I am pretty much excited while writing this review because this is the very first android smartphone i have and thus i explored all the possibilities from which i can test power configured within. I am really satisfied with the experience i had with my Samsung galaxy grand and the features it is sporting.
Samsung is providing this Smart gadget galaxy duos at a fair price of 21,500/- INR but you will get this phone around 20,500/- INR in the market easily. Though Micromax Canvas HD has got the similar specs and some even better than the Samsung one but the brand trust will what matter here. It will still take a long time for Micromax to be in the wishlist where some big brands are already present.
Moving on to the review part.
Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos is a phablet sporting a 5 inch screen and bearing the same design as their flagship model Galaxy S3. Build quality is solid and after a decent use and sometimes the rough ones too this device never gave me a noticeable heating issue.
Perfomance & Battery Life.
This device is power packed with dual core processors and 2000 mAh battery which are decent enough for the daily purpose use. I didn’t face any glitch while playing Real Football 2013 which was a 0.95 gb game. Though battery backup is not more than 12 to 13hrs of continuous use but as a smartphone point of view i think its pretty well. The processor might not be an issue at present but may be in upcoming future when it will be just not sufficient.[alert style=”red”] Android v4.2.2 update is finally out.

Display & Screen Type
Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos doesn’t have a scratch resistant gorilla glass pretty strange for a smartphone at this price. IT also lacks the full Hd resolution of the display but that will not be so much noticeable and the display if fair enough to enjoy your movies.

Camera & Sound Quality
Samsung Grand duos is boarding a 8 MegaPixel rear and a 2 MegaPixel front camera which allows you take your self portrait. Picture quality is really nice and even low light clicks are having the decent quality. Sound quality is also very good and will not be a pain in your ears at full sound too. Also comes with the earphone which will further give you many equalizer options to play as your mood.
Best thing about this device is that it bears almost all the motion and gestures present in Galaxy S3 and a larger screen than S3(making it comparable to note 2) and even the smart stay future. So this device can be said as the combo of galaxy Note2 and Galaxy S3. It also supports multi tasking and other cool features satisfying its tagline “SmartPhone Experience Redefined”.
A device to go for if you really want a good smartphone experience but cannot spend or go for devices like S III or S IV. If brand does not matter you a lot then go for Micromax Canvas HD as this will be cost you a little less for the same configurations.
