Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos Review

It has become sort of a trend for Samsung to make “Duos” models of the phones having slightest tendency to sell. Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos price in Pakistan is average and so are the specs of this phone. Even though the price of the phone is quite affordable, this phone does not impress much. This is because it comes in a time when there are several other smartphones with better specs, even supporting dual-sim but have much better figures on the specs sheet. The display in Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos is fine, no complains about it, the dimensions are petite making it easily fit any pocket, and price has also been intelligently tagged. Still, there are many apprehensions about this phone.The looks and the design of this phone is almost the same as Samsung Galaxy Pocket except a few changes here and there on the phone. The first noticeable thing about this phone is its vivid DUOS logo imprinted right above the optical trackpad clearly showing the class this phone belongs to. Flipping it reveals the 2MP lens on the phone. The camera of this phone is simple 2MP supporting up to 1600×1200 pixel photographs. Like its predecessor, the camera in Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos has a fixed focus and with no flash.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos goes modest on its hardware and software as well. The gadget has Android Gingerbread operating system accompanied with 832MHz processor with Accelerometer and compass sensors along with TouchWiz UX user interface. Internal storage is limited to 3GB and can be extended up to 32GB through microSD memory chip. Despite the processor and operating system, the phone is not that snappy performing on finger swipes. Samsung could have given a somewhat better user interface in the gadget which would have better look and sale in Samsung mobiles. Other features, including the standard apps, radio, GPS, Java and multimedia players are all standard and nothing exceptional. However, compared to the price, every inch worth the money paid.

Communication is fine, signal reception and data transfers are also quite reliable and so it everything else. Though this phone is worth the price tag, but there are some better options in the market as well in the same price tag.
