I bought this because I had a glut of Tesco coupons lying around.. also, Tesco have this thing where the phone is €20 cheaper if bought with €20 of groceries.
Very grainy\fuzzy screen, probably just the limit on how much you can expand a 320x240 resolution.
Compared to the Samsung Europa, the Galaxy Y has awful viewing angles, awful.
(compare the two phones before having a go at me..)
The processor is a major plus, but the screen clarity isn't up to much.
A niggle for me, one of the shortcuts on the 'Phone Options' Menu (long press power button), has vanished.
The option was a simple single press option for 'Mobile Network ON\OFF', handy for people on Prepay, like myself.
Worth pointing out that the Europa will survive a hardy fall from a bed\table\etc, the back is stuck on like a limpet, whereas, with the Samsung Y, this is very unlikely, it has to have one of the flimsiest catchment set up for keeping the back on.
Oh well. A vanity purchase. I've learnt my lesson..
A much more responsive phone, but with drawbacks.
EDIT: just a warning, the Samsung Y sold at Tesco has a lot of junk packed with the OS, uncluding Adverts\Boards.
This wouldn't be a problem, but for the small matter of it having less internal memory than the Europa!
The old methods for unlocking *DO NOT WORK*, this might be unique to Tesco though, as they do seem to doctor their phones. (Re: Nokia 1616)
