Mobile World Congress, BARCELONA, Spain
- The Samsung Galaxy Fit
was another mid-range Android smartphone showcased in a hands-on review form by the company's reps, to PhoneRPT. The handset tests the minimum requirements of the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system running on it, by offering 600MHz only in processing power. That enables it to lower the price point to a stage that could even be considered upper entry-level; and it allows for less battery consumption, of which the results cannot be determined as we are still awaiting for data from Samsung Mobile.
The Samsung S5670
offers a 5 megapixel camera on its back, a 3.31" touchscreen display with 240x320 pixels in resolution (QVGA), and of course, Samsung's own TouchWIZ 3.0 user interface. The resolution is quite disappointing, seeing that even 2.8" screens with the same pixel density look quite weak in terms of quality.
The manufacturer didn't save on components, in order to properly counter the threats from the HTC
camp, who unveiled the HTC Wildfire S
at the same event, and other phone makers - the handset features GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, HSDPA, FM radio with RDS, and a micro SD memory card slot.
Besides the the resolution, which we see as a disavantage, the Samsung Galaxy Fit
could have been made more compact, but if it's variety that customers are looking, there are four other phones in this Galaxy family.
