Summary: Unit sometimes will charge battery on and off after two weeks of use.... then completely ceased to charge battery. Without charged battery, unit is useless. Unfortunately, I'm out of the country within the 30 day return period and could not send it back to Amazon. Amazon please advise where to send it for repair.
Summary: Right out of the box, the phone was having major problems. It would freeze up sometimes, or restart by itself sometimes even in the middle of a phone call. I finally had to re-install a different version of Android which fixed the issue. Then, after 5 months of very light use, the screen has gone bad in the center. Even though the phone is only 5 months old, Samsung is refusing to honor the one-year warranty.

Let's do the comparison: Pros: - Dual Sim - microSD with up to 64gb - Nice clear screen Cons: - Sluggish; probably not enough RAM, but maybe their version of the code - The included music player has a mind of its own and can be very unresponsive - Phone randomly restarts itself (averaging about...
Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos 19082 - Good value for money
27 May 2014
Excerpt: Well this was my first ever Android phone. I had to buy it because my previous Nokia N8 was stolen which I adored simply because I could swear by its camera quality. However Galaxy Grand did not disappoint me at all. It looks kind of cute, looks exactly like a 5 year old kid in front of Galaxy tab. Holding it gives you a very sleek feel. the phone is so shiny and glossy that it almost slips from your hand.
