Samsung Galaxy R was one of the awaited smart phones by Samsung in India and it has finally arrived in India, but with a big price tag. You will be really disappointed after looking at the price tag of Rs. 27438. Though there is no official announcement by Samsung about the launch of the Samsung Galaxy R in India, but Flipkart have already started selling the phone in India, which for sure means it is being launched.
Samsung Galaxy R is definitely a high end smart phone, but this price is going a bit high for it. And that in the presence of such a successful phone Samsung Galaxy S II/2. Samsung Galaxy S II/2 is available for the price of Rs. 30000. Hardly there is a difference of 1.5k between both the Samsung Galaxy S II/2 and Samsung Galaxy R. But the specifications have some noticeable differences. And one of the big differences is with the display. Samsung Galaxy S II/2 has super AMOLED Plus touchscreen while Samsung Galaxy R lack on that part. It has SC-LCD Capacitive touchscreen.
Now let us go through full specification of Samsung Galaxy R which will clear the picture whether it is worth of buying for Rs. 27438.
