Samsung I9082 Galaxy Grand preview: First look - read the full textIn a time when 5 inch screens are all the rage, the Galaxy Grand is Samsung’s attempt to cater to every possible taste (and budget) when it comes to smartphones. While the Grand doesn’t feature the 1080p screen that recent 5” flagships come with...

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 !

Nice fone. The only con is the display n resolution compared to S3 or note 2. But if you not the techy type you may not really mind. My rating 7/10.

Recently i bought this phone...

+ve things are..
1) Excellent Battery i am able to use my mobile more than 1 day. 2) Decent Display.. 3) good design.. 4) good processing speed.. 5) good color pixels. 6) Excellent Camera quality..

-ve things are
1) we are not able to play some games like subway run...

finally Samsung gave good mobile with this price (21500) no one gave this configuration with this price...

somebody is saying like it's not good .... see the price and tell about phone..if you need excellent phone
you go to s3 or note 2....

don't compare with Macromedia and other low brands... Samsung will use quality hardware.. if you are not able to use mobile at least 2 or 3 years what is use if you buy... Samsung mobiles will give that assurance ..
