Long, it looked as if the former protagonist of Microsoft HTC was the only manufacturer that brings out devices based on Android. However, now joined by Samsung to, and thus a mobile forge that has already proved a good sense for equipment suitable for different operating systems.
- Samsung Galaxy I7500
- Data sheet
The South Koreans Android rather assign a private setting, is also to see that they provide the 549 euro Galaxy I7500 without digits – or QWERTY keyboard with a touch screen. He works on the capacitive principle which precludes the operation by pen.
However, Android is clearly well with sticky keys, even if it supports no gesture control by itself. The user-interface (see also page 18) Samsung adheres acquaintances that so far of this Linux variant. This has the advantage that once learned here again can be used.
Where the views of the display reveals quite a difference to the counterparties by HTC: comes in the Galaxy, like the I8910 HD, an OLED display use, which provides simple yet foxier colors than the usual TFT displays.
Resolution and size, the Samsung with 480 x 320 pixels on 3.2 inch diagonal matches on the HTC Android. Although OLED displays can reflect no light, the display of the Samsung was also out there still somewhat readable even on the sunniest day. Also Transflective displays aren’t much better.
Only small flaws in handling and processing
When operating, the Galaxy went mostly fast to the point. Habituation need breaks occurred only when each task around the control lock, unlock. Of course, a hardware keyboard may still revalue the I7500, but so, Samsung has the smallest and lightest Android Smartphone on sale after all.
That where the processing is the high standard of Samsung, in a so-exclusive product of course. Only conspicuous feature in the test: the memory card can be reduced but without removing the battery in your Micro-SD card slot, but the energy storage sits loosely in this operation. More than once, he has fallen out in the course of the test at the map change.
Battery with a long breath
Back at the designated location made the battery but a good figure: with its 1400 mAh capacity, he drives the Galaxy to over eight hours of talk time in GSM networks and to a typical time of 5:35 hours. There even longer Web sessions or discussions can be on the program. Especially, the acoustics are excellent.
Also the transmission and reception properties of the UMTS band equipped with fast HSPA modes are good. That the GSM section is not quite as good, might be bearable for Germany’s supply area. In the network of exclusive until further notice sales partner O2 in Stuttgart anyway, due to receive limited understanding only in a place known as critical was an issue.
In addition to the brand, an important role could play a facilities feature for many interested in Android: the large memory total over 8 GB provides in addition to the extremely intense colours display ensure that the Galaxy as an entertainment artist really has more to offer, as you would expect from smartphones optimistically.
