An 8 MP camera unit is what is housed inside the Grand DUOS, with adjacent LED flash and zero shutter lag. The camera interface is also well-known, and offers numerous scene presets, as well as a macro mode, plus various color effects to spice up your pics, but no HDR mode.

The pictures turned out very good, even in the rainy day we shot them – accurate colors, well-defined details and adequate dynamic range measurements


Videos are recorded in 1080 definition with 30 frames per second, and the camera is fast in both modes. The footage runs smooth, with true colors, and without skipped frames, wandering focus or artifacts. Exposure compensation while panning around was also pretty quick.

Multimedia

All the bells and whistles of Samsung's Nature UX music and video players are present on the Grand DUOS, complete with a rich number of equalizer presets, as well as the PopUp Play function, which detaches the video you are currently watching and pins it on the screen while you do something else around it. DivX/Xvid video format files are supported out of the box, too.
