Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 now has a gold version
Samsung doesn’t usually release gold color versions of mid-end smartphones, but it’s making an exception in the case of the Galaxy Grand 2. Initially launched in January (in black and white), the Grand 2 currently costs around $300, and, according to recent data, it’s one of Samsung’s best-selling handsets of this year.

The gold variant of the Grand 2 is available only in a few Asian markets for now (including Malaysia), and will be released in others (like India) pretty soon. Obviously, the new color doesn’t change the handset’s specs, and neither its price. So you’re getting the same features that the black and white versions are offering: a 5.25-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, dual SIM capabilities, 1.9 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space.

The Grand 2 was recently updated to Android 4.4 KitKat (from Android 4.3 Jelly Bean). To find out more about the handset, you should check out our Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 review here.

You're completely WRONG on this one. My cousin has one of these, and even though I hate Samsung's design and built quality, this phone surely has to be one of the best constructed phones on the market, and the best built Samsung phone I've ever held, more so than any S5 or Note 3. Its a mid ranger, but it really feels like a flagship. The faux leather might put some people off, but it feels a million times better than the gross slippery plastic of Samsung's earlier phones. The problem with it is its laggy TouchWiz UI, which even after running KitKat, lags a lot.

That hideous gold phone belongs in the European man bags of all the greatest lounge singers. Fake velvet, leather, and cheap cologne were made for each other.

wow, some people are so harsh on this phone, like it would be the high-end offering from Sammy. its a mid-ranger, deal with it. its obvious it wont have "premium" materials. 300$ price already says something.

There are the Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, S5. It seems like you can't afford any of them, but it ain't one of my problems. :v
