Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 Android Smartphone

The Samsung Galaxy series is seemingly put on hold this 2012 compared to its grand entrance of different speculative models that shook the real Android market aboard. This Galaxy series possesses a lot of computing power and does not lack the ability to make users fully engaged in either games or entertainment. Especially with the Samsung Galaxy SII that totally shook the techie market, this series has a lot more of simply making people call and do SMS with the ultra-sensitive touchscreen. However, maybe due to the company’s need for more attention, a new Galaxy S series model has emerged and is showing up more ‘nude’ than ever: the Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070, or simply S-advance.

One big change noticeable in this design is the curve—not on the edges alone but on the whole body that includes the screen. The curve is basically designed for users to enjoy a more comfortable sensation while making calls. However, this doesn’t usually help that much since people are still happy with phones that do not have curves like this. Though this looks sexier and trendier for smartphones, the curve is also not friendly especially for gamers who put the device on top of the table and enjoy the multi-touch for the keypad. In short, it’s shaky.

But still putting the Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 on the sunny side, the smartphone features a very neat, glossy black design without putting too many distractions to ports and buttons. On the front surface, a virtually invisible vanity 1.3MP camera is placed above the 4.0” super AMOLED display. Below the screen is one rectangular home button, with two assistant touch-sensitive buttons beside it for the menu and return.

Beneath the Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 are the 3.5mm audio jack and the mini-USB port that unfortunately is left open. However, the sides do have the sleek design for an SD card slot, which is quietly covered without losing the easy swapping feature. At the back of the device is a solid 5.0MP camera with AutoFocus and a single LED flash. For the overall design, this new model from the Galaxy S series displays a lot of nudity while maintaining elegance.


Powered with a dual-core 1GHz processor and a 768MB RAM, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 is something worthy to brag no matter where the user is. Running under the getting-antique Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread), which is already going downtown with the introduction of the Ice Cream Sandwich, the device still performs the optimal way whether users do entertainment, calls, surfing the Internet, and more.

With a resolution of just 480x800p, the 4.0” display of the Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 is coated with the ever-powerful Super AMOLED Display capable of extracting out the most natural of colors in each pixel. With over 16 million in colors, the display is complemented with the model’s vivid 5MP camera that can shoot 30fps for a 720p video, or a still image with a resolution of 2560x1920p. Unfortunately, the flash is not totally good for professional-looking photo because of its too much white color that conceals the image.

Weighing just about 120grams, which is seemingly normal for smartphones, this device comes in handier with just a relative thinness of less than a centimeter. Wow! Light as it is, however, we hope this design can get a bit more durable enough to withstand the scratches and bumps that can cost the investment.

Lastly, one thing that made the Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 so fun to use is the conclusive and speedy Wi-Fi connection. The device easily detects external signals and immediately records them on the screen. Internet experience is a breeze with almost no pauses for a smoother connectivity experience.

This sexy Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 is definitely worth its price of around $540. It’s good for business people who are always on the call using the handset because of the slightly curved design, but not for games masters who want to extract more juice from a smartphone as handy as this.
