How come they haven't reviewed this yet? I certainly hope the back feels alright. Cuz from the look it definately looks more plasticy and lower quality, than more expensive handsets like the previous samsung galaxy, jet etc. Pros about the back however is better grip around the device.. Otherwise the most of the device looks just about fine, the headphones u recieve are alright, the display is almost as nice as an amoled (from what I've heard), nice battery, decent music player and the fact that it's the first android with a Divx support makes it even better. Those things probably makes up for the unfortunate fact that it doesn't have a flash and the awful built in memory.
"cat /proc/meminfo" tells that the MemTotal is 150MB (96MB in the old Galaxy), the same MemTotal as Acer Liquid S100 which is known to have 256MB of RAM. It would be odd if Spica had less than 256MB of RAM considering that its sister model Samsung Moment with same processor has that amount.
800 MHz CPU + Graphics accelerator and you have just 128 MB RAM ?!? COME ON SAMSUNG !!!
we need much more ram , sasung pls put at least 512 mb ram next time even htc has much more ram then galaxy :(
This is also known as the "Samsung Galaxy Lite" in Brazil. It was released here on October 22, with a MSRP of R$ 999 (about US$ 580), making it the cheapest Android-based smartphone on the Brazilian Market.
Internal RAM at 128 is way too low unless you don't plan on adding much.
Does anyone know if this Phone will be sold Unlocked like the "i7500 Galaxy" or if will be sold locked by some provider?
Any News on who that Provider will be?
THANK'S FOR ANY INFO
Obviously Android is getting better and better. Soon by by Symbian and WinMo, at last a free OS which will generate tons of applications. If all the big brands are working on it, it means it will be the phone standard in the near future. Except Nokia of course, still stuck in the past with its prehistoric S60 OS. Good work Google !!
-Samsung 800 Mhz processor has 3D Graphics accelerator!
-It seems no lagging (I test it on the fair and see some videos of Brazilian sites!)
-Android seems to be a little customized,but nothing like Sense UI,unfortunately!
-It is really pocketable!
-Its price is good hear (450 dollars unlocked)
-According to Sammie Businessman,its display is unfortunatelly TFT,but capacitve!
-It still have the same lacking of features as the I7500 (despite Smart Dialling that I dont know)
-It seems to came only on the Christmas!
-128 MB of RAM + 256 MB of ROM only (but with MicroSD card slot and maybe an 4 or 8 GB card!)
-Sammie is going to release in end of 2010 Q1 or beginning of 2010 Q2,more Android and its own LiMo devices *________*!
Omar, 25 Oct 2009Comparing the I7500 & the I5700...
Can anyone tell me why the I5700 has a 800MHz processor,... moreso,I think Sammie is going crazy with all this processor thing,but,as I can see,the processor of the I5700 is not an smartphone one,like the Jet,as the I7500 is,or something on that way!
GSMArena,unfortunately the display is TFT and not AMOLED,so correct this please! (Its coming first in Brazil,as I see it in a tech fair and only the display tech,camera,design and memory makes it different from the I7500!)
Comparing the I7500 & the I5700...
Can anyone tell me why the I5700 has a 800MHz processor, while the I7500 has only 528MHz processor? Does anyone know the actual name of the processor on the I5700?
Since the Spica is supposed to be a graded down version of the Galaxy, it doesn't make sense that it has a more powerful processor.
If anyone can shed some light on this, then it would much appreciated!
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2009for me 5800 can't be c better than this because that comes from nokia. And going back to nokia... moreHave to strongly disagree with you there on all counts.
Again, I'm not saying that the 5800 is a "better" phone, and it shouldn't be either since it's a year old. But it might be a better phone for ME, and it has a lot of features that the I5700 lacks.
And I really don't care if I live in the past bla bla or how hip the phone is. If that was my main concern then I would had bought an iPhone. I buy a phone to use it.
And you base your opinions about Nokia on the 1100??? That's their lowest lowest entry phone ever!
I think both companies have good offerings. Allthough I haven't bought a Samsung for a while since I never liked their UIs, but I might be willing to give this android phone a shot, if it comes at a decent price and in the store soon.
