Samsung Galaxy Fame Review
Now that's a nice surprise! Low-end phones usually come with cameras that are mediocre at best, but the 5-megapixel auto-focus snapper on the Samsung Galaxy Fame is actually quite usable. In fact, the images that it produces are very rich in detail, albeit somewhat noisy, and even the ones taken indoors look presentable. The only thing the camera really lacks is speed – it is slow to boot, lags prior to capturing a photo, and then needs some more time before it is ready to take the next shot. These, however, are all imperfections present on the majority of entry-level handsets.
Samsung Galaxy Fame Sample Images
Recording videos using the Galaxy Fame isn't recommended unless there's no other camera around. Simply put, they look pretty terrible when played on anything bigger than a smartphone display, partially because of the low resolution of only 640 by 480 pixels, but also due to the heavy presence of digital artifacts in the picture.

The camera interface is pretty straightforward to use. It offers handy features like panorama and various shooting modes, and can be launched right from the lock screen with the help of a shortcut.
The Samsung Galaxy Fame comes with the very same music player present on all of the company's recent Android smartphones. And that's not a bad thing since the app surely gets the job done. It can sort tracks by title, album, artist, or folder name, while playback controls appear in the notification bar for quick and easy access. A 7-band equalizer and additional sound enhancements, such as reverb and bass boost, are included as well. The built-in loudspeaker is of average loudness, but crackles when its volume is turned up all the way.
Most of the video samples we threw on the Samsung Galaxy Fame couldn't be played. We were only able to watch our MPEG4 videos in resolution no higher than 800 by 480 pixels. That shouldn't bother you much, however, as you'd probably not spend much time watching videos on the Fame's low-quality display, save for the occasional YouTube lolcat video.

If this is going to be available at the same price as xperia miro in my country (India), then it is going to be a tough sell with heavy competition from much better handsets like xperia sola, desire x, lumia 520, desire v and galaxy s duos.
