Samsung is known for its desire to get as many smartphones into the market as possible. The Samsung Galaxy Fame, which was announced earlier, is part of that desire, as seen by its positioning as an entry- level smartphone that will cater to the cash-strapped populace looking for a cheaper alternative.
The smartphone is now available on the company’s eStore for Rs 11,120. The Galaxy Fame comes in with the Android Jelly Bean operating system. As noted by a GSM Arena report, the smartphone sports a single-core processor as well as 512MB of RAM, which is a clear step down from most other multi-core smartphones that are available in the market. However, you have to consider the price tag in this respect.
Some of the other features that the phone boasts include a dual-SIM variant as well as a model that supports NFC. There is also a front-facing camera with support for VGA recording. It comes with an on-board memory capacity of 4GB, which can be extended up to 32 GB via microSD cards.

While the Galaxy Fame is a good phone for its price range, it just can’t keep up with the other phones in the market, including the phones that Samsung itself is marketing. In its relentless pursuit to corner the market, it seems like Samsung is bent on plugging every section of the market, with a model for each category in the market demographics.
Be that as it may, there are two things that are going for the Galaxy Fame. The first is its price, which seems affordable for the specifications that the smartphone gives. The other more important point that may well be the saving grace for the phone is the JellyBean operating system that is running the show. As an OS, the JellyBean will give you a decent enough performance, as long as you don’t miss many of the features that more advanced phones offer.
