As an owner of this phone for a month, I must say I'm impressed. This is my first Android phone, and hearing about all the lagginess (and seeing in some earlier droids) made me skeptical as to whether I should get it, because it's an entry-level device and has a single core 832Mhz processor. It runs very smooth, I should note that 'Animations' are turned off in settings, but aside from the 320x240 resolution and some random force closes (only a handful), I've had no issues with it. Samsung has done quite well with this device for people on budgets/people who don't need much out of an Android phone. Considering it's sold all over where I am currently, Saudi Arabia, I'd consider the Galaxy Y to be the poster-boy of entry-level Android devices.

My Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 switches to and from... morewell...maybe you have a battery saver application because it automatically does that to save battery whenever it is running low also try putting a pattern lock on the screen to prevent accidental activations of
applications or commands.......

Can any body help me in resolving one issue?
My Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 switches to and from the silent mode on its own or may be due to some command applied by me accidently. So, whenever I put it somewhere (out of my pocket) and if at that time it goes to the silent mode and some body calls me I can not hear the ring tone (obviously) and then could not attend that call.
I would be very grateful for the kind and valuable support of any one in overcoming that problem. Thank you.
I bought a Galaxy Y 4 months back and so far it has not been upto my expectation. There are certain problems faced such as
1. When we end call it shows as Hanging up and it stays for nearly 2-3 mins.
2. The back button does not work but when it was showed to the service center they said it is because of the screen guard and you should remove this. And from that time I did not face this problem.
Battery is good but connected to internet it drains off very early.
The touch pad keys are so small that its difficult to type messages.
Last but not the least I would give a rating of 4/10.
Would really like to change the phone. Please suggest any good mobile in 7 to 10K range
