With GOSF 2013 going on since the last two days, the time is just right for people looking to score the best deals on smartphones and tablets. But if you’re looking for some more offers available on online retail sites for shopping this weekend, then this weekly feature is meant for you. This time, we have a mix of Samsung’s budget offering Galaxy Grand, Micromax’s Canvas Magnus, and Nokia’s largest WP8 device in India, the Lumia 625.
Samsung’s Galaxy Grand, as the moniker suggests, is a large device thanks to its phablet-like 5-inch screen size (800 x 454 pixels). The device is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor along with a 1GB RAM. Storage wise, it gets a 8GB internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD card up to 32GB. For imaging, it has a 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 2MP front-facing camera.
Additionally, the deal also includes two flip covers for the protection of the smartphone.
With the Canvas Magnus, Micromax is offering a powerful quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz in the budget segment. The smartphone sports a 5-inch display having a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 294 ppi. For storage, the device comes with a 1GB ROM and 4GB ROM with an option to expand it through microSD card. In the camera department, it has a 12MP camera at the back with LED flash and a 2MP camera at the front for video calling.
The Nokia Lumia 625 features a large screen at an affordable price-point. Specifications wise, it has a 4.7-inch IPS-LCD display bearing a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Under the hood, it gets a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor complemented by 512MB RAM. At the back, it has a 5MP camera illuminated by LED flash, while a VGA camera is available at the back.
It was Samsung which popularised the concept of tablets which also serve as a phone with calling functionality, and the Tab 3 carries on the same tradition. The tablet offers a 7-inch display sporting a 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 170 ppi. The Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. In the storage department, the device offers 8GB of onboard memory which can be extended up to 64GB using a microSD card. It also offers 3.2MP primary camera and a 1.3MP secondary camera.
Along with the deal, buyers will also be getting Bluetooth headset.
With a 5.7-inch display and stylus support, Micromax’s Canvas Doodle 2 is a great option for people looking for Samsung’s Galaxy Note like functionality in the mid-tier segment. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor supplemented by 1GB of RAM. In the memory department, it has 16GB of storage, which sadly can’t be expanded as it doesn’t have an expansion slot. For imaging, the phablet offers a 12MP primary camera with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing camera.
