As you know Samsung, the consumer electronics maker has got really good department of phones where smart phones are given first priority and low end comes later on. Samsung’s better hardware build, potential to keep their phone updated to latest operating system and the price factor brought Samsung’s high end phones into lime light which soon got enough popularity. Let’s talk about the phones according to their popularity.

1. Samsung Galaxy S II

Announced at MWC 11, it’s the first dual core phone from Samsung and one of the best available in the market right now. I’ve already reviewed Samsung Galaxy S II as soon as it was out. The hardware specifications are out of the world even the iPhone 4 couldn’t compete it. If you are on high budget and want a single phone which can replace your surfing machine, Galaxy S II is way good option for it.

2. Samsung Galaxy S

First powerful phone from Samsung which can be truely called as a smart phone. Galaxy S was last year’s release after the Apple iPhone 4 was out. Basically Galaxy S was a competitor for iPhone 4 which almost had same hardware specs and much lower price. That was the plus point why Samsung Galaxy S got popularity, even today the phone gets enough customers because of its price factor. Since Galaxy S II is demon in the market the pre demon becomes the Galaxy S. Buyers who are on low and strict budget and want an smart phone can go for Galaxy S.

3. Samsung Google Nexus S

Manufactured by Samsung and sold as official Google phone the Nexus S became the first phone to get Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). However this phone hit the Indian shores very late and has same hardware specs as that of Galaxy S. The only positive point behind buying Nexus S is the official Google phone and that’s why every new Android update first hit’s the Nexus family before reaching other Android phones in the market.

  • CPU: 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor
  • Camera: 5MP Primary, VGA Secondary
  • OS: Android 2.3
  • Price: Rs. 19999/- INR

4. Samsung Galaxy SL

Galaxy SL is low end version of Galaxy S, since the pricing of Galaxy S is extremely high. People who had the desire to buy Galaxy S like smartphone now had the option called Galaxy SL. There is no great difference between Galaxy S and Galaxy SL infact both run on same processors have same camera. “L” in the name states its LCD, yes, the Super AMOLED of Galaxy S is replaced by LCD display in SL thus decreasing the price. Even there is 4GB version available in Galaxy SL, likewise in performance both are same.
  • Display: 4.0inch SC-LCD
  • Storage: 4GB/16GB
  • Memory: 478MB RAM
  • CPU: 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor
  • Camera: 5MP Primary, VGA Secondary
  • OS: Android 2.3
  • Price: Rs. 19900/- INR

5. Galaxy Ace

Galaxy Ace is an entry level smart phone, unlike the lower end phones from Samsung which run on Android. Galaxy Ace actually has better hardware than other Samsung phones below it. This hardware makes it capable to run Gingerbread on it too. At such a low price expecting AMOLED is stupidness even Galaxy SL doesn’t provide the same and so Galaxy Ace got TFT Display panel on 3.5inch screen. The CPU doesn’t reach the GHz mark but is stopped till 800MHz however you can overclock the phone, that’s the different part though. Wish to get a really cool phone in low budget, there’s no other choice than Galaxy Ace.
