  • A Happy S DUOS User

After using this phone for nearly 20 months, I can say I am a very happy user of Samsung Galaxy S DUOS.I was initially unhappy that I had paid large sum of money to buy a smartphone, mind you it was my 1st smartphone purchase. I was waiting for a smartphone which the right blend of my requirements and this one satisfied all and still going smoothly.
I wanted a phone with below requirements

1)Android latest version
I got ICS in 2012 which was decent

2)DUAL SIM
I am a regular traveler and only use prepaid for Voice/Data,so Dual Sim always helps

3)Mini Sim
I Swap my Data Sims between various Dongles/Phone/Laptop, so I feel Mini Sim is the way to go as it has Compatibility across devices. I think it is unnecessary in my opinion for the reduction of SIM Size from Mini to Micro/Nano. My question to Mobile Phone Companies When you are increasing the size of the phones so drastically, why cant you keep the SIM size constant

4)Size of Phone

I think S DUOS at its size if the perfect smartphone size for Indians who don't have big hands like Europeans or USA guys.

5)External SD Card Slot and Removable Battery

The above points are always there for a Samsung phone

6)Decent Hardware/Specs
The hardware/specs are decent for a regular user like. Touch is fine, GPS, WIfi , Hotspot, Small Applications run smoothly. I am not big Gamer so I am not bothered abt it.

Overall S DUOS it's worth its money every paisa, and I don't want to change my phone until it breaks to a bad extent. If I have to give a suggestion to new buyers with budget in their mind, I think you guys can go for S DUOS 2 which is an improvement over S DUOS while retaining all above characteristics.

I have thank Samsung for releasing perfect mobile to suit our Common Man of India(Aaam Admi) which are long lasting and hope for similar products in future.
