3.2 MP camera
The Trend houses a fixed focus 3.2MP camera (without flash support) that can record videos in 640×480 pixels (VGA) resolution. The camera and the video quality looks good considering the specs. You can check the sample images / video at the end. There is no front camera.

Gaming and Entertainment
You cannot install apps on external storage. I downloaded dead trigger and played that in high graphics mode. The game play was smooth initially but later on started lagging. Even in low graphics mode you can feel the lag.

You can play 720p videos in hardware mode using MX player, in software mode the audio / video is out of sync.

Others
Loud speaker output and in call speaker output is loud and clear. 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS worked well. Got the GPS lock within 10 seconds. The handset starts lagging a lot once you install many apps.

1500 mAh battery
As per Samsung on a full charge the battery gives a talktime of up to 8 hours. You can check the gaming video, I played the game for 8 minutes and the battery dropped by 4% (this was with full brightness).

Galaxy Trend Verdict
This dual SIM single core handset gives you the feel of a high end Samsung handset (TouchWiz 4.0 interface) for an affordable price, with some lag of course. The price of under Rs. 8,500 may not be a budget friendly price tag for many considering the hardware. For those who are brand conscious this could be a good option, for others who really don’t care – you can get a better deal for the around the same price.

    Hi Gogi, I have samaung galaxy trend (7392) and bought 15 days back. From day1, the loading of any apps (like, contacts, messages, etc.,) is very very slow. I have not installed any application yet. Is it the problem of this model or only in my phone, Please suggest.

    • Gogi RanaGogi Rana says

      If you are using a micro SD card remove that and see if the speed improves, if yes then there is some issue with your micro SD card.

      • Myth says

        Thank you very much for the response. i do not have micro SD in the mobile. Any other suggestions please?

        • Gogi RanaGogi Rana says

          I also encountered lag on the phone, it is single core so don’t expect much out of it. You can try a factory reset and see if there is slight improvement.

    Hi Gogi its gives tremendous pleasure going through your site. I am a follower of your reviews. Thank you so much for your useful reviews. They are very useful in choosing which cell phone to go for.

    Anyways I came up with a problem to you that I am experiencing on my SAMSUNG GALAXY TREND S7392. The problem is that everything is fine until my battery percentage is up to 15 but when it comes below 15% it suddenly comes to 3 or 4%. And another problem I am facing is my phone suddenly does not work. I mean after using for sometime when I keep it in my pocket locking the device and again wants to use it the display does not turn on. Again I have to remove the battery and restart to switch it on..

    • Gogi RanaGogi Rana says

      Hi first let the battery drain completely, let the phone switch off on its own then fully charger the battery try this for few cycles. As for phone locking it could be some app that you might have installed or some battery issue. Try the step and see if it works otherwise visit service centre and get the battery checked.
