A very bad phone.....

better off buying optimus 2x if you want a tegra 2 phone (for gamers of course). 18-20 was a good price for this phone. Optimus 2x has a much better camera and a much better IPS display. Also the LG android skin is lightweight compared to the touchwiz crap.And dont forget that the Optimus 2X has a Gorilla glass display making it scratch-proof. And there is a great replacement in CyanagenMod if you dont like the firmware the company offers. And those naysayers thinking 512 MB RAM on Optimus 2X is not enough, think again. Even the iphone 4S released has only 512 MB RAM!!GALAXY R SHOULD BE PRICED LOWER THAN 2x IF IT HAS TO SURVIVE!!!!!!!!!!!experience- I own both the smartphones

Great phone for the price

I had been waiting for the price of the phone to come down from 27k, now at ~23k, its a good buy. The dual core along with the 1GB ram makes make the phone almost silky smooth to operate. With 8GB of internal storage and 1650 mAmp battery keeps it on par or lead with the class of phones at this price. I have been using the phone for the past 2 days and it has impressed me. Battery on a full charge and pretty heavy use lasted me a little more than a day, mind you the brightness of the phone was in the least setting.

The pros
- The screen is pretty good, even if its not an Amoled
- the battery is large and lasts pretty for 1-1.5 days
- The OS and the games run silky smooth
- the touch is absolutley phenomenal (i moved from Nokia resistive)

But there a few niggles,
- the samsung provided headphone are at best, "pathetic"
- The screen feels solid but not gorilla glass
- Samsung provided widgets are hardly impressive unlike the HTC, you will need to go to the market and download some widgets

With 2 days in to the product, I am very happy with it. I would be happy to recomment it to any one purchasing in the range of 20-25k.

And yes, Flipkart's service has as always impressed me when i have used it.

Under estimated Super Smart Phone

This is my first smartphone of touch screen. I have never purchased phone other than nokia.

Have brought this phone one month back.I had seen phones of following brands in operation before buying this one. Sony E Neo V, LG Optimix2X, HTC Desire S, Samsung Galaxy S Plus, iphone 3gs. This phone is superior to all the above listed.

Internal Memory 8GB with breakup as 1) System Storage 1.97 GB(viewable), 2) Internal for downlodable application 3.75 GB (viewable), 3) For Anroid OS 2 GB (not viewable). RAM 724MB

Excellent battery life (1.5 to 2 days with normal usage having phone calls, music & video playing, games and 2G surfing)

Clear & loud audio quality of phone calls.

Camera performance is also good with 720p(HD) recording facility.

Excellent sunlight visiblity of Super LCD screen.

Touch controls smooth as silk.

Big Touch screen (4.19 inch)this makes viewing of viedos and net surfing very good.I have viewed full HD video (1080p) on this phone and they play good but quality of 720p HD video is very good even on you tube.

Support for almost all kind of video formats.

Multitasking various application very fast.

Phone dosent get Hot as in case of SE Neo V.

Only ROYAL Users can know the gems hidden in SAMSUNG GALAXY R aka SAMSUNG GALAXY Royal.............

Was waiting for this phone for a long time. But at this price, the purpose of this phone as a trimmed down budget edition of sII is quite defeated. I would have liked it to be priced round abt. 23-24. But I guess thn it wud have crept in the market of S plus. Rite now will wait for a month for the price to stabilise. Or wait for Galaxy W.

Plz dont go by the review coz the phone price has reduced by 10k since then

Galaxy R initially came out at 30.5k and hence so many negative reviews because at the same price you get Galaxy S2 which is the best phone is the market. Period.

But now that the price has been slashed by 10k ( Galaxy R priced around 20k now), there is no better phone going around the market now if you are looking for absolute in-depth performance plus a great investment. It has DUAL CORE 1Ghz Tegra 2 processor which itself increases the multi tasking abilities way beyond normal. Add to that 1GB RAM, LED Flash, internal memory of 7GB, NVIDIA chipset, a reasonable primary & secondary camera & a 4.2 inch screen which is way bigger than phones in its price range ( 20k).

Of course ppl think an S-LCD screen is a big negative but thats a marketing ploy. It is hardly inferior to Super AMOLED and to not consider the phone only based on the screen is amateurish to say the least coz any guy who is looking at buying a phone with focus on performance and not just 'cool' factor likes screen will buy this. Another important thing - it has 1GB RAM which is good for many upgrades in the future.

Conclusion : Buy if you are a guy who judges a phone based on its performance and other essential stuff. If you like the cool but unnecessary AMOLED screen (S-Plus- which has AMOLED but not good processor, RAM and no FLASH) you might as well buy a... errr... JUST GET THE GALAXY R, YOU WONT REGRET IT!

27k? you really don't want to buy it

what was samsung thinking? better off buying optimus 2x if you want a tegra 2 phone (for gamers of course). 22-24 was a good price for this phone. Optimus 2x has a much better camera and a much better IPS display. Also the LG android skin is lightweight compared to the touchwiz crap.And dont forget that the Optimus 2X has a Gorilla glass display making it scratch-proof. And there is a great replacement in CyanagenMod if you dont like the firmware the company offers. And those naysayers thinking 512 MB RAM on Optimus @X is not enough, think again. Even the iphone 4S released last week has only 512 MB RAM!!

Web Browsing experience/HDMI/Camera

The lovely screen on the SGR is awesome, combined with the dual core processor and good software the web browsing experience is a pleasant one.

On the other hand, O2X sucks while loading pages. It is mighty choppy (check online too) due to the crappy software. You have other options to root it to improve performance, but why risk the warranty for a year?!

And instead of HDMI you can use AllShare (DLNA) to connect your phone to TV. Else, simply copy files to USB and view (takes less than 10 mins). Agreed that you cant view your mobile screen on tv, but with a SC LCD 4.2 inch screen, why would you do it except to see movies?

Camera is 5 MP and captures 720p video@30f but can play 1080p. O2X captures 1080p videos but at reduced framerate making the viewing experience choppy (atleast in Froyo release). Also, O2X struggles to display 1080p youtube videos (maybe due to the 512 MB RAM)

Main advantage of O2X is if you are a skilled Smartphone user, so that you can make use of the online forums for updates and ROOTs. There is a massive community for O2X. Plus the LG's official update about ICS after LG users complained in Facebook!

SGR forum has come up in XDA-Dev on 23-Dec-11 and is gaining momentum :) Also there is a promise from Samsung for ICS update.

Awesome Device

This device is awesome. The negative reviews are mostly because of the high launch price or in comparison to the O2X. Having used both, I can say that this is clearly better. Go for it, you won't regret it.

Not worth it

A lot of people think that The Sam R is a cheaper version of the S2 but that is not the case.It does not have Gorilla glass and the speaker is very feeble even in full volume,you can barely here it on crowded environments.And the LG Optimus 2X is so much better
