Most affordable Star of the Galaxy
Samsung Galaxy Star is the cheapest Samsung Android phone sporting a 3 inch capacitive touch screen running Android 4.1.2 Jellybean out of the box. It features a 1GHz processor along with 512MB of ram which is enough to keep the device running smoothly during multi-tasking.
On the camera front, it offers 2 Mega Pixels camera at the back but lacks a front camera for video calling. Samsung Galaxy Star houses 4GB of internal memory to store your stuffs and is further expandable up to 32GB.
Being an ultra-affordable device, it lacks 3G but features 2G and Wi-Fi for internet connectivity. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth v4.0, Micro-USB etc.
Samsung Galaxy Star is the cheapest Android device from the Samsung Galaxy series. The company has focused on affordability hence compromised with some core features (e.g. 3G) to keep the costing in control. However, kudos to Samsung for providing a good configuration, storage and latest OS at this price. Recommended if you can survive without 3G.

Overall: Yes, it is lowest priced Android smartphone by Samsung, but for that they made the hardware feeble. It is powered by a SC6820 chip from Spreadtrum (single-core 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A5 with Mail-300 graphics). Naturally it doesn't support 3G. None of the Spreadtrum's processor support HSPA standard used for 3G in India. So you are stuck with 2G or to search for a Wifi connection. Now a days cost of 3G service is comparable with 2G and 2G is really slow. It will be hell to download any app in 2G.nThe screen is small for a touchscreen only mobile and that too of low resolution. Its really tough to type on small onscreen keyboards, or to view a website. Anyway you will not be interested to surf internet on slow 2G. The Lack of 3G and the 3" screen with low 320 x 240 (QVGA) resolution is the main weakness of this set. nPerformance wise it is not so bad.. at least comparable with previous budget Galaxy sets. Samsung has giving Android Jellybean 4.1 instead of turnkey Android by Spreadtrum, so they have made it by themselves, and so it is expected that the SW is optimised for the device and 512 MB RAM is OK for it. nActually don't expect something spectacular but the phone runs Android 4.1.2 fairly well. Games like Temple Run 2, Stick Tennis run satisfactorily..for the price.nAt this price this is the best from Samsung.. They are not going to leave their profit anyway.. Now if it fits your requirement and bill is to be decided by you.. You are getting a smartphone with proper OS at the price of a feature-phone and its from a reputed company Samsung :-)nnPros: n1) Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung customization and motion UIn2) 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage and Micro SD support up to 32GBn3) Dual SIMn4) Wifin5) Low pricen6) Support network - Its from Samsung, a reputed brandnnCons:n1) Small 3" screen with very low 320 x 240 (QVGA) resolutionn2) No 3G (Now a days cost of 3G service is quite comparable with 2G)n3) Feeble chipsetn4) 2MP camera (Well, OK for this price)n5) No A-GPS chip present.n6) 1,200mAh battery (but with moderate use it should easily last a day)n7) This handset support only Micro SIM. You need to cut your existing SIM.nnNote: Whatsapp works in this set. For Whatsapp to work download it from its website(whatsapp.com) and then install.
