Budget Smartphone is the perfect device for small and mid-sized businesses that do not have the sufficient funds to avail of the more high-end handsets. This simultaneously represents an advantage and a disadvantage for your company.
It is advantageous because your business will be able to enjoy the benefits of having a Smartphone without unnecessarily breaking your bank. It is disadvantageous, on the other hand, because a slashed price often comes with a compromise, which almost always includes a downgrade in performance.
Samsung has already released a veritable array of budget Smartphones that you can choose from. By any means these handheld devices are not in any way at par with the flagship Smartphones of the Korea-based company such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 or even the Galaxy S3. But some of these devices are already great bargain, providing you with an affordable option without much compromise to the quality.
The latest offering from Samsung along the lines of budget Smartphones is the Samsung Galaxy Young, which boasts of an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Yet if you would be able to conduct a hands-on of this device, you will realize that the sufficiently low price tag that it comes with also comes with a number of trades-off.
What should you expect from the Samsung Galaxy Young?
In a nutshell, the following are the salient specifications that you must acquaint yourself with in order to come up with an informed decision whether to buy this handset or not.
When it comes to design and build, the Samsung Galaxy Young emerged from the same mold as any other Samsung Smartphone. It is also relatively small by today’s standards.
This Smartphone, by virtue of its size, can easily fit into your pockets. Its small screen is also easy to navigate with one hand, and it does not feel unnecessarily heavier than it should be according to its size. The Samsung Galaxy Young is also inordinately thin, measuring 12.9mm in thickness, so it is quite a chunky device.
In terms of design, this handset is similar to the HTC Desire C in that it has a pebble-like shape. It is made of plastic yet it feels solid. The performance of this device is bound to disappoint.
Sporting a 1GHz single-core processor with only 768MB of RAM, the Samsung Galaxy young is not a device that you would actually describe as fast. In fact, you will notice that it is perceptibly slow even in carrying on the basic tasks such as opening apps, playing games or watching videos.
The Samsung Galaxy Young is also a letdown in the screen department. It is fitted with a 3.27” panel that has a measly resolution of 480 x 320p.
Sporting only a 4GB on-board storage, of which only 1GB will be strictly usable, the Samsung Galaxy Young fortunately comes with a MicroSD card slot that can take up to 64GB of supplementary memory.
When it comes to camera performance, the Samsung Galaxy Young disappoints once again. It is equipped with a 3MP rear-facing snapper, which is very low-resolution by today’s standards. Unfortunately, this Smartphone lacks a front-facing camera for video calls.
As has already been stated, this Smartphone runs the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, which is almost identical to the 4.2 version. One of the saving grace of this device is that its battery—a 4.8Wh removable one—can last up to two days with regular usage.
Should you buy this Smartphone?
There are a lot of reasons that go against purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Young. If you will use your Smartphone for intensive use such as a mobile support service provider such as RingCentral, then the Galaxy Young is not the best choice.
