Samsung Galaxy Grand Review - Big Screen Budget Smartphone
23 July 2013
Excerpt: Released around the time when Samsung was building up the hype for their Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Grand is an entry-level to mid-range smartphone with a relatively large 5-inch screen.
Summary: The Samsung GALAXY Grand sits in that segment that caters towards people looking for large-screen smartphones, but not exactly planning to fork the cash for it. Look at it in that sense, it’s easy to dismiss the Grand as something of a dumbed-down entry, but you’ll be surprised at what this more...
Pros: Great performances, Dual-SIM support, Packed with features
Cons: Lower-res screen, Battery life could be better
Summary: Except for the processor and the internal memory, there Galaxy Neo holds no improvement over its predecessor, the Galaxy Grand. So If these are things you need in a phone then the Grand Neo is the right and cheaper choice.
Pros: Android software, fast processor, practical size, dual-SIM feature, 16GB internal memory and a reasonable price.
Summary: Not long after getting our hands on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, we were given the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Grand (Which we saw at the Samsung Forum in Jakarta a few weeks back) to play around with.
Excerpt: The Rs. 20,000 price point can be considered ideal for those that not only want a good smartphone but also don’t want the label “budget” attached to their device. For Rs. 20k users have access to quite a few good smartphones, such as the LG Optimus L9, HTC Desire SV, Sony Xperia P and more.
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.
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, ...
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...
Pros: Dual SIM device with two-source voice and data usage, Good pictures and video
Summary: Samsung went out to make an immediate younger sibling to Samsung Galaxy Grand which released recently in April 2013. It is called the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro or simply the Samsung Galaxy Win.
