Samsung Galaxy Young 2 review

 

Small, slow and frustrating to use, the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 should be avoided at all costs

The saddest thing about the Young 2, though, is that it's one of the most recognisable £50 phones available on most UK networks, particularly if you're after something on Pay As You Go. You'll have to pay around £70 to buy it SIM-free, but when the 2nd...

Samsung Galaxy Young 2

 

This young one has much to learn

Small enough for kids ; Shares design DNA with more expensive Samsungs

Laggy performance, low-power CPU ; Low-res camera ; Low storage ; Small, poor-quality screen

The Samsung Galaxy Young 2 doesn’t fare too well outside, either. The highly reflective screen and so-so maximum brightness are bad enough, but not having an Auto brightness setting means you manually need to bump up the brightness to compensate when...

Samsung Galaxy Young 2 review

 

As its name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 is intended as a first phone for young teens. It's very cheap, very small, and very basic. But there are better budget smartphones available, and we can't recommend the Young 2.

The Samsung Galaxy Young 2 is a very cheap smartphone, but perhaps too cheap. As a first phone for a young teen, it might be OK, but it may create more problems than it solves. Asked by penny from Namibia on 13th May 2016 Reply

Not recommended

Yes it's cheap, but it's also poorly designed and constructed. Beef number one, design. The volume control toggle is located opposite to the screen activate switch. Every time you activate the screen you change the volume setting. Beef number two. The...

This phone is Ok for text and quick look up of internet but to make/receive calls a padlock constantly comes up which you have to double tap to remove - so by the time you have double tapped the caller has gone.Absolutely no information on how to...

Perfect for the young or older generation

 

Bought this as my first smart phone, did find the keyboard a little small to start with but changed it to the predictive text keyboard which was much easier.My only negative comment is that the camera doesn't have a flash, which makes taking pictures...
