A complete waste of money.
I bought this phone a few months back.
The look of the phone is the only good point about it.
I have not installed a lot of games/app in it but still the speed is pretty average.
The worst thing in this phone is data connectivity.
It only supports GPRS and not even EDGE on GSM network.
In Mumbai only Reliance provides CDMA data connectivity plans.(very bad connectivity and speed)
My recommendation would be a complete "NO" to this handset.
Don't go for it !!

I ain`t gamoholic but my basic usage is frequent calling and oftentimes usage of internet to check my accounts. In this connection, i would like to ask you how often i need to recharge my battery or can it sustain to day long without gaming? I am desperately looking for higher end handset and after lot of search I have been able to find it only "HTC Desire VC " which is broadly available in market, I also did compare this handset to Galaxy Ace duos where after reading many opinions, the cell seems to be worst. In this situation, i have no other choice. your reply to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org is highly appreciated.

Nice slim phone, Good build quality & Design, Awesome sound, Strong OS(ICS), Battery is also not bad but Camera is average and lack of EDGE, Compass and RAM(only 512 MB)
Q1 Hi want to buy this phone as my requirement is GSM + CDMA dual active (i should be able to receive call on one sim while talking on other)
Q2 i think Samsung will be bring GSM+CDMA version of Galaxy S DUOS soon with same spec's it will have 768 MB of ram and front facing camera (not sure about the dual active part)so is it worth waiting
Worst Phone for CDMA user.
I am a CDMA user and i used this handset,
Conference facility is disable for CDMA user,
Not showing Genuine Service Operator Name, f.eg- showing code (1023127, TATA DOCOMO) instead of RELIANCE CDMA.

it is worst phone in range of 20k,very slow processin of apps nd very slow browsing of net in gsm nd cdma network...dun go 4 it...
mobile was very slow when using gsm network..
and when i purchased this mobile from universal he told taht cdma supports to 3g but in andhra pradesh there is no 3g services available in ap...
It has become slow since i updated it to 4.0.3.
Now I have to kill all the tasks to load even the default Menu quickly, otherwise it takes 6-7 seconds.
Sometimes even if I add a widget to my screen, it doesnot appear..so hit and try is the way...But still..keeping the looks in mind and clear voice quality (using GSM only), I am satisfied with it. No Phone has better specs in this price range (20K)

Very Good Phone.
Using CDMA network for internet with EVDO works very good(TATA DOCOMO).Its fast as well.
Also you would get 6 months of free data usage of 1 GB on docomo.
Only problem I am facing is with the RAM.
I have installed lot of applications and since then my phone has started to slow down(Ex:When I come out of FB app to Home)it takes 5-10 seconds to load.
Works slower when compared to Samsung wrt RAM.
Rest of the things are really good.
