Samsung Galaxy W

Ever since Samsung announced its new system of naming the Galaxys, Samsung hs made sure they release atleast one model in each brand name.Though the Galaxy S line gets all the attention, other galaxys like the Samsung Galaxy W I8150 will see plenty of action too. With a 3.7″ screen, it’s more compact than the original Galaxy S, but it uses the same souped-up chipset that ticks inside the S Plus.

If you’re after SuperAMOLED, the Galaxy S and S Plus are the phones to go to. The LCD screen of the Samsung Galaxy W I8150 has the same WVGA resolution as the S-line, which means higher pixel density (252ppi vs. 233ppi). And, we’re talking proper RGB pixels here, rather than PenTile.
The Galaxy W uses the Qualcomm MSM8255T chipset (1.4GHz CPU, Adreno 205 GPU), which has been used in several upgrades of popular phones – the Galaxy S Plus, obviously, but the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S too.
The Galaxy W is pretty high up Samsung’s ladder, but unlike the S and R premium lines, the emphasis here is on value for money. And you do get quite a bit of features – here’s the summary.

Samsung Galaxy W – Dislikes

  • All plastic construction
  • Display image quality worse than Galaxy S Plus
  • No memory card enclosed and only 2GB of built-in storage

Now with all these Samsung Galaxys gloating around, Samsung has indeed given me further options to choose from, it wont be long before we loose track of what is what. I appreciate the intentions of Samsung to cater to the wide variety of people, but at least they can use a different name tag for their smartphones.We have had enough Galaxys.. what say?
