The Galaxy Young Duos smartphone belongs to the entry-level class and is the (unofficial) sequel to the Galaxy Y Duos. It is a dual SIM candidate for those who indeed want a smartphone, but do not require high performance from it or be satisfied with something simpler for price reasons. Because everything on Young Duos is a simple everyday use.
As the name suggests, it is to win, "young" customers for themselves, maybe students or trainees. This might fit, because the first smartphone, it is not bad and the very low price makes it well financially. In addition, the phone is simply extremely compact for an Android model: Who this is important, the device should also view more detail.
Display and Resolution
The full-touch display with 3.27 "(8.31 cm) screen size is one of the smallest in our leaderboard - apart from the simplest dual SIM phones keys once. The resolution is only 320 x 480 pixels is here incidentally still okay because the display area is small. Size and Resolution For photo and video fans certainly too low, but to display on the sofa YouTube clips or surfing, it is sufficient. The advantage of the small screen, of course, that the external dimensions can remain very compact as a whole and the smartphone characterized is a very handy companion. For small hands like children typically this is an added advantage.
Speaking of children's hands: The processing is solid, the phone should therefore be able to remain in use during normal handling and long.Besides maybe some sensitive model white color which could possibly fast times show at rather young children dirt tracks from the games, also gray (anthracite) and black are available.
Operating System and Processor
No longer brand new, but still is contemporary, the Android operating system in version 4.1. Most new models all currently have version 4.2, the changes are limited. Much more striking: The processor works with relatively modest 1GHz. This ensures usable speed, but there is always one to small delays. Switching between apps or between different screen contents are liquid, but a bit sluggish. Where top handsets switch quickly, it takes a moment here. You really notice it but only if you hold a high-end smartphone directly to compare bib. Once we have found ourselves in a while Galaxy Young Duos test, we found it only in individual cases.
What would be the right phone?
Be realistic: If you want to use elaborate games or demanding, compute-intensive apps will hardly buy a smartphone in the compact 3 to 3.5 inch class and finds the dual SIM mobile test more appropriate models. More likely you will opt for the Young Duos to surf a bit to take pictures, post them as per Whatsapp and to display one or another YouTube channel. For both surfing speed and amount of memory are sufficient: 1 GB of memory and (in view of the purchase price very good) 4 gigabytes of flash memory in the device itself provided by means of microSD card you can even add another 64 GB - which is far more than in is many more expensive models possible. Memory problems for photos, etc. are likely here so be the little problem. For Internet home WLAN is ready on the go are UMTS and HSPA possible with up to 7.2 megabits per second download speed.
Dual SIM features for young people?
The Galaxy Young Duos has two slots for SIM cards, between which you can switch without rebooting the smartphone. This is possible via the normal "settings" menu or via the usual "status bar" on top of the screen. Both offer in addition to the functions otherwise known respectively nor the dual SIM settings. This is very easy respectively, with one or two tips you switch from SIM1 to SIM2 and vice versa. However, one can also use both SIM cards simultaneously: It is possible to over the phone with a SIM card, while the second uses over a data connection.However, you can not make calls or texting the same as with almost all latest dual SIM mobile phones.
Mobile Internet is via both SIM cards, however, only on the card in slot 1 in UMTS speed, SIM2 only offers GRPS. SIM1 is the way the left from the direction card, if you have since removed battery and looks at the two Einsteckplätze. is resolved great that both slots are adjacent and are easily accessible. Both cards are 2 format standard SIM required course the Young duo also works with only one card inserted.
For trainees who wish to separate their private lives by the company, a mobile phone for 2 phones is certainly useful. What students or even teenagers otherwise a dual SIM phone might need, we do not really want clear. What could this be the reason: The fact that perhaps a prepaid card for general surfing, telephony and Lots uses - and if the balance is depleted, is for emergencies nor the SIM2 with separate telephony credit available? would also be conceivable that one wants to separate family and friends through various numbers, so that one is available to only the clique or only for the parents when necessary. Everything possible, even if it seems unconvincing. But however that may be, is the Young Duos for young people who for whatever reason need ever two phone numbers in the phone, an interesting option.
