Anonymous, 23 Apr 2012Can I Use Download & Use Themes On This Galaxy Y Phone?Yes, without a doubt. All android phones behave the same way, doesn't matter what company makes it. So to answer your question, you can, but you'll have to root it.

Swifter, 23 Apr 2012Dude htc explorer is nearly 2k costlier than this fone.....n u can execute stuff faster with 8... morebuddy...check recent price of htc explorer. Its almost same now.
In htc explorer no need to root for flash support.its official verson support flash. Because it has a ARMv7 processor which is advance and better then galaxy y ARMv6 processor.don't judge processor speed only by based on clock speed. Its like u want to compare 2.2GHz dual core cpu with a 2Ghz core2duo. Ofcourse core2duo perform faster then dual core though its clock speed less then dual core. Same way htc explorer ARMv7 600MHz processor perform faster then galaxy y ARMv6 832MHz.
And don't forget about GPU. HTC explorer has a dedicated adreno 200 GPU for HD games and video. There is no specific GPU in ur galaxy y.
Ram is also another important part of a smartphone. More ram ensure smooth multitasking. Galaxy y has only 290mb while htc explorer has almost double 512mb.
Display of htc explorer is much more better then galaxy y.if u don't believe me then read GSMArena official review. It tells that explorer display has good contrast and better viewing angle.explorer display gives u good sunlight visibility while galaxy y sucks under sunlight.
Dont forget about small display(3'') size and poor resulation(240*320) of galaxy y.explorer has good HVGA resulation(320*480) and good display size(3.2'') at this price range.
2mp camera is not suitable for a smartphone but unfortunetly galaxy y has a poor 2mp camera.htc explorer has 3.2mp.
Htc is a premium brand.they are famous for their smartphone all over the world.
Now choice is yours...
