"Samsung quietly releases Galaxy Star Pro, forgets to announce it" - forget? wow samsung created a phone and forgot that they created it...
I have Nexus 7 II, Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia 701 and Iphone 5s.
Android have many free apps (and its easy to get cracked apps). It dont lag but when you start filling the storage, It starts laging and sometimes screen is stuck for 5 to 10 secs(mostly happens while using internet). Its great for gaming :)
Lumia have..... 41 mp camera and trust me it is great. The hump in the back is not as bad as most reviews tell. Easy to pocket but hard to put on table and use with one hand.
WP8 indeed lacks the apps arsenal but it have most of the important apps. In short wp8 lacks most of the games that were released before wp8 came to life and most of the crap or repetitive apps. This phone dont have the problem of getting lags when storage is filled. However its great battery life reduce when apps are installed. (i think they run in background and need to be turned off to fix this issue).
Tiles look boring in theory only. Before getting this phone i had same opinion as most ppl that tiles are boring. NO SIR live tiles are not boring at all and they are very much customizable.
Lumia have some xbox games which are cool but it cant match the games line up of android. And no cracked apps.
I have just recently got my iphone 5s. didnt get enough time to play with it. But It looks very nice too. Lacks customization but still looks good. No lags experienced yet. Apps store and play store are like in sync. all apps are available in both stores. Finger print unlock is very accurate. Apps are all paid but it will be jail breakable soon :D.
You can say that i was iphone hater. I got it as a gift from someone and now that i get to use it, its very different from iphone 4(last iphone i used). Looks screen and battery life are all awesome. But still i think its over priced. And its hard to get used to ios after using android. But it will take maybe 2 more days to get used to it :D.
this phone is not intended to rival 520
I think this phone is released in reply to asha phones. Most of the asha phones are in this range
One had to think before comment
This phone cant beat lumia 520 or either 525 because they are successful phones
Samsung almost forgets, because all of their phones look the same. You can't identify who's who.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2013Well, do you have official youtube app then? Real racing 2013? Still much more. So that makes ... moredont forget, some people buy phone because its a phone, not a toy or a gaming console
Next Samsung will come out with smartphone under $49 for poor nation.
OMGush, 01 Oct 2013Lagdroid. Better get a 520 with that budget.For what? to see those boring flat tiles?
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2013The price is not bad for a 4 inch Android phone but no 3G makes it something else than an Andr... moreNo one else but the price killed Xperia J. Rs14+ k were just too much for it. Samsung is good when comes at pricing. Not best seeing what else you could get on going all chinese, but among the brands, Samsung phones are possibly the best priced ones.
Gelvin, 01 Oct 2013No apps and games? Really? You must have logged into GSMArena after over a year, right? Well, do you have official youtube app then? Real racing 2013? Still much more. So that makes it to say its got no appzzzz & no gamezzzzz.
all samsung cellphones, like s4, note 3, active, gear, star pro...etc and so many has the same design, which is so boring.. u can see by the name that im an Xperia fan and lover, at least sony has many different phones that doesn't look the same, and not to mention the great features & specs along with the build quality and design.
pix, 01 Oct 2013Windows is boring .No apps no games .1110 is better than that .window8 is good but not best like android. But Lumia 520 best phone.
i9000 with 2.3.6
and this phone with same spec have android 4.1?
sorry Samsung you are Evil!!!
Why on earth you need to buy this Galaxy in such price that you can buy device like ZTE V970, which is at the same price range but much more capable. The ZTE V970 as bigger screen and higher res and also IPS-LCD look better choice than TFT, more memory ram, 3G Support (did samsung lost there mind? who will buy phone today without 3G support), better cpu\gpu, GPS Support (did samsung lost there mind? my old n95 support GPS...), better camer.. The price looks cheap, but you can buy better device's in this price range,
and also i need to mention, the ZTE V970 have nice community out there.. and there are more examplase from Lenovo\Sony\Nokia that will do better job at the same price.
