If you have not invested still in new mobile , see your priority , if you want good daylight camera , cdma internet ( Specifically ) as it has good internet coverage (3g) , then go with htc desire 816 , please remember if you dont want cdma preferable go with note 3 neo ( Compromise on camera , but the AMOLED screen , Stylus , removable battery and android L update ( remember this is note software so samsung will keep it less buggy , the reason they have not yet released kitkat ) )
Sony xperia T2 ultra has only 1 gb ram which is reason i opted out despite 13 mp camera ( Camera having poor focus also was a factor ) , and purchase only if you want 6 inch screen or if you feel sony has good quality looks.
AnonD-308952, 18 Sep 2014i have to probelm ? galaxy grand 2 have a glass protectionI have to problem? What was that btw?
Unfortunately , sony has habit of overcharging but their products reeks of quality having used xperia before , their prices have come down but all are old models , like xperia z zr might receive only kitkat as last update being more than year old etc. see the old software team was good as they gave one of the best software support for their old models the same thing avv mentioned , but the new sony has gone for more cost savings to increase profit , xperia c and sp is classic example.
They have the best android camera hardware , biggest sensor in android , but one of the buggy softwares which literally voids their efforts , but they are slowly improving ( SOny now even has OIS mobile compatible sensor might intro. in Sony Z3 , Z4 etc.. Sony is quality product be it screen , product build , while samsung does not look quality , but it is still durable & working product with buggy software but one of the best camera software.
Redmi is not available only a lakh or so mobile phone sold which is absolutely nothing , since it is not readily available there is no point discussing it much.
In my view this ph is fabulous.i am using this ph since four june.camera,processor,
Screen all thing is very good.
i have to desired buy a galaxy grand 2 4g . but a ihave small problem ? grand 2 screen does not gorilla glass or eny glass protection. plese help me to
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2014You said t2 ultra and zr images have low contrast. I read camera analysis of both t2 ultra and... moreHello Bro. in the segment where t2 ultra lies the best is HTC Desire 816. check NDTV gadgets review for both phone and you will feel like throwing away t2 ultra and go for HTC Desire 816. Sony is more of a fooling gang these days then coming up with worthy products. in higher range HTC is no match. Sony i have seen time after time and its just was a waste then and still :)
Is samsung going to launch 4.4.3 for grand 2...?? Sony has already launched it for their T2 ultra.....
Hi Prashant This Is Akshay
The problem which ur facing after 73mb update the same problem i was also facing but i downloaded septemper update kitkat firmware which include 73mb update from sammobile & i myself flashed the mobile using odin.
and all problem were solved the only crab thing is android kitkat security restriction (thirdparty app like filemanager can't modify,delete& copy paste data on external mmc).
AnonD-307696, 15 Sep 2014I checked if there any software update from phone>settings and got a 360 mb software update... moreDo not update, the kitkat for grand 2 is not yet stable, before i updated my grand 2 and then lots of problems occured, frequent restart, hang, bluescreen, etc, i went to service center and asked them if it is possible to reinstall the original 4.3 jellybean, and they said the only chance is to replace the motherboard and they did, my grand 2 now is ok and smooth:)
MzK, 17 Sep 2014New Kitkat 4.4.2 update sucks.... Apps not working properly.. :(After updated 4.4.2 my phone is keep on restart ......so regret updated to 4.4.2....
I have this phone 2 weeks ago its good, fast and reliable.
Screen its clear and sharp.
Sound in calls are clear.
3G/H+ connections are super fast.
GPS takes signal in a minute and its very accurate.
Camera is not the best but photos taken in sunligth are pretty good.
I recommend it with no doubts
Grand 2 is charging time is too long 3 to 4 hr
. Plz tel me how to uninstall latest 73 mb update as its have helped phone to charge more slow . Need help
Abhijeet , I am also thinking on note 3 neo , the kitkat update is just crap. How much did you get for grand 2 . And yes av , and anonymous... I did apply for redmi I as 2nd mobile but you know sale of seconds.
Ok , see Samsung is much better in its 8mp camera smartphone range than the Sony . I mean Sony L has different capability , Sony sp has different , I remember , with Sony Xperia P I shot photos , and with Sony Xperia L I shot 8mp shots , I just cannot tell you how good the 8mp with Exmor RS was (pun intended ). The same thing you don't see in Samsung across all it's 8mp range. And yes , Sony has Exmor RS sensor , whereas Samsung has it own BSI sensor which is know for its similar capability , though Sony is no.1 in sensor , in short both are good at technology , but Samsung saturated formula is more hit then miss , whereas Sony went on tinkering with settings in a wide way Sony Xperia p and Xperia s were considered the best cam. In Sony range even now despite Exmor RS whereas p and s had Exmor R , which shows it's poor software capability on photography , even many Sony users have admitted this whether it is Xperia M2 ( I mean m2 not m - av ) , Xperia t2 ultra , or Xperia zr , there are focus , light blurring etc. issues. Which is not hardware but software stuff. Even HDR mode is one of the worst. That does not remove the fact that z1 , z2 I.e. - 20 mp are excellent in daylight , they are excellent in zooming also , but at nnight time photos have more noise.
I must praise HTC which was able to turn from its 4 mp ultra pixel , into 13 mp camera with excellent daylight capability , either way yes , Samsung must move on to 12 mp - 13 mp in midrange. 8mp is lower and they should come out of their below s4 than only 8 mp mindset.
Service part is more judgemental , but htc , lg , and even Sony we're know for bad service even Sony service was with another agency , not Sony directly , whereas Samsung has many smart cafés and service station directly under them .
