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 c

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 havi

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 scree

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.

Dont go by the bad reviews!!!

The reviews given to the phone were true only till the price of the phone was not dropped u must see that who will buy a phone with such specs for somewhere around 27000. Also at that price point The awesome SII stands tall and u will surely add some more money to buy it but now when there is a price cut the phone is an excellent buy. I bought this phone from a dealer near my house for the same price as flipkart and i am completely satisfied with the performance of the phone. The point raised by many about the supremacy of 2x is absolutely correct because it has better specs than this phone bu

Value for Money

Just called up the Samsung customer care centre for enquiries...they confirmed that this DOESN'T have a GORILLA GLASS display. Another thing they cleared out was that the cell has 8GB internal memory; but the cell will show only 6 GB as available because the remaining 2 GB is for the user interface and apps ( you wont be able to detect it, so the ACTUAL internal memory available is 6 GB)....GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME..NO COMPLAINTS!
Another thing I advice is that the rates will NOT fall further due to the rupee devaluation....rather they MIGHT RISE. They might if you wait for another 8-10 months; b

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

Excellent Phone

Just bought this phone a week back - Excellent performance till now. Very mature hardware platform with none of the over heating or battery problems associated with the Samsung Galaxy S2. Battery life especially is excellent - I am easily getting almost 1.5 to 2 days with 3 push emails that are active all time and internet/videos for about 1.5-2 hours per day. Very pleased indeed.

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

Great dual core smartphone with ICS update announced

This phone is just great and after using few smartphones, i can feel the power of dual core when launching multiple apps and switching between apps..
My 2 cents on this magnificent piece of hardware..

Pros: 1. super lcd is crisp clear and battery friendly.
2. dual core with 1 ghz speed.. is quite handy when you are running maps and camera at the same time.. and calling someone in the middle of it..
3. 1 gb ram.. thats the best part.. because, it automatically qualifies for a ICS update. and you will get atleast 700 mb of ram even after heavy usage and killing all a
