Samsung Galaxy Spica Android Phone Review – Video

7

Okay, let me be honest with you – This is the first time I have done a video review and I think I have failed miserably :). Its not easy ! I am still going ahead and sharing the video with you – at least it gives a good idea about the phone I have been playing for last few days.

If you remember, I had asked our readers to suggest a few Android phones a few days back and I think input from them really helped me a lot in making the right decision – so Thank you all for your comments and suggestions !

I have missed many things in the video review, if you have any questions to ask me – just go ahead and put it in the comments and I would be glad to answer them to you.

(Note: the mobile screen in the video is a little blurred, I did not realize it till the time I saw it on the PC screen – so just to let you know it is problem with the video and not with the mobile screen :)

Personally for me after using Windows mobile for over 2 years – Android is like a fresh breath for me. The review is not as much about Phone, as much as it about Android platform – It allows you to customize your phone to an extent you cannot imagine (at least I did before I bought it).

Here are the phone specifications that I missed putting in the Video Review:

  • CPU 800 mghz processor
  • Weight 123.4g
  • Dimension (HXWXD) 115 x 57 x 12.9mm
  • External Technology 262K Colours TFT LCD Screen
  • External Resolution 320×480
  • External Screen Size 3.2”
  • Battery Capacity (Standard) 1500mAh
  • Battery Talk Time (Standard) up to 11.8 hrs
  • Battery Standby (Standard) up to 650 hrs
  • Camera 3.2 Megapixel
  • 3.5 mm Earphone jack
  • Input Device Full Touch (Capacitive)

The Phone is great, but Android is just awesome – I can confidently say that Android is the future of mobile computing

  1. […] the globe. Google may have stopped selling Nexus officially but handset manufacturers like HTC and Samsung are betting their future on the Android […]

    Hi Arun,
    I went to check out the phone here. The store owner told me that there are 2 problems with the phone.
    1. Message forwarding is not possible.
    2. Bluetooth devices like earphones don’t work.

    Can you please confirm if its true.

    – Abhishek

      Sorry for the delayed reply – I think people have faced this problem…I use a different SMS app…which allows forward properly no issues there..

      Yes, Android 1.5 cupcake has a problem with Bluetooth…heard it from many…not tried it as yet… but Samsung will be releasing Android 2.1 update for Samsung very soon…both of these problems should be taken care of by then..

    2. niranjan says

      Hope this is not true. Such an advanced phone cannot afford to omit these features.

      Arun, It really sounds compelling, but does the 180MB of internal storage limit you from running or installing many applications. Since 800Mhz is pretty fast, one would like to run many apps on it!

    Hi,
    Other than the hardware differences between spica and nexus one .. what abt the Apps like Voice recognition etc available on Nexus One.

    Regards
    Abhishek Jain

    1. Arun Prabhudesai says

      Abhishek, thats what I was saying in the video…you can extend the phone capabilities to whatever you want…there are tons of voice recognition apps in market that you can install. I have one which works well for me..

      In India paid apps are not available, but free apps in the market are available and they cover pretty much everything you may want from your phone… :)

      -Arun
