The high-end smartphones from the big manufacturers are of course the most ground-breaking and exciting products. However, not everyone has the budget for buying them separately, and getting tied to a two or three-year subscription isn't always the...

Samsung's sleek Galaxy S3 is one of our favourite Android smartphones, but it's currently very expensive. The new Galaxy Advance GT-i9070 launched just before it, on the other hand, is a little more affordable.There is more than a whiff of the...

Samsung seems to be aiming to fill a whole universe with phones that have Galaxy in the name. The latest of the bunch is the Galaxy S Advance that we're looking at here and which is something of a mash-up of the original Galaxy S and the hugely...

The Advance is mainly hindered by an ­outdated operating system. It misses out on a lot of cool features offered by Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) as it runs on...

Despite its ageing operating system, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance remains a handy handset for those looking for a cheap smartphone with many of the features found in the top smartphones. For those on a budget, the Galaxy S Advance is still worth a...

The Samsung Galaxy S Advance is a souped-up version of the Galaxy S that looks like a smaller S2 but packs a curved Super AMOLED screen. Its specs won't blow your socks off, but they're not bad if you're in the market for a mid-range...

Entering an area of the market filled with competition, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance sets itself apart on a hardware front more than on the software side of things. Relatively samey to phones that have preceded it, the handset's saving grace is one...

As we said at the start, there are plenty of mid-market phones around, so there are plenty to compare the Samsung Galaxy S Advance with. The Galaxy S II also has a dual-core processor, along with a better snapper and Android Ice Cream Sandwich...

In conclusion I would say that this phone is one of the better mid-range handsets out there. I would say it felt a little plastic and the camera wasn't really up to previous Samsung devices' standards but was sufficient. However I felt that the...

Just like a showdown between the Nelson and the Dreadnought, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance blows the HTC One V out of the water with a single salvo. When it comes to hardware, it’s better in every way. The screen is larger and more lustrous, there’s...

Samsung has come up with a great mid ranged handset in the Galaxy S Advance. It looks good, performs well, and hits that sweet spot between being too large and offering a big enough screen to really enjoy. It is missing out by not running Android 4...

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance has absolutely no major drawbacks, which makes it a splendid mid-range Android device. We are more than content with its design, the hardware has no troubles handling every day tasks with ease, and the in-call...

When it graced our desk, the Galaxy S2 stood out as being pretty special, but it was pricey. Unless you could afford a £35-a-month contract or more than £400 for the handset SIM-free, you weren't getting one. Unless your dad was Lee...

Pick a screen size, a set of specs and a price point, and chances are Samsung has an Android smartphone that fits the bill. As the leading Android manufacturer, Samsung has a ridiculous number of phones on the market, and that’s particularly true...

The Galaxy S Plus, Galaxy SL and the Galaxy R must be anxiously looking at each other wondering which one will need to move aside to make room for the newcomer. We don't think any of them needs to worry too much. It's the original Galaxy S that...

While dual-core processors are a common trait when high-end smartphones are concerned, mid range devices pretty much always stick to single-core CPUs. But not the Samsung Galaxy S Advance – inside it ticks a 1GHz dual-core chipset made by...
