Review Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 GT-S7582 Smartphone
6 May 2014
Summary: Dual-SIM Galaxy. A 4-inch smartphone featuring two SIM card slots for an official budget price of 159 Euros (~$221): Curtain up for Samsung's Galaxy S Duos 2 GT-S7582. As the report reveals, the smartphone also gives a convincing practical performance.
Pros: Build quality, Easy operation owing to TouchWiz interface, Two SIM card slots, 5 MP camera shoots decent pictures, Current games run smoothly, Very low temperature development, Long battery runtimes, The Galaxy S Duos 2 GT-S7582 enables high flexibility in telephony. Buyers looking for a smartphone that can neatly separate business and private contacts will find this in Samsung's phone.
Cons: Only Android 4.2.2, Only 2 GB of internal storage available, Screen's low resolution, Webcam's VGA quality, Limited performance reserves for future games and apps, A screen with a somewhat higher resolution. Besides that, we missed a more accurate GPS sensor - the integrated module is sometimes quite off route.
Summary: Two in one. And yet another device in the midrange sector that sports unremarkable hardware. However, there is one feature which is being installed in an increasing number of smartphones: "Dual SIM" are the keywords for the Samsung Galaxy S DUOS' most striking attribute.
Pros: Dual SIM Function, Good workmanship, Android 4.0.4, Good screen (brightness, colors), Compact size, Pleasant to hold, The dual SIM technology is well-implemented in the software and is reliable.
Cons: Weak SoC (system-on-a-chip), Little working memory, Does not render HD content, No brightness sensor, Weak front-facing camera, The smartphone could do with much stronger hardware.
Conclusion: The second SIM slot adds an extra dimension to the Samsung Galaxy S Duos, which will only be relevant to a limited set of users, and that's what makes it a lot harder to properly judge. If you look at it as a regular smartphone, it has neither the specs nor the real-life performance the price tag implies. Dual-cores can actually be had for less, so the Galaxy S Duos will always be struggling to keep up in that race.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support, Dual Mini-SIM slots, 4" 16M-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen 480x800 pixels resolution, 1 GHz ARM Cortex A5 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A chipset; 768MB of RAM available to the user, Android OS v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with TouchWiz 4.0 UI customization, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash; geotagging, smile detection, Front-facing VGA camera, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD slot, W...
Cons: Video recording maxes out at VGA@30fps, No shutter key, No ambient light sensor, No DivX/Xvid video support out of the box, Retail package is as basic as it gets
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S Duos is first and foremost a dual-SIM Android device, and should be judged as one. Let’s make it clear - if dual-SIM is not a must for you, there are much cheaper and better options than the S Duos. In the dual-SIM world, its closest rivals are the HTC Desire V coming at virtually the same price and the more affordable Acer Liquid Gallant Duo .
Pros: Dual-SIM functionality well implemented, ICS runs fairly smoothly
Cons: Plastic on it feels very cheap, Single-core processor is dated, No 720p video recording
Samsung Galaxy S DUOS – the phone of choice if you need to use two SIM cards
3 September 2012
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S DUOS is coming this fall and it will be moderately priced – you’re looking at an under $100 price tag, which is pretty good for a mid-range handset. The phone is perfect for those who want a dual SIM card device for everyday work that still looks stylish and has the latest software and features you can find on a modern smartphone.
Blackberry Torch vs Samsung Galaxy S – stacking up two flagship Blackberry and Android phones
31 July 2011
Conclusion: So, RIM seems to still be heading for a fall on the smartphone market, and unless they get something resembling at least the iPhone 3GS in speed and usability out the door, they’re pretty much doomed. Their current flagship, the Torch 9800 is simply pathetic and does not even compare with a previous generation Android phone. The upcoming Blackberry Bold, however, has most of these issues fixed, and could actually be a good choice – only if you are a big Blackberry fan.
Samsung Continuum Galaxy S Android Smartphone Quick Look
20 December 2010
Excerpt: Verizon recently sent me a Samsung Continuum Galaxy S Android smartphone to try out. This phone is very similar to the Samsung Fascinate , but includes one very unique feature that we don’t normally see on today’s smartphones – a secondary display. Let’s check it out. Note: Images in this review can be clicked to view a full-size version. I want to start out by saying that this isn’t going to be one of my standard reviews.
Verizon Samsung Fascinate Galaxy S Android Smartphone Review
6 October 2010
Excerpt: When I decided to ditch my iPhone 4 for an Android smartphone on the Verizon network, I had to choose between the Droid X , Droid 2 and HTC Incredible . I opted for the Droid X after checking out all three. At the time, the Samsung Fascinate had yet to become available. I didn’t want to wait any longer to make the jump, so I went ahead and purchased the Droid X mainly for the huge screen and physical buttons.
Pros: Gorgeous AMOLED display, Great battery life, Snappy performance
Cons: Feels a little like a toy, Back scratches easily
Summary: The latest addition the Samsung Galaxy S line is here on Verizon wireless and it’s called the Fascinate. This phone is worthy addition to the ever expanding Android line up that Verizon has going over there. I’ve gotten my hands on all of their Android phones so far and you’re going to have some tough decisions to make when it comes to choosing one surely.
Pros: Excellent call quality, Slim and lightweight phone, Great battery life, Decent pictures and video, Fast and responsive interface
Cons: Not Android 2.2, Bing only search, No dedicated camera button
Review of the Samsung Vibrant (Galaxy S) on T-Mobile
30 July 2010
Conclusion: The Samsung Vibrant is the best phone on T-Mobile and, possibly, the best phone on the market. While other phones offer features the Vibrant does not, the overall combination of slim form factor, beautiful 4-inch screen and decent camera make it a winner for me. That said, if you need mobile hot spot capabilities, you should look to the DROID X and EVO.
