The Samsung Galaxy S Plus certainly makes sense for the buyer who doesn't want to spend over the head on the latest technology. The company is probably justified not to make any big noise about it. Though the phone would not come in the category of cheap smartphones, it is undeniably slated to be a hit with the buyers.
The Galaxy S Plus has all the connectivity issues covered. It comprises quad-band EDGE/GSM/SPRS, besides the tri-band HSPA with an upload rate of 5.76 mbps and a download rate of up to 14.4 mbps. This is twice as fast as the HSDPA speed of any of its predecessors.
The 8GB storage space of the phone is another scoring point. Peers of the Galaxy S Plus severely lacks in this regard. Moreover, the handset supports micro SD cards up to 32 GB. The slot for the micro SD card is located under the battery cover. The phone also comprises 2 GB of ROM and 1.5 GB space to install applications. The phone's 3.5 mm audio jack completes its connectivity tally. You need not search for compatible headphones and can plug in your favorite headphone to listen to music.
Users intending to upgrade themselves from the earlier Galaxy S are unlikely to consider buying the Galaxy S Plus. It can be called as a more affordable alternative to the current flagship i. e. Galaxy S II. The phone is certainly all set to capture the eye of the connoisseur with kits features which is available at a really competitive price. What is also likely to work for the phone is its eye-catching looks, coupled with a very attractive form factor.
