Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro Review
5 August 2013
Summary: It is difficult to recommend the Galaxy Grand Quattro at its price, especially since you have devices such as the Tegra 3-powered Xolo Play T1000 and the plethora of MediaTek MT6589-powered quad-core smartphones available in the market around the Rs. 15,000 price point. If however you are a Samsung loyalist, then you can consider purchasing this device.
Pros: Smooth interface, Slew of Samsung preloaded apps
Cons: Lacklustre display, Better performing smartphones available at the same price, Runs on the older Android 4.1
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Grand is priced at Rs. 21,500, which makes it a very good buy, not only because of its dual-SIM feature but because of its overall performance and functionality. The Grand offers much better value as compared to the HTC Desire SV and is by far the best all-rounder you can buy right now at this price point. The low resolution screen and the fact that it’s a bit heavy and chunky are the only things going against it, but they are in no way deal-breakers.
Summary: It is hard to recommend the Galaxy Grand Duos for the price you pay. You have the Micromax Canvas HD A116 which as better specifications that the Galaxy Grand Duos at a cheaper price. On the other hand, with the Grand Duos, you not only get a slew of Samsung apps such as multi-window, Smart Stay and more, but also better after sales service. Not to mention the TouchWiz UI. The Canvas HD has a better display than the Grand Duos.
Pros: Good performance, Large suite of Samsung content, Good camera, Solid build
Cons: Better phones available for cheaper price, Display has a yellow tinge to it
Conclusion: Going by the sheer screen size of the Galaxy Grand, Samsung is obviously looking to cater to a crowd that wants the most recent trend in smartphones. The catch is that it's a certain set of users that would love the extra real estate but not pay a premium price. Now, throw a dual-SIM into the mix and you end up with a target audience that will be hard-pressed to find something better than the Grand. But... Not paying a flagship price entails compromise.
Pros: Quad-band GSM (SIM 1 & SIM 2) and 3G (SIM 1 only) support, Dual SIM stand-by, 21.1 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support (SIM 1 only), 5.0" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution, Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX, 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8MP autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, image stabilization, 2MP secondary camera, 1080p HD video recording at 30...
Cons: The five-inch diagonal stretches the WVGA resolution really thin, Middling screen contrast and overall quality, Poor low-light video recording, No dedicated camera key
Conclusion: We thought we'll be throwing up as soon as we see 480x800 WVGA resolution on a 5” screen, but in reality it is pretty usable for everyday tasks. The rest of the specs are adequate as we have a decent dual-core processor, a well-performing 8 MP camera, and the ability to add storage via the microSD card slot. Thus if you have been longing for a huge screen phone that manages two SIM cards at once, it is not that you'll have many alternatives to the Grand DUOS anyway.
Pros: Dual SIM device with two-source voice and data usage, Good pictures and video
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Grand is certainly the best phone in this price range and segment. It offers long list of in-built features/applications that exist in all latest Android phones. The big 4 inch screen and TFT capacitive touchscreen is amazing and offers great display. The powerful RAM and processor gives hassle free browsing experience.
Pros: Grand is a good phone in Dual sim functionality and its Android 4.1 operating system, Dual CMOS camera.
Cons: Its screen resolution and display can be a reason to avoid. It lacks with a dedicated camera key as well.
Conclusion: Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos I9082 is a good buying option for every age-group not only in terms of dual SIM feature, but also for its impressive all-round performance and functionality. As compared to HTC Desire SV, it is a better value product in this price range with good build-quality and loads of entertaining features.
Summary: Появившийся в английском языке термин phablet (от объединения слов phone и tablet – «телефон» и «планшет») плотно вошел в обиход техногиков, желающих получить все в одном единственном устройстве. Планшеты редко используются для звонков из-за своих крупных габаритов, а также по той причине, что в большинстве из них нет GSM-модуля. А на смартфоне не так удобно бродить по Интернету и читать – хочется большей диагонали.
Excerpt: Den nye Samsung Galaxy Grand I9082 hører til blandt de hidtil bedste dual-SIM mobiltelefoner på markedet. Der har desværre været en tendens til at dual-SIM mobilerne altid halter et skridt eller to efter de deciderede topmodeller, men med Galaxy Grand er vi nede på et halvt skridt.
