With Samsung launching its second budget phone in one week, it would appear that the Korean cell phone manufacturer is all set to take over the budget phone arena with their galaxy flagship, or at least they’re trying. Although Samsung has quickly become the leading name in the smartphone arena it seems that they have lost touch with the low end side of the market. The New Samsung Galaxy Star Pro stands witness to this fact. The Galaxy Star Pro seems like an extremely mediocre product and doesn’t really do justice to its ‘Samsung Galaxy’ tag. The Samsung Galaxy Star Pro Price in India has been tagged at Rs. 6,989 which seems a fair enough price until you take a look at the minimal hardware, you are getting.

The Samsung Galaxy Star Pro Specifications are at best minimal with just enough juice to get the phone to work. The galaxy Star is powered by a single core 1 GHz cortex A-5 processor with no GPU and only 512 MB RAM. The phone offers an internal memory of 4 GB which can be expanded to 32 GB via the microSD card. The phone operates on Android 4.1.2 Jellybean OS. The Galaxy Star Pro offers just the bare essentials and nothing more.
Just like the Specifications the display for this device is also minimal and quite literally. The Samsung Galaxy Star Pro features a WVGA 480x800p 4 inch TFT capacitive touch screen which offers just 233 ppi pixel density. Enjoying a movie on this phone has just become pretty much impossible.
The Samsung Galaxy Star Pro’s camera is pretty much just present for namesake. The phone features just a single 2 MP camera and no front camera ergo no video calling feature.
This rig is powered by a tiny little 1500 mAh battery which is expected to give you only around 15 hrs of talk time and around 26 hours of music playback despite the low end screen.
After a monster phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 the Samsung Galaxy Star Pro is sort of a disappointment. It is understandable cutting down specs to fit it into to budget but it is still unacceptable that there are better smartphones with a smaller price tag offering much more than the Star.
