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

 

The world might stir itself into a hectic fervor over the release of flagship smart phones like the Galaxy S4 , but these devices come with elite features, monstrous engines and whopping price tags. If your phone needs are more modest, there's no need...

Attractive design; Decent camera; Affordable price.

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

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...

Review Samsung Galaxy Fame GT-S6810P Smartphone

 

Little star? Affordable, stylish and handy: Samsung's Galaxy Fame is aimed especially at young customers. But perhaps it can also attract other target groups with features like a 5 megapixel camera and NFC.

Handy design, Solid casing, Screen's high brightness, Cool even during load, The well-built and handy casing

Narrow viewing angles, Low contrast, Only middling performance, Preinstalled bloatware, Small screens could also do with a somewhat higher resolution

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

 

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

Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

Get ready young'uns - it's got NFC too

Small dimensions ; Cheaper price ; NFC support

Difficult texting ; Low-res screen ; Poor camera for 5MP

The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a small, cheap phone aimed at younger users who want to connect to Facebook, and for those users it's fine. It struggles with anything more substantial, though, and the screen and camera are both pretty poor.

Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

A budget phone with Samsung's excellent build quality, but there are much better options available for just £10 more

The Galaxy Fame has almost halved in price since we first reviewed it, as you can now pick one up for as little as £80 SIM-free from Carphone Warehouse. However, when the vastly superior Motorola Moto E costs just £10 more, the Galaxy Fame pales by...

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...
