The Galaxy Young is often referred to as a backup or festival phone. But its name actually refers to a phone that’s meant for kids.
I don’t know what Samsung was thinking. I don’t know any kid in their right mind that’ll accept this phone.
Features are seriously lacking.
This phone is more for an old school cat that just needs something for text and talk. Forget about gaming, instagram, and whatever other modern smartphone features out there.
The only thing that makes sense about the Galaxy Young is getting rid of it.
You’ll be better off with extending your budget to a phone that’s more future proof. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to do so.
Gizmogo allows you to sell or trade your gadgets for your dream device.
All you have to do is follow a few easy steps. But before we get into that, let’s take a deeper look at the Galaxy Young.
Samsung Galaxy Young is a good looking phone.
The phone is tiny and lightweight due to its plastic construction. You can leave the phone in your pocket all day without realizing it’s there.
Although the phone is cheap, the silver metal edges give it some class.
Though tiny, the Galaxy Young is 12mm thick. So you’ll get a firm grip.
The sides have a metal power/sleep and volume buttons along with a microUSB port. The bottom has a 3.5mm headphone jack. And the front has a Galaxy home button with a menu and back button on its side.
Let’s now look at the display.
Once we get away from the Galaxy Young’s good looks, we start to see why this phone is cheap.
You’ll struggle with a 3.27-inch screen. It’s large enough for text and maybe email. But it’s horrible for browsing and streaming.
The 320 x 480 screen resolution isn’t any better. One word: atrocious.
Couple the tiny screen and weak resolution with a discontinued OS… contastrophy!
The display doesn’t auto adjust screen brightness. You’ll have to manually adjust brightness to prevent your eyes and battery from straining.
Surprisingly, the screen is rather responsive. Unsurprisingly, the responsiveness goes away once the app is activated. It delays a second or so before it opens. Once it opens, don’t expect too much.
The display is being powered by a 1.0 GHz single core processor.
It’s slow as a snail.
Opening and running apps is a heavy task with itself.
The performance really starts to slow down once you actually use the app. Even tapping the app will delay a second or two. But what more could you expect from an outdated OS being pushed by a 1.0 GHz single core processor and 768MB of RAM.
To make matters worse there’s only 2GB or available storage. A few snaps and downloads, you can kiss that storage goodbye. If you want more, you have to buy a microSD card, which defeats the purpose.
Earlier I mentioned you can’t take selfies. But wait until I tell you about the rear camera.
You’ll have a blast with this camera if you’re into old western films. The 3.15MP camera is so bad you’ll think the photos were from the 70s. Only use I can think of for this camera is for a 70s custom party. Your photos would look spot on.
Okay, I’ve done enough bashing. Let’s now review your sell options.
There’s two available deals for your Galaxy Young. You can choose to:
Sell Galaxy Young for cash or
Trade in Galaxy Young
If you want cash return, this option is for you.
Preparing to sell your Galaxy Young is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:
● Transfer all your files to another device or an external storage device
● Make sure you remove all passwords and give access
● Restore your phone to factory settings
Done! That’s it.
Now you can sell your phone.
If you don’t want cash, you can trade in Galaxy Young instead.
Just follow the same steps listed above.
When you finish completing the steps, trading your phone will be a cinch.
That Galaxy Young is an outdated phone. And you’ll be lucky to get $5 for it. But hey! At the end of the day, five bucks can get you a cup of coffee. Or it could go into your new phone of your choosing. Either way, you’ll be better off with it.
