Samsung forays into the dual-sim android smartphone with Galaxy Y Duos. Samsung has tasted tremendous success with the Galaxy Y - an android smartphone that allowed common man to enjoy the android+touchscreen experience. Now Samsung is adds the power of dual-sim to the interactive Android OS thru the new Galaxy Y Duos device. Expected at around 9,000 rupees price point, this is one of the most anticipated dual-sim android smartphone in India. The new Samsung Galaxy Y DUOS adopted almost all the features from its predecessor model Galaxy Y. The noticeable changes between these models were a slightly improved screen, 3.2Megapixel camera instead of 2MP camera, improved battery and the dual-sim slot. Apart from these, both the devices have common features. Samsung Galaxy Y Duos is a hybrid dual-sim mobile with an erogonomical design. The device offers an rich smartphone experience with in the budget.

This version is more or less similar to that of its predecessor(Galaxy Y). It has increased its RAM for better performance but uses the same 832 Mhz processor. But, remember that it has to handle two sims on standby, so I won't expect much higher performance.nnPros: n1. 3.14 inch screen.n2. 3.15Mp Camera.nnCons:nn1. No camera flash.n2. Dual standby sim, not dual active.
I personally do not see anything special about this phone. Quite disappointing product from Samsung. It has :nn1. Dual SIM which is NOT ACTIVE...... quite useless.n2. No Front Facing Camera... so no Video call.n3. No LED Flash ...... comes in quite handy.nn4. Only 0.14 inch bigger screen size than Samsung Galaxy Y with same resolution.n5. Only 100 mAh more battery power..... but also 2 SIM.nnIf it does not give at least one of the features mentioned above from point 1-3, then what is the point spending about Rs. 1600 more for this phone. There is hardly any substantial difference between Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Duos other than the price. nnRather buy Samsung Galaxy Y (which comes in at least 2 colours and 3 different coloured back covers and lots of accessories) than Galaxy Duos.
