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.
