I've been using this phone since October 2012. Here is a detailed review about this phone: The first thing you see in this phone is its 3'' TFT screen with very less pixel density, for a entry level phone, the screen size is acceptable however the quality of screen isn't very good. In sunlight, it's really hard to see the screen unless you make the brightness to full. The screen is responsive but it's not enough responsive. You can see the power button on the right side and the volume up and down keys on the left side which are easy to reach. There's a menu capacitive touch key on the bottom right, a back touch key on the bottom left and in the middle there's a physical button to multi task. Sometimes the touch keys don't respond. Music quality of this phone is awesome if not amazing, the earphones that comes with this phone is of nice quality but the earphones aren't comfortable to plug in the ears. Call quality is nice, you can slide on the green circle to accept a phone call or slide in the red circle to end the call, it's worth to mention that whenever you put the phone on your ears during a call, the screen turns off automatically and if placed far from your ears during a call, the screen turns on. The build quality of this phone is nice but due to its being made of plastic, the phone gets finger prints easily, it's worth to put a cover if you care. This phone runs on Android 2.3. 6 Gingerbread which is outdated these days and there are no software updates available for this phone and i don't think there will be one. The phone has 832 Mhz ARM v6 processor coupled with 290 MB RAM out of which 100 MB is free, due to this many HD games don't play smooth, however some games can be played buy performing root which voids the warranty, and multitasking is a pain on this phone, however you can open three or four application at a time but it will most probably slow down your phone. Some applications crashes after using it for a long time, say 3-4 hours. SwiftKey is one of those applications. The internal memory of this phone is only around 190 MB on which you can only install applications, a SD card must be inserted to save music, pictures, etc. The battery is of 1200 mAh which gives a decent amount of battery backup on Standby time but the battery discharges quite quickly on continuous usage. There's 3G, bluetooth, wifi, wifi hotspot on this phone. I noticed that some 3G SIM cards don't work, think it's a technical issue of this phone. I bought this phone for 7000 but now the price is about 5000. I'd not suggest anyone this phone because this phone is laggy and one can't have a great user experience. The phone heats up if you're using it continously.

HI,i agreed with the review you have posted about Galaxy y, but not agreed with the advice to buy Nokia 501 instead of android which offers far better many free & useful apps which worths a lot more & are of most importance than smooth user interface dude,another thing is that Android is far better than Symbian in 501 i had used 501 too but it is really not good at all compared to Galaxy y.
Another thing is if we have budget above 10000 than y to go for Lumia go for Xperia E or other Samsung phones within this range , windows phones dont offer much functionality as Android phones does, the difference is that Windows phones offers only smooth user interface fewer limited functions(only good to play video games)while Android phones offer smooth interface with much more useful apps,which worth a lot, which we dont get in Windows and Symbian phones.Dude Android is really a great and useful OS please dont underestimate it, it is the future of smartphones, frankly speaking Nokia is now outdated to use specially Symbian one which really gets corrupted very soon. please dont suggest to avoid Android phones.
I am unable to receive photos emailed to me. My phone indicates "downloading" but nothing happens. Can anybody help?
