The Samsung Galaxy Pocket

I am sure everyone has heard of this phone somehow. From radio adverts, to TV ones, to posters.. the Samsung Galaxy Pocket is the ultimate budget smartphone.

Here is What I love About the Phone

Slim, sleek design

It’s a relatively small phone, and fits perfectly in your hand. I guess it’s called the pocket because it can easily fit in any pocket without the huge bulge some phones give you!

Brilliant Resolution

It has a screen size of 2.8 inches but a good resolution. The display is smooth and fluid (sounds like PR words I know!) but it’s the truth. There is just no other way to describe it, the display is fair to look upon!

Responsiveness and performance

By now you know I’m firmly #teamSamsung and to quote someone who blogged about Samsung phones:

The new Samsung phones ni kama madem wa Campo. Una-touch, inafungua. Una-touch, inafungua. No delays

The phone will give you a good performance with an internal memory of 3GB and allows you to have a memory card of up to 32GB. This is huge internal memory, the Galaxy Y Duos I’m using has only 160MB of memory for my apps, it’s already full and slows down on me at times and I had to uninstall some apps. The Galaxy Pocket has 3GB of internal memory, you can download as many apps as you want and performance will not be affected.


The Galaxy Pocket comes with 2 MegaPixel camera, which takes reasonably good photos. With good lighting, you can take printable pics.


The phone goes for Kshs.9,999. It’s the cheapest Android phone with the best performance. Enough said.

You can read the full specifications of the phone on GSM Arena

I’d recommend this phone to anyone who’s never used a smartphone before. It is a perfect beginner’s phone. I would also recommend it to to anyone who has a budget of 10K and is wondering which phone to buy!
