Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 is an Android Gingerbread phone with 3" capacitive touchscreen display. The phone offers Bluetooth, 3G, and Wi-Fi connectivity. It has 2MP camera with video recording feature.

The phone has social networking app and IM to let users stay in touch. Other features include A-GPS, push email, 832MHz processor, and 32GB expandable memory.

In this article lets see some of the good and the disadvantages of Samsung Galaxy Y S5360. And to start with, here are some of the Good features of Samsung Galaxy Y S5360:

Very responsive touch screen and also excellent Battery Life, I've downloaded angry birds and other games and it worked well, no lags whatsoever. YouTube videos in HD showed very good on the dolphin HD browser.

Battery life is up to 3 days on standby, but I tried using it often for today to drain the battery and it lasted around more than 10 hours, with me playing games and using Wi-Fi.

Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 Advantages and Disadvantages

Some of the disadvantages are here:

It only has android 2.3, and most mobile running froyo can be upgraded to 2.3.

Its screen is too small & resolution of the screen is pathetic, typing SMS will be much tougher. Also, many android apps will not run in this resolution.

Another thing the inbuilt browser doesn't support embedded flash video,but with dolphin HD browser you can see any video. The browser is really smooth and no lag.

In any Android phone from Samsung can use the Dolphin Browser to support flash. You can download Dolphin HD browser from Android Market.

If you face problem with Bluetooth connectivity, and if you are not able to connect Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 with your laptop as a modem through Bluetooth, and if you feel that there is some problem in Bluetooth, make a note that, Android Bluetooth devices are not discoverable by default. so maybe you need to turn on Bluetooth visibility which turns visibility on for 2 minutes only. menu-->wireless and network --> Bluetooth settings --> visible (tick)

If you still not happy with your mobile, Don't do anything just go to your seller and tell him to replace it with a new phone. Don't go 2 service centre. There is a 7day replacement guarantee. Just force your seller to replace it with a new phone.

Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 at this price range of Rs.7000 is good. Excellent buy, you won't regret it for all the features of this phone. Very efficient and affordable. Go for this phone if u have low budget.

There is no options for copy text , instead it copy full sms.

how can i connect to the internet?because i can't connect to the internet even if i have connections on wifi

how do i activate android on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.

Thanks to all for your comments!

how do i connect to the internet?

how to connect to the internet? go to setting, wireless and network, tick/choose packet data. the internet connection should be available unless you don't insert any sim card inside your phone.

if you wanna buy it, then go 4 it. it's generally good i guess. as far as i concern,1. the Samsung Galaxy Y is equippedwith an eight hundred megaherz cpuprocessor though it's gpu is not good enough to run some HD games like nova, modern combat sandstorm, bia2 etc. however, some other HD games are playable like guerilla bob armv6, heavy gunner, emissary war, etc.2. how to make your mp3s become ringtones and message tones: 1st ofall create two folders named"notifications" and "ringtones". then put or copy your mp3 into the folders. it's up to you about the mp3files, but the main point that folder notifications is for your message tones and folder ringtones is for of course ringtones.3. for those who get any problem with your Samsung Galaxy Y phone, the solution is to format your phone, 1st way is go to setting, privacy, and choose Reset Phone (it'llbe prompted a confirmation to continue, so, you have a chance to cancel it). the 2nd way is open the dial and type on the screen*2767*3855# (remember that this procedure cannot be cancelled once you have put those codes, so, you'd better think twice before you do that). In addition, both phone formatting methods will erase your phone data storage, your installed applications even they're installed in sd card. it won't erase your sd data like mp3, pictures, videos,or other downloaded files. once you've done this, the phone will restart and reinstall the software. if the above methods don't work then you should bring your phone to the service center.4. Dear SAI, the phone (Samsung Galaxy Y) has android as the OS Platform. So you don't need to activate the android. android itself is an environment of distinguished applications to run in it which also has its own characteristics. "Damn! I understand a little about android butit's even hard for me to explain to others. alright, the easiest way to explain is there is a symbian phone, there is a java phone, there is an ios phone (iphone), there is a window mobile phone, and, there is also an android phone. there you go, i think i did it now.5. those above I've told are all of thethings that i know. it's not 100% true though.

can you keep same phone number am told it ha sto be activated

Thanks Bootyman for your comments and for your time1

how can i use wifi on my galaxy y

how dose work wifi

how can i use wifi on my galaxy y

hd game such as dead space requires an excellent gpu processor which cannot be found in sgy. i'm afraid the game cannot run in the phone. Even though it is installed but it won't work properly. Samsung galaxy mini has lower cpu clock speed than Samsung galaxy y but it has better gpu processor that enable it to run many hd games.

slide your phone top-down(open your notification bar) and click on wifi, or go to setting and choose wireless and notification, click wifi. The device will scan automatically any available hotspot connection in your area.

Is this phone have upgrade to android 4.0 ics???

Hello everyone,
I bought this phone one month ago. Since day one, it turned off on its own, usually at night but during dautime as well, with full-charged battery, on or off charger, with no applications runing. The only apps i dowloaded from Samsung market where Facebook and Skype and an antivirus program. I returned the phone, they unistalled everything and updated the software, still my phone turned off unexpectedly. They suggested i change my SIM card which was old, still it turned off. This is the third time they try to fix this. I also have problems with my signal reception in places i never had before with my old phone. With a little search i found out this is a common problem. Any ideas? I am a doctor so you understand my desperation since i rely on my phone professionally. Thanks in advance.

Great Mobiles. Thanks for sharing Admin

Id your phone is rooted and upgraded to the higher version, you have a better chance of downloading apps. although I don't usually recommend it but you can also searbh the apk file thru google before installing it

Not necessarily since it's already an android

You'll need to utilize a third party app like gosms if you want to have mp3 used as your message tone.

how to create folder to store sms, the way i used to have on my old nokia phone? or it cannot be done here?

i am connected to the internet but i cant browse, why? pls help...

Hello friends, I bought this phone 3 days ago. . It was working fine. . Today i installed a live wallpaper in it. What happened now was terrible. I just went to live wallpaper settings and my phone wallpaper changed to red and hanged. I took out the battery and when i switched on my phone again. The samsung icon appears again and again and after that nothing happens. Friends please help. . . It will be highly valued

Yes... Just search it in the market

Yeah it can play seasons

Motion sensing yes... But Hd, no... The resolution is only 240x320. Also the 832mhz processor would not be able to cope with HD graphics

Since you have bought this 3 days before, the best advice is that you take it to smasung store or to where you have purchased it, they can fix this easily... a simple reset might do well sometimes, but it is good that you ask them to see if they can fix a live wallpaper for you and make sure this never happens again.
