Samsung Galaxy Fame
5 August 2013
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Fame is attractive, cheap and has a decent camera. It's let down though by its sluggish processor and lacklustre screen. Unless you're desperate to put a Samsung Galaxy phone in your pocket, you can spend your money more wisely elsewhere.
Conclusion: The design, camera and the inclusion of TouchWiz all help raise the Samsung Galaxy Fame above our initial expectations, but with a price tag of £130 and the fact that in practice the phone only truly excels at simple smartphone tasks like email, messaging and web browsing, we can’t recommend it without a little hesitation.
Pros: High quality design, Impressive camera, Premium features (TouchWiz Nature UX, NFC, front-facing camera etc)
Cons: Terrible screen, Disappointing battery life, Expensive, TouchWiz too heavy
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Fame comes out just ahead of its nearest rival the Galaxy Young because of its superior camera. But while its processor appeared better on paper, in practise the lack of RAM held it back and the larger screen actually has a slightly lower pixel count. It's a pretty good budget Android, but if you're not fussed about the camera, you might be better to save a few quid and plump for the Young.
Pros: Good range of Android features, good camera for the price
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Fame is perhaps one of the most stylish budget Android phones around, as its smooth corners and tiny frame are incredibly well built and it's perfectly comfortable to use single-handedly. However, while the Fame may look like it has the making of a first class budget phone, the screen and the hardware inside it quickly reveal its more modest capabilities.
Pros: Small dimensions, Cheaper price, NFC support, If we see it, we like it. We're talking about microSD card support. We put it in our "we liked" section a lot, but that is purely because it is omitted from so many modern smartphones. Having support for microSD cards really boosts the internal storage, of which the Samsung Galaxy Fame has very little. We also like the TouchWiz interface. It has got a lot better since its early days, increasing to become a highly usable an...
Cons: Difficult texting, Low-res screen, Poor camera for 5MP, Our biggest bugbear is the processor. We've used phones with a single-core 1GHz processor before, and it wasn't too long ago that they were gracing the likes of the HTC Desire or the Samsung Galaxy S . They have since popped up in the cheaper devices and been fine, yet the Samsung Galaxy Fame really seems to suffer. Loading the camera app from the lock screen is the biggest culprit, with it taking more than a few...
Summary: Samsung’s Galaxy Fame doesn’t really offer enough for the price. The small display is low-res, and performance is disappointing. Battery life is mediocre – and there are better handsets out there for the money.
Pros: Decent outdoor shots from snapper; Compact design; support for NFC.
Cons: Laggy performance; Low-res small screen; Keyboard gripes.
Excerpt: Samsung lancerer her en billigere udgave i deres Galaxy serie - Samsung Galaxy Fame. En af de store fordele ved Galaxy Fame er, at den har indbygget NFC, Near Field Communication, der er en trådløs netværksteknologi, som fungerer på helt korte afstande. Med NFC teknologi er det eksempelvis muligt at benytte mobilen som betalingsmiddel i flere og flere forretninger.
