Samsung is on a killing spree, and the weapon it is using is Galaxy series phones. Samsung is the biggest smartphone giant in India and across the globe and it seems that this giant is never going to stop. Samsung has launched a phone that was announced a long time ago. Any guesses? Well, it’s Samsung Galaxy Premier, Samsung Galaxy Premier’s features were announced back in November 2012 but the launch of the phone was put on hold by the Samsung team. Samsung Galaxy Premier is phone that is stuffed with features, features that are almost equivalent to Samsung’s flagship smartphone – Samsung Galaxy S 3. Samsung Galaxy Premier will be available in India by 2nd week of February, as per the rumors. Here is a detailed review of the features that Samsung Galaxy Premier offers to its users.
Samsung Galaxy Premier has got Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS. Jelly Bean OS is currently the latest version of Android OS series. Google Play Store, the official market for Android apps, is may be one of the largest collection of apps available for downloading. Google Play store has got well over 700,000 apps. With so many apps I am sure you won’t run out of choices. There are more than 50,000 games to choose from on Google Play Store, plus maximum of them are completely free and exciting.
Samsung Galaxy Premier has got a Dual Core 1.5GHz processor with TI OMAP 4470 chipset and PowerVR SGX544 GPU. Processor quality of Samsung Galaxy Premier is actually quite brilliant. I really don’t think that it’s going to score below the quad core processors from Micromax A116 HD because of its super powerful architecture in the benchmark tests. Samsung Galaxy Premier stands nowhere when we compare it with the quad core 1.4GHz processor of Galaxy S 3.
Samsung Galaxy Premier comes in two variants, one with 8GB of internal memory and the second with 16GB of internal memory. No matter which variant you choose, you can always expand your memory to 32GB via microSD card. Coming on to the RAM, Samsung Galaxy Premier has got 1GB of RAM. Even Galaxy S 3 has got 1GB of RAM but it’s expandable memory size is up to 64GB.
Samsung Galaxy Premier has got an 8MP primary camera with features like autofocus and LED flash. It has even got a 1.9MP secondary camera. If you are a video-making freak, then you can surely buy this phone because this phone allows you to record full HD videos at the speed of 30fps. Concluding the camera quality section, I must say that Samsung Galaxy Premier is a good phone camera quality wise but it could have been a bit better if Samsung would have not mind installing a dual LED flash instead of just single LED flash.
Samsung Galaxy Premier has got a 4.65inch display screen with 316ppi of pixel density. 134.2 x 68 x 9 mm are the dimensions of this phone which makes this phone as sleek as the new launched Blackberry Z10. This phone has got Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with 16M of colors and coming to the screen resolution, its screen resolution is 720 x 1280 pixels. It even supports multitouch but there is no protection for the screen.
Samsung Galaxy Premier supports almost all kind of data connectivity features like EDGE, GPRS, 4G (depends upon your region), Bluetooth v4.0, HSDPA, HSUPA, LTE, CAT3, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Hotspot, NFC, microUSB v2.0 etc. The data connectivity features of Samsung Galaxy Premier are quite premium.
All in all, Samsung Galaxy Premier is a good phone with some really powerful features. Considering it’s expected market price of Rs.30,000 in India, it seems like a good choice for me. But just in case you want to buy something more powerful, I would suggest you to get some more money and buy the Galaxy S 3.
