Galaxy Young sports a 3.2-inch HVGA display with 320x480p resolution and pixel density of close to 176 pixels per inch. Optimus L3-2 too sports a similar 3.2-inch screen but loses points for its low pixel density of 125 ppi and display resolution of 320x240p.


In terms of power, Galaxy Young and Optimus L3-2 stand even as they both pack a single-core processor with same 1GHz CPU speed.

It is to be noted that since both smartphones fall within the low price bracket, they do not feature flash support for the main camera and lack a secondary camera on the front.
