Kareem, 25 Jul 2014Just saw a promotion on Egyptian Souq (http://egypt.souq.com/eg-en/samsung-galaxy-s3-neo-gt-i9... moreBought it from there.. Very promising one. I hope you managed to grab yourself one for this price! :)
I live in Egypt, and this phone is in my hands now. It's been reported as a promising best seller here. Specs are similar to the Indian version, and the software code has been identified as I9300IXXUAND1, the one used in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Pakistan. As a phone, I liked it very much, though I was expecting a better way to handle battery life. I found some solutions to this issue despite being unable to root the phone properly so far. Overall, it's a very promising phone with reasonable size and price.

I have purchased this phone. It is a nice phone. I am facing no problem. Overall performance is good.
If Noone can tell better than my friend here, there is also no need to tell a good reason better than he explained. If there are phones of 2013 and 2014 in the market that are very cheap but useful, and many people buy them, like me on my low budget, why not get a flagship phone of 2012 with a proven ability and great processing ability ? It is not always necessary and possible to get a new model and high tech phone for all people with different income and budget. S3 is great to buy as long as it is possible to get it working in your country and your network. S5 has a few new features more than S3 & S4, which is not useful and required for everyone.
ran out of design.....
ran out of name.....

Anonymous, 09 Apr 2014Why do India love dual SIM phone?that every company that comes to India, knows and that's why they bring dual sim. Its feature and if u don't need don't use it and don't ask for it.
Dual-SIM phones are useful, even in highly developed countries, for several reasons:
1) Many people have one phone for work and one private phone (and keep lugging two phones everywhere). Most people I know that bought dual-SIM bought it for this reason.
2) It's useful when traveling abroad, especially when travelling for longer durations. So you have your home provider SIM on roaming and can send/receive SMS and phonecalls (even though that may be expensive) while at the same time using a local SIM-card for cheaper mobile data and local calls. I use dual-SIM for this purpose.
3) You can save some money by combining offers from different mobile operators that offer free data or free calls.
4) You can use two providers to get better coverage. My dad has one provider that has good coverage at his home and and another provider that gives good coverage in most places he is outside his home (but not at his home). So I gave him a dual-SIM phone so he doesn't have to bring two phones.
hmm... the specs sound similar to Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 (except the screen)...

But rather cheaper/free rates when calling same telco.
But rather then blaming on poor conditions, i feel should save up good, and buy a decent phone and a good plan and stick to it for a long long time before changing.
Picking one of the local brands or go all out multiple sim card, only give troubles and you change phones more often as it not good quality.

There isn't very much "Neo" about the Galaxy S5, not to even talk about the Galaxy S3 line.
[deleted post]pls remove your comment. It's insulting a nation just since you know a person of a particular nature. you do not seem to have any idea about work / social conditions in India which prompt the need for dual sim phones. And a majority of people in india look for economic data plans due to financial conditions of the population where income levels are not as good as those of developed countries.Two sims may give good options for data usage.
