Samsung Galaxy Young
16 June 2013
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Young is a very compact entry-level Android phone positioned below the more powerful Galaxy Fame in terms of features. It costs less than £100, but somehow it still manages to feel over-priced. It's not that it's a bad phone. It just needs to be priced closer to £50 than £100 if it's going to get more than a 3 star rating from us. Consider also the Vodafone Smart III and Sony Xperia Tipo .
Samsung Galaxy Young S6310 review: Just for starters
22 May 2013
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Young doesn't do anything profoundly different compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Y. An HVGA screen and a 1GHz processor are actually the least you would expect, considering the two models are almost two years apart. The Galaxy Young has a dual-SIM version too, which seems to be the trend these days in the Android low-end. At €20 more than the standard package, the Galaxy Young Duos is a tempting offer.
Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.27" capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480), Android OS v4.1.2 Jelly Bean, 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A chipset, 768 MB of RAM, 2GB of user-accessible built-in storage (4GB total), microSD slot (64GB supported), 3.15 MP fixed-focus camera, geotagging, VGA video recording @ 24fps, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS with...
Cons: Mediocre screen quality, Fixed-focus camera, Subpar video recording, No front-facing camera
Review Samsung Galaxy Young DUOS GT-S6312 Smartphone
2 May 2013
Summary: For the young. The Samsung Galaxy Young is a handy smartphone for novices and the young. As its street price of 125 Euros (~$164) is rather low, you will have to live with several limitations, won't you? We will discover them in our review.
Pros: dual SIM function..., ... works well, comfortable for small hands, cheap, high-end build quality, handy size, fast flash memory, big RAM, The handy design and the neat build quality.
Cons: inefficient, occasional stuttering, modest battery life, camera produces muffled images, low resolution screen, viewing angles only ok in vertical direction, A special highlight, which makes the Samsung Galaxy Young distinctive.
Conclusion: The Galaxy Young brings a gradual improvement in the Android low end with a 3.3-inch display that is slightly larger than on the preceding Galaxy Y, a bump up in the camera department and a slightly more capable battery, but what has changed even quicker is the face of competition. At its affordable off contract price of around $150, the Galaxy Young meets the fierce rivalry of larger and more capable phones from Chinese vendors.
Pros: Affordable dual SIM phone, Comes with contemporary Jelly Bean
Cons: Low-quality screen, All plastic, Camera is basic
Conclusion: The Galaxy Young is a decent little smartphone but Samsung hasn't made it easy to choose between it and it's slightly more expensive cousin, the Galaxy Fame . The Fame has a better camera and a bigger screen, but the Young's screen is a little sharper, it performs better in some instances and it can hold more memory.
Pros: Good range of Android features for the price
Excerpt: The Galaxy Young is one of the cheapest Android phones we've seen. At £90 on O2 prepay, it's not quite as much of a bargain as the ZTE Kis , which is currently £45 on Virgin prepay from Argos, but it's certainly the cheapest phone we've seen SIM-free. You get a good-looking phone for your money, which feels well made.
