This mobile set suffered some problems and its production was stopped due to hardware problems. Many people reported that the phone had gone dead, and was not able to boot even after the re-setting the mobile phone and many other issues. Samsung started replacing the Galaxy R Handset with Galaxy S. This problem was specifically noticed in the phones released in India. There has been no official stance taken by Samsung. Limited stock release remains the reason stated by many of its dealers and customer service centers.
The Galaxy R features 1 GB of dedicated RAM and 8 GB of internal mass storage. Within the battery compartment there is an external microSD card slot.
The Samsung Galaxy R uses a 108.5-millimetre (4.27 in) WVGA Super CLEAR LCD (SC-LCD) capacitive touchscreen. It has a 4.2" 16 million colours screen, without using the Pentile matrix.
On the back of the device is an 5-megapixel camera with single LED flash that can record videos in high-definition 720p. There is also a fixed-focus front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calling, taking photos as well as general video recording. The video recording has been criticized for the lack of focus.
