Samsung Galaxy S Advance review

 Review: May 2012  

Last updated September 2012

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is a higher-end smartphone running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

Today's best buy: Samsung Galaxy S Advance, I9 ... from Amazon (£0)



Samsung may have built its reputation on state-of-the-art phones like the Galaxy S2, but it's proving itself to be ruthlessly efficient at turning out slightly less specified phones at a competitive price. The Galaxy S Advance is one of those phones. It's been designed very carefully to tick all the boxes, and it doesn't put a foot wrong. The Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system isn't the latest, but it's still the most common version in use right now, and offers nearly everything a smartphone user would want. The dual-core 1GHz processor is quite fast enough to power the phone. The screen isn't the biggest, but the 4 inch Super AMOLED screen is everything most users will need. Likewise, the camera isn't the very best, but it produces high quality 5 megapixel images and captures HD video. The memory is plenty too, with 8GB of internal memory plus the option of adding a card.

In short, the Galaxy S Advance delivers a carefully-designed cocktail of features that will tick most users' boxes and deliver a great all-round smartphone experience. There is nothing wrong with this phone. What's missing is anything extraordinary. But it's now available for as low as £15 per month on contract, putting it in the same price bracket as low-end phones like the Nokia Lumia 610, Sony Xperia U and Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. At this price, who are we to argue?

This phone is flawless. I really cannot fault it, and I have been using it for 6 months now on a daily basis. Well done, Samsung.
