I bought this phone last December and still enjoying it, even with a few disappointments:
1. No auto-brightness adjustment.
2. Very low RAM
3. Battery is good IF you are not a heavy user.
4. Audio from call is bad.
5. The on-screen keyboard hangs and wouldn't respond at times
i just got this phone yesterday, and i'm proud of it, very light phone but heavy ability... nice deal...
Upgrading from Galaxy Gio was the best thing i've ever done!
After 6 months of using the galaxy gio, i finally decided to find a phone that has my needs covered AND in a good price. I searched for my shot, and i've compared between Galaxy R and W. I chose W because i don't need a dual core as a 10th grade student.
In the shop, i've held my Gio and the w, each in one hand. Though i was a previous Galaxy Sl owner, and currently have the galaxy tab p1000, I was shocked for how small the galaxy gio is!
As my first day owning the Galaxy W, i find that it is a decent upgrade from the gio. Bigger screen, camera with flash, faster processor, elegant design, and the better resolution are the things that actually made me take my quick decision and buy it!
Till now, i can't find any cons to this phone. It's not the galaxy note, nor the galaxy s II. It's the W!
Now i'll answer some questions:
1) Viber app didn't send me the verification code as quick as the gio, galaxy sl or tab. It didn't at all.
2) This phone is not slow as some people think. Touch wiz 4 IS heavy. You'd notice some lag though.
3) 3.7" screen isn't bad at all. The keyboard buttons size is acceptable.
4) Total RAM in this phone is 350 MB.
5) In addition to the 1.7 GB internal memory, there is a 1 GB system memory in which applications are downloaded in.
6) Sounds from this phone are acceptable. I tested the alarm and was impressed compared with the gio for example.
7) My unit has 2.3.6 out of the box.
Thanks for reading.
P.S: If you are willing to buy a phone but confused, don't just go and buy this phone because of this review. This is only my opinion in the Galaxy W. Others might report some problems that occur in this phone, but not me.
