By 04:05 Wed, 11 Aug 2021 Comments


You may have a hard time finding this one in the deluge of entry-level smartphones, for which Samsung is in no small part responsible. Don't worry, it will find you. The Samsung Galaxy Fit will be ready and set well before the thought of upgrading ever crosses your mind.

The times are long gone when smartphones were scary and complicated. Little green men were a hoax, the small green robots are the real deal. And Samsung are busy carrying out their plan. Match every touchclassy screen feature phone - every Corby and every Star - with a droid smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670

The Galaxy Fit is the next in line of mass-market smartphones as Samsung see to simply outnumber the competition where they cannot outplay or outsmart it. The Fit might seem like a minor update of the Galaxy Mini: a tad bigger classy screen and a 5 MegaPixel (MP) autofocus camera, but in that price range those are still significant arguments to have on your side.

The styling is a small bit subtler, but not in a way to expect it to appeal to business users or an older audience. That said, dropping the original working title of Galaxy Suit makes sense. It just sent the incorrect message about the dress code.

The Galaxy Fit doesn't have the features to be considered as a business tool. It's a bottom-of-the-food-chain kind of smartphone and it knows it. The friendly small gadacquire is on the cheap side of smartphones, but keen to deliver complete connectivity and above average imaging. The low-res classy screen is the flip side of the coin.
