Powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS,the Galaxy Grand is a budget smart phone or phablet with 5″ (12.7 cm) large display,8 MP camera and dual SIM part.Apart from these, grand is powered by 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory, which can be extended to another 64 GB by use of microSD cards.
Until recently, dual SIM phones were grossly underpowered and battery capacities on them were quite less. This is certainly not the case with the Samsung Galaxy Grand I9082, the phone has 2100 mAh Li-Ion battery that is capable of powering your device for extended periods of time.
The 5 inch screen with a resolution of 480 X 800 pixels will certainly help in extending the operating duration of this powerful device, the Multi-touch screen is capable of 16 M colors, however we think WVGA display of this device provides a very low pixel density and it does not have dual-active dual-SIMs and Samsung is using a call forwarding service, which means whenever a call is forwarded carrier charges are incurred by the user.
The other features that Galaxy Grand Duos poses includes : a 2 MP front facing camera, Wi-Fi,Bluetooth, MicroUSB, A-GPS and GLONASS. Also the device has software customization introduced in recent jelly bean update for galaxy series phone like Direct Call, Popup Play and multi-window.
If you wish to get the phone, you can buy it for RS 21,500 at Flipkart (COD available) and Samsung India estore operated by Savex Computers Ltd.
