Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Priced at $180, Budget Gingerbread Phone
Samsung Galaxy Proclaim is one of those budget phones with Gingerbread, that will do a fine job as your second phone. Also, since it’s part of the Galaxy series from Samsung, it insures some degree of quality through that, right? Here’s what the device looks like:
The Proclaim features a 1 GHz processor, 1GB of internal memory plus an extra 2 GB, since it comes with a microSD card with that capacity. Other features include a 3.5 inch HVGA display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. There’s a 3 megapixel camera at the back, a pretty underwhelming feature if you ask me. WiFi and Bluetooth take care of the connectivity side and there’s also a 1500 mAh battery on board to have fun with. With this capacity, I expect at least one or two days of moderate use from this model.
The price is still affordable and that’s probably the main appeal of the model. However, if you consider that you can actually get a good tablet with Android 4.0 for this money, the handset doesn’t look so appealing. Anyway, if you want a budget phone and don’t want to commit to contracts, this is a good choice.
