Optus have added another low-end phone to their pre-paid line, adding the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 for $99.
The Galaxy Young 2, being an entry level device, isn’t going to be winning any awards in the design or specs categories. But it is a Samsung phone, which means it’s generally reliable and unlike some other manufacturers phones, could conceivably see an update to its operating system at some point in its life. It’s not a bad looking phone, mainly in keeping with Samsungs design sensibilities, although it’s no Galaxy Alpha in terms of looks, it’s definitely functional.
The list of specs for the Galaxy Young 2 include:
Given that Vodafone and Huawei, this week announced the Ascend Y550 for the same $99 price but with 4G capabilities, this could be a hard sell at the same price point. That said, if you’re after a relative cheap device that won’t break the bank or after a basic smartphone to start out with, then you may want to have a look at the Samsung Galaxy Young 2 either at your local Optus store or online for $99.
