What are the strengths of the Galaxy Young 2? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the Galaxy Young 2 is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy Young 2

The camera function of Galaxy Young 2

The Galaxy Young 2 has a 15 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The battery performance of Galaxy Young 2

The battery of the Galaxy Young 2 has a capacity of 1300mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Galaxy Young 2 is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Galaxy Young 2's size

The Galaxy Young 2 is 2.4inches (59.9mm) wide, 4.3inches (109.8mm) tall, and 0.46inches (11.8mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Galaxy Young 2, it weighs about 3.8oz (108g). The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

The size and weight of the Galaxy Young 2 make it very comfortable to use. If you're looking for a smartphone that is easy to handle and carry around, then this should be your first choice.

Galaxy Young 2's screen

The Galaxy Young 2 has a 3.5 inch screen. It comes in a standard size, and the screen is adequate for most uses. Some users may feel that they would rather have a larger screen, however.

The Galaxy Young 2 feels rough overall in terms of screen cleanliness. If you're planning to use your smartphone every day, you should consider a higher-grade device.

The CPU performance of Galaxy Young 2

The processing performance of the Galaxy Young 2 is quite low at 1.0GHz×1(Single core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Galaxy Young 2 only has 512.0MB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Galaxy Young 2's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Galaxy Young 2's storage capacity

The Galaxy Young 2 has 4GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Galaxy Young 2 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Galaxy Young 2

The Galaxy Young 2's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Galaxy Young 2

The merits of Galaxy Young 2

The demerits of Galaxy Young 2

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
