Duos 3 launched with reduced features then duos 2. Dear Samsung Indian people are not fool.nRAM reduced 512 MB From 768 MB. Proximity sensor removed so every time u have to double tap on screen to screen on and cut the call. Screen viewing angles are pathetic then Duos 2. nCheap Plastic casing etc.
I thought that successors were upgraded models. Turns out I was wrong. RAM has been reduced to 512 MB (Duos 2 had 717 MB) and the processor is just 1 GHz (Duos 2 had 1.2 GHz). Add Samsung bloatware to the plate and you have a phone that a tortoise can outrun. Only advantage is the KitKat OS but I have seen people change the launcher to Nova irrespective of the TouchWiz version available because they just cannot stand the cartoony offerings of Samsung. I wont say any more. You decide for yourself... ;)
I bought this phone for Rs 7500 from local retailer on 26th sep, 2014. My father is using S duos 2 for 7 months, so i decided to buy this phone as the performance of s duos 2 is just great. When i unpacked it getting the first shock, sensor is missing.. After switch on the mobile i got shock shock shock..... poor built quality, bad camera, poor sound. Heart broken.... Better to spend on Motorola or Nokia... Dont buy this crap....
Less RAM,Processor speed. Samsung is cheating Indian People with a phone with less features than the previous version. Applications are not running properly.
Samsung thinks that they can have a bad hardware and charge a premium like Apple. But unfortunately, your hardware is horrible and touchwiz is like BASIC from 1990's. So I don't know why you are charging a premium. nnYou would be better off buying a Moto E/Redmi/Android One and donate the rest to charity.
