The Samsung Galaxy R is one of the new additions to the impressive Samsung Galaxy range of smartphones. Released recently, it looks set to enjoy the similar levels of success as its counterpart the Galaxy S2.
In this article I will provide an overview of its key features so you can decide if this is the right smartphone for you.
The handset measures up at 125x 66x 9.5mm and weighs in at 135 grams, so it is reasonably light weight and very slimline. The front of the handset is dominated by the 4.2 inch SC-LCD capacitive touchscreen which boasts a resolution of 480x 800, so its image display quality is certainly up to par. The screen enjoys the benefits of several other features such as gyro, proximity and accelerometer sensors, and touch sensitive shortcut keys at the base of the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy R has a generous 8 GB of internal storage provided as standard, which is at the users’ disposal for storing music, tracks, videos, downloaded apps, photos and other files. 8 GB should be plenty for the average user to begin with, and when further storage is requires, one can simply install a micro SD card into the device, expanding storage by up 32 GB.
Internet browsing is fast, efficient and simple with this device; which calls upon both HSDPA connections (in areas with 3G coverage) and Wi-Fi whenever users have the appropriate access to local wireless networks. The Samsung Galaxy R boasts Adobe Flash support so when it comes to viewing Flash content such as embedded games or videos, no websites are out of bounds. And because this device runs the Android OS it comes with the standard package of Google apps, which add to the convenience of web browsing.
As you would expect, the device also boasts an impressive digital camera. The Samsung Galaxy R is equipped with a 5 megapixel unit which operates at a resolution of 2592x 1944, so it is capable of taking very good quality still images. Smile detection and autofocus are included as standard (with several other photography apps available from the Android Market), making the task of taking quality photos that little bit more convenient. The camera can of course shoot video, and this is in 720p HD, and there is a secondary camera on the front of the handset which can be sued for video calls.
Running the latest smartphone version of Android (v2.3 aka Gingerbread), users have a versatile, easy to use and customisable interface. This innovative software is perfectly matched with a 1 GHz processor which ensures those software applications and indeed many aspects of the hardware run to their optimal capacitates.
The Samsung Galaxy R is a smartphone which has appeal for many different types of user. Whether you plan to use the phone for business, social networking, web browsing, taking photos or playing music, it has the features to make this a very versatile handset.
