Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo is as low as you can go with brand name Android smartphones…

Most affordable Android smartphone from a brand you know ; Mostly smooth performance

3” display is extremely tiny, cripples the experience ; Screen is also dim

The Galaxy Pocket Neo is as low as Android goes right now for big brands you have actually heard of as Samsung. The off contract price of the Galaxy Pocket Neo varies between $90 - $120 in different markets, but even at such a price - lower than some...

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket represents the true meaning of low-end. It's hard to imagine that you can go any lower than that in terms of specs, yet it's much better to have a smart OS like Android powering this device, rather than a feature phone...

Good performance ; 3GB internal memory

Low-resolution screen

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. It covers pretty much every basic Android...

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket Mobile Handset is a sleek, stylish and lightweight mobile handset targeted towards the young generation and executives. The phone has a large 2.8 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display with 240 x 320 pixels display...

Samsung Galaxy Pocket

 

Awww, isn't it just adorable? The Galaxy Pocket is Samsung's smallest Android offering, with a 2.8" touchscreen and standing (or lying) at just 103.7mm. But the general trend for weeny 'pocket' things has waned in recent years, mainly due to the large...

The Galaxy Pocket is tiny and, as expected, most of its ups and downs are related to its size. While some are drawn to the idea of a matchbox-sized phone (almost), it does suffer when it comes to screen quality, picture-taking and navigation for those...

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a decent phone considering the price point and the features on offer. The device has a good build, and the features and specifications will provide you with an entry-level Android experience. The screen size may be too...

Good, compact build ; Good keyboard ; 3GB internal memory ; Hot swappable microSD card slot

No front facing camera ; Screen size may be too small for some ; No flash ; Average camera

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review,Price in India,Tech Specification

 

Samsung Galaxy Pocket review suggests that it is probably one of the most basic Android phones in the market. It also includes all the standard connectivity options.

• Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread) ; • 832 Mhz processor ; • 2.8- inches, TFT capacitive touch screen ; • 2 Megapixels camera, No Flash ; • 3GB internal memory ; • MicroSD card slot, expandable up to 32GB ; • Standard Li-Ion, 1200 mAh battery ; • 3.5 mm...

• It has a small display, topped up with a poor resolution, making the display crude and harsh on your eyes. ; • The device has only 2 mp camera, that too with no flash or auto focus.

This latest Samsung production is being placed even under the Samsung mini 2 family. Though it covers almost all basic Android features and supports most of the apps on Google Play Store, it just fails to impress majorly because of its poor resolution...

Not expensive and small phone

 

It works fine. The touchscreen is not as sensitive as an Iphone touchscreen but who cares, we are not paying the same price, right. Careful if you have big fingers though! I have very small fingers and sometimes i cannot text efficiently because of the...

Great little GSM phone for the price

 

After using an old Samsung Blackjack for years I decided to trade up and I'm glad I did. The Galaxy Pocket is a great little smart phone. Connect to Google Play for lots of great free apps. Works with ATT and TMobile and any GSM based system.

Works great as an entry-level Android phone

 

Bought 2 of these for my daughters. Runs only 2.3 Android, display resolution is not the best but it has GPS, Bluetooth, HSPA and other features that better models have. It has a slower processor but has 3GB internal memory and is unlocked (so you can...
