The Samsung I5500 Galaxy 5 is an Android operating system-based smartphone whose standard version is 2.1 (Eclair) which is upgradable to 2.2 (Froyo). Each upgrade does expand the pool of available apps to which the smartphone is available. At the moment, there are more than 200,000 Android apps available.

Closely aligned to the Android operating system, which is also the base of Google functionality, one has access to Google Search, Maps, Gmail (Google mail), Google Talk (Gtalk) and now Google’s new social networking service called Google+ or Circle. The I5500 also offers social media integration allowing access to YouTube. Aside from all of the standard integrated Google features, the I5500’s imaging ability offers smile recognition ability (the camera “sees” the smile or actually waits for it and then snaps an image), as well as video recording.

The Samsung I5500’s autofocus 2MP camera offers geotagging so one can indicate where an image was taken. The I5500 also features built-in GPS Navigator with A-GPS support. By using the right combination of Google Earth and Maps, one can have a mobile navigation device that allows you to find chart and find a route to your destination.

Network-capable, the I5500 features WiFi networking as it recognizes the 802.11 b/g/n. Because of the wide range of networking recognition available the I5500 will not only operate in most enterprise-style WiFi networks. These are the types of wireless networks that are supported by older routers. In addition, if you install the Android 2.2 upgrade, the I5500 recognizes public hotspots so one has Internet access in most areas one is likely to travel to. The I5500 is compatible with AT+T and T-Mobile networking that is based on the GSM service. A quad-band device, it operates on the 800, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz frequency bands. It also offers 3G HSDPA networking on the 900 and 2100 MHz bands, using GPRS/Edge. The I5500 is not compatible with CDMA networks such as those offered by Verizon or Sprint.

Standard features of the Samsung I5500 include stereo recording and stereo radio that is compatible with the Roadway Digital Service that indicates not only the station tuned but its format on-screen. The I5500′ memory can be expanded through easily available microSD memory cards to 16 GB. One should find that 16 GB is more than enough for most applications, as well as imaging and some videography.

The capacitive touchscreen is highly responsive and features automatic tilt sensing so you can use it either in portrait mode or it will automatically migrate to landscape mode if you tilt it to the side. Response is a little sluggish, at times, although this might be due low-battery charge.

The I5500 offers closely integrated phonebooks and calendar apps. One of the interesting features of the phonebook is the degree of its integration into the smartphone sphere. On opening the phonebook, one is presented with a variety of numbers and icons that allow you to touch an SMS or SNS icon and the proper screen appears so one can enter the proper text into the application. The I5500 also offers close integration with Facebook and Outlook calendars.

Available at an affordable price, the sleek I5500 is 4.2 inches by 2.5 inches by 0.5 inches. It weighs a mere 5.5 ounces and features 9 hours of talk time with a full battery charge and 520 hours of standby time from its lithium-ion battery pack.
