Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos Review
The camera interface is basic, but functional, offering several preset scenes and effects, as well as Panorama and Smile modes.
The 3MP fixed-focus shooter here makes oversharpened and a bit oversaturated photos with normal for its resolution amount of detail. The phone sometimes fails to get the white balance correctly, resulting in warm yellowish overcast. Indoor photos have the white balance off as well, towards the cold end of the spectrum with greenish hue, and come out pretty noisy when the lighting goes down.
The maximum video capture resolution is the paltry 320x240, which basically renders the footage useless anywhere but on the phone’s display. We wanted to see at least 640x480, as this CPU should be able to support it, but alas.
There is a front-facing camera for video chat, too, unlike on the single-SIM Galaxy Y Pro brother.
The default TouchWiz music player is what takes care of your tune needs, and it sports a bunch of equalizer presets with enigmatic names like “music clarity” or “externalization”, as well as song categorization by artists, albums and playlists. The loudspeaker sounds clean, but is not loud enough.
The video player runs MPEG-4 files up to the screen’s resolution and even a tad above, but for other formats you’d have to hit Android Market.

My sister bought this a few weeks ago when she went to India. I facepalmed and shook my head when she bought it, thinking "Why was she so cheap? For a few bucks more she could have bought something decent." Thankfully this review alleviates many of my concerns. This phone definitely wouldn't fit my purposes, but for my tech ignorant sister, I think it will be a good phone!
