The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 is warping across the galaxy to Vodafone this week, giving you a 4G option that hopefully won’t beam all the cash out of your wallet.
The Galaxy Express — apart from sounding like a 1980s Saturday morning cartoon — is a mid-range 4G Android phone. It sports a 4.5-inch screen with a 1.7GHz dual core processor and 1.5GB RAM underneath.
The software is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which isn’t as up-to-date as we’d like from a new phone — Android 4.4 is just around the corner — but then this is a more wallet-friendly option than cutting-edge phones.
Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with flash and a low-resolution camera on the front for video chat, with 8GB of storage for your snaps, apps, music and movies. It also packs Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
The Galaxy Express 2 LTE UK release date is tomorrow, 23 October, only from Vodafone. It comes in white or blue colours; the blue is just for Vodafone customers but the white version will be available from other networks “at a later date.”
Vodafone offers extra-fast 4G LTE data for mobile phones, tablets and dongles in Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Nottingham and Sheffield, with Glasgow scheduled to be switched on this week. If you sign up this month, Vodafone will give you an extra 4GB of data each month.
