Photos can be washed out too, but if you choose your subject carefully you can get a decent enough image even indoors. An FM radio and music player help round the apps list out, and there’s the Samsung Apps shop as well as the Android Market to further boost the applications library.

Samsung Galaxy Apollo

An underwhelming Android, but it's all in there, sort of

Verdict

Apart from being a low-cost Android phone, I struggle to see what the Galaxy Apollo adds to the Samsung line-up. It’s social networking features may well appeal to its target audience of younger users, but it’s not like these functions don’t appear on other Samsung handsets. Still, there is one standout feature of the Galaxy Apollo – on the Orange-branded version at least, it has a silver fascia where Samsung usually opts for black. ®
