Mid-range phablet with 4G
Display, Processor and OS
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 LTE sports a 5.25-inch TFT multi touch display with HD resolution (720 x 1,280 pixels) and a pixel density of 280ppi.
For driving its processes, the smartphone is packed with a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor sitting on Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 chipset. It is coupled with Adreno 305 GPU and 1.5GB RAM to ensure smooth and speedy handling of applications. It ships with dated Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS which is a big lowdown.
Camera and Storage
The main camera of the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 LTE captures 8MP stills and comes with support for autofocus, HDR, 4X digital zoom, face detection, continuous shooting, LED flash, geo-tagging and ability to shoot full HD movies at 30fps. At the front, there is a 1.9MP snapper which may push selfie crazy people to go for a different phone.
Battery and Connectivity
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 LTE is fuelled by a 2,600mAh Li-ion battery which promises to provide up to 18 hours of talktime and up to 430 hours of standby time in 2G networks. Moving to the connectivity and networking section, we have features like 4G LTE Cat3 (specific regions), Mobile hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth v4.0, tethering, GLONASS, USB port, OTA sync, Wi-Fi 5GHz, computer sync, GPS/A-GPS and 3G.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 LTE, as the name suggests, is just an LTE version of the Grand 2 whose specs can be easily regarded as outdated in the present market. There are plenty of better equipped smartphones at a much lower price range than this one. The sole area where the phone impresses is the connectivity section. Go for it if you are an ardent fan of the Korean manufacturer.
