83% Review Samsung Galaxy Young DUOS GT-S6312 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
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.
50% Samsung Galaxy Young review: a budget Android Jelly Bean smartphone
Source: PC Advisor English
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.

This is one of the smallest diagonal for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
