Samsung has a very varied range of mid-range devices that is also constantly being renewed, the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus is a good example of this. It is a smartphone with a balanced technical profile that comes standard with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. This proposal is focused on users looking for a competent device, with everything they need to perform the usual tasks in a compact and manageable chassis. We see all the details of the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus.
Display and layout
As we said, the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus is a compact device, whose screen has a diagonal of four inches , the perfect size to be able to handle the device with ease with one hand and also to be able to transport it without being a hindrance. The panel develops 480 x 800 pixels of resolution , a good figure for its surface that offers a density of 233 dpi . It also has a proximity sensor that turns off the screen when we are on a call and also an ambient light detector responsible for adjusting the brightness automatically.
There is not much to say about the design since Samsung continues to maintain the same rectangular shape with rounded corners that they use throughout their Galaxy range. The use of organic shapes makes the grip more comfortable by adapting to our hand. The Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus is available in white or dark gray with a glossy finish.
Camera and multimedia
The Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus lives up to its mid-range status by equipping a five-megapixel resolution camera , the usual for this type of device. Thanks to this piece we will be able to get images of 2,592 x 1,944 pixels as long as we use the maximum resolution. This size is suitable for viewing on a large monitor or television, but will also allow printing in an intermediate format while preserving all quality. How could it be otherwise, it also has LED flash, automatic focus, geo-tagging and face detector . The video recording in this case will be held as HD720p at 30 frames per secondand it also has a 0.3 megapixel (VGA) front camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus is prepared to play all types of files in various formats, whether it is music, video, images or documents. Among the supported file types we find some advanced ones like MKV for high resolution videos, other classics like MP3, MIDI, WAV, WMV and H.263 and H.264 video codecs .
Power and memory
Fluency is an essential aspect to speak of a good user experience and devices with very basic processors tend to slow down or even crash. The Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus has a unit suitable for your needs so that this does not happen. It is a dual core that runs at 1.2 gigahertz frequency and is supported by 768 Mb of RAM.
Internal memory is the weak point of many mid-range terminals such as the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus. In this case we are talking about a 4 Gb of storage pool, of which 1.97 Gb will be available if we discount what the operating system and serial applications occupy. The user will have to be careful not to completely fill the internal memory and transfer all possible data to the MicroSD card , which by the way in this model can reach 64 Gb of capacity.
Operating system and applications
As we said at the beginning, the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus comes standard with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean , which is not the most current version of the Google platform, but at least it does have some improvements such as the Google Now assistant , the new widgets and the Project Butter performance improvement system . There is no confirmation that it will be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat , but considering that this installment has been optimized for devices with little RAM (512 Mb minimum), you could end up receiving the latest installment. In any case, this model comes standard with a package of pre-installed applicationsso that from the first minute you can perform different tasks. For example, the user can add their Google account (or create a new one if that is the case) to check their email in Gmail , chat with Google Talk , store documents in the cloud with Google Drive , watch YouTube videos or use the service of GPS navigation with Google Maps.
As we have seen in the previous sections, the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus continues to maintain a balanced configuration in the case of connections, a point where it lacks nothing. We start with Internet access, which can be carried out through WiFi networks (2.4 Ghz) or also through 3G mobile networks , which can reach 21 Mbps of maximum download speed and 5.76 Mbps of upload. The terminal also allows you to share the connection and become a kind of portable modem with the WiFi Hotspot standard , or transfer files at high speed with WiFi Direct. In the multimedia field, the DLNA system will be very practical, which allows the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus to communicate with other devices such as televisions so that we can see the photos on a large screen. Finally , the Bluetooth wireless port , the GPS antenna , the headphone jack and the MicroUSB connection could not be missing .
Samsung has equipped the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus with a 1,500 milliamp battery, which according to official information can be on for 310 hours when the device is idle and eight hours when in use . On the other hand, it can also be on a single charge for seven hours when we surf the Internet with a 3G connection and nine hours if we use the WiFi network . The autonomy in audio and video playback has also been specified , which will be 36 hours and six hours respectively.
Samsung continues to enlarge its catalog of mid-range smartphones by once again renewing one of its existing devices. The Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus is presented as an option for users who want a handy mobile and with the necessary features to perform the usual tasks that we talked about at the beginning, such as downloading applications, browsing the Internet, chatting with friends or watching videos from YouTube. We highlight its four-inch panel with WVGA resolution, its varied connection profile and its simple but complete camera . However, it fails in the internal memory, which remains at a scarce 1.97 Gb available for the user.
