"Yes, this phone has got very good look ( to cheat!!) but as usual it's a samsung's very poor quality plastic body"
The flimsier plastic actually will prevent it from shattering when it is subjected to hard impact. It can withstand more torsional stress thanks to the flexible material. Elementary physics!
"Screen is major topic to consider, very bad resolution,"
Yes the resolution is low, however the display quality isn't bad at all. Sure it's not upto AMOLED or Super LCD standards, it isn't unacceptably bad. There are no notable traces of pixelation unless of course you take a magnifying glass and start hunting for pixelated areas.
"We get only ~4GB user space, ~800mb RAM We can't move application to SD card!!"
Ram is 1.2 gigs and I don't think you need more than 4 gb of user space just for your applications! This doesn't qualify as a con at all.
"You can find the real poorness of the camera in this phone when you take picture of half part fully bright and half part fully dark !!"
Bullshit! It does a decent job in low light conditions. Again it shows that you never really bought the phone.
"The only outside piece with white flip cover looks great when girls holds in hand ! But for a boys its too irritating to use with a flip cover. and its width is much higher so not that much handy to handle in single hand !! specially while u eating or drinking."
Hahahahahhahaha!! You really sound like a girl ranting about how inconvenient the flip cover is XD . Moreover it is just a freebie and it's not necessary that you have to have it on the phone.
"The most important factor is, while you watch social medias, Not all friends upload the SLR camera quality pictures in facebook!! so friend's photos looks very poor, u lose the beauty of the original picture because of this pseudo smart phone! Just the phone looks beautiful but it kills the real beauty of your pictures, wall papers, videos, Themes etc.
The application icons looks too big and losses the glossiness and actual look."
Again, 1 paragraph of nonsensical ranting. Big applications, glossiness, actual look? What the hell? How did you manage to interlink these 3 factors?
"In case of malty task , its not malty, its only two at a time"
First of all *Multi. Secondly I ran 5 apps at the same time, no lag whatsoever. When I tried to run Dead Trigger as the 6th, then a minute amount of lag was notable.

According to me phone for the price has a good rather not bad display. If you were earlier using a low end screened smartphone you'll not find that of a difference.
Here are alternative phones
1st HTC ONE S ( international 1.5ghz processor not available in india but you can buy it from ebay )
2nd HTC ONE SV
3rd Sony Xperia S
4th HTC ONE S ( Asian version 1.7ghz available in India )
5th SAMSING GALAXY SII
6th SONY XPERIA P
If you are not concerned about company then leave all the above phones and just go for MICROMAX CANVAS HD.

Can anyone tell me, does the phone hang quite often? And sometimes calls get dropped while both the sim are on? I am craving to buy this one...But is there any plans from Samsung to launch a new version of this with better screen PPi, in recent future??Then I will wait for that.....
Can any one give a quick reply??

This is a great phone with all necessary spec with cheap price. In Cambodia, it's only 350$ with one year warranty from Samsung company.

this is not a high end model, this is a mid range with good options.
i sell my galaxy S DUOS and bought this one, its a huge diference, and its perfect to me, it keeps the dual sim, its MORE POWERFULL than my S DUOS, and have a bigger screen.

Don't be fool to pay 21.5K for this very poor resolution phablet !!!
Hey guys, Even if you are new smart phone user and want to buy a new phone, Dont go for this..!!
Samsung once again proved that, its making such low quality product to compete with local companies ( micromax , Karban .. etc). It's not at all looking for the out standing competitors (Sony, htc..). Yes, this phone has got very good look ( to cheat!!) but as usual it's a samsung's very poor quality plastic body, Screen is major topic to consider, very bad resolution, you will find when see your photos took by other mobile/Cam. when you watch Non HD videos, you will find difference!! its too bad view in this phone to compare to Micromax Canvas A110. I took this mobile (out side the flipkart) because of it's configuration but i sold it off with in two days for (18K). Due to-
-We get only ~4GB user space, ~800mb RAM
-We can't move application to SD card!!
-It's looks better than S3 but its not that much handy to hold compare to S3!
-You can find the real poorness of the camera in this phone when you take picture of half part fully bright and half part fully dark !!
-The only outside piece with white flip cover looks great when girls holds in hand ! But for a boys its too irritating to use with a flip cover. and its width is much higher so not that much handy to handle in single hand !! specially while u eating or drinking.
-The most important factor is, while you watch social medias, Not all friends upload the SLR camera quality pictures in facebook!! so friend's photos looks very poor, u lose the beauty of the original picture because of this pseudo smart phone! Just the phone looks beautiful but it kills the real beauty of your pictures, wall papers, videos, Themes etc.
-The application icons looks too big and losses the glossiness and actual look.
-In case of malty task , its not malty, its only two at a time.
-The sound output of the phone speaker is not that much louder as of S2.
-The people are buying this mobile because of brand name. But SAMSUNG people forgot that and compromised in many ways (Display, Deisign, Naming a phone, specially back cover, Camera) except simply giving a good configuration!
Its just a matter of 5k to make a better choice of other higher model or save 10k use micromax!
This is only for those who concerns the above factors! Rest can enjoy the phone !
