This time there is a face-off between pocket friendly dual sim budget android phones; the Galaxy Y Duos S6102 and the Galaxy Pocket Duos S5302. These two smartphones are champions in their own right, but if force comes to leave and you had to choose one, which one is truly ought to have a position in your pocket? Let’s discover it out.
Ergonomics & Design:
The Samsung Galaxy Pocket duos measures 103.9 x 57.9 x 13 mm and 103gm in weight, while the Samsung Galaxy Y duos is slightly larger at 109.8 x 60 x 11.98 mm and 109gm.
The Y duos has a 3.14-inch TFT display and while the Pocket duos has a 2.80-inch TFT display. Both Smartphones offer a sharp 240 x 320-pixel resolution.
Both the phones are equipped with Single core 832 MHz processor and runs on the older OS version 2.3.x Gingerbread, which is well complimented by a 290MB RAM.
The Galaxy Pocket Duos has an internal memory of 3GB, which is more than the 512MB system memory of Y duos. Both the devices have the same expansion capacity up to 32GB.
The Y duos have a 3.15 MP fixed-focus camera and while the Pocket Duos features a 2 MP camera. Unfortunately, none of the devices have secondary camera. You might think that the Y Duos has an advantage in this section, but let me tell you that both of the cameras are not good enough and take somewhat similar pictures.
On the connectivity front, both models come standard with a full range of connection options, from Dual SIM, Bluetooth 3.0, 802/11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, FM Radio, Accelerometer etc.
The Galaxy Y Duos comes with a 1300 mAh battery which provides around 630 hours of standby time and 17 hours of talk time while the Pocket Duos has a 1200 mAh battery that provides around 15 hours of talk time and 410 hours of standby time.
The Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos and the Galaxy Y Duos are priced at $110 and $125 respectively.
There is difference of few bucks but one should not throw away his hard earned money. Thus when considered overall the merits stand a bit taller than the demerits. The drawbacks are all less complicated (except camera performance at night) for an economic model. Both are a little bit on the huge part, but still slim enough to fall into a wallet. I will give my full and final recommendation to the Galaxy Y Duos.
