    I’m liking the W i8150. Was looking to buy the Ace but this one’s promising. This will have to do until Samsung outs the SIII next year. XD

    Are you sure there is a Galaxy M???

    GSMArena only state M Pro.

    Samsung mimics pretty well BlackBerry and iPhone models. It may have the best interface compared to other android phone makers. It smartphones sell very well. The landscape of technology changes very fast. HP is unbeatable in the PC market for a number of years and then just last week they announced that their PC division is either for spin off or for sale. Sudden turnaround of fate due to pressures from tablet PC and smartphones spearheaded by Apple.

    In the smartphone wars, Samsungs models are the most selling android models then all of the sudden Google bought Motorola putting Samsung future android phones in limbo. Just then they thought that Apple is rampaging, a news broke out today that Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, resigned due to health reasons. Apple, just recently, was crowned the world’s most valuable company with Steve Jobs at the helm. What’s next for Apple now????????

  10. There are the phones i’m planning to acquire to level up my current unit.

  15. kyflo says:

  16. Ron Paguia says:

    available na po ba d2 pinas yang galaxy w? i was planning to buy ace kasi.

  17. Kaloy says:

    Really am looking forward to buy Galaxy W. IMO, if you are looking for a long-term investment on a phone but does not want to spend that much, then this is the ideal phone for you. Nabasa ko pala sa gsm arena that this phone runs on a single-core processor. Meaning, lowdown nya is that the phone runs out of juice quickly daw…

    @Luke Tan: The reason why samsung tech is so kin to Iphone because Samsung is the maker of Iphone’s “A5” tech.

  18. kevin says:

    damn! sayang. grabe specs ng galaxy w. ang ganda. kaso nkabili nko ng ace. haha damn damn damn. pero available nb to dto sa pinas?

    hi yuga,

    any news / reviews on the samsung galaxy w?


  21. Grooveless says:

    Some weeks ago me pinakita sa king printout of upcoming phones yung saleslady sa Samsung store sa SM fairview. Kasama dun yung Y Pro and W. As of the moment, yung W pa lang ang meron. Sana matuloy yung M Pro. Bibili na dpat ako Gal Pro pero nalaman kong lalabas yung M Pro I decided to wait.
    @Nhel, check mo yung Gal W. I think ok syo yun. Fits your price range if I’m not mistaken.

    I bought the Galaxy W two weeks ago for about Php 15,500 (it was on sale i think since the original price tag on it was Php 16,700).

    It’s a great phone for the price range and significantly more powerful than the Galaxy Ace. It plays HD games and videos (720p) quite well, has a front facing VGA cam (tried it on yahoo video chat), and i can play flash-based videos on the browser itself.

    Personally i like the design of the phone (i’m more in favor of function over form). It’s also very sturdy despite it being all-plastic. No creaks, no gaps, and no loose covers. Even if it is light it feels solid.

    The screen is also significantly sharper and brighter than the Galaxy Ace it replaces. According to some sources the Galaxy W uses S-LCD.

    On a full charge, the battery lasts me a good 2 days on light usage. It feels that the Galaxy W’s battery lasts a little longer than the Galaxy Ace IMO.

    For a mid-range phone that’s a bit more powerful than the iPhone 4 but costs significantly cheaper, the Galaxy W is hard to beat.

    I’m just having trouble looking for a gel case for this thing but i found and bought a screen protector for it.
