Samsung I5700 Galaxy Spica is another Android phone recently launched in the Indian market. Samsung Galaxy Spica is the successor of the earlier released Samsung Galaxy Android phone from Tata DOCOMO. It’s a touch screen phone, although the screen size is slightly smaller than Samsung B7620. It runs on 800 MHz processor and supports 3G internet connectivity. You can use Chrome-Lite browser for surfing purpose that is lightweight and provides fast performance. It comes with 3 Megapixel camera with auto focus but no LED flash – a big disappointment here.
The best part is the 1,500 mAh Li-Ion battery that provides a backup of 7-10 hours.
