As you all know that Samsung is into the manufacturing of Android incorporated phones, it has now taken a few steps ahead in manufacturing Android mobiles. It first crawled into this world of Android in June 2009 by manufacturing Samsung galaxy i7500. In succession to i7500 mobile, it released Behold II and Moment which were also Android mobiles. Now, it is looking into giving us Galaxy Spica i5700, which is named after the constellations’ biggest star Virgo, Spica. In Europe, this is the second Android based phone to be released.
We had the rumors that this handset would be made lighter than the previous versions but things turned to fall out differently. This Samsung Spica’s has in-built Android version 1.5 and 800MHz processor. This can even support the file format like DivX / XviD. This mobiles’ design is as same as the i7500 Galaxy phone but it’s been enriched to look more like juvenile and comes in two eye-catching colors viz., green-white blend and red-black mishmash.
Over to the dimensions, it is similar to that of the Galaxy i7500 but Spica is a bit fatty phone than the previous phone, though it’s not a much worrying factor. Spica has a screen size of 3.2-inch with capacitive in nature. Resolution of this screen is around 320 x 480 pixels and thus supporting 16 million colors. The image quality is grand and awesome with beautiful, saturated colors which are because of AMOLED technology. Lamentably, Spica i5700 is a device which is die-hard fan of fingerprints and thus troubles the viewer in sunlight.
The layout of keys is quite different but front keys are almost of same fashion with some more additional buttons. The key which is at the center is featured with the pretty frame which is red in color, enhances the beauty of the phone and its screen. D-pad is also present as it is there in the previous handset. The Home screen key is transparent and is provided with its own symbol. There is a new button present on the left side of the phone used for performing the committed search operation in various apps like calendar, contacts, Google, messaging etc., is made translucent.
No major grips have been provided with any of the buttons. The only issue that bugs up is the backlighting which makes you feel uncomfortable while handling it in dark. Buttons on the either side of the phone is similar to that of i7500 i.e., on the left side is the volume rocker and on the right is the camera shutter option, screen unlock / lock key slider and added feature of microphone which is used in video capturing and to the top of the phone is the micro USB and 3.5mm port. Back side of the phone is not that much glossy but it’s not slippery though, thus making it handy while on use. The camera is 3.2MP without flash but we need more information yet to get into any conclusion. Though we have no complaints about the phone, we even don’t have anything to boost it. Let’s wait and see till the phone gets totally manufactured and arrives into the market.
