$
if snapdragon s3 -> good....but still too expensive for 535$
if apple a5 -> this is very impossible X
pricing in the Philippines is more expensive. The conversion rate is not applicable. it would be cheaper when converted to $. I think it would be between $400-$450 range if it comes out.
Lol Guys. The Galaxy s2 did cost 700$ when it came to market. I guess the price will drop instantly to 350$ as soon its released.
