The Galaxy Stellar isn’t a bad phone, but it isn’t a great one, either. It’s pretty much exactly what it looks like: a very low-end phone designed to be free with a new contract.  It has good performance, and a decent if unremarkable screen. So it might suit some people well.

Samsung Galaxy StellarBut frankly, a tiny investment will net you a vastly better device. With online retailers currently offering options like the Motorola Droid RAZR M available from $50, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus from $60, I have a hard time seeing to whom I could recommend the Stellar to.

It’s a decent starter device, but as the user grows into more serious use, it’ll start to feel increasingly limiting. And by the end of a two-year contract, it’ll be an antique.


  • Free with new contract
  • Fast processor
  • Good battery life


  • Sharply limited specs
  • Extreme bloatware

Bottom Line:

A very entry-level smartphone that cuts a few too many corners to be worth the little bit of savings it offers.
