Samsung Galaxy Fame review

Get ready young'uns - it's got NFC too

Our Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy Fame is a small, cheap phone aimed at younger users who want to connect to Facebook, and for those users it's fine. It struggles with anything more substantial, though, and the screen and camera are both pretty poor.
