Samsung’s Dual-SIM Galaxy Win and Galaxy Star

Samsung’s Android Smartphones with Dual-SIM that fits up to your budget, the entry level Galaxy Star and the mid-range level Galaxy Win!

simply sellular complaints

Details on Samsung Galaxy Win:
The Samsung Galaxy Win is a mid-range Android Smartphone (because some of the specs were lacking, in comparison on high end Smartphone like S3 and S4). The Samsung Galaxy Win has many variants and alias, the Samsung Galaxy GT-I8550 (Single SIM) and GT-I8552 (Dual SIM). In other country, it is also called as Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro.

This budget Quad-core, has a processor not equivalent to the Galaxy S3 or high-end Galaxy Series. It has Cortex-A5 based chipset, upfront you will get a decent 4.7 inch TFT LCD capacitive touch screen, glossy plastic type finish on its body, and at the sides is some sort of plastic metal type finish. Curved sides are a resemblance of S3 type, which is feels like outdated form factor, but still currently elegant and appealing.

To give you more detailed review, here’s the Antutu Benchmark of the Samsung Galaxy Win.

5MP Main Rear Camera, has a quality that brings a decent shots. See the sample photo below.

About its VGA Front Camera, has some noise on it (which is some sort of small dotted on the screen, it might look you’re photo distorted). Looks terrible? I know the feeling and I’ve been there, since the beginning of VGA camera.

Video Quality: Non-HD but I’m sure and positive it can deliver good quality of video recording with good lighting conditions.

Battery Juice: You can have estimated 8 hours of normal usages (whether some sort of text messages / calls), but using it on listening music, watching videos, games or internet usages might in need of spare battery pack or power bank. For my opinion, this phone might need 2,500 mAh battery, noting that this is a Quad-core Smartphone and has a 4.7 inch display.

Running on Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with a Quad Core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A5 based Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200 chipset, 1GB RAM has everything you need on Multitasking.  Dual SIM network, decent performance and overall look has everything you need for a budget Quad-core.
