Description

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos is a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Pocket, a 2.8-inch Android device announced nearly half a year ago that immediately became the cheapest smartphone available from such a recognized name like Samsung. The Pocket Duos strays little from the original. It sports the same 2.8-inch QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a 832MHz single-core processor. The internal storage is 3GB and it is expandable via microSD cards of up to 32GB. Finally, Android is at version 2.3 Gingerbread on the device.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 143 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
