Review Samsung Galaxy Fame GT-S6810P Smartphone

 

Little star? Affordable, stylish and handy: Samsung's Galaxy Fame

Handy design; Solid casing; Screen's high brightness; Cool even during load

Narrow viewing angles; Low contrast; Only middling performance; Preinstalled bloatware

That bloatware is now also installed on smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy Fame review: In the spotlight

 

Samsung has always been keen on providing smartphones for the budget-conscious crowd and ever since Gingerbread came around we've been seeing a major push by its entry-level squad. Even though it runs on Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Fame is a bit of a blast...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.5" 256K-color capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480 pixel) resolution ; Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX ; 1 GHz Broadcom BCM21654G CPU, 512MB of RAM...

Mediocre display ; Feeble chipset ; No dedicated camera key ; Poor video codec support ; VGA video recording

It's been quite a while since Samsung has released a truly budget smartphone. The days of affordable Gingerbread devices running on single-core processors seemed like a distant memory until picking up the Galaxy Fame made us feel as though we're back...

Samsung Galaxy Fame Review

 

What happens if you shrink a Samsung Galaxy S III? You end up with a Galaxy S III mini. What happens if you shrink the mini then? Well, the Samsung Galaxy Fame would be the end result – a low-end Android smartphone that is about to be thoroughly...

Nice camera for a low-end smartphone ; Well designed ; Free 50GB Dropbox storage (for 2 years)

Low resolution display ; Occasional performance issues

Low-end Android smartphones are never perfect, but they aren't really meant to be. Rather, these handsets need to be just good enough to suit the needs of budget-conscious consumers. Does the Samsung Galaxy Fame fit the bill? Well, based on our...

Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

That's cheap, but is the Galaxy Fame good value in a world in which you can purchase the Moto E and Lumia 520 for less than £100? Let's find out. (See all Android phone reviews.) Our review sample was provided by GSM Nation.

There's nothing wrong with a cheap, functional smartphone, and the Galaxy Fame is exactly that. The trouble is that even at this price the Fame is being squeezed out by much better phones that cost roughly the same amount. Windows-toting Lumia 520 is a...

A budget phone with Samsung's excellent build quality, but there are far better options for only a little more cash

Expert review by:

Samsung Galaxy Fame

 

Samsung's 3.5-inch budget smartphone is a serious disappointment

Pleasing 5-megapixel camera ; Solid construction ; Android 4.1 with Samsung TouchWiz UI

Dire 3.5-inch display ; Expensive for specs on offer ; Fails to match up with rival devices

The Fame’s virtual keyboard is cramped and squashed together. Somehow, however, it’s just about satisfying to use. Although confined, the small keys are well placed, helping ensure mistakes and accidental key strokes are kept to a minimum. It’s a small...

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...

Attractive design ; Decent camera ; Affordable price

Poor performance ; Unimpressive screen ; Meagre 2GB of usable storage

With its familiar Galaxy S3-style looks, decent camera and affordable price tag, the Fame is a pretty good budget Samsung. It's let down by its poor performance and unimpressive screen, though -- two things that will have a big impact on your time with...

Samsung Galaxy Fame Review: In Depth

 

"great just great overall fun small snappy quick great for videos and pictures"

High quality design ; Impressive camera ; Premium features (TouchWiz Nature UX, NFC, front-facing camera etc)

Terrible screen ; Disappointing battery life ; Expensive ; TouchWiz too heavy

For a little more cash, we’d be willing to make the jump to Nokia’s Lumia 620, which boasts dual-core functionality and a larger, higher resolution screen or for a different take on Android, Sony’s Xperia Miro smartphone is a cheaper alternative.

Samsung Galaxy Fame Hands-On Review: Reasonable performance

 

Samsung obviously gets a lot of press regarding its flagship smartphones but the company has long provided consumers with cheaper alternatives that still have some nice features and reasonable specs. Today we are looking at the Samsung Galaxy Fame in a...
