It is a blessing for people who cannot spend much bucks on smartphones and cannot pay a huge amount for fulfilling their android touchscreen dream.

The 2 megapixels camera in Samsung Galaxy Young is truly heartbreaking, one could easily expect a 3.2 mp camera. But for the price that this smartphone comes, people usually do overlook the fact of having only 2 mp camera. Well the 2 mp camera mounted is not alll that bad.
Well, as per my personal opinion I am not happy with display of Samsung Galaxy Young. I can say I expected more from them, as I think Samsung smartphones give one of the best available displays in the market. Maybe the high expectations of the brighter display from a Samsung phone breaks my heart when it comes to Samsung Galaxy Young.
It has a Li-Ion 1200 mAh battery; well, I will rate the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy Young as satisfactory and good. The other users of the phone has also never complained of the battery.
Touch response of a phone is a major factor when it comes to rating a smartphone. Well, In case of Samsung Galaxy Young I would say, that the touch response is quite good and smooth. In a one line I can state, that the touch is the best of what one can expect in a low-budgeted smartphone.
