Samsung Galaxy Pocket

 

Priced below R1000; really portable dimensions; 800+ MHz CPU on budget device; Android Gingerbread as mobile OS, and 3 GB worth of storage space

Low-res touchscreen; other mobile phone users won’t turn green with smartphone design envy; camera is not the best and QVGA video recording ability

Samsung’s Galaxy Pocket crams all the functionality budget- and first time smartphone users may want for less than R1000 (if you look in the right place). With its recommended retail price of just R999, it is significantly cheaper than LG’s Optimus L3...

Samsung S5300 Galaxy Pocket Review

 

In the realm of aptly named products, Samsung's Galaxy Pocket fits right in. With its tiny form and sporting Google's smartphone OS, the Pocket is aiming at capturing the throne in the lower budget smartphone segment. Of course in doing so, it will...

The Galaxy Pocket comes with a price tag of 6,990 (Best Price - will vary depending on location and stores). Spice’s Mi-280 is the Pocket’s closest competitor and while priced a little lower, does not come with 3GB of onboard storage, plus MicroSD...

Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 review: Happy meal

 

Samsung are back to basics and they say there's always room for one more in the low end. Especially one that doesn't take too much space. The Galaxy Pocket makes the Galaxy Mini look like it's on steroids and the Y series like a bunch of semi pros...

Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 2.8" 256K-color QVGA TFT touchscreen ; 832MHz ARMv6 processor, 289MB of RAM ; Android OS v2.3.6 (Gingerbread) with TouchWiz UI ; 3 GB of internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot (up to 32 GB) ; 2 MP...

Low screen resolution limits choice of apps ; Fixed focus camera ; No secondary camera ; No camera flash, no dedicated camera key ; QVGA video recording @15fps ; No Adobe Flash support

No smartphones beyond this point. Lost so far in no-man's land between Symbian and Android, the point in question has been flagged on the map. Welcome to checkpoint Pocket.
