S DUOS Latest Victim, 18 Nov 2012I never normally give negative reviews about any product. But time has come for me to give for... morewat u said is exactly correct..is it possible to surrender my phone and claim money from samsung???
pls dont waste money buying this phone..i bought it in saravana stores chennai for 16,250..its totally waste of money.
Negative points are:
-Phone hangs more(i used only 1 sim...what happens when i use both sims??)
-apps cannot moved to sd
-camera and calling takes more time
-poor call quailty(call breaks randomly)
-cannot play 720p videos
-poor response from phone(even game hangs while playing)
-lower RAM(for this price)
-music background play is not good(song breaks once in 15 sec
-multitasking leads to restarting of phone
-if u download somethings and play songs,the songs gets breaked at regular interval...
i was totally frustated..
This is my first phone from samsung and i understood that they are similar to low grade korean mobile manufacturers,..Even the phone gets heated while charging..
i will never buy samsung products hereafter...
I never normally give negative reviews about any product. But time has come for me to give for this product as I am going
through the Pain (Yes it's true) of using this so called Smartphone in past weeks. This will save you from the Mesmerizing & Misleading TV Commercials that the Leading Mobile manufacturer Samsung(Aapke Paas Nahi Hai Kya UNCLE/Desh Smart Ban Raha Hai Aap kab Banoge).
I am going to share the reasons for NOT Buying this product one by one so that they will clear the aspects/details about this product from inside out.
1)Music: Now-a-days very cheap mobiles are also having very good Music Players and come with a Decent headset. Here in this mobile, Music Player seems to be good. But the problem comes when you try to hear a full song. You can clearly observe Song breaks once in every 1-15 seconds randomly. Also, the headset that they have provided gives Output of Lowest clarity. The two above reasons will ensure that you will never listen Songs in your phone. very Smart Phone it is.
2)Dual Sim Functionality: Even though Dual Sim functionality works fine it is not so User Friendly to change settings and there are no dynamic features/settings to decide through which SIM Call/SMS has to be sent. One more great feature is SIM1 network is always POOR compared to SIM2 even though SIM1 network might be the Stronger Network in the place of test. Also, they have given DUAL SIM ACTIVE Mode but with a Cliché that Phone might not function as well compared to DUAL SIM Standby Mode. If phone does not work well in any given Mode, why to Deliver that mode to Customers. Is it to Fool the? Another great Smartphone tactic.
3)Performance: The less I say about performance, the better it is! Samsung team, please don't forget that any Phone's(including Smartphones) primary purpose is to Make/Receive Calls. The primary reason why we feel convenient to make calls with Cellphones is because of Memory where we Store phone numbers by name and we can dial with Single Click/Touch and thereby save time. In this so called Smartphone, the toughest thing is to dial a number in Quick time. If you want to Dial a Number, you unlock screen by swiping wait for 2 sec, then click on Phone Button again wait for 2-5 sec(depending on your luck), then search for the phone number/contact which will take some more seconds and then you have permission to dial. I can bet if you know/have the number you can dial faster in a Landline phone faster/easily. Performance of other functions follow the same patter. I don't want to get into those details now. What is the use of a Smartphone which irritates user when he is using the Most Important Function of a Phone-Making Calls!
4)Applications: Any Android phone has option of Moving Apps to SD card. This was my perception until I starting using this
phone. Alas! it was not true. This does not have that option. If you pay big bucks thinking that Samsung the leading Mobile
phone manufacturer will give a great phone without compromise will land into troubles like this. Another Smart feature.
So, please don't fall prey to TV Commercials of Samsung and think that every Samsung Smartphone is really Smart or great. Check for reviews and test the Mobile in showroom and then only buy the mobile as the Price is not so less for these Smartphones of Samsung.
Thanks for reading this Long review and I want to conclude with an ironic statement 'Don't just buy a Smartphone and think that you have become SMART. Instead you should be Smart and apply your senses(including common sense) and then buy a Smartphone. Then only our DESH will come SMART'
Hey I am using samsung galaxy s duos
All the spec in the internet shows me that my phone has an internal memory of 4gb...but here my phone is showing only 2gb of space....what d heck can I do???
Is this phone can make video call??
Or just for rec a video?
Hi, I have bought this phone and it is great! The only issue I have is that "no info" icon on the left of the notification bar that can be seen on the screen shots of this great review. Anyone knows how to get rid of this icon and make notifications restart working?
i have experienced all that have been mentioned in the review... based on my 2 months of experience with this phone, the few things it lags is the paocessor and the couldn't move apps to the sd fact... else its perfect...
This phone is good... infact it may be the oly ph with all those specifications at this price..... the only major prblm is that it is a bit slow... if the size of the ram had been more it would have performed better... ph gets jammed when there are more than two applications running in the background.... go fr this only if u cant spend more.....
Wow ! Are you sure those photo samples are actually coming from the S Duos ! They are incredible. Unfortunately, there's no low-light condition pictures. It would be interesting.

slimberry, 06 Nov 2012This article starts off by dividing the potential dual sim card users. 1: Dual carrier user &a... moreI live in Indonesia. It is common to have 2 or even 3 mobiles in case there is too much congestion with one carrier. Also rates vary if you leave the city. Indonesia is one of the fastest growing mobile markets in the world with the 3 main each carriers having more customers than the entire population of some countries. Yes you do need more than one mobile. Me, I have 3, and even then in peak hour traffic they might not work with a voice call. Oddly the CDMA mobile works better for voice calls in the city than GSM most times.
