4 Biggest Competitiors
Biggest Rivals of Samsung Galaxy Appeal are:
Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos

Sony Xperia Ion
The call quality of the phone is not that great owing to the constant white noise present in the background. The audio sounded pretty good. Volume, when set at medium, sounds good. The Samsung Galaxy Appeal sports a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7225A single core processor. Those of you who are expecting extremely fast internal speed, Samsung Galaxy appeal will not be satisfactory for you. this phone doesn’t have the fastest data speeds which is offered by the market.
The display comes with 3.2 inches multi-touch capacitive touchscreen.
The 3.2 MP camera is not all that good and lacks flash as well as autofocus. However it is the video quality of the device’s camera which is the real cause of worry. Video quality could have been much better than what it is. The videos recorded by the camera were rather dull when it comes to color and the audio part of the video was hardly recorded. The camera is one of the minus points of the phone.
The handset sports a 1.300 mAh battery which will give you a battery life of seven hours of talktime and about 12 days of standby time. The battery life of Samsung Galaxy Appeal can be called decent if not great.
Price and Availability
The Samsung Galaxy Appeal is available to you at a decent price of $149.99 . Not a high price to pay for a handset which has so much to offer.
When it comes to the good points, Samsung Galaxy Appeal comes with the smartphone features of Android 2.3 gingerbread. The backing is a comfortable one. The phone is not too expensive. Among the bad points, we can count the small size of the screen and the camera which comes without a flash.
All in all, Samsung Galaxy Appeal undoubtedly comes with features you are going to love but there are a number of drawbacks as well. It offers quite a lot keeping in mind the pocket friendly price of the phone but some features could have been better. I would say Samsung has done an excellent job again. I would definitely give this phone 4 star and advice you to go for it.

The battery life of Samsung Galaxy Appeal can be called decent if not great? ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
The battery life is pathetic because it is SO overloaded with BLOATWARE that just sitting w/o using it WiFI, GPS & Mobile data off the battery depletes in one day.
If you use the data sparingly, you will be able to go the day & have to charge it whwn you get home at night.
