i have galaxy grand n when i put 2 sim with 100% charge n didnt touch the whole day battery came down to 60% by night.
gorson, 16 May 2013May I know how is the shutter lag of this phone's camera? Does it have zero shutter lag (or ne... moreI do not know what is Zero shutterlag mate. But when i press the shutter button, it immediately grabs the frame. One weird thing is, when we touch the area we want to focus before pressing the shutter release, the flash light goes on to focus....but the most important thing is, it makes an whirring noise like in digital cameras as if something is physically moving. The LG P 500, did not use to make that noise. I do not know that noise is just made by the speaker or a servo mechanism is moving the lens inside!!
Its an amazing phone w.r.t. the pricing. Have been using it for about a week now and I can tell you that except for the music playback, everything is amazing. Planning tobuy a better set of earphones to see if that improves the music quality.
The battery easily lasts for about 2 days with the following daily usage pattern:
1-1.5 hrs calls
wi-fi for 4hrs
gprs for 2 hrs
music 2-2.5 hrs
videos - 1 hr.
I am using a single SIM, its possible that using 2 would reduce the battery backup time significantly.
Overall I feel unless you are willing to pay for Galaxy Grand or more, this is the best buy among all Android phones

subject: usb on the go function
the phone is good in all aspect
the new firmware upgrade for the usb on the go function have no effect on the phone previous otg function.
the phone is not detecting external flash drives or pen drives connected to the phone using otg cable.
but on removing the cable it shows the pop up menu for external drive removal. the phone home screen appears.
the external mounting function on the storage on setting menu also remain not accessible for disk mounting
i thought the new firmware upgrade will fix it but it don't done the purpose.
the other devices like mouse keyboard work like a charm can we connect printer via usb and take print out
please clarify my doubt on otg pen drive and ex printer connection and detection.
the details are also discussed in gsm arena page for this mobile they do report the same problem......
sorry for yesterdays mail the issue is due to pen drive firmware compatibility with phone otg firmware i tested three pen drives and in it pny and scandisk cruzer micro not supported but scandisk blade worked like a charm. so the reverse compatibility issue of the phone firm ware with pen drive firm ware must be fixed.
gopal, 11 May 2013I would simply say just go for it.I bought it after lot of research and gsm reviews.Thanks gsm... moreMost of the videos and written reviews I've seen about this phone is that it only has 700mb of free internal memory. If you were able to install asphalt 7, does it mean that you can actually move apps to SD on this phone? If so, does it have to be rooted first? Thanks in advance! I'm really looking forward to having this phone, but it'd be great if I can play nfs most wanted on it (and it's around 2gb, I guess)
This phone was excellent in every option they have provided. Except the earphones. Its better to throw them for scrap. I want to buy new earphones but I didn't find which will suits for this mobile. Ofcourse it has a 3.5mm Jack, but it doesn't suports the Samsung earphones which is having a 3.5mm pin. So anyone please tell me, the best earphones for this mobile.
parvesh198, 13 May 2013no no..i haven't done anything..tell me which is the best version ???....asian or world???...I am not in a position compare Word and Aisan.
BT what's your version?If you not comfotable with the steps like flash ,my recommendation is not to mix up the firmware regions.
Mikkan, 12 May 2013Did you flash the S110_recovery image with the flash tool? no no..i haven't done anything..tell me which is the best version ???....asian or world???...
Is there anyway to control the audio profiles? The standard meeting profile does not silence message sent audio notification nor vibrate on calls. Is there a way to control individual parameters - ring tone /vibration / email notification / sms notification / alarm in different profile with default program?
Had a 401mb OTA firmware upgrade. No difference obvious after the update.
Audio volume through speakers is not loud. So people with decreased hearing ability need to avoid this phone.
1.Price - You can't get a Dual core 1GB ram IPS display of international brand at this price
- Also the display clarity is also very good.
(with this phone Galaxy Grand is a NOT choice to be considered!!!)
2.Ofcourse the battery !!
3.LED notification for Missed call and SMS - which is very handy
4.Software like schedules Power on/off ,Battery saving software etc are usefull to optimize the standby timings.
1.Bit on bulky and heavier side
2.Only 1 button to wake the device
3.Completeness of Android porting - Doesn't affect the general users ,but affects advaned users and programmers!!
4.Development community is less leading to the lack of different flavours of ROM and firmwares
