Samsung pioneered the trend of a new breed of devices, now more commonly known as 'phablets', smartphones that are (almost) nearing tablets in size. After the company's successful Galaxy Note device, many followed suit including homegrown manufacturers like Micromax and Karbonn who are offering devices in the under-15k, and even under 10K price point.To compete with these, Samsung has launched the Galaxy Grand Duos, though it has been priced at Rs. 21,500. Is it the 'Samsung' brand value or does the device really live up to user expectations? We take a look.

  • Superb phone,UI taking the blow
    Anita Bisht (May 2, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The build quality of phone is very good, chrome line running along the phone and the plastic used is also of good quality.The only thing I don't like about the phone is the UI. Touchwiz UI gives good features but is also packed with some useless features and app which take a toll on its RAM and the internal storage. Gpu and the processor of the phone is snappy but after the update of android 4.2.2 the phone becomes a bit slow. The star I have deduced is only for laggy UI but the phone is stunner and isa good package in all.

  • Note in size, but not overly impressive.
    Aayush Agarwal (May 22, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    20 k range phone from Samsung for people who like larger screens. However the pic quality is low-res due to stretching of pixels. There's a 1.2GHz dual-core processer with 1GB of RAM which i would say is very average for this price. The looks and design is same as for any other Samsung device. Not great but could've been more successful at a cheaper price.

  • Nightmarish stuff!
    Anik Biswas (Feb 27, 2021) on Gadgets 360
    My dad used this phone from 2013-2015. It was an absolute disastrous experience even from a 2013 perspective. Initially it was working pretty well but then after almost 7-8 months....... Constantly hanging and no improvement even after software updates or resetting of phone. Nightmare those days were ufff! You could not even play the simplest of the games like "subway surfer" or "Temple run 2" in them.

  • The Next Big Thing!!!
    Raghav Saxena (Feb 5, 2019) on Flipkart
    The name says all about this Phone. Its the best mobile in the Price segment & features. Samsung delivered what it is known for. Bought this mobile few days back & its working absolutely fine. Screen size is amazing and get fit in pocket. Inbuilt memory is 8 GB and if its not enough it can be expanded upto 64 GB and last Multi Window function.... I am falling in love with GRAND when ever I pick it up in my hands.

  • Value for money smartphone and excellent delivery service from Flipkart...!!!
    Oulaganadane Jivarattiname (Feb 5, 2019) on Flipkart
    I ordered my phone on Flipkart last saturday morning and got it delivered at home on monday morning by 10 am itself. It was a big surprise for me for such a quick delivery by Flipkart with a good packing. About the Grand, it is a good one worth the money paid. I bought the metallic blue color and the freebies are worth. Two things I want to tell - one is the 8GB internal memory which is not per the spec - only 4GB available for our use. Second one I got a white color headphone set for a metallic blue color phone which is little contrasting. Working of the Grand is found excellent and the 5" display is magnificent.

  • One Week later!
    Abhijith B (Feb 5, 2019) on Flipkart
    The Samsung Galaxy Grand has the standard Samsung Galaxy series look and feel. It looks very similar to the Galaxy S3 with round edges and a smooth and silent finish. But once you have it in your hand you will feel the difference the grand is slightly heavier and hasn't got the premium look of the metallic case of the S3. First time I saw it it looked very much like a S3 with the Touch Wiz user interface and the default wallpaper make it even a better S3 clone. It is very clear that the Galaxy Grand is a smartphone targeted towards the general audience who wishes to have a phone with the latest Android version and decent graphics and processing to support multiple apps. If we keep the point aside that we shouldn't expect an S3 clone for half its price and compare the specs and features of these devices, then the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a much better hardware configuration, it is available in more in-built storage variants like 16, 32 and 64 GB unlike the Galaxy Grand which has an in-built storage of 8 GB only BUT the grand is superb value for money and offers some ultra cool features like S-Voice, Split Screen, Popup Video play, Smart Stay and gesture features as on the high-end smartphones. By these list of features and the price tag, I say Samsung has another winner in its portfolio!
