Samsung Galaxy Grand Review

Samsung Galaxy Grand is an attempt to provide users with a feel of top-end devices, such as Galaxy S III & Note II, at a very affordable price and decent specs. With Micromax launching it's very first Quad-core smartphone A116 Canvas HD for just  ₹15,500 (Apprx.), users now have a bunch of android phones to choose in the mid-range budget and they usually prefer brands like Micromax, Karbonn and Xolo over Samsung's Galaxy Ace Plus and HTC's Desire series. To overcome this to a limit, Samsung released Galaxy Grand, a mid-range budget smartphone priced at 21500


Samsung Galaxy Grand comes with a massive 5'inch WVGA with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels with  a pixel density of 187ppi which is quiet decent but a HD screen would have made it a killer deal. Now, at a much lesser price Micromax is providing customers with a 720p IPS display with a pixel density of 294ppi.

Processor & Memory

Galaxy Grand is powered by 1.2GHz Dual-Core Broadcom processor (not Exynos). It comes with a built-in 8 GB internal memory (which is twice compared to Micromax Canvas HD A116) and expandable upto 64GB (32GB in Canvas HD A116).


Galaxy Grand runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung's Touchwiz UI and includes almost all the demanding features from it's big brothers like Smart Stay, Pop up Play and Direct Call


Galaxy Grand also becomes the very first phablet to include the dual-SIM facilty in the mid-range zone with Quad-band 2G supported by both the SIM slots, whereas 3G connectivity is supported only by SIM1 slotWeighing in at just 162g , Galaxy Grand is 20g lighter than the Galaxy Note II and is one of the few phones in its segment to feature a dual-band Wi-Fi ‘n' which provides users with much faster connectivity.


Galaxy Grand packs in a 8 MP camera with LED flash and digital image stabilization which helps you take decent shots in low light. Resolution is similar to that of Galaxy Note II. Videos on Galaxy Grand can be recorded at 1080p at 30fps.


Last but not the least, Samsung Galaxy Grand comes with 2100 Li-ion mAh battery which  provide users with quiet a decent amount of talk time in addition to other activities such as media,browsing, gaming, etc.


Samsung Galaxy Grand seems to be a very good investment for those who wishes for S III and Note II but can't really afford it. Not only that, it also provide users with features which most of the smartphones don't in that particular price range. 

Thumbs up for Galaxy Grand!!
