Samsung Galaxy Fame Review
Calls made using the Samsung Galaxy Fame are of above average quality. Voice tones emitted by the earpiece are easy to distinguish without even having to turn its volume up all the way. On the other side of the line, our voice is clear as well, although accompanied by a certain amount of background noise.


Battery life:

The 1300mAh battery tucked inside the Samsung Galaxy Fame is removable and can be replaced if needed. We aren't sure how much it is supposed to last on a single charge since its maker hasn't yet posted any official figures, but given our experience with the device, we'd say you'll surely have to refill on a daily basis.


Conclusion:

Low-end Android smartphones are never perfect, but they aren't really meant to be. Rather, these handsets need to be just good enough to suit the needs of budget-conscious consumers. Does the Samsung Galaxy Fame fit the bill? Well, based on our experience with it we'd say that it's a nice entry-level device that will probably get the attention of the younger crowd and the ladies, in particular. We are genuinely pleased with its design and the good quality of its photos is a nice addition to its feature set. Just make sure your eyes can handle its low-quality display before reaching for your wallet.

Checking out some alternatives to the Samsung Galaxy Fame would also be a good idea before getting one. For example, we'd recommend taking a look at the Sony Xperia miro, which is very similar in terms of specs and costs about the same, if not less than the Fame. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 might be over a year old now, but it has better specs and also carries a similar price tag. In case your budget can handle it, then you might want to check out the HTC Desire X as it shouldn't cost considerably more despite being superior to the Galaxy Fame in a number of ways.

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.
