Samsung has almost decimated the competition in general and Nokia in particular as far as Android based phones are concerned. However it is not resting on its laurels. It is out there to finish off whatever competition that is left out there from the likes of Motorola, Sony Ericsson or HTC with the launch of better faster phones at almost every price range with deep price cuts and aggressive advertisements. The latest salvo from the company is the phone Samsung Galaxy Wave Y which is aimed at the youth and comes with a very attractive price point. The ad for the phone shows how a rich fellow in a car asking for directions and an ill mannered boss in the office are so “out of time and technology” in “not having” this phone. The ads do touch a chord with the audience and the phone was expected to receive a rousing reaction from the buyers. And it did happen. The sales of this model have been going through the roof. So let us see what exactly Galaxy Wave Y brings to the table for its prospective buyers.
The Samsung Galaxy Wave Y has a 3.2 inch HVGA display with Bada 2.0 OS that offers excellent features. It houses an 830 MHz processor which gives it more than adequate performance to carry out almost all the functions that one needs to do on a day to day basis. It has a 2MP camera which is capable of taking some amazing snaps despite it being just two mega pixel. It also comes with some high end phone features such as Wi-Fi 802.11n standard, Bluetooth 3.0 and Chat On Samsung messenger system. The chatting service is very intuitive and user friendly and it is a breeze picking up chat with someone in the friends list. It also features Social Hub 2.0 which keeps all your social contacts and activities at one location making it easy to organise. Many integrated services are also present such as Facebook, Twitter and IM amongst many. The competition killer feature however is its price. With an MRP of 7200, this phone is sure to be a hit amongst college goers. The best part is that one can get this phone for as low as 6700 with a little bargaining and some good sourcing.
