Samsung Galaxy Pocket Review
We were nicely surprised to find out that incoming call quality is actually pretty good with the Galaxy Pocket. Voices have some nice loudness and even depth to them. Unfortunately, the mic doesn't seem so good, because our callers didn't enjoy our voice as much as we enjoyed theirs.

The battery of the Galaxy Pocket is a 1200mAh unit, which should be able to provide enough juice for 6 hours of continuous 3G talk-time, or 19 days of 3G stand-by time.


Conclusion:

We like the concept behind the Samsung Galaxy Pocket. This is the handset that can bring much of the power of a smartphone to the hands of yesterday's feature phone users, without costing them more. It covers pretty much every basic Android functionality, and manages to build on top of that by being able to run most of the applications found in the Google Play store.

However, do not think that you'll be able to taste the sweetness of using a top-class smartphone with the Galaxy Pocket, because the experience here is totally different, mostly due to the low-resolution screen.

If you don't plan to use it very heavily for web browsing and media consumption, though, the Pocket will get the job done without too much hassle.

Software version of the reviewed unit: Android 2.3.6, Baseband: S5300XXLCB
