By -

Competition in the mobile phone industry is intense, but it is the high end that take center stage and sometimes it seems that no other phones beyond the heavyweights of each manufacturer. However, the manufacturers that get placed on the top of this battle have a much wider catalog. The high end is the tip of the iceberg but the success of a brand is based on reach all kinds of clients, from what you want a super mobile advanced to those who prefer something simple that is not too expensive. Samsung would be a good example for illustrate, the Korean manufacturer has a very large catalog that continues to grow.

A few days ago presented the Galaxy Samsung Star and Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo two devices aimed at entry-younger audience. The benefits offered by these two models are somewhat modest but more than enough for us to access social networks, browse the Internet, take pictures or record videos to share with our friends. Also carry dual SIM and its biggest advantage is that come standard with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean , one of the most current versions of the Google platform, the same one that most high-end phones. The Samsung Galaxy Neo and Samsung Galaxy Pocket Star two very similar terminals, see their differences on a comparative .

Display and Design

The display of these two devices is very compact, in particular has a diagonal of three inches, and is not renowned for a very high resolution. The two have resolution QVGA , or what is the same, 240 x 320 pixels. At this size and resolution, the density remains in 133 ppi, it’s nothing fancy but enough for us to see images clearly. Recall that these teams belong to the range of input and therefore have a technical background rather discreet.

Although the design is not exactly the same, it is true that two devices are very similar . The shape of both is very rounded , thus the hand grip is convenient because no edges or sharp corners. The size is very compact and distant by a few tenths, are also very light weighing just over 100 grams. controls also agree, just below the screen have a physical center button serves as the “Home” button to return to the home screen quickly. On either side of this are two capacitive controls key to open menus or backward. On the side is the idle or power button and the volume controls.

Camera and Multimedia

Again there is a tie, in this case in the photographic section. The Samsung Galaxy Neo and Samsung Galaxy Pocket Star are not terminal for most amateur users to take pictures with the phone, in fact equipped with one very basic camera that will allow us to capture quality images too, although it can get us out of any trouble. The camera sensor has two megapixels of resolution and the resulting images have a size of 1,600 x 1,200 pixels , not very large but it will adapt well to the computer screen, not so much for printing. Neither has autofocus and LED flash, if we take quality pictures on these terminalsshould better choose a location and a time of day where there is enough light, thus get better results. In addition to permission to take photos these phones also allow capturing videos, specifically with quality QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) and 15 frames per second rate.

Another function of these terminals is playing audio, video or images, the media profile is not too large as far as formats are concerned, however, are compatible with most common file types so there are no problems. They also have an FM radio tuner integrated and have an option to record any station.

Power, memory and operating system

We begin to see differences in point of power and playing for the   Samsung Galaxy Star This model has a single core processor to a gigahertz, while the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo carries a chip to 850 MHz, is a subtle but worthwhile to consider. The two carry 512 Mb of RAM, to be simple mobiles is more than enough to make operation smooth and seamless.

Had a similar difference to another, the storage capacity. Both have a background of four GB to store all kinds of files, however we can fall short if we keep many photos or install many applications. To avoid that we fill the memory, the two have a memory card slot through which you can insert cards 32Gb MicroSDmaximum.

As we said in the entry, the biggest advantage of these two handsets is that they have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean series. This delivery is one of the latest so we ensures compatibility with all applications of Google Play Store. It also has other advantages such as performance enhancement system Project Butter or virtual assistant Google Now. Like any Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy Neo and Samsung Galaxy Pocket Star also comes with several pre-installed as standard features like   Gtalk, Gmail, YouTube and Google Maps to give some examples. Samsung has included Motion UI interface, a system that allows us to perform some actions with simple gestures. One of the possibilities offered by Motion UI is the ability to mute a call if you put the phone face down on a flat surface like a table. The other option is that we can update the contents by shaking the phone.

Connectivity and autonomy

Connections are the turning point in this comparison and the aspect that most distinguishes the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo and Samsung Galaxy Star The Samsung Galaxy Neo Pocket allows access to mobile networks 3G , but the Samsung Galaxy Star does not have this possibility instead we can access the Internet through the standard GPRS , the trouble is that the speed is much smaller and does not serve as regular access point. To navigate more smoothly with the Samsung Galaxy Star will have to enter a network Wi-Fi system that also includes the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo. The fact that the Samsung Galaxy Neo Pocket 3G connection lead also affects the GPS , this model has integrated antenna while the other does not include this service (logical if we consider that the GPS is used to locate anywhere and the Galaxy Star does not leads mobile connection). Where do agree is on port Bluetooth 4.0 , the audio jack of 3.5 mm and the port MicroUSB . Note that both have dual SIM card slot and allowed to carry two phone lines on the same device. We also have the system Always On so it does not lose any call or notice, you can switch between lines using integrated widget handy.

Finally, there is talk of autonomy, as they are two quite modest mobile they do not need a battery too broad. Specifically rechargeable lead a 1,200 milliamps, enough for us to use the phone for a day without going through the plug, but could be longer if you got used to avoid unnecessary energy consumption, for example disabling the connections that we are not using .

Conclusions

There are few differences between the Samsung Galaxy and Samsung Galaxy Neo Pocket Star, in fact there is only one that is important: the 3G connection. The Samsung Galaxy Neo Pocket access to 3G mobile networks, which means that you can navigate from anywhere, provided there is coverage.The Samsung Galaxy Star does not have this feature and forces us to access a WiFi network to any queries on the network, send a message via WhatsApp or accessing Facebook. Otherwise they are two very similar phones that offer modest benefits but at the same time balanced to the range to which they belong. Best of all is that they have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean , which is more than can boast some ranges mobile superiors who have not yet been updated.
