I read camera analysis of both t2 ultra and zr they having very good contrast in images . Gsmarena said that their camera performances are on par in the competition.read there analysis again.
T2 ultra is not good in low light but still its images are much better than that of grand's in low light conditions.
And as I said I don't know much about lg and htc.
yo yo, 16 Sep 2014very currupt cell phone.................. You must have got a clone version.
ASus Zenfone 5 and xiaomi mi3 are much much better with almost half the price of grand2.They provide more features too.
Regarding gorilla glass
When mobile fall on hard surface screen gets shock if shock is less it absorbs.Normal glass have less resistance to shock so they break easily even at small fall.while gorilla glass made up of special material which having more shock absorbing capacity hence more resistance to shock so they dont break for small falls.
Most of mobile use small sensors and lens which dont produce very good images.This images can be used for casual usage like use on social networking sites.
Its not good idea to print them and add them in photo album.
There are point and shoot and slr camera's specially dedicated for photography.
Every mobile uses different image processing. S duos, core, , quattro, neo are not better in camera performance. So the performances vary mobile to mobile. And these are facts if u doubt check camera performance test of every sony and samsung smartphone.
your telling analysis of xperia m which is below average performerer but 12 and 13 mp cameraphones are much better.
And who said sonys camera performance is poor in low light.
samsung have poor performance in low light.Even galaxy s4 and s5 are not good in low light conditions.
Phoneuserprat, 16 Sep 2014Yes , I know Samsung is providing the same 8 mp sensor , whereas they should offer 13 mp as pe... moreAnd to spot the difference between the images u really have look at them very carefully. So both the sony and samsung are not perfect in all photography areas.
And please dont use word poor because definitely they are not poor.Experia zr, , experia s, , experia ion are better camera phones from sony read more about it.Xperia m and xperia sp are average performerers.
Samsung cameras generally produces images with cold white balance(bluish tint) and bit cold but over saturated colours.they produce excellent details and low noise.
While sony produces images with accurate white balance and warm colours but with the visible noise and little oversharpening.
But sony mobile cameras better in low light due to its exmor r sensor which is specially made for it. If u snaps photos inside house sony will produce better images.Even outdoor images are not bad at all.so both the mobile cameras have their pro and cons.
sony mobiles were overpriced one year ago .Now they are very much cheaper.Regarding sony camera its not poor at all xperia zr camera better in all conditions specially in low light because of xmor r sensor. Experia s was one of the best camera phone in the market even it was better than s2. Gsmarena has given very less description about it search full camera tests on other websites.Grands performance in sunlight is better but in low light it is worst and it lacks hdr mode as well.
I don't know much about lg and htc.But definitely sony have better service.I never heard that sony's credibility degrade but definitely samsung's does.Definitely xiomi has less service centres but risk is worth taking at such a low price. Xiomi is not any cheap chinese brand, it has great reputation in china. Thats why it is also chinas apple.
xiomi redmi 1s sold out in a second thrice.

Every one coment's for the g2 well i would like to tell u that every one has its own choice and value for money so much u expend on your phone lifestyle the same u will get u back with your comfort. So i just want to say grand 2 is genuine piece and value for money. I'm happy with its performance
Yes , I know Samsung is providing the same 8 mp sensor , whereas they should offer 13 mp as per competition , but even those 13 mp has image noise , low contrast ( Sony ) issues , that reviews call them similar to 5mp camera ( t2 ultra , Sony zr ) it is more of faulty software issues which Sony is not able to sort out , lg 13 mp starts at 27k , htc 13 mp is now at 24k , which absurdly poor night time capability ( users are comparing it to 2mp night time photos ) , daytime is really good , these negative point is what Samsung has seen and they are overcharging for their camera's. Even other OEMs mistake is working to Samsung advantage .
Yes , grand 2 has poor screen quality , aviv I know it and other reviewers know it but it is definitely above average , only thing competition gives better screen at that price on similar models.
Anonymous and other reviews ,
What I am saying in hardware and update , is that now their is direct comparison say with moto g which is said to receive android L with 1gb ram , if Samsung does not release android L with 1.5 gb it will be more seen ( unless they abandon all 1.5 gb models of new Samsung updates ) , as moto g is a popular mobile , i hope Samsung will not take that risk , but will introduce android L ( the Sony base model to Samsung base model comparison does not work as they have different processors though similar in clock cycle ) , this is direct comparison . More ram will make the touch wiz ui not integrating argument diff. As was in case of s3. ( not defending Samsung just my feeling )
Samsung built quality is know to be good agains drop and fall , and I have seen that with grand 2 , quality is not measured alone by Crome colour , or plastic back , but whether screen cracks from fatal fall. All of good OEMs are good in built incl. Sony , lg ( minus nexus 5 ) , I was comparison xiaomi and Samsung , matte finish does not indicate good quality it is just a texture. ( yes , Samsung phones become unusually hot while charging which is not hardware but crappy software issue , I have already complained of poor software quality , and Samsung is notorious bad for that and it is my biggest grudge against them, even google internally likes samsung Software mistakes you know what I mean , but poor customers have to suffer ).
I forgot to mention that gorilla crack is pertaining to fault manufacturing or poor gorilla 3 screen of nexus 5.
Aviv , what I said was I wanted to upgrade to 5.25-5.7 inch , range as I use internet , and emails which are better on screen size. 6 inch is absurd for my taste , unfortunately back then only grand 2 fit the screen , and note 2 was 6k up with weaker processor then the snapdragon of grand 2. I would have like amoled or minimum Slcd.
Other reviewers , it is so bad , people are saying that I am praising Samsung because I have purchased the phone , which is absolute preposterous , please read my old comments and you will know I am critical of grand 2 updates , and not justifying phone for just any reason , what I am telling is basically if any of the aforementioned manufacturers have parts availability , removable battery , expandable storage that Samsung offers , more so Samsung has multiple service centres , does xiaomi , or htc claim good service , or even lg who does not admit the cracks of gorilla 3 screen despite crack in one week , which also shows how good lg service is , infact lg models we desire are available one a dime , the only models available are of Sony , which are equally overpriced , poor camera software ( their 13 mp t2 ultra review ) is we'll know , even 13 mp of Xperia z and Xperia zr has been criticised by reviews. Even some fellow reviews have support for my poor Sony service argument , and yes in india if it is not apple don't expect good 2nd hand price , as mobile phone in android constantly change , let me tell you the grand 2 drop is purely done by Samsung , if price was 21k , we will still be getting offers of 13-14 k minimum , which is now reduced to 10k , anyhow this is were Samsung is fleecing buyers , lg never changes their price , learn something Samsung , you have lost credibility in mind of buyers. Sony has poor 2nd hand sales , they immediately tell if it was Samsung I would give 2-3k more (many people will agree on this )
Phoneuserprat, 16 Sep 2014People go with xiaomi for the cheap price , not the quality , I can tell you keep a xiaomi for... moreAndroid updates are not so much depends on hardware.
These are the excuses given by manufacturers for denying the updates.Micromaxs lower performing dual cores support kitkat then why dont samsung's grand neo, quattro and core.
And remember the samsungs thumb rule, no update for below 10k mobiles. And no or atmost one update for its midrange devices.(10k to 25k)
Samsung does this because they bring lot many models every year and if they give updates to everyone their newer models may not be get sold.Because of bringing so many models every year they dont pay attention to their low and midrange device users.This is biggest disadvantage of samsung.
Sony brings very limited mobiles every year so they give support to each one though there is only one exception xperia c.
