Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos Preview
0. phoneArena posted on 22 Jan 2013, 07:45
Anyone eager for a big-screen smartphone that might not break the bank? Samsung is apparently trying to fill the void in your soul with a 5” Galaxy Grand, which skimps on features like HD screen resolution and memory to reach that goal. Add to this a dual SIM version with the Grand DUOS we have in our hands, and the phone becomes double attractive, especially in Asia, where phones with two SIMs are thoroughly respected. Has Samsung compromised too much to reach its target market? Read our preview to find out...

I dont think this phone is 'market ready' yet, feel like sammy is hurrying a bit to compete with the Canvas series in India..

Dont compare Samsung with micromax....its like comparing Ferrari with Maruti-suzuki.

I agree on with you when it comes to quality, but sales is what that matters and canvas is doing well, and samsung just cant ignore that .. thats what I was trying to say..

I dont think that the repliers age would matter here! :-)
Anyway the market and price and sales all depend on the company's customer care and marketing stratergy. I wont say the Samsung is very best in customer care but when compare to MMX, it is right at the top. Just see how the two companies are giving updates? how many firmweres does mmx released to public? Sammy is way ahead. Also mind you, mmx does not manufacture phones, most of the time they just bring things down from China and put their stamp. But Sammy does most of the manufacturing parts on their own! Also brand recognition is a positive factor for sammy!

Yes age doesnt matter :)
but the boy seemed like a hard core fan boy and wasnt ready to take anything against Sammy! I did agree with him that with respect to quality, samsung is way ahead, but my point was and is Canvas range is getting lots of attention, the matter of fact that it stayed no.2 in most interested mobiles category at GSMArena tells you the story. Thats exactly what I was trying to convey and the boy wanted market figures!

No cross swards bro.. but I just checked on GSMArena stats,
By rating it(Canvas) stays in the 11th place (overall - no place for SGG), and no position within first 8, when it comes to daily ratings ( So do SGG)
By daily interest its no where among top 8 (SGG stays at 3rd and 4th positions).

I am surprised at myself that i am dragging this nonsense further more, anyway, do you realize that this article and my comment were posted on 22nd Jan? and the interest for mobile changes with every new mobile announced. I was talking about the ratings of that time and here is a proof
I think I will rest my case here. Thank you.

well actually Micromax has come a long way now,they are gonna release their canvas hd with a 5 inch HD screen at a really affordable price...........but they managed to keep some good specs like a quad core processor,,,,,,,,,,,

Who would want a 5inch screen with 800x480 resolution?
They could have at least made it 960x540 for the PPI to reach 220.
Instead they could have just cut the camera to 5MP.

I have experienced this phone just today at a SAMSUNG STORE it looks good. Comfortable to grip on. One thing that I want to know that has Samsung made it in only white color ??? And yup Camera works good having 4x zooming in both even in Full HD video Recording. Available In-built Space is 4.07 GB & RAM 867 MB as far as resolution Concern then 187 PPI is not that much worst physically when you take this phone in palm. Still a big question mark on the name of processor..????? Best Buy Price in Surat, Gujarat 20,900 R.S /-
