Samsung Galaxy S Advance To Land On 30th Of April

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S Advance will be available via Phones4U and Vodafone from the 30th of April; the smartphone slots between the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S2 and will fight the likes of the Motorola Atrix and the LG Optimus L7.

The phone, Samsung says, has the same "sleek and stylish design" as the Galaxy S2 and succeeds to the Galaxy S Plus. It was launched back in February at Mobile World Congress and can be had from around £325 from Amazon which is slightly expensive for what it is given that the Galaxy Nexus, the Galaxy Note and the S2 cost between £50 and £75 more.

The Galaxy S Advance has a dual core processor clocked at 1GHz, a 4in 800 x 480 pixel Super AMOLED display, HSPA connectivity, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Samsung TouchWiz, Samsung Hubs, Chat On, 768MB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, GPS, a microUSB port, Bluetooth 3.0, a five megapixel camera with a front facing one and a thickness of only 9.7mm.

Unfortunately for Samsung, there are much better phones out there for the same outlay or just a tad more, either from HTC, Motorola, Samsung itself, LG or Sony Mobile.
