Samsung Galaxy Fame S6810 review: Decent Low-End Android

posted at 23 April 2013 by Josh


The Samsung Galaxy Fame is yet another S III look-alike, a low-end Android that addresses mostly to the budget-conscious customers and younger crowd. Among other interesting features, the smartphone offers a 3.5-inch screen, a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixels camera, and 4GB of storage. The specs are definitely not impressive, but decent, especially since the Fame also comes with a pretty low price tag.

The Samsung Galaxy Fame has a pebble-like shape with glossy front and back sides, it is easy to handle and operate, and its curved body makes it fit perfectly in the hand. Even if the device is made out of plastic, fortunately, you won’t be getting that cheap feel of most entry-level phones, but rather a pretty solid one.

The Samsung Galaxy Fame features a 3.5-inch LCD screen with a low resolution of only 320 by 480 pixels, and that leads to, pixelation around the graphic elements, but also rather poor viewing angles, color representation and outdoor visibility.

The Fame has its volume rocker on the left, the power key on its right side, and a home button underneath the display. Luckily, all physical buttons are easy to reach and also provide very good tactile feedback, and so are the two capacitive buttons that complement the home key.

The back side of the Galaxy Fame holds the 5-megapixels camera, the LED flash, and the loudspeaker grille. Under the cover, you'll find the microSD card slot and the 1300 mAh battery Li-Ion battery.
