A pretty bad deal for most phone buyers

from TrustedReviews

Samsung stopped offering competitive low-end and cheap mid-range phones a while ago, and the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 is proof that nothing has changed yet. It’s worse in almost every respect than the phones available at this price from companies such as Motorola, Sony and Huawei.

The Samsung Galaxy Young 2 is left with one potential advantage: it’s pretty small, making it easier for kids to handle. However, given the screen, the CPU and the camera are lacking compared with those of its rivals, the Young 2’s proposition is either ill-advised or deeply cynical. A case of: it’s a phone for the kids, so it doesn’t need to be any good. It’s barely better than the 18-month-old Galaxy Young, and that was bad to start with...

Assessed next to the Motorola Moto E, a phone of a similar price and with a reasonably kid-friendly form, the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 is almost laughably poor. To actually stack up among its peers the Young 2 would need to cost significantly less than £50. But in reality it costs significantly more from many places. We’ve seen it sold for as much as £90, and at that price it could very well be the very worst choice you could make.

k.williams

cant get rid of that bloody lock

can u give advice on how to get rid of it
Sharon

Its OK but there is no battery percentage indicator.

Why are mobile phones not user friendly

Just got the phone through talktalk. Find it not that easy, why does the lock come up, difficult to remove, they say two taps, but does not always work. Why is it there?
