T-Mobile's little Samsung Galaxy Light

With a 4-inch screen, the Samsung Galaxy Light is one of the most pocket-friendly phones we've seen in a long time. Samsung's reliable take on Android 4.2 also makes this $240 off-contract phone one of T-Mobile's best Android deals.

Phone design

Its rounded corners, glossy finish, and oblong Home button are fairly cookie-cutter, signaling that this is absolutely a Samsung device.

Camera action

The 5-megapixel camera takes decent but not inspiring photos. It's helped by autofocus and an LED flash.

Black or brown?

It's hard to tell, but if you catch the light just so, you can see that the Galaxy Light is a deep, dark brown.

One last look

Inside, the Galaxy Light has a quad-core processor and 8GB of storage, and will hold up to 64GB more behind the back cover.
