The Samsung Galaxy pocket is Samsung’s new entry level smartphone that targets the first time smartphone user and also the budget conscious would-be smartphone buyer.
I’ve got a few requests for my thoughts on the pocket, so here are 5 things you may want to know:
- It runs on Android: The Galaxy pocket comes loaded with Google’s Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread), the most popular version of android out there right now, complete with Google apps and services.
- Size: The pocket is compact, at just 97g and a height of 103.9mm it fits right into your palms…and pocket.
- Applications: The Pocket has access to Google Play and Samsung apps so that’s literally hundreds of thousands of apps to play with.
- It has a pre-installed FM radio: FM radio is fast becoming a standard feature for entry level phones, so no surprise, the pocket packs one too.
- Cost: This is probably the most interesting part of it all, it costs just around N18,000. (cheaper than some feature phones).
On paper, the Galaxy Pocket does seem like a great entry level smartphone, hard to say how all those specs perform in real-life seeing as we haven’t had time to “play” with it yet, if and when we do, we’ll post up a review and give you all the details.
