Samsung Galaxy Express Hands On

Here at the Mobile World Congress, Samsung showcased its product portfolio that includes the Galaxy Express. One of its newest phones, it has a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus capactive screen which looks quite nice though slightly blurred out because of the low pixel density.

The size of the phone is on the larger side but it manages to fit in well in the hand. The smooth curves mean that it fits comfortably well in the hand though the cheap plastic used doesn’t look too good. 

The back of the phone sports the 5MP auto focus camera. There’s an LED flash to the right of the phone. Video recording maxes out at 720p. A 1.3 MP camera is provided for video calls on the front of the handset.

The right side of the handset has the power key. Internally the phone is powered by a 1.2 ghz dual core processor which is paired with 1GB of RAM that keeps things running smoothly.

Storage is 8GB but can be further expanded by up to 32GB via the microSD card slot located on the left of the handset. With a screen that big, you’ll definitely want to watch some multimedia content and that’s where the microSD slot will come in handy.

The phone sports a single physical menu key. The back of the device is removable and you can replace the 2,000 mAh battery if needed. Overall we found the Android Jellybean based Samsung Galaxy Express quite an interesting device which would benefit from a higher resolution display.
