With the aim of leading all existing markets, Samsung has launched a series of smartphones among which is the Galaxy Young 2 , an evolution of its previous version. This terminal is perfect for people looking for a basic smartphone for an affordable price .
The Galaxy Young 2 has a 3.5-inch screen , quite small for the trend that phablets are now setting, which are devices with a panel around five inches . It also has a gigahertz single-core processor , which while not one of its strengths, will make up for it with its incredible price. In addition, it has 512 of RAM and has an internal memory of four gigabytes expandable to 32 gigabytes through a microSD .
It is a small and light mobile that bases its operating system on Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat . In addition, the rear camera is three megapixels but no account with LED flash , something we miss. At the moment, the exact date of departure is unknown, as well as its price, although we assume that it will be quite affordable due to the benefits it offers.
Design and display
The Galaxy Young 2 has an elegant, compact and robust design with rounded corners. This terminal is available in white or black , to suit the consumer, and its material is plastic , something that was to be expected for being a basic mobile. Its screen is 3.5 inches with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels .
The smartphone has measures of 109.8 x 59.9 x 11.8 mm and weighing 108 grams. In addition, it has a physical button on its front, with which we can move forward or backward between the different applications. With this, we can see that Samsung has wanted to launch a phone that performs basic functions such as calling or sending messages. On the other hand, if what the user is looking for is a mobile with which he can view videos fluidly on a large screen, this is not his terminal.
Power and memory
The smartphone features a gigahertz single-core processor with 512-gigabyte RAM . Although it is not one of the best on the market, we can make basic use of the terminal without problems. For example, the user will be able to make calls, send messages or surf the Internet without fear that the phone will crash. It must be said that the phone, although it has increased its screen compared to its previous version , has decreased its RAM, which previously stood at 768 gigabytes .
In addition, it has a four gigabyte internal memory expandable up to 32 gigabytes via a microSD card . This will be very useful when saving files, since it must be said that the storage capacity of the terminal is limited. For example, if you are one of those who take a lot of photos with your phone, you should use a card because the memory of the smartphone will not be enough.
Camera and multimedia
The Galaxy Young 2 has a three megapixel main camera without an LED flash that, although it will not be preferred by photographers, it will be enough to take photos with friends or family celebrations. Also, the maximum resolution that can be in the pictures is of 2048 x 1536 pixels . In addition, you can record videos at a resolution of 30 frames per second with VGA quality . It has the geotagging function , which is important if we want to locate our location at the moment we take the snapshot.
We must emphasize that there is no front camera, so if we want to join the trend of selfies or self-portraits we must look for another device. However, it is not surprising that it does not have this feature, as secondary cameras are being touted with multi-megapixel lenses on high-end phones. And, as we have already warned, this is a terminal with limited functions.
Operating system and applications
The smartphone has the Google operating system for mobiles and tablets, Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat . This software, with respect to its previous versions, incorporates an improved notification bar and a more modern interface.
With respect to the ecosystem that surrounds it, the Galaxy Young 2 has the main services of the Mountain View company , among which are: Chrome, Drive, Photos, Gmail, Google+, Hangouts, Play Music or YouTube. Also, more than a million applications can be downloaded to the phone thanks to Google Play , the Google application store . Among them, the most popular apps that we can find are: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, Telegram or Line.
It should be noted that the Galaxy Young 2 has the basic functions of any smartphone today. In this way, it has a WiFi connection , to be able to connect to wireless networks without having to use your data rate. In addition, it is capable of Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS connections , so that we do not get lost if we want to take a road trip. Within these basic functions, we can also find a port for minijack 3.5 mm , for headphones or speakers, and another port for USB 2.0 micro , which will serve to load the terminal.
Autonomy and availability
The Galaxy Young 2 has an autonomy of 1,300 milliamps , which means that if we use the phone continuously, the battery will last less than a day. Still, the manufacturer has not yet said how many hours it takes for it to be fully consumed. It has also not revealed the exact date of departure of the device, although we know that it will be around the middle of July .
Price and reviews
This smartphone will be available around the middle of next month, but Samsung has not wanted to say its starting price. However, we can assume with respect to the characteristics that it has that its cost will be around 100 and 150 euros . In fact, the first version of this equipment costs 70 euros today.
The Galaxy Young 2 is a perfect terminal for people who want to make basic use of a mobile , since it will have an affordable price and limited functions . Therefore, it is recommended for all those who need a smartphone for work or for people who want to enter the world of smartphones with Android operating system .
