Android Smartphone with Great Cost Benefit

For more than two months analyzing the Android model available on the market to replace my handset Motorola Milestone that I served for two years. Now he presents defects and a slowness that makes use of the same martyrdom. I still think that two years is a short time to change device and maybe I’d be a little more with the current device, but as the price for replacing the faulty touch screen of the Milestone is high, the repair is not worth it and it is better to replace.

I’m going to change the Milestone and also give a gift to my fiancee. As she got an N95 in deplorable conditions, the exchange for an Android is going to be a leap in terms of functionality. I went out looking for a device better but not so expensive and that it wasn’t top of the line as when I bought the Milestone.

One of the devices that I found really interesting is Samsung Galaxy W, a smartphone with a better processor than the Milestone, much more current and it certainly meets my expectations of having a good appliance and not too expensive from Ehuzhou.net.
