We’ve heard rumblings about the Samsung Galaxy Stellar for a little while now but some new information about pricing has been revealed. As you can see in the picture above, the Stellar is said to come in at $99 on a two-year contract or $499 at full retail price. That seems to indicate a mid-range phone and judging by the “Starter Mode” feature that’s preloaded, that could easily be true. The document also mentions a compact design but by far the most interesting thing contained is that it mentions Amazon Apps instead of the Google Play Store. This would be the first time that a mainstream manufacturer has sold a phone that’s preloaded with the Amazon Appstore instead of the Google Play Store. An interesting decision for sure and quite possibly a bad one when you look at the much smaller size of the Amazon Appstore. Feel free to leave any thoughts or questions in the comments below about this.
If a phone only has the Amazon Appstore and no access to the Google Play Store, I wouldnt buy it. Amazon is way too limited - Youre better off having access to both. wonder if this is part of Amazons big press conference coming up. I also dont like that Samsung is adding the name Galaxy to all its handsets. I think some customers who arent tech experts get confused and swindled. Even the buggy Exhibit 2 was now changed to the Galaxy Exhibit. People hear that Galaxy is the best Android phone & they may jump on the phone which ends up being garbage
