Samsung has been one of those companies (alongside HTC) that have taken great advantage of Google’s Android mobile OS. With its Galaxy line-up, Samsung has placed a mobile phone in every price segment (and one even amongst tablets) and the I5801 Galaxy 3 replaces the Galaxy Spica as the new mid-range Android smartphone from Samsung.

...the combination of Samsung's own TouchWiz UI and the Android UI makes for a good looking and simple to use UI.


The Samsung Galaxy 3 is the big brother of the Galaxy 5, and as a result, its specs represent a complete upgrade over the Galaxy 5. The Galaxy 3 has a 3.2-inch TFT capacitive display with 16M color output and a resolution of 240x400. It has a 3.15MP autofocus camera (no flash) that can record QVGA videos at 15fps.

Of course, the Galaxy 3 supports Wi-Fi, 3G and GPS. It runs on Android v2.1 and a 2.2 upgrade is somewhere on the horizon. The Galaxy 3 is powered by a 667MHz processor, has 256MB RAM and accepts microSD cards up to 32GB.

Like the Wave and the Galaxy S, Samsung bundles plenty of pre-installed apps on the Galaxy 3. These include AllShare, using which you can use your phone as a media server; Layar, the augmented reality app and the ThinkFree office suite among others. You can obviously download more apps and games from the Android Market according to your needs.
