I've been using this phone for the past couple of days, and I've not really found anything to complain about so far. For the price, this is a steal.
I agree that the resolution could have been better, but running ICS on a 850 MHz chip is very demanding, and it's probably the low resolution that makes this possible.
Even though some games (note 'some', most games will run just fine) might not run on this phone, this phone's a godsend for people who use their phone to communicate a lot. I love the Qwerty keypad.
This phone blows every other sub 10k phone out of the water.
kb slp.dhj assam, 30 Sep 2012is Samsung Galaxy Chat B5330 dual sim or what??Its is gud but advise to get htc one v it has beat audio

A qwerty phone means chatting all day long like nokia eseries. Not just a apealing look. So get samsung, samsung phones are good in battery performance than other android phones.

On seconds thoughts, if my budget would have been that high so as to purchase the mini pro then I would have gone with the lww or the Ace plus(also getting JellyBean). I also want to make an amendment o my previous post in which I suggested the xperia miro. Get the Ace Plus rather than the miro. It's much better.

Mini Pro has problem with it's battery. Probably one of the worst battery. Mini also slow down when upgrade to ics. While chat has no problem with ICS.
Galaxy Chat will also get Jellybean soon. It is officially announced by samsung itself.
All of you wanting an ICS phone in a low budget should know that this is a really nice device. Samsung's new UI looks good and performs very well. There are some things that you should keep in mind. This handset does not have very high display quality and don't expect very high performance from this one. It only has an 850MHZ processor, so don't compare it with phones having 1GHZ and higher processors. The processor is ARM v7 and supports all latest apps, so there will not be any issue of compatibility. Some apps may not run due to the low res. This phone can be a very good change for bb users. This is the lowest priced ICS handset in the market and better than most in this price range, so if you want a handset in this price bracket and want ICS then go for this one. As far as playing games and vidoes goes, you will not like it very much, so keep your preferences in mind. This phone is for those who do not want to type on virtual keyboards which can be annoying if you text very much or type long emails. There is another similarly priced handset coming up called Galaxy Music, so if you are in for a full touch phone then you can wait for that one though the screen size and the features are the same. There is another phone in this price range called the Sony Xperia Tipo which has better display res, so you can look for that one too.
yoyo, 02 Oct 2012can i ask you guys something?? which one is better, samsung galaxy chat or xperia mini pro?? a... morethe mini pro is much better if you want to stay with gingerbread. all the specs are much better than this one. it slows down when ics is installed in it, so if you want ics very badly then go for the chat or if you have a higher budget then go for the xperia miro. first read all reviews of the miro before investing.
can i ask you guys something?? which one is better, samsung galaxy chat or xperia mini pro?? and why??
Can I use Google Voice Search on Samsung Galaxy Chat with jelly bean update???
hai frndz i am going to buy samsung galaxy chat
Its work with all the apps?

That's exactly the job of a proximity sensor. Making the screen off and allowing features like direct call. Some manufacturer put 2 proximity sensor. Like in the Glaxy Y. Perhaps it helps in making it accurate.

Can anyone tell me how to move/install apps downloaded from market on SD card. I Just got this phone yesterday. Good phone but need to move apps to SD card.
VISHAL THAKRAL, 30 Sep 2012Well As you have already purchased this phone, I would like to ask some question, Does the bat... moreDear Vishal,
Battery last for more then a day in moderate usage. Battery backup is good and capacitive touch is very responsive.
Blackberry 9330 is also a good option with better resolution screen. But then you have to compulsorily activate the BIS on your blackberry mobile which costs you extra amount. Also you get good choice of apps in Android then Blackberry.
Actually both the mobiles are no nonsense phones. You can choose either. I love to type on physical qwerty keyboards thats why I chose this handset with latest OS which definitely is within my budget. Also this mobile has been promised Jellybean from Samsung. Which is another plus point. The only two cons with this handset are..... little low resolution, which doesn't matter to me.....and missing Trackpad. Thats it.
Otherwise this is the best Android Qwerty handset within this price range available as of today.
Hope this helps Vishal.
Shanza Sunil , 28 Sep 2012Hi
I Would prefer to buy this but confused between this and galaxy Y ? what to do ? which... moreDear Shanza,
Definitely Galaxy Chat is much better with latest OS and qwerty keypad. It depends upto you, whether you loves physical Qwerty or touchscreen only. Also the inbuilt memory of Galaxy Chat is more then Galaxy Y.
moin.awesome13, 30 Sep 2012dude they are not holes....
They Are Sensors....(Accelerometer,Proximity)
You are wrong. Accelerometer sensor does not need to be visible in front of the phone. In fact, accelerometer is always on PCB inside the phone.
Proximity sensor - ok. But what about second "hole"? Is it just prepared for second camera or LED messaging?
