Pros: very responsive touch screen

I'm not a person who often changes my cell phone monthly or even yearly whenever a new model comes. As long as my phone's still working just fine, I won't mind buying an updated one. Hence, it took some years to finally have my first phone running on an Operating System, which is the Galaxy Y S5360 from Samsung.

I bought this 3-inch touch screen white phone three years ago, which generates the Android 3.5 Gingerbread OS. I like the way the applications were placed and integrated well on this phone. In fact, it then suits my simple style of communicating, and I'm satisfied with how this little device explores the techy world through downloadable apps from the Google Playstore.

However, as much as I want this Samsung phone's features, its limited size bothers me anyway. The screen is enough to show smaller images and I had difficulty seeing the information in full details. Also, I'm facing problems with its keyboard. There are times when I am hitting the other letter unintentionally, since the spacing for each single character is limited. Thus, it's time-consuming to re-enter the letters and to do backspacing over again.

Nonetheless, the Galaxy Y phone is inexpensive compared to other Android units in the market, and I think it can even be a great deal for starters as well.
