Samsung-Galaxy-Star-TriosWhat is it with everyone in the mobile tech décor nowadays and their inherent desire of ripping off the competition over and over again? I mean, the good ideas I get. But why copy something that clearly doesn’t make sense? Just in the hope it someday will?

It’s pretty much the only logical explanation for Samsung taking the wraps off the Galaxy Star Trios, less than a week after LG introduced the Optimus L1 II Tri. Well, at least Sammy chose a less silly name.

Otherwise, the two look like identical twins separated at birth, with the same outdated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out the box, equally as disappointing single-core 1 GHz chips, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB built-in storage, 2 MP cams and tiny, cringe worthy 320 x 240 pixels resolution displays.

Even on the outside you could easily mistake one for the other, mostly because, well, they’re so ugly you can’t spend much time “admiring” them, or else there’s a serious risk of going blind.

In case you didn’t tell by now, Samsung’s main selling point for the Galaxy Star Trios is its unique (they wish) ability of taking in three SIM cards at once (sounds like the beginning of a bad porn), and the easy swapping between them (still sounds dirty).

Also, the Star Trios is extremely cheap (shall I even go there again?), costing the equivalent of $165 in Brazil. Nowhere else, thank God, at least for the time being.
