Googling up the phone's specs, I really don't know if it'd run anything new since it's got 290MB of RAM and 830 MHz single core processor. Do you have any games on there? Probably all the games with simple, 2D graphics from a year ago or before could run (such as Cut the Rope, Angry Birds), but I'm certain it won't run any 3D games released within the past year. Or even if it does, it'd be painful to play.

I've had experience with a device with similar specs - HTC Wildfire...I've had it for about 6 months. Budget devices are generally horrible for games for several reasons which I'll mention a bit later...fir things first, the specs of your Galaxy Y:

  • 830MHz ARM v6 CPU
  • 290MB RAM
  • 240x320, 3'' screen with 256k colors
  • 180MB internal memory
  • Android 2.3.5

The two biggest problems there, despite what one might think, are the lack of GPU and the screen resolution.

Believe it or not, screen resolution is a huge problem for both apps and games...many are just not meant to work in resolutions below 360p (recommended is always 480p though). That in combination with the lack of GPU pretty much guarantees that 3D games are a no-go.

Back in the days I used my HTC Wildfire, I was able to find a few games that played on an acceptable level though, so I'd say try those first...here's a list of the ones I remember working:

You might also want to try Pixel Dungeon, which is a recent game but still based on sprite-graphics and has a good chance to be playable aswell...and it's actually a really good game (I covered it in my blog if you need details): https://play.google....GVsZHVuZ2VvbiJd

 

If you're interested in gaming, I would advise you to pickup a used Samsung Galaxy S, HTC Desire HD (both are fairly cheap now) or any device with at least 1GHz CPU (preferably dual-core), 512MB RAM and Adeno 205/PowerVR540/Tegra 2 GPU. Those specs would be considered ok for entry level gaming.

I don't know much about overclocking, but I don't see what you can achieve by overclocking a single-core processor. The same and GPU are still quite weak compared to what we have today. At best, I'd like to think the difference will be minimal.

Not really worth it. As I said, the biggest issue is the lack of GPU in it, so all overclocking will do is slightly improve the framerate of games.

Well, give a shot to the Kairosoft games (they have demo versions, so try before you buy ftw)...they may not look like much, but trust me, they're really fun (I still play some of them even on my S2)

N.O.V.A. 3 on the galaxy Y? They used a modded apk, which makes the game run. That with a combination of chainfire will get you a 10-15fps playrate. Not really worth it.

I believe he meant N.O.V.A. 1....that one can reach 20-24fps I heard. The only way to buy it though is from the Gameloft Store (note: usually all games there are pretty outdated versions, so keep that in mind when buying from there!)...there were demo versions in the Samsung Games Hub and Samsung Apps but not sure if you can still download them.
