This is a very nice mobile and this is a perfect mobile for me as a music lover , nwhite color mobile gives a nice rich look than blue or orange coloured mobile , nwifi ,3g and gprs has a nice speed in surfing or downloading , nNo other samsung mobile gives nice audio experience than this mobile as it contains SRS Surround Sound, SoundAlive Solution , ncamera is very nice , audio through speaker is loud with clarity ,nbattery backup is nice and better than y duos in this price range ,nTouch is very nice and it supports temple run game ,nThe only negative is its screen it is 3.0 inches and 320*240 pixels .

i bought this mobile after much waiting. it was announced in the first week of october. but the news of such a phone arriving the market came even before that. but it became available in india only in the first week of december. i was happy when it arrived the market at last, but only to be disappointed on purchasing it. the video support is very very poor. let me tell why i am unhappy.n1.the music breaks while playing. there are small pauses occuring two or more times in a single song itself. i tried different memory cards and different songs to make sure that it is not the problem of the memory card or song.took it to service centre. they opened the phone and gave back asking me to come again later. well, each time it is a waste of four or five hours. n2.the earphone audio quality is okay. but when the button available in the earphone mic is pressed while the phone is ringing for incoming calls, the call does not get connected. again the problem is not with the earphone. i tried different earphones at the service centre but no use. the service centre technician did something on the earphone socket and then it was okay. but only for a day.n3.worst of all, it does not play stereo at times. all songs are played in the mono mode or they reproduced through the earphone in that way. most annoying. all the music settings like equalizer etc becomes a mockery when the music is played mono. nnMY HUMBLE OPINION IS THAT THIS PHONE IS NOT WORTH THIS PRICE. BECAUSE WE DO NOT TOLERATE SUCH TROUBLES IN A PHONE PRICED EVEN TEN PERCENT OF ITS PRICE.
This phone is just a hype. Main difference is with respect to Music and Dual SIM feature both are sub standard.nn1) This phone is not actually Dual SIM active. Dual SIM standby/active should handle call in a SIM when the other SIM is on a call which is not happening in this model, same for samsung Y-duos-lite 5302. You have to enable call forwarding which is operator dependent and comes with a price. nn2) Even though its a music phone, the package sans a good in-ear earphone rather it is shipped with a normal earphone which is quite average. Even when I plugged a in-ear earphone, the output was average. nn3) Also songs played from sd card drops intermittently, i checked with other SD cards and also with software update. This phone even though touted as 'music duos' is actually bad in both parameters. Looks like a manfacturing defect.nn4) Packing doesn't have user manual, one needs to download it from net, which should be avoided. nnOverall its a OK phone. Good for 1st time Android users, you will get android 4 for this price. if you are used to SONY / Nokia sound quality, don't buy this phone. other than android OS, this phone is a dumb. Not worth the price.
