Full specs on the official site.
Above the screen it has the proximity sensor and the earpiece speaker. Under the screen there is the hardware home button and the touch sensitive controls: menu and back. At the top we find the 3.5mm jack and the microUSB port which is hidden under a sliding plastic lid. On the right side it has the power button while on the left side it has the volume keys and the microSD card slot covered by a plastic flap. At the bottom the phone has only the mouthpiece and the lanyard eyelet.
The TFT display has 3.3 inches. It has a pixel density of 121ppi and a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The resolution is QVGA. The displayed image is grainy and has poor contrast but the users need to accept this in a low-end smartphone.
The 5MP camera has autofocus but lacks a LED flash. The user interface is as on the Galaxy S with built- in features such as scenes, panorama and smile detection. The photos quality is decent with pleasing colors and contrast. Recorded videos have only QVGA resolution at 15 fps which is quite disappointing for a 5mp camera.
At connectivity the Galaxy Fit is quite good. It has 3G HSDPA speed up to 7.2 Mbps, Wi-Fi with b/g/n protocols, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP and a microUSB 2.0 port. The phone doesn’t have support from Adobe Flash but the browser does a good job.
On the hardware part we find a 600 MHz processor powered by Android 2.2 Froyo and helped by 280 Mb of RAM memory. The Android version can be updated to v2.3.6 Gingerbread. Internal memory has 178 Mb and it can be extended up to 32 GB through a microSD card. The phone has accelerometer, proximity and compass sensors. It also comes with stereo FM radio with RDS and GPS with A-GPS support.
Battery life is good. The 1350 mAh battery can keep the phone on for about 2-3 days of normal use. It can stay in standby for 642 hours and in talk time for 10 hours and 40 minutes. If you use 3G data the battery will drain very fast.
