Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review

Phone Arena
6 July 2012
  • Conclusion: We like the concept behind the Samsung Galaxy Pocket . This is the handset that can bring much of the power of a smartphone to the hands of yesterday's feature phone users, without costing them more. It covers pretty much every basic Android functionality, and manages to build on top of that by being able to run most of the applications found in the Google Play store.
  • Pros: Good performance, 3GB internal memory
  • Cons: Low-resolution screen

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review

5 July 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a decent phone considering the price point and the features on offer. The device has a good build, and the features and specifications will provide you with an entry-level Android experience. The screen size may be too small for some but in that case you can take a look at the Spice MI 350N. If you are considering picking up your first budget Android device, this phone should definitely be on your list.
  • Pros: Good, compact build, Good keyboard, 3GB internal memory, Hot swappable microSD card slot
  • Cons: No front facing camera, Screen size may be too small for some, No flash, Average camera

Mr. Mo reviews the Samsung Galaxy Pocket

25 June 2012
  • Conclusion: This is a top job by Samsung. If you need a budget smartphone, I certainly recommend the Galaxy Pocket. At about N18,000, it is the cheapest global brand smartphone that you can lay your hands on.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 review: Happy meal

GSM Arena
6 June 2012
  • Conclusion: No smartphones beyond this point. Lost so far in no-man's land between Symbian and Android, the point in question has been flagged on the map. Welcome to checkpoint Pocket. The Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a beginner's package. Be it screen resolution and size, processing power or imaging, smartphone specs don't get any more basic than that. To be fair though, smartphones almost never cost as little either.
  • Cons: Low screen resolution limits choice of apps, Fixed focus camera, No secondary camera, No camera flash, no dedicated camera key, QVGA video recording @15fps, No Adobe Flash support

Samsung S5300 Galaxy Pocket Review

6 April 2012
  • Excerpt: In the realm of aptly named products, Samsung’s Galaxy Pocket fits right in. With its tiny form and sporting Google’s smartphone OS, the Pocket is aiming at capturing the throne in the lower budget smartphone segment. Of course in doing so, it will have to outperform the likes of the Spice Mi-280 and 350n and their own Galaxy Y S 5630.

Review: Samsung Galaxy pocket - Good package small size

12 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a compact yet powerful phone. It comes with good features and the body is good too. Its Android 2.3 gingerbread is well supported in this device and the 832 MHz processor is strong too. It has low RAM and small screen size that adds to some difficulties in terms of functioning. We give this phone  three star rating.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket

26 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Samsung’s Galaxy Pocket crams all the functionality budget- and first time smartphone users may want for less than R1000 (if you look in the right place). With its recommended retail price of just R999, it is significantly cheaper than LG’s Optimus L3 E400 as well as one of our favourite budget devices of last year, the Samsung Galaxy Gio (R2000).
  • Pros: Priced below R1000; really portable dimensions; 800+ MHz CPU on budget device; Android Gingerbread as mobile OS, and 3 GB worth of storage space.
  • Cons: Low-res touchscreen; other mobile phone users won’t turn green with smartphone design envy; camera is not the best and QVGA video recording ability.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket

12 September 2014
  • Summary: Das Samsung Galaxy Pocket punktet mit seiner Kompaktheit. Telefonieren, Mailen, Surfen oder gelegentliches Angry Birds Spielen ist auf dem Mini-Handy dennoch problemlos möglich. Allerdings ist die Hard- und Software selbst im Einsteiger-Segment nicht mehr aktuell - auch in der Preisklasse bis 150 Euro finden Nutzer mittlerweile besser ausgestattete Modelle, die nicht unbedingt sehr viel größer sind als das Galaxy Pocket.
  • Pros: kompakt, flotter Prozessor
  • Cons: Ausstattung nicht mehr zeitgemäß, rutschiges Gehäuse

Samsung S5300 Galaxy Pocket

1 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Smartphones er der nok af på markedet, faktisk efterhånden så mange at det kan være svært at finde rundt i de mange mærker, modeller og nye smarte styrefunktioner. Selvom de alle ligger under samme kategori, er de dog langt fra ens – hverken pris- eller funktionsmæssigt.
