I bought it.
There is lack of Android 4.1 phones with qwerty. I wonder, why there is over 500 touch Android phones and you can name just three good qwerty Android business phones:
The problem is, that only Motorola has HVGA screen and decent camera, but old Android version 2.x.
Others two have ugly screens and only Chat has ICS.
So. I'm using Samsung Chat now. ICS and qwerty is great.
But still I wait for business phone of my dreams with:
- Android ICS
- better resolution screen
- better camera
- better case (samsung is very cheap and fingerprint prone)
- and messaging LED for Christ sake!
So, Motorola PRO++ ICS could be great, but with vanilla ICS and message LED.
Phone is superb high end download speed .....
another low cost master from samsung
thank you guyzzzz....
good phone bt no dual sim !!!! i want dual sim ... when launch dual sim ??
i have been using this phone since 3 days ani i m finding this phone interesting day by day.. the specs are just fine and the most interesting part is that v r getting ics at such a low range i.e just rs 8100.. just love this cell.. only demerit is the low screen resolution.. guys go for it if u need a gud phone with such gud features
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2012What is the capacity of RAM in galaxy chat..Pls share it Frnds...!!!the total RAM capacity as you might have seen in the specs is 512MB. The user available RAM will be less because when your apps are running they take some amount of RAM. For example if 10 apps are running and they take 200MB of RAM then you will be left with 312MB. So dont freak out when you see less amount of ram. just add the total usage and the total free amount and you will get the total ram. in case you see that the sum is less than 512mb you should know that some background processeses are there which will not show in the task mgr because these processes are critical to the system and killing them can damage it.
Sumukha, 03 Oct 2012Guys i'm confused between galaxy chat and galaxy 551 and also sony ericssson xperia mini pro..... moregalaxy 551 is very old now, so don't buy it. as far as the mini pro is concerned it is better if you want to stay with gingerbread because I have heard many people saying that it runs slow on ics. the galaxy chat is getting jelly bean so I would advise you to get the chat.
Nick, 03 Oct 2012I've been using this phone for the past couple of days, and I've not really found anything to ... morehii brother please tell me the price of this fone and does the software and programs run fast or slow? is it coming in pakistan??
3turn_0f_4x, 03 Oct 2012Its is gud but advise to get htc one v it has beat audio htc one v is good but it is priced more than twice the gchat here. Why would someone who is interested in the chat be interested in the one v? I mean someone who is looking to buy a smartphone in this price bracket surely cannot go up to more than twice the price at which the gchat is available. And why would anyone buy the one v when dual core powered smartphones are available in that range.
Guys i'm confused between galaxy chat and galaxy 551 and also sony ericssson xperia mini pro..... Plz suggest me which is the better choice and why.... Pls reply asap... Tnx in advance...:)

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
yuvrajmehra, 30 Sep 2012better buy htc chacha though i use it as a secondary phone but it looks its touch screen and r... moreHtc chachas battery is just horible. 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.
yoyo, 02 Oct 2012can i ask you guys something?? which one is better, samsung galaxy chat or xperia mini pro?? a... moreIf you ask me, I would rather go with chat. 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.
