Samsung Galaxy Express Review

Samsung Galaxy Express I8730 is the latest member of the Samsung Galaxy family with the lightening speed of 4G LTE network. As the trend of Galaxy series is, it is also an Android OS supported smart phone.

The Galaxy Express looks like the Samsung Galaxy S3 smart phone to a great extent. This is a slim cell phone with curved edges. These features of the phone’s design make it easy to fit it into any pocket or small clutch. Moreover, the curved edges also make it easy to hold the Galaxy express cell phone comfortably in the hands whether you are texting, playing games or holding it against your ears during a call. However, the Samsung Galaxy S3 seems to be of a more superior quality with regard to its body than Galaxy Express I8730.

There is a 5 MP primary camera in this smart phone with autofocus and LED flash. Although this camera might be good enough for some, it is not the best camera coming in the Samsung Galaxy family. The predecessors of the Samsung Galaxy Express I8730 as well as some of its rivals offer cameras with a greater resolution within the same price range.

A 1.3 MP secondary front camera is also available in the cell phone. It is useful for making video calls or for taking your own shots. However, the pictures taken by this front camera are of an inferior quality with grains and low clarity.

It is an impressively large cell phone with a touch screen of 4.5 inches. The touch screen is Super AMOLED capacitive with 16 million colors. With a pixel density of approximately 207 ppi, the resolution of the screen is quite amazing. Though one shortcoming of the phone’s screen is that when it is held at certain angles, a bluish tinge is seen. This blue tinge does not only interfere with the clarity, but also tarnishes the overall user experience. However, the Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen of the Galaxy Express smart phone does not fail to provide a sharp visibility out in the sunlight.

There are countless applications available in the Samsung Galaxy Express I8730 smart phone. However, only a few of these numerous applications are actually useful for the average users. Most of the programs installed in the cell phone are bloatware which do not offer much use, except for occupying a large space on the cell phone’s memory. This bloatware is much like the Samsung Galaxy S2, looking impressive at first due to the long list of software programs but providing no real use.

Overall, it is a satisfying smart phone with respect to performance. Users can also enjoy a good quality of calls. Moreover, with its slim and elegant design, it is sure to catch the eye of many.
