With its cuddly shape and Samsung’s latest design style, the Galaxy Fame looks like a super-miniaturized version of the Galaxy S4. The curvy chassis makes it fit nicely in our hand and the plastic-based material, make the Fame feel like any affordable entry-level model. However, thanks to its sturdy construction, the device actually feels quite solid.
The 3.5-inch HVGA display is a common characteristic of low-end smartphone, with noticeable pixelation, disappointing color representations and inadequate viewing angles. The Fame ranks really low on any benchmark result with the 1GHz single-core chip and 512MB of RAM.
On the bright side of things, it should be able to handle many casual games available in Google Play store. Temple Run and Angry Birds editions all run with acceptable frame rates. Samsung’s own custom interface offers various functional tweaks and visual changes to the Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) OS. Virgin Media prepaid subscribers can now obtain the Samsung Galaxy Fame for £159.99 with Pay As You Go plan.
