Description

Galaxy Express 4G LTE is an affordable 4.5-inch smartphone that looks almost exactly like the Samsung Galaxy S III. Again. After the Galaxy S III mini, Galaxy Grand and even the Galaxy Note II. The idea behind the Express 4G LTE is delivering high-speed 4G cellular connectivity at an affordable price. Otherwise, it is a fairly mediocre device with a dual-core processor and a WVGA display, but that’s what you get for the lower price.
