Samsung Galaxy Music Duos


Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy Music Duos to the market in Dec 2012. It was their addition to the budget smartphone category. It looks quite nice, it is sweetly small and works very well. It is quite surprisingly better built for the price it is and is powered with the best of Samsung.
We will tell you why this is the best budget smartphone you can get in the market.

Samsung Galaxy Music Duos Design
The Galaxy Music Duos is curved too much around the corners. It has a very smooth finish on the back. It has a flat back rather than curved being a little curved. It certainly looks better than the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and Samsung Galaxy Ace. On the right side you have the dedicated camera button on the bottom and lock/power button on the top. You the the 3.5mm headphone jack on the top with the connection to the USB/Charger. On the left you have the volume rocker and the microSD card slot with which you can expand your already 4GB storage to 32GB. It offers you dual sim capabilities, so if you have lives you want to keep separate, it helps you in every way (if you know what I mean). Galaxy Music comes in 3 colours: Gray, Orange and Blue.


Samsung Galaxy Music Duos
It has kind of missed the mark on display. Samsung fails to provide you a 16 million color screen. The display is a 3 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen. The pixel density is about 133 ppi with a resolution of 240×320 pixels. It does not come and scream “wow” on your face nor does it say “argh”. Its fairly decent but we expected much out of it. You can occasionally use it to view videos but you eyes would hurt to look at such a small screen. Also the keyboard seems to be a little cluttered and you will be easily hitting the wrong keys.


Samsung Galaxy Music Duos Camera
Galaxy Music carries a good 3.15MP camera (primary) which has small features like geo tagging and touch to focus. There is no secondary/front camera support. The images are captured in a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels. Video capturing quality of this phone is suprisingly good.


Android Ice Cream Sandwhich
I won’t say this is your ideal platform to play games but yeah good enough. Not decent, good enough. The 850 Mhz Cortex processor works quite well to provide your phone with the fuel it needs to multitask, manage and power the app you currently run. The best part about it is “Android 4.0.2 BY SAMSUNG” You are getting an ICS phone at such a low price along with 512MB of RAM and a 850 Cortex, I would buy this straight! It is planned to be upgraded to Android v4.1 Jelly Bean.


The phone comes with an internal memory of internal memory of 4GB. It is surely expandable to up to 32GB using the microSD cards. The RAM on this phone is a 512MB RAM which compliments its 850Mhz processor quite well. You get bluetooth v3.0 to share your files around. It obviously does “not” have a NFC support. You got wifi to connected through the network over a wifi network. You also get feature of wifi-hotspot. It supports EDGE, GPRS and 3G data on the phone. It does not support a full 41 Mbps but HSDPA up to 7Mbps. Through the wire you can move files and data through the microUSB port at the bottom of the phone.

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.
