Call quality and Battery

Callers didn’t have any major issues with the Galaxy Express, but did complain that we were hollow sound-sounding and that it picks up a lot of background noise. It didn’t hinder the conversation, however, and overall they rated it an 8/10. To us they sounded natural with plenty of volume.

The 2000mAh battery is rated for 14 hours of talk time and nearly two weeks of standby, and in our testing we had no problem getting through an average day of use with plenty juice left.


The Samsung Galaxy Express is a solid mid-range smartphone option for AT&T. Though cluttered, the OS is easy to learn thanks to the constant tips Samsung displays on-screen when accessing new areas of the device. The Snapdragon S4 Plus processor and 1GB of RAM make for a speedy experience, and the large Super AMOLED Plus display will satisfy most user’s needs. From design to performance most everything on the Galaxy Express is predictable and in a mid-range device that’s not exactly a bad thing, but with similar, cheaper and arguably better offerings from HTC, LG and Pantech in AT&T’s lineup the Galaxy Express offers nothing to stand out from the crowd.
