The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is one to watch; it’s the first mid-range dual-core Android phone that we heard of in 2012 and is in some ways Samsung’s answer to the HTC One S.
Though not bleeding edge, there’s some pretty decent hardware to obsess over. A 1GHz dual-core chip besides, there’s a 4-inch Super AMOLED display which just looks great on the S Advance. The 800×480 (WVGA) resolution might not be particularly high, but things don’t look glaringly enlarged or pixellated on the Galaxy S Advance. The Super AMOLED has great constrast and the viewing angles are all pretty good too.
The Samsung Galaxy S Advance looks and feels a lot like a miniature Samsung Galaxy S2. Super-lightweight, its body is many composed of shiny plastics and the back cover has the same textured grip of the S2, Samsung Galaxy Ace and many of Sammy’s Android phones.
The 5-megapixel main camera can shoot HD video at 720p. You’ll have the option of buying 8GB and 16GB editions of the Samsung Galaxy S Advance when it hits the shelves; Three, Clove and Expansys will be selling it so keep an eye out. Naturally there’s a microSD card slot available should you wish to bulk out the memory (up to 32GB).
