Samsung Galaxy Light review

 

If you're seeking an affordable Android phone on T-Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Light is a serious choice. There's nothing flashy or even particularly interesting about a this 4-inch, entry-level smartphone that just looks like a slightly mutated Samsung...

The Samsung Galaxy Light gives you 4G LTE, a decent processor, and a pocket-friendly form for under $250. Call quality is strong, too.

Camera images seemed dull and soft on the Light's 5-megapixel shooter, and the 4-inch screen makes the virtual keyboard feel cramped.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy Light if you're looking for Android on a budget -- just be aware that you're trading price for performance.

Samsung Galaxy Mega (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is both absurd and awesome. It has the largest screen of any smartphone in the U.S., and is a top Android-based pick on AT&T if you don't need the absolute latest cutting-edge components.

Mega-size screen. Not-so-mega-size price. Slim design. Tons of software features. Stellar battery life.

Display isn't full HD. Not the fastest gaming performance. Stereo speakers would have been better, given its size.

Hardware, OS, and Apps The Galaxy Mega runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, and packs a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1.5GB RAM. That's down a bit from the Galaxy Note II's quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and 2GB...

Upgrade quickly or you will regret it

 

This was my first smartphone so I loved it at first. The ability to use apps, take pictures, use emojis etc. was great...for about 4 months.

This is my first smartphone, and I have had it for 2 weeks. It is great! It has all the features that I want in a phone: phone, text, email, GPS, internet.I haven't used the GPS because there are so many other features that I am still learning about....
