Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 User Manual & Tech Specs

First of all, let me clear the means of “Y” letter on this Samsung Galaxy Y for. It actually stand for Young. Y for Young. By this, we could make a conclusion that Galaxy Y by Samsung is specially marketed for teenager and also anyone who cover the “young” meaning (20 to 27 old unmarried person can be categorized as young, IMO). Furthermore, the colorful body options available for Galaxy Y also indicated this Phone as for Young person, whether they are girls or boys. Pink color absolutely very suitable for girls, metallic colors for boys and also had two common colors, white and black (see the detail of this four 4 colors of Galaxy Y on “Specifications” tab).

Another good news is, even Galaxy Y is Samsung Android Phone, you can have this smartphone with quite “low budget”, only around 100USD without contract aka Global Phone Unlocked. Therefore it very suitable for “young’s pocket budget”. But, how about the performance? about the hardware? Are they also “low”? Don’t underestimated, even though the budget quite low for Samsung Android Smartphone, and also not as good as high-end Smartphone (such as Galaxy S II), the specs hardware of Galaxy Y, not as low as its price. See the detail I elaborate in bot tech specs of this touch bar form factor phone under “Specifications” tab.

When you encounter that your Galaxy Y frozen / freezes, or your S5360 hangs and the touchscreen stop responding, you can do the soft reset aka (restarting) by pressing and hold for 8 to 10 seconds the power button and then released. That would give you a soft reset by rebooting your Galaxy Y. In Condition rebooting the device isn’t gave you a solution, you can try to make Hard / Master Reset aka Factory Reset. Please follow my quick instruction below:

Home Screen > Menus > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset > Reset phone > Erase Everything.

Because performing hard reset would erase all your data and applications including downloaded games, before you do this please back up your data first. Using Samsung Kies to transfer you data from Galaxy Y Phone to PC would be gave you a good back up.

But if you don’t want to do factory reset, you can alternatively to try to remove unused applications or game or data in order to get the phone storage enough space.
