Samsung releases too many models in a year, that it’s pretty hard to keep track of all the Samsung devices. Moreover, all the devices under Galaxy brand share the similar design, which makes it even harder to distinguish between different models. However, the devices are solidly built and the main boost-up is that Samsung is trustworthy and releases updates in a regular fashion (more or less). Due to the market conditions, Samsung is forced to release budget smartphones in order to defend the No.1 position and one such device is the Galaxy Avant.
The Samsung Galaxy Avant is a new phone being sold by T-Mobile and is lies in the $200–$300 price range on the off-contract basis. The Galaxy Avant hosts a 4.5-inch display with a qHD resolution, run by a Snapdragon 400 Quad core processor and coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM, we think that the device is great value for money from a popular brand like Samsung. The device is shipped with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and may soon receive the 4.4.4 update if not the Android L update any time soon.
