Samsung Galaxy Stellar Review
The overall call quality is a bit lacking, as we noticed that voices were choppy and digital sounding at times, and there was a continual “high-pitch” background sound that we couldn’t get rid of. People that we called also said we sounded “choppy” on their end as well, and could easily tell we were using a cell phone, though we did not drop any calls.


Battery:

The included 2100 mAh battery is rated to provide up to 17 hours of talk time or 9 days of standby time. In our testing, we were able to get about 9 hours of continuous talk time, or about 2 days of mixed usage (which includes some talk, email, internet, app usage and standby).


Conclusion:

The old saying “you can’t get something for nothing” still applies today, as you have to sign a 2-year contract in order to get the Samsung Galaxy Stellar for free, as the full retail price is $330. The Galaxy Stellar doesn’t have any stellar features or specs, but does provide the basics, such as a usable 4” screen, nice 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and is running Android ICS. But the poor camera quality is a disappointment, as is the lackluster call quality.

Software on tested device:
Android 4.0.4
Baseband version: I200VRLG4
Kernel version: 3.0.8-84291-user
Build number: IMM76D.I200VRALG4
