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.
Excerpt: Budget smartphones are those that hold consumers’ hands as they transit from feature phones to the smartphones. They offer a “smart OS” and features that give users a tip of the iceberg view of the potential of owning a smartphone.
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.
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.
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
Conclusion: Like any smartphone, it will open you to a world of entertainment and improve how you connect to friends and family. But because it’s a budget phone, it could help make things easier for you to decide.

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...
