Detailed Review


Samsung’s Galaxy Y Pro Duos is another touch and type Android smartphone from manufacturer. In this price range, it has plenty to offer more than its competitors. The design is unique and simple to operate. The dimensions of this device are 110.8mm, 63.5mm and 11.9 mm in height, width and depth. Its screen size measures 2.6 inches diagonally and is a multi touch display with TFT capacitive touchscreen display type. The phone is all in plastic body material, which feels good and is well textured too. It is handy and easy to carry.


The right side of the device holds a power/lock key but lacks with a dedicated camera key. The left side hold the dedicated volume control key whereas, the 3.5mm earjack is placed on its top. The bottom is left bare with just USB connector. Above the screen of Galaxy Y Pro Duos is an earpiece with VGA front camera, proximity sensor and below the screen are Android Capacitive touch keys for Home, Back, search and Menu with optical trackpad in between.. Below this is a full QWERTY keypad. On its back side is a 3.2 Megapixels camera lens and loudspeaker grill. The phone is light in weight of just 112.3 gm. The Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos is a strong build phone that fits best in your hand.

Interface/Operating System:

The good part of this phone is that it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. This operating system suits this phone the best and the spontaneous Touch Wiz interface works great and is easy to access. But, multitasking and swapping applications is not easy because of it slow processor.


Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos in this price range offers multiple features and access to various applications. ThinkFree handles all your Office documents, including PDFs, for simple, productive viewing and editing. It comes in built with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. which gives you access to stay in touch with multiple features like multimedia content sharing, group chats and animated images. FM stereo with RDS also exist in Galaxy Y Pro Duos that updates you with latest news and many FM stations. Multitasking and swapping applications is not easy because of it slower RAM and weak processor. The screen resolution is low and it has no adobe flash support. The phone comes with VGA secondary camera but, that cannot be complained in this price range. For connectivity it has a Bluetooth BT 3.0, USB for mass storage and PC connection, Android Internet HTML Browser, Wi-Fi and aGPS. It comes with many basic features like; calendar, organizer, calculator, etc. all are in-built. Overall, the phone is worth money but lacks with few advancements that could have made it the best in this price range.


This is probably the not so good section of Galaxy Y Pro Duos. It comes with a normal 3.2 megapixels main camera and VGA front camera. The main camera is lacking with auto focus and LED flash. But, it lacks with a dedicated camera key. We were expecting a minimum of 5 megapixels camera for this device as many of the devices in this price range offers it. But, the image quality from its 3.2 megapixels camera is good but with proper lighting and good hand. And for video callers it offers a VGA front camera. You can share the images clicked to Social networking Sites straightaway and that is the good thing about this phone.



For the long lasting and never ending experience, the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos comes with a 1350 mAh standard Li-Ion battery. When tested, the battery performed good results. The Talk Time it delivered was up to 18 hours on 2G and up to 6.5 hours on 3G. Web browsing, multitasking, swapping applications and downloading discharges the battery fast, as this is case with many other devices as well. The stand by time it delivers is up to 650 hours on 2G and up to 550 hours on 3G. Overall performance of the battery is good and it takes less time to get charge.


It gives you 160 MB inbuilt memory space which can be expanded to 32 GB using a micro SD card. It has a average 850 MHz processor with slower 384 MB RAM. The micro SD card space is under the back cover of the phone.


Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos is a good mid range smartphone with touch and type facility and lot many exiting features. The good part of this phone is its dual camera. It lacks with camera’s dedicated key, poor 3.2 megapixels camera and slow processor. The design of this phone is good and is well constructed too.

we give this phone 3.5 star rating.
