A super-budget smartphone which gives you all the basics

Low price ; NFC enabled ; Bright screen

Questionable battery ; Really poor camera ; Small internal storage

Ratings in depth When it comes to the modern smartphone, there are two manufacturers that manage to stand head and shoulders above the rest. Both Apple and Samsung have managed to take the mobile market by storm with their own takes on what should be...

Samsung Galaxy Young review

 

Now under £50, is the Galaxy Young a crazy bargain?

When we first saw the Samsung Galaxy Young it was among the cheapest Android smartphones we'd seen at just £90. Now you can pick one up for as little as £50 from Tesco Mobile. That makes it very cheap, even by today's standards, but is it worth buying?

Samsung Galaxy Young

 

Can this 3.5-inch budget Android offering live up to its Galaxy brand billing?

Cheap, £90 price tag, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS with TouchWiz UI, Moderate camera quality for price

Slightly sluggish, Low quality 3.5-inch display, No LED flash

Samsung Galaxy Young review

 

The main draw of the Samsung Galaxy Young S6310 smartphone is the combination of its budget price tag – around £125 SIM-free – and the fact it runs on the (almost) latest Android operating system, version 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Galaxy Young's low price and the fact it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are really all it has going for it. Its low grade hardware and dire performance mean that we'd rather have an alternative budget smartphone running Ice Cream Sandwich, or even...

Set for launch in March 2103 the Samsung Galaxy Young is an attractive phone, with a respectable processor and screen size, although it’s probably not the best choice for photo fans. The price will be crucial - it needs to be around £150 to compete...

Good range of Android features for the price

Camera's very basic

Samsung Galaxy Young Review

 

At first glance, the Galaxy Young looks just like the Galaxy Fame –

With that sort of pricetag we'd have happily recommended it as a cheap starter phone for kids and smartphone newbies. However, as it comes in at more than £120 we suggest you look at the likes of the LG Optimus L5 or Huawei Ascend G510 instead
