Samsung Galaxy Young Duos Review
Call quality is of paramount importance for any phone, but even more so for such a basic device like the Galaxy Young, and we were happy to have our callers say our voice sounded natural, clear and sufficiently. On our side of things voice was a tiny bit muffled, but overall we were quite satisfied with the loudness and clarity of this handset.


Battery life:

A 1300mAh battery for such a compact handset is enough of an asset to easily get it through a day, and we even got two days of use with some juice remaining.


Conclusion:

The Galaxy Young brings a gradual improvement in the Android low end with a 3.3-inch display that is slightly larger than on the preceding Galaxy Y, a bump up in the camera department and a slightly more capable battery, but what has changed even quicker is the face of competition.

At its affordable off contract price of around $150, the Galaxy Young meets the fierce rivalry of larger and more capable phones from Chinese vendors. You can even get a device with a quad-core MediaTek chip from China for almost the same price.

And if you are not particularly keen on the dual-SIM functionality and are willing to pay a bit more, Nokia’s Lumia 520 is one offer from a known manufacturer that is better in every single way - from screen size and quality, to processor and camera. It runs on Windows Phone, though.

The Galaxy Young would be a good choice for those who value compact devices from a well established brand like Samsung and the presence of dual-SIM functionality and the contemporary Jelly Bean with the TouchWiz skin are all a plus.

Software version of the reviewed unit:
Android 4.1.2; Build number: JZO54K.S63112XXAMBG

Many people are gonna bash this phone... But come on it costs about 120 dollars outright!!
For a bit more than 100 bucks, you get an okay performing phone with JB..
