Samsung Experience, Light Weight
I don't own this phone but writing this to tell a few facts about a grand.
First thing I want to ask is how everyone was able to review even without using it.
I am not saying it is a bad phone but please be cautious before buying this phone and read the below facts about this phone that I know which not even Samsung is not saying it.
Display: WVGA resolution. This is the same resolution as on Galaxy S2. But this phone has 5 inches versus 4.3 on S2.
Due to same resolution on large screen the display wont be sharp. Quality will be definitely less compared to 2 year old S2.
This is not Super AMOLED. This phone has just LCD display. Quality of LCD display will be very bad. Under sunlight Super AMOLED is not good but good in indoor usage.
LCD will be worse in both sunlight and indoor usage.
Processor: All Samsung is saying this phone has 1.2 Ghz dual core. In S2 it has its own popular exynos processor.
Grand has broadcomm processor. This is probably the first phone with this processor. I have never seen a phone with broadcomm processor. I am not saying its bad but we don't know until its reviewed.
The reason for using that processor must be cheap price. Otherwise why would Samsung use other companies processor instead of using its own processor.
Two most important specs of any phone is processor and display. These two things are bad compared to 2 year old galaxy s2.
The only reason this phone got attention of people is because of its screen size (5 inches).
So be careful and think a lot before buying.
I am going to rate this phone 2 stars because Samsung is hiding the facts about display and processor.
Hey guys,Even if you are new to the smartphone segment and want to buy a new phone,Dont't buy this one..Just think of all the phones that are available at this time.It has got good looks,good camera,but other than that??Nothing,Plainly nothing!!Just go for Micromax A116 HD.Samsung released this phone only in India just to compete with overgrowing Micromax..Micromax A116 Canvas HD!!Just look at its specs..It has got a cortex A7 1.2 GHZ Processor compared to 1.2Ghz of this one..And about the display,This has got a WVGA display whereas the A116 got a stunning HD display(1280*720).The Canvas HD is also RS15000 only..Micromax is getting better and better..Think twice before buying anything cause the investment is large and you must never regret in future.If you are skeptical,Just go,Google Micromax a116 vs Samsung galaxy grand..You'll come to know..If you find my review useful,Vote it high and make it stay on top so that others too find it :)
I bought this phone a week back.
This one has given me an awesome experience till now.
I used to have a Galaxy Note earlier, and trust me, I feel this is faster and smoother than a Note.
I'm really flabbergasted as to how people write reviews without even using the device. Just don't go by the spec. Its screen spec might LOOK disappointing, but real time experience is not bad at all.
People have even compared this piece of art with a micromax. That itself is a ridiculous one. Someone has written that micromax has a better processor .? Dude, seriously .?
Micromax processor is a 1.2 GHz Quad Core. But it has been built on platform of a Cortex A7, which, even being a 1.2 GHz, will not be able to give a smooth experience.
Whereas, Galaxy Grand has been built on a latest platform with a 1.2 GHz, and hence, should serve the purpose more efficaciously.
And I personally would never tag myself with a Micromax, for now on that is. I have been hearing loads of complaints about the Micromax devices. They remain in the service station for more time than they remain with the customers is what I have heard too.
Its people's personal choice than. For a matter of 6k more, you get a Globally leading brand. I'd reckon, anyone and everyone to buy this phone.
And please, for future commentors, please write a review, only if you have actually used this device. Everybody knows the spec. You don't need to put redundancy here.
In love with my Galaxy Grand. :)
