Why Samsung Launched This Phone
Samsung might have launched this phone to compete with other phones in the mid range having quad core processors and 1 GB RAM.However we can’t say about the build and hardware quality of other android phones in this range,but Samsung is known to produce android smart phones with good and reliable hardware.So this phone would be better than others in case of hardware reliability.
Samsung Galaxy Win Specifications
1.Display : Samsung galaxy win has a 4.7 inch LCD capacitive touch screen with 400x800 pixels resolution and 199 ppi.It doesn’t have a super AMOLED screen.Its screen matches the Samsung galaxy grand whose display is normal LCD with 16M colors display.So picture won’t be as much sharp as in a super AMOLED screen.But still you can play HD videos on galaxy win.
2.Processor /CPU : Samsung galaxy win has a 1.2 GHz quad core processor.This seems some excellent piece of deal but the quad core processor of galaxy win is based on cortex-A5 qualcomm MSM8625Q snapdragon chipset.Qualcomm snapdragon has grown older,so performance of this 1.2 GHz quad core processor is not the same as of galaxy S3 or other high end quad core android smart phones.The cortex A5 processor has only L1 cache of 4-64 KB while the cortex A9 processor has L1 and L2 cache.L1 cache of 32 kiB and L2 cache of upto 8 MB.So the cortex A5 is not comparable to cortex A9 in speed and performance.
3.Android OS Version : The galaxy win comes with android 4.1.2 jellybean out of the box.So you don’t need to upgrade it to android 4.1.There are some new features like Smart Alert, Easy Mode and Samsung’s Motion UX gesture control system.
4.Camera : It has a 5 MP camera with a LED flash.It can record HD videos at 720p at 15 fps and play 1080p videos at 30 fps.The 5 MP camera can be a little disappointing for a 4.7 inch screen.The front camera is VGA.
5.RAM & Storage : The galaxy win has got 1 GB RAM and internal storage is 8 GB.The storage space available for installing android apps is 5 GB approx.the storage can be expanded to 32 GB via micro sd card.1 GB RAM is enough for gaming with a quad core processor.
6.GPU : Galaxy win has adreno 203 GPU which is just an improvement of adreno 200.So gaming on galaxy win may not be very satisfying.The GPU could have been better like MALI 400MP.
