The Samsung Galaxy Y includes Smart’s netphone technology which keeps you connected to Twitter, Facebook and Smartnet at zero cost as long as you have at least P1 in your account.
The box is colorful and eye-catching. The Android feel is apparent compared to Netphone 701 which comes in a flat black box. I guess the packaging design is to attract YOUNGer buyers.
The box has the following items: the unit, wall charger, microSD Adaptor, stereo headset, battery, manuals, Smart Netphone instructions, installer CD, and a micro USB charger.
The Netphone manual contains a concise, easy-to-follow illustrated guide in setting up and using the Samsung Galaxy Y.
Samsung Galaxy Y is very light and will fit inside the pocket. The corrugated steel ensures a no-slippage grip of the mobile, something most mobile makers fail to address.
For those who want to use the Samsung Galaxy Y as a Prepaid phone, you can get this netphone for as low as P4,999 through Smart Rewards. Check out the prepaid packs Smart offers.
