The Galaxy Young Duos has a 3-megapixel rear camera capable of recording 480p video at 24 frames per second.

The camera has no flash, and with our non-final united we captured passable images on a sunny day. In all other conditions where light is not so ample, noise starts getting in the way too much. Images we captured are on the soft side, lacking in fine details, and with somewhat muted colors that lacked a punch.

The camera is also of the fixed focus kind which means that everything a foot away or closer will be out of the focus, so macro shot attempts are definitely not an option.

480p video at 24fps sounds like something that you could possibly use not just in an MMS message, but in reality footage turned out very fuzzy and skipping frames. Again, we wouldn’t want to give our final judgment now as this is not the final unit, but there’s definitely room for improvement.

The music player is the usual Samsung affair, rich in options with an equalizer and gimmicks like the possibility to build playlists based on your mood via the Music Square feature that scans your music. For music, the loudspeaker was of excellent quality with loud and clear sounds at even the maximum volume.

The default video player on the device easily plays back 480p videos in common formats like MPEG-4, but if you want to watch DivX/Xvid-encoded files you’d need a third-party app like MX Player.

The Samsung Galaxy Young Duos is a typical Samsung device starting from the design and plastic build, and ending with TouchWiz Nature skin. We expect it to take the place of last year’s Galaxy Y in the bottom low of the Android market, and as such it offers some valuable assets like a slightly larger and better display, a modern version of Android and a good enough hardware backbone for fluid performance. The existing dual-SIM version from the start is also good news to those in developing markets.

Its success largely depends on the final price, but judging from Samsung’s aggressive pricing strategy we have no reason to doubt it will be a good compromise for the money. If you want the most affordable smartphone, this would be one of your good options this year.
