Samsung Galaxy Young S6310 review: Just for starters

 

With flagships coming in like clockwork, Samsung obviously thought it was time for their entry-level Android lineup to also get a fresh of coat of paint. And that goes all the way to the bottom, where the Galaxy Y prepares to make room for the new kid...

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 ;...

Mediocre screen quality ; Fixed-focus camera ; Subpar video recording ; No front-facing camera

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.

Samsung Galaxy Young is a cheap way to bag Jelly Bean (hands-on)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Young may be young at heart, but its specs aren't exactly bursting with youthful vigour.

Review Samsung Galaxy Young DUOS GT-S6312 Smartphone

 

For the young. The Samsung Galaxy Young is a handy smartphone for

dual SIM function...; ... works well; comfortable for small hands; cheap; high-end build quality; handy size; fast flash memory; big RAM

inefficient; occasional stuttering; modest battery life; camera produces muffled images; low resolution screen; viewing angles only ok in vertical direction

How bright the display of this cheap smartphone is.

Samsung Galaxy Young Duos Review

 

Affordable dual SIM phone, Comes with contemporary Jelly Bean

Low-quality screen, All plastic, Camera is basic

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...

The Samsung Galaxy Young Duos arrives at the bottom low of Samsung's 2013 Android lineup, bringing you a 3.3-inch display, a 1GHz processor and an (almost) up-to-date version of Android…

Samsung Galaxy Young

 

Can this 3.5-inch budget Android offering live up to its Galaxy brand billing?

Cheap, £90 price tag, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS with TouchWiz UI, Moderate camera quality for price

Slightly sluggish, Low quality 3.5-inch display, No LED flash

Samsung Galaxy Young review

 

A super-budget smartphone which gives you all the basics

Low price ; NFC enabled ; Bright screen

Questionable battery ; Really poor camera ; Small internal storage

The Galaxy Young delivers a worthy cut down smartphone experience that will appeal to young and old alike for a price tag that makes it ideal as a first smartphone, or as a backup for those riskier moments.

Samsung Galaxy Young review

 

Now under £50, is the Galaxy Young a crazy bargain?

When we first saw the Samsung Galaxy Young it was among the cheapest Android smartphones we'd seen at just £90. Now you can pick one up for as little as £50 from Tesco Mobile. That makes it very cheap, even by today's standards, but is it worth buying?

Samsung Galaxy Young review

 

The main draw of the Samsung Galaxy Young S6310 smartphone is the combination of its budget price tag – around £125 SIM-free – and the fact it runs on the (almost) latest Android operating system, version 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Galaxy Young's low price and the fact it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are really all it has going for it. Its low grade hardware and dire performance mean that we'd rather have an alternative budget smartphone running Ice Cream Sandwich, or even...

Set for launch in March 2103 the Samsung Galaxy Young is an attractive phone, with a respectable processor and screen size, although it’s probably not the best choice for photo fans. The price will be crucial - it needs to be around £150 to compete...
