You get much more than you pay for with the Samsung Galaxy Stellar, an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone that comes free on Verizon with a new two-year service agreement.
The Stellar has a nice 4-inch screen, but one of my favorite convenience features is the captive menu button beneath it. That's the icon of the three stacked dots.
There's a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, which is a nice touch for a free phone.
A 3.2-megapixel camera is on the back. The resolution isn't at the top of the scale, but the photo quality is quite good for outdoor shots in bright lighting.
Its 4GB of internal storage gets a boost with an expansion slot amenable to 32GB extra.
The Stellar is thicker than today's svelte phones, very plasticky, and glossy.
The Stellar has a slight peak of a chin at the bottom, reminiscent of the Samsung Droid Charge, also for Verizon.
The Galaxy Stellar is flash-free, so we took this picture of our standard studio shot with bright lights. The focus is softer, but even, though the background looks grayer than it actually is.
