Samsung Start Pro is another smartphone in Samsung’s infantry to tackle the growing markets of Micromax and Karbonn and also Xolo. It comes off to be very similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S Duos II but has it’s own little tweaks to make it different. It is a great phone but not an amazing one.

Design

As I said, this phone is very similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S Duos II, well in looks it actually looks the same. Practically if we see, that’s what Samsung does- make phones that all looks the same. Samsung Start Pro has a nice plastic body and the accurate curves on the edge crafts for your hand to hold it perfectly. Also, the rather decent size of the phone helps. The weight of the Samsung Start Pro is not at all a problem. Portability is not an issue at all here.

Display

You also get the same 4 inch TFT display with a resolution of 480×800 pixels, similar to that on most budget Samsung phones. The display is very clear and it perfects a great deal of detail. The colours generated are depicted in the most computerized way and do not seem real in any way possible. Samsung Start Pro has good graphics, certainly better than the the competition has. Samsung Start Pro’s black levels are a little off thought.

Camera

I have no clue as to what got into Samsung while doing this, but they have done it anyway. Samsung Start Pro has a 2MP primary camera! Yes PRIMARY CAMERA and there is no front camera at all. Be prepared to look at some highly noisy photographs from the Samsung Start Pro and not even consider taking a video. Though it might have so many modes to play from, Samsung Start Pro just isn’t the casual camera that you want on your smartphone.

Software

Samsung Start Pro run son the Android v4.1 Jelly Bean OS with a skinned TouchWiz which is Samsung’s own user interface. They certainly do not provide you with any fancy features but the phone does look pretty good with this skin which we are all familiar with.

Performance

Even the performance is not a strong suit of the Samsung Start Pro. It just comes with a 1GHz Cortex-A5 which certainly is not what you thought you would have in your smartphone. Samsung Start Pro has 4GB of internal storage capacity which is expandable to up to 32GB. 512MB RAM support is what you get on Samsung Start Pro. The phone has a really good battery at it can get you through with almost 2 days of medium usage.
