Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5800 review – deals, rates and tariffs

Category : Mobile Phones, Samsung

A high end touch screen Smartphone, the Galaxy Apollo I5800 utilises the Android operating system allied to an extremely user friendly interface. This 3G equipped smart-phone comes with an amazingly sensitive 3.2 inch capacitive touch-screen, 3.1 megapixel camera (with face/motion detection, picture geo tagging and video recording capabilities), music player, integrated Google search, and a whole host of networking, messaging and communication features.

The Galaxy Apollo i5800 and the the Apollo i5801 are often confused, the only real difference is the i5801 version features a silver bezel, appearance aside, essentially they are the same phone.

The Galaxy Apollo i5800 is available in black or white, both have a sleek and smooth appearance. The most obvious feature is the 3.2 inch touch screen with the navigation and call keys below. The screen offers up to 16 million colours with 240 pixel by 400 pixel resolution and auto rotation between landscape and portrait modes.

Entertainment is the name of the game with the Galaxy Apollo. Music, video, radio and gaming are all covered. The music player supports all popular file formats such as MP3, WAV & eAAC+, the radio has RDS with FM tuning, and high resolution video playback is offered in MPEG4, MWV, DivX, H263 & H264.

In terms of communication and connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5800 does not disappoint. Staying in touch with SMS, MMS and Google mail is straightforward and with easy access provided to social networks like Twitter, MySpace and Facebook, status updates are only ever a couple of clicks away.

A GSM and 3G capable handset, the battery on the Apollo i5800 will provide around 15 hours of talk time (and up to 625 hours of standby) for GSM and slightly less over the more powerful 3G network. GPS satellite navigation is built in with Google maps application and the microSD memory slot can accept up to 32Gb (a 1Gb memory card is supplied in retail pack). Additionally the Galaxy Apollo I5800 is WiFi enabled allowing easy and fast connection to local wireless LAN.

Advantages: Smooth transitions and sensitive touchscreen, simple and responsive navigation, great camera, good music and video player, standard 3.5mm headphone jack, multi-touch for page zooming,

Disadvantages:
Android skins can be confusing, sometimes there are simply too many options and widgets to choose from, no LED flash on camera, 324 x 240 resolution for video player is not in the same league as the Samsung Galaxy S with 720 pixels.

A great phone with a very competitive price right now from Orange, O2, Vodafone, T mobile and 3.
