The Samsung Galaxy Stardust is a smartphone newly available with Tracfone service. (It is also available with Straight Talk) This phone initially appears similar to the LG Optimus Fuel, and especially the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, but it does share some features with the LG Ultimate 2.
Tracfone now has more than ten Android powered smartphones that can be used on their prepaid service. They continue to release new phones which are for use exclusively on their prepaid service, as well as allow more phones for use on the Tracfone BYOP service. For more details on BYOP, follow the link to our page.
At the end of 2014, Tracfone released three new phones with the best specs and features yet, they were the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop, Moto E, and LG Ultimate 2. These phones each had screens larger than 4″, good processors, and other good specifications.
The Galaxy Stardust will run on CDMA towers through Verizon service, which is the same of all of Tracfone’s smartphones at this time. For more about CDMA, and if an Android phone will work for you, visit out CDMA vs GSM Comparison.
But how does the Samsung Galaxy Stardust stack up with Tracfone’s other offerings? We’ll answer this once we review the full list of features and product specifications.
Samsung Galaxy Stardust Features and Specifications
Try not to get the Samsung Galaxy Stardust confused with the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, they are very similar, but looking at the specs we see some differences:
Samsung Galaxy Stardust Feature List
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
- 3G Connectivity through Verizon Towers
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Triple Minutes for Life with minutes split into Talk/Text/Data
- Hands Free Speaker
- Gravity and Tilt/Shake sensor
- Hearing Aid Compatible
- Up to 64GB MicroSD Card Compatible
Samsung Galaxy Stardust Specifications
- Size: 4.77″ x 2.46″ x 0.41″
- 4″ TFT Touchscreen
- 1.2Ghz Dual Core Processor
- 1 GB RAM
- 8 GB Internal Memory
- Weight: 4.1 OZ
- 1500 mAh Battery, 12 Hours Talk Time/ 11 Days Standby
The specifications for the Stardust are fairly consistent with the other phones Tracfone has recently released. One very exciting feature is the 8 GB of internal memory, the most we’ve seen on a phone offered by Tracfone. We will be sure to locate that actual available space, but it looks promising
Now let’s see how the Stardust looks compared with some of the other Android phones from Tracfone.

Samsung Galaxy Stardust Compared to Other Tracfone Smartphones
The main differences between the Stardust and Ace Style are the RAM and Internal Memory. The Stardust has twice the amount of RAM and Internal Memory as the Ace Style, which means it can have more apps running at one time, and have more apps loaded on the phone. We still haven’t seen the Ace Style released, so maybe Tracfone has just skipped it, and gone straight to the slightly better Samsung Galaxy Stardust.
When comparing the Stardust to the LG Ultimate 2, we see that the Ultimate 2 has a larger screen at 4.5″, but a similar processor, RAM, and internal Memory. The Ultimate 2 also has the slightly newer Android 4.4. The LG Ultimate 2 is our current pick for the Best Tracfone Cell Phone, but the Stardust isn’t far off, and may be more desirable for some.
Both the Moto E and Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop also have larger screens, at 4.3″ and 5.0″, but have similar specs on RAM, processor, and camera, and the Stardust even appears to come with more internal memory.
What we can determine from this is that the Samsung Galaxy Stardust isn’t going to be the next big phone for Tracfone users, but it does fit in with the current best offerings, and for those who prefer a smaller screen, it might be a great option.
