Samsung I9103 Galaxy R review: Riding shotgun

25 January 2012
The Samsung I9103 Galaxy R rode in on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform and became the first affordable dual-core smartphone from the South Korean company. With a bright SC-LCD screen and brushed metal back, the Galaxy R is just different enough...

man this phone is a dream. this ULP Tegra2 can run demanding games without cuts.

seen that Galaxy sII phone in game tests not those useless benchmarks and man, on paper it looks good, but in real life, sometimes it cuts. Tegra 2 behaved as expected from a nNidia product.

Whats the use of this review. GSMarena.com is so late with this full review. This model has been discontinued and is not available anywhere in Mumbai.

In response to query by "k!"

This phone is only available in one colour - and that is metallic grey. Sites that mention "black" as it's colour are just not being accurate :)

You forgot an important bit in the review: IT's GETTING AN UPDATE TO ICE CREAM SANDWICH!!!

Great phone, I've owned it for about two months now. Dual core and tegra 2 lets you play high res games and cam quality is great! Latest version of Droid gingerbread + IT's GETTING AN UPDATE TO ICE CREAM SANDWICH!

I bought it off Sulekha website and got it for about Rs. 11,000 cheaper than the S II (which is about 140 or $200 when converted). The S-II sells for Rs.30 K and this phone cost me Rs.19 K with a good deal.

Moreover, the S-plus is costlier than this phone in India. Sensation XL is almost as pricey as the S II so buying this phone was a no brainer!

Considering this phone is like a little brother to the S-II, you couldn't ask for more!
