Galaxy Star 2's features, performance, reviews

Galaxy Star 2's camera specs

Galaxy Star 2 has a 2 MP main camera, which is a very low figure. Unless you do not care about image quality or unless you rarely use the camera, you should probably choose a higher-grade smartphone.

Galaxy Star 2's battery performance

The battery performance of the Galaxy Star 2 is 1300mAh, which is a relatively small capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Galaxy Star 2 is not very good. It is enough to look things up on your phone occasionally, but if you are looking something up for a long time, playing games, or watching videos, you should have a spare mobile battery to be safe.

Galaxy Star 2's size

The Galaxy Star 2 has a width of 2.4inches (59.9mm), a length of 4.3inches (109.8mm), and a thickness of 0.5inches (11.8mm). Men with large hands can easily operate it single-handedly, but a woman with a small hand might feel like the size is a bit bigger. In addition, the weight of the Galaxy Star 2 is about 3.8oz (107.6g). Even if you are operating it with one hand it feels almost weightless, and even after using it for a while your hands will not get tired.

Assessing the overall ease of holding the Galaxy Star 2, this smartphone is very easy to hold both in terms of size and weight. If you desire something portable and easy to hold, it is the best.

Galaxy Star 2's screen

Galaxy Star 2 has a 3.5 inch display. It is a regular size, large enough for normal use. However, some users may feel that a bit more space might be helpful.

In terms of screen quality, Galaxy Star 2's screen appears pixelated overall. If you plan to use it a lot, we recommend buying a higher-grade smartphone.

Galaxy Star 2's CPU specs

With the 1.0GHz×1(Single core) for processing power, the Galaxy Star 2 has low performance, and even for net browsing and Twitter usage you will probably feel a little dissatisfied.

The Galaxy Star 2 has only 512.0MB of RAM, quite a small amount. Cases of insufficient RAM occur regularly so even when using light apps there will be instability in operation and jerkiness.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the Galaxy Star 2, it is a low-end smartphone and even in everyday use feels jumpy and jerky. There will probably be a lot of cases when you feel that it is lacking in performance.

Galaxy Star 2's storage size

The data storage capacity of the Galaxy Star 2 is 4GB, and if its main use is for texting and social media then there is no problem, but if you plan to use it for things like photography, filming, and games, you should go with one that is a step up.

The Galaxy Star 2 is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.

Galaxy Star 2's general rating

The Galaxy Star 2 is a budget smartphone. As the main smartphone it is somewhat insufficient, and you should consider a slightly higher-end smartphone if possible. It will be enough for people who use only basic functions such as telephone and internet, or people who do not use smartphones.

Advantages and disadvantages of Galaxy Star 2

Advantages of Galaxy Star 2

  • The design makes it very easy to hold. It can be comfortably used when held in one hand.
  • It is lightweight and very portable.

Disadvantages of Galaxy Star 2

  • The screen is very pixelated, and not suited for viewing photos or watching videos.
  • It has a relatively short battery life, so you need to be watchful of the remaining battery when using it for some purposes.
  • It has a low-grade CPU, so you will experience severe stuttering when using an app.
  • It has a very low-grade rear camera, so it should not be considered as a main camera.
