Today we are going to review this device which has just been launched in India at a very exciting price of Rs 21,500 only. This smartphone is much similar to Samsung Galaxy Note II, so those who are dreaming to buy Note II can go For this new beauty.

Lets go around with the 360° view of Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos:
The front side of the phone has 5″ inches capacitive display, on the top right you have 2MP camera and along with the earpiece there are Proximity Sensors. Now you all must be thinking that “What is Proximity Sensors?”. Proximity sensors are very much useful for saving the battery life, i.e. when you get a Phone call, and you take the device near to the ear, the proximity sensors automatically sense the object near to it and it shut off the Screen light. This will help you too make the device battery last longer. On the front below side there are 2 feature touch keys and in the middle there is a key for closing all the running applications.
The boundary of Samsung Galaxy Grand is completely Steel and on the Left hand side there is a Volume rocker button for increasing and Decreasing the Volume, on right side there is a Mobile Turn off / screen lock button. On the top there is 3.5mm Jack for Earphones and on below it has a USB charging slot or you can also use it for File transferring using USB cable.
The back panel of the smartphone is self colored textured and is not rough, which you won’t be able to see in the picture. On the back side you will have 8MP camera, LED flash light and speaker.
Battery Review: The battery performance of Samsung Galaxy Grand is 2100 mAh which is much sufficient for huge device like this. Keeping in view the screen size the battery size is enough. What we have tested is, the device can easily run for 1.5 day after a normal use, i.e. Listening music, browsing internet, playing games and stand-by etc.
Display Quality: Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos display size is 5″ inches which is giving brilliant colors output and provides an excellent experience. It also has an excellent viewing angles, i.e. you can see a clear image from any angle.

It has 1.2 GHz processor and latest version popular operating system i.e. Android 4.1.2 Jelly bean. This new OS provides you Google Now feature, which brings the right information before you ask.
Galaxy Grand also has an excellent Sound quality which we have tested just now, the sound is not too loud and neither less, it is optimum for regular use. The inbuilt memory is 8GB out of which user memory available is 3.94 GB rest is occupied by already installed applications. For increasing the memory you can use upto 64 GB Micro SD card, which will be inserted under the battery. That means you need to first shut down the device and then insert the card, there is no Hot swap feature.

You can click clear pictures from both front and rear camera. The front camera is 2 Mp of fixed focus provides good capture, the rear camera clicks and shoots awesome images and video.
