Samsung Champ Deluxe Duos Review
Sadly, the microphone Samsung has used here is somewhat abysmal - our callers could understand what we are saying, but reported voices being extremely distorted, as if coming from a tin can. The phone also easily picks up annoying side noises.

The earpiece though sounded fine and fairly clear.

Being a feature phone, and with a fairly large for its size 1,000mAh battery the Champ Deluxe Duos easily lasts a couple of days without going to the charger. Talk time is quoted at the whopping nearly 16 hours, while on standby the device lasts around 21 days.


Conclusion:

The Samsung Champ Deluxe Duos is priced very affordably and in many markets it would be the cheapest touchscreen phone. However it comes with its trade-offs, and they are too big to ignore. The resistive touchscreen makes even mundane tasks like texting slow, and being a feature phone, you are limited to virtually no apps with this device.

If you pick this phone to start your touchscreen phone journey, we would not be surprised if you end up disappointed. The Samsung Star III Duos is a device that would cost a few bucks more, but will bring a much, much better feature phone experience. And if you can spend some more, the cheapest Androids like the Galaxy Pocket and Y would be an even better introduction to the touchscreen phone world.

If money is of absolute priority, though, and/or if you are planning to give this to a kid just for the bare basics, only then we could see a reason for getting this device now.
