Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Young DUOS GT-S6312
For the young. The Samsung Galaxy Young is a handy smartphone for novices and the young. As its street price of 125 Euros (~$164) is rather low, you will have to live with several limitations, won't you? We will discover them in our review.

The Galaxy Young's low price and the fact it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are really all it has going for it. Its low grade hardware and dire performance mean that we'd rather have an alternative budget smartphone running Ice Cream Sandwich, or even Windows Phone 8, which can deliver in these key areas.
