Where I am in Indonesia the second hand market is full of Galaxy Y's and Ace's. You have to be very careful in buying a lower end android as they loose a lot of their value as soon as you buy them. No one wants them & cannot even trade up as the shop will give very little money for them. The other thing is the lag - man the damn lagging makes me crazy. So I have gone for mid range with at least 1 of ram. My Y was a snail with 512 ram and just too frustrating sometime to use. Dont buy any thing with little ram and storage.
Very good phone as compared to price.It's price is same as galaxy pop but twice better in hardware and software .Nowadays phones are very cheap but better quality.
Everything basic as expected, but really interesting that phone features GPS... Looks like that became really standard...
Anonymous, 23 May 2013Wp also lags and hang. What made you think it doesn't? The worst part of it is, it is already... moreUse a windows phone den cmmnt. I am using lumia 720 and galaxy grand. Windows is way faster dan android. Live tiles r way more useful dan those live wallpapers
Anonymous, 23 May 2013Wp also lags and hang. What made you think it doesn't? The worst part of it is, it is already... moreMate... you have no idea what you are talking about! There is absolutely no sign of a lag on WP and what app takes 3 to 4 seconds to launch? The Nokia Lumia 520 is far superior to the galaxy young. The young should rather be a 99 EUR. Phone
Its a shame this phone could be priced as much as a lumia. Also, from my experience with the samsung galaxy duos, its clear that android needs powerful hardware to run smoothly (Yes, nokia AND android fan)
LG L3 ii dual better than xperia e and young. Lg L3 ii have IPS display and better battery backup :)
iosgood, 23 May 2013Yawn... another boring laggy Android phone that is too expensive even at this price.Wp also lags and hang. What made you think it doesn't? The worst part of it is, it is already running on a abacus like os, but still lag. No live wallpaper, no graphic effect transition, just resizable brick menu, takes 3-4 seconds to open apps, and still it lags. You can compare the os to a calculator, but it still lags.
patrick, 23 May 2013There's no competition between android and windows. Android is the best even lw end devices ru... moreYou know, WP8 runs smoothly on all devices, from low to high end. How come Nokia have made a dual-Krait 150 euro phone while Samsung and friends haven't? Android only runs well on dual-core.
i think its more ram compared to its fame sibling is for its future updates.
i think this time, they would n0t abandon its lowest end smartphone. haha.
A Samsung and Handroid - the two words that make every normal person avoid any devices connected with those.
AnonD-121629, 23 May 2013NOw let me ask one question from GSMARENA...WHY ON EARTH THEY ARE REVIEWING..this cheap device... moreI think it is because of availability and popularity. Samsung's is popular/well-known and available in most country, thus more ppl are looking forward to grab Samsung's phone (same as other well-known manufacturers' phone like Apple, Htc, LG, Sony and etc.). Compare to Micromax's phone, it is less popular and less available in many countries (like my country, Malaysia, not available for any Micromax phone here). Thus reviewing these well-know/high-availability phone will benefit more interesting buyers.
Anyway, just my opinion.
There's no competition between android and windows. Android is the best even lw end devices running android can play many hd games etc Samsung's android are popular and they're the best.
@GSMArena, can you please also review Galaxy Win/Galaxy Grand Quattro?
AnonD-134497, 23 May 2013Don't understand it either.micromax, carbon bring which android device there is no innovation no own ui or customization.thats why they dont interested to review it. if nokia bring dumb asha phone dsmarena review it. wait for new asha 501 review
