Everything is good...but i want to know the screen resolution it is sporting.
All those good points will go down the drain if the resolution is below 800X640 or something like that.
My niece has a Galaxy Y, and boy, with that pixel density it's a pain.
But this should be a good phone...i mean not even some of the high end device comes with 4.1 out of the box.

320 x 480 pixels with a ppi of 165...even my old 5530XM has a better ppi.

I had a chance to play with a Galaxy Y (800mhz cpu, 200MB something ram) and it was very smooth. Save for the crappy screen, I'd say I'll recommend it to budget buyers. I'm pretty sure this Galaxy Fame will be an even better budget smartphone.

Only think missing in galaxy ace or y was a good UI.....with nature UX this device should be a good low end device...

.Samsung really sucks when it comes to updates!
I'm still using my very first Android mobile.
The Samsung Galaxy W i8150
the Galaxy W has a little better specs than this...
Samsung released this phone with Jelly Bean and yet SGW is still in Gingerbread.

I dislike the names that phone manufacturers are coming up with. They are really confusing and misleading. I think they are picking those names on purpose.
Why are all the phones Galaxies now? So they feel like they have a Galaxy with higher end specs at a lower price tag. A Galaxy will always be a Galaxy right?
Same with Sony Z / ZL. Etc....
