Web Browsing And Connectivity On The New Samsung Galaxy R

Recently we have been taking a look at various aspects of the Samsung Galaxy R, a new mid range smartphone from the Korean manufacturers. This time we explore the web browser that is used on this model and we also take a look at the connectivity options that are available.

Android mobile phones have always boasted great web browsers and the Samsung Galaxy R is no exception. Tabbed browsing is supported by the device which means that you can have several web pages open at the same time and then simply select the page that you wish to view. You can access the tabbed browsing view via the menu bar located at the bottom of the screen or alternatively there has been a neat shortcut added to this model. When using the pinch to zoom facility if you reduce the page size below the minimum level the phone gives you a great overview of all the web pages that you currently have open. From this screen you can easily select the page that you want to view. Zoom mode can also be activated by a double tap on the phones display which is great if there are areas of text that you find to small to read easily. Users have the ability to set the brightness level of the browser independently from the overall level you set for the rest of the phone. This means that you can view internet sites at optimum quality without it having a negative effect on the battery life of your device.

The web browser on the Samsung Galaxy R includes Flash 11 support to help you achieve the best possible browsing experience. This feature means that you can view videos on sites such as YouTube without leaving the page. When we tested this facility it worked superbly even when playing back clips in 720P resolution. The inclusion of Flash facilities also means that user can play a variety of online games. In terms of connectivity the Galaxy R offers a wealth of different options to ensure that users can access the internet at all times. The phone can connect to a 3G network which offers extremely fast mobile data transfer speeds. If a 3G connection is not available then the phone also offers support for GPRS and EDGE networks. As you would expect the Galaxy R includes WiFi facilities meaning consumers can use Wireless LAN networks to achieve the ultimate online experience.

The Samsung Galaxy R is a superb phone with many great features. The web browser incorporated is really hard to beat and this is backed up by extensive connectivity options that ensure internet access is always available.

The Samsung Galaxy R and the White iPhone 4S are available now.
