Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review

Camera:

There's an unambitious 2MP camera in the Galaxy Pocket, which is equipped with a basic set of settings. The images could be worse. They are actually fine for a 2MP shooter, but don't expect too much, as colors are a bit dull, and brightly-lit things tend to come out overexposed.




Unfortunately, video is captured at a maximum resolution of 320x240, and this should be enough to keep you away from using the option. Still, if this will do the job for you, keep in mind it's recorded at about 14 frames per second.

Multimedia:


The Galaxy Pocket is a decent music player, although the loudspeakers starts to crackle if you put it to the highest setting. You can also apply different EQ presets if you feel like tweaking the sounding to your liking.

If 2.8 inches aren't too small for you, it's also possible to watch movies with this handset. Just make sure they are converted to a phone-friendly format like MPEG-4. The Pocket can run videos in various resolutions, so you won't be limited to the display's native res.
