Grab two Samsung Galaxy smartphones for £80

You can get a pair of Samsung Galaxy Y smartphones from E2Save, which is a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse, for a mere £79.90, a price that excludes a compulsory £20 airtime top-up (or £49.95 including the top-up per phone). The phones are refurbished, come in white and are unlocked (although E2Save lists Vodafone as its default network).

The phone is a decent entry level model. It has Wi-Fi, 3G, a microSD card slot, GPS and a microUSB port for a start. It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7227 system-on-chip clocked at 832MHz with 256MB of RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 2-megapixel rear camera, a front facing camera, TouchWiz functionality and a 3in 480x320 capacitive display.

The Galaxy Y, which is a better option than the Galaxy Europa we saw a few days ago, weighs less than 100g, is 12mm thick and has a battery life of up to 380 minutes. This is not however our preferred entry level smartphone as it stands.

This gong goes to the Orange San Francisco II which sells for £60 with a £10 top up voucher and comes with a much better display, a faster processor, more storage capacity, a free pair of WeSC headphones and twice the amount of RAM.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
