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.


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).


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.

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