Samsung’s new entry level smartphone called Galaxy Star Pro was recently launched into the market. However, Samsung did not make any sort of announcement regarding this phone beforehand, which is rather unusual. But this is not a huge issue considering that this was just an entry level phone and would not have gotten much coverage anyways. In the form of this phone, people who are just new to Android and are looking for a good entry level smartphone now have another decent addition to the list from which they can pick their phones. Samsung evidently has more serious business to talk care of in promoting its high-end phones and in dealing with its troubles in the legal battle against Apple.
Since this is just an entry level phone comparable with Samsung Galaxy Prevail II naturally the specifications are also not very top notch. The operating system on this phone is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it is powered by a 1 GHz Cortex A5 processor. The 4-inch display of the phone has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. We have a 512 MB RAM onboard and internal memory happens to be 4GB. But you do have the option of microSD card using which you can expand the memory up to 64GB. In addition, there is a 2 megapixel rear end camera onboard. The hardware specs are quite in line with most of the low-end devices that you would find in the current market and there is nothing surprising here.
Galaxy Star Pro comes with 1,500mAh battery which is more than sufficient for a small phone. As per the official measures, this battery can afford the phone 15 hours of call time or 370 hours in the standby mode, which is not bad at all. Other than these core specs, there would be usual apps and features that you would in most of the entry level phones in the market. For instance, the phone has support for Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. However, facility of 3G connectivity is missing which might turn out to be a letdown for some people. Overall, this little phone does not seem to be a bad package at all, particularly when you consider its price which is just over $100. With this phone you certainly have one more option if you were looking for entry level Android phones.
