Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores

 

Yep, you read that right. Affordable and dual core wouldn't normally belong in the same sentence. In 2011. And you don't need to press fast forward. Just sit back and enjoy. There's a lot stewing in the industry's pot and we think the place smells of...

Samsung I9103 Galaxy R review: Riding shotgun

 

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support, 4.2" 16M-color SC-LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution; Scratch-resistant glass, Android OS v2.3.3 with TouchWiz 4 launcher, 1 GHz dual-core...

SC-LCD has poor black levels, Tegra 2 falls slightly behind Exynos in CPU and GPU performance, No dedicated camera key, Non-hot-swappable microSD card

The Samsung Galaxy R I9103 stops a few paces from the top in Samsung's Android lineup, but you can tell that the R&D for the top dogs has trickled down the ranks. The camera quality when compared to other Galaxy models has definitely improved, if you...

Samsung I9103 Galaxy R preview: First look

 

The Galaxy S lineup is no stranger to versioning - the original Galaxy S relied on half a dozen different editions to achieve its market success. Its successor will obviously take a similar path as we just got its first body double in the face of the...

Samsung Galaxy R pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

In Samsung's latest mobile phone nomenclature, R stands for Royal and is second only to the S or Super range. So, to take a closer look at the Samsung

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy A30 hands on review

 

The middle child of Samsung's Galaxy A series of devices

Vibrant Super AMOLED screen ; Sizable battery life ; Fast user interface

Camera effects weren't reliable ; Felt a tiny bit unwieldy

The Samsung Galaxy A30 is a good looking device, with a large and vibrant screen, although we're yet to be convinced by its camera capabilities.

Samsung Galaxy R Review

 

Beautiful display, Great in-call sound quality, Good battery life, Dual-core processor

Priced too close to the Galaxy S II, Cannot shoot 1080p video

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy R is one impressive smartphone that offers plenty of processing power packed up in one pretty slim body. It stands out with its great 4.2-inch display, and the in-call sound quality that it delivers is way above the...

Samsung Galaxy R Preview

 

The Samsung Galaxy R (also known as I9103) is the first handset to walk in the shoes of the Samsung Galaxy S II. A slightly stripped down version of Samsung's flagship, it wears similar looks, packs an equally powerful core and only downgrades the...

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: A great fit at a great price

 

The Samsung Galaxy Buds are a great option for those who want a first-party set of headphones at an affordable price. Apple should take note.
