Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

Get ready young'uns - it's got NFC too

Small dimensions ; Cheaper price ; NFC support

Difficult texting ; Low-res screen ; Poor camera for 5MP

The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a phone that comes with a celebrity name, but certainly no celebrity price tag. Available SIM-free and unlocked from around £180/US$200 and free on UK contracts starting as low as £10 per month, the Samsung Galaxy Fame will...

Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

A budget phone with Samsung's excellent build quality, but there are much better options available for just £10 more

The Galaxy Fame has almost halved in price since we first reviewed it, as you can now pick one up for as little as £80 SIM-free from Carphone Warehouse. However, when the vastly superior Motorola Moto E costs just £10 more, the Galaxy Fame pales by...

Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

That's cheap, but is the Galaxy Fame good value in a world in which you can purchase the Moto E and Lumia 520 for less than £100? Let's find out. (See all Android phone reviews.) Our review sample was provided by GSM Nation.

There's nothing wrong with a cheap, functional smartphone, and the Galaxy Fame is exactly that. The trouble is that even at this price the Fame is being squeezed out by much better phones that cost roughly the same amount. Windows-toting Lumia 520 is a...

Samsung Galaxy Fame

 

Samsung's 3.5-inch budget smartphone is a serious disappointment

Pleasing 5-megapixel camera, Solid construction, Android 4.1 with Samsung TouchWiz UI

Dire 3.5-inch display, Expensive for specs on offer, Fails to match up with rival devices

Samsung Galaxy Fame Review: In Depth

 

Entry-level Android specs in a tidy little package, the Samsung Galaxy Fame is one of the company's newest low-end Jelly Bean devices, but how does it fare in real-world use?Samsung Galaxy Fame review:…

High quality design ; Impressive camera ; Premium features (TouchWiz Nature UX, NFC, front-facing camera etc)

Samsung Galaxy Fame Hands-On Review: Reasonable performance

 

Samsung obviously gets a lot of press regarding its flagship smartphones but the company has long provided consumers with cheaper alternatives that still have some nice features and reasonable specs. Today we are looking at the Samsung Galaxy Fame in a...

Samsung Galaxy Fame review

 

The more expensive of the two handsets at the bottom ofSamsung's Galaxy range comes with a mix of low and midrange Androidfeatures, but there isn't a clear differentiation between the Fameand its rival, the Galaxy Young.

Good range of Android features, good camera for the price

Performance not great

The Samsung Galaxy Fame comes out just ahead of its nearest rivalthe Galaxy Young because of its superior camera. But while itsprocessor appeared better on paper, in practise the lack of RAMheld it back and the larger screen actually has a slightly...

Samsung Galaxy Fame Review

 

Samsung's Galaxy Fame doesn't really offer enough for the price. The small display is low-res, and performance is disappointing. Battery life is mediocre – and there are better handsets out there for the money.

Decent outdoor shots from snapper; Compact design; support for NFC.

Laggy performance; Low-res small screen; Keyboard gripes.

The Samsung Galaxy Fame doesn’t offer enough for the price tag. Performance is rather slow, the small display is low-res and battery life is mediocre. However, you’ll get more for your money from the likes of the Huawei Ascend G510 and LG Optimus L5 II.

Samsung Galaxy Fame

 

It's ironic that the Samsung Galaxy Fame has been entirely overlooked because of its bigger brother, the Samsung Galaxy S4, but overlook it at your peril: it's one of the best small-screen Android phones out there right now. With a 3.5-inch display -...

If you’re fed up with the all the hype about super charged phones with even bigger screens, and you’re sure an iPhone isn’t for you, the Samsung Galaxy Fame might well be the best pick out there. Sure, it’s not as high spec as the Sony Xperia U, but...
