ras, 20 Mar 2012spice mi-280 is more better then this...dual sim 3g wifi @5kdon't ever purchase these cheap spice, micromax, lava, lemon, karbonn, maxx etc brand mobile phones, though they have android OS.. All these brand phones are china make+ very poor hardware quality.. They are imported here in india & given above brand names.. & you very well know that these china make phones emits lots of/ above limit radiation which can cause cancer, tumor.. These phone's mic is very bad quality which will absorb very low voice after some months of usage, means unclear+ very low voice will hear to other end person.. Also after sells service is very very bad
AnonD-38430, 19 Mar 2012but i think by just removing 3g facility in this phone & removing 32gb microsd card suppor... moreYes, you are absolutely right.......we donot need 3g (as it is too costly), or wifi (as it is not available in remote areas).......But we need dual-sim support (as dual-sim support doesnot make the phone too costly).......So we want a "cheap dual-sim Android" phone from Samsung, and hope the company will hear us.
but i think by just removing 3g facility in this phone & removing 32gb microsd card support & adding 4gb microsd card support only, price can be reduced by 1000-1500 rupees
cshong, 19 Mar 2012To everyone who complain about the spec of this phone, why don't you subsidize the cost of dev... moreright said..
For decreasing price more (for poor ppl like us) i would suggest samsung that remove wifi (bcoz here in remote village areas wifi not available), 3g (bcoz 3g is very costly), geo tagging feature bcoz we don't need this..
Remove rear 2mp camera (i have my old n70 for capturing photos n videos)
instead of 32gb microsd card support, add only 4gb microsd card support (4gb is more than enough for poor ppl like us)
you can remove FM radio also (again i have n70 for this)
thus price can be reduced by removing some features
To everyone who complain about the spec of this phone, why don't you subsidize the cost of developing high end phones or subsidize the cost of buying high end phones to make everyone can buy the high end phones at cheap price like this phone or Galaxy Y? If you can't do it, I would suggest you to shut up and stop complaining.
is its display better than galaxy y, or just as similar to y?
what should i buy out of these two models- samsung galaxy y, or samsung galaxy pocket?
jasper, 13 Mar 2012the ram is a measely 124 mb! how can you play with that small ram? hu askd u to ply games inn it???
harjeet singh, 11 Mar 2012please make small size super OLED Mobiles too.Well unfortunetely that's impossible...super amoled screens automaticly increase the prices so if they do that they have to sell for high prices, if so there is no point to produce a phone with a small amoled screen..because devices with small screen are low-end..
Ghost, 09 Mar 2012Phone is thicker than galaxy y.also not looking hot as y.so it should cheap than y.it is a upg... moreConsidering the features (small touch-screeen, and low 3g speed) of 'Samsung Galaxy Pocket,' the price should be Indian rs. 4000 to 5000........... It has 3gb internal memory, but (unlike other mobile phones) Samsung will not provide any ''free'' external memory card in the box.........'Samsung Galaxy Pocket' is inferior to 'Samsung Galaxy Y,' but (unlike 'Samsung Galaxy Y'), 'Samsung Galaxy Pocket' will come with Samsung's ChatOn service.
I think this is a total waste of resources...you have a capable processor coupled with the gingerbread OS...but what were they thinking when they fitted it with just a 2.8" screen?!that all messed up the package...a bar type phone where you'll need to have the fingers of a 3 year old to enjoy the experience...
rv, 10 Mar 2012its price wud be btwn 4 to 4.5 k...no clue wen it wud b avbl in storesDear RV ,
What do u mean by 4 to 4.5 k .Please explain .
I think Galaxy Pocket will cost more than Galaxy Y. Just having a 0.2" screen doesn't mean it would be cheap. Plus, it has 3GB built in storage. Also, Y series phones are meant to be cheaper.
By look its not too as compared to galaxy y, as per Indian price it would be around 7 to 7.5k
