Samsung Galaxy Pocket Design and Build Quality

Slim and compact are the right words to use to describe the Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300. It is a low-end smartphone that has the look of the more expensive Galaxy models. Samsung used the same type of plastic material for the Pocket S5300 as other models.

User Interface and Comfort to Use Samsung Galaxy Pocket

The full touch user interface has the intuitive TouchWiz overlay with Android 2.3 Gingerbread running underneath. It is the simple, easy to use interface that we have come to expect from Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Music Player and FM Radio

If you want to listen to music, you simply need to have your music files in P3, WAV, or eAAC file format. In case you get tired of your music or do not have them loaded, you can use the stereo FM to listen to the radio. Audio sound quality is very solid and even better via the 3.5mm headphones.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Camera and Image Quality

Although the camera is only 2MP, the images turn out fairly clear. Resolution tops out at 1600x1200 pixels. There is also a Geo-tagging feature and an image editor to fix up your shots right on the device. It would have been nice for Samsung to add an auto focus feature.

Video Camera and Video Quality

Video can be recorded at 15 frames per second. It is going to record very average quality videos overall.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Connectivity Options

You've got options on this quad band device that supports 2G GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 bands. If you have access to it, there is also 3G 900 and 2100 bands available. Bluetooth will be supported up to version 3.0. To transfer files to a laptop or computer, microUSB 2.0 support is available.

Google Maps and GPS

As an Android-based device, the Pocket S5300 has Google Maps readily available to navigate the roads. It is also AGPS enabled which is a plus.

Value for Money and Verdict

This entry level Galaxy device can be bought for Rs. 6700 (approx., may vary). This is a great price point for a phone that has some nice features and the Samsung quality brand behind it. Whether you are looking for a budget Android device or are a first time smartphone users, the Pocket S5300 will not disappoint.
