The phone is just ultimate, love it!! :) :)
but I am facing following issues with the kitkat update of grand 2, hope samsung will come out with fixes soon :(
1. Now it become impossible for apps to know my current location without switching ON GPS, now any app can't detect my current location using wifi or mobile network, so to do even very basic tasks you have to switch on GPS every time.
2. Whenever I start using my phone, lock screen is displayed with a lag of 1 second.
Which phone is better xperia zr grand 2 or htc 816 plz help guyz m confused!

balu .harsha, 17 Jul 2014Frndsss... Plz tell me which is the better either grand 2 or htc desire 816 im gng to buy grnd... moreHTC desire looks much better and it has a better camera and better speakers. However, it has power button on left side which may be an issue if you use flip cover. Also it's a bit more expensive than Grand2.
vinay, 17 Jul 2014call is not going when Keypad is in one handed operationHello Vinay, Unfortunately for me the single handed operation is not working after updating to Kitkat- so I haven't tested it yet. Yes, some other people have also reported issues with single handed operation in Kitkat update of Grand2.
