Currently Known Issues of the Grand 2:
1. Over-heating: Haven't experienced this myself. Yes, the phone heats up under heavy load but never had any temperature warning.
2. Yellow flash in photos: I've seen this myself. Probably shutter lag. A simple software update can fix this.
3. UI lag: Probably because of bloatware. Disable all apps you don't use to free up system resources.
4. Sub-par battery life. Disabling unused apps/bloatware will fix this.
5. Screen scratches: Screen protectors are super cheap. If still not satisfied, tempered glass protectors are now commercially available.
6. Speaker problem: What speaker problem?
7. No KitKat: There will be a KitKat update in the future. Even the Grand 1 will get it.
8. "There are better phones.": Yes, but those better phones are also more expensive. Always keep the price in mind when comparing phones.
Excelent Display and camera clarity.
Design and texture resembels note3 leather finishing but fiishing is purely plastic.
Heats a lot after 20 mins of continous usage.
Old samsung design style.

I had similar problem and after putting the system sound to maximum this problem got resolved. Even if you put system sound to max, you can always use the volume control buttons to reduce volume. after you change the setting, I am sure grand2 sound volume would be quite loud while using the speakerphone.
Didn't quite understand your problem regarding app installation from google play. can you please explain? I am not facing any probem with app installation in grand2. Which app you were trying to install? There are some apps like wordweb which put the dictionary data by default to SD card since diactionary data is >50MB. Are you referring to that?
i have been using it for 2 weeks now and so far very satisfied with this grand2 :)

Brian, 24 Mar 2014Is galaxy grand 2 a 4G LTE?single sim, yes LTE@4G
dual sim: both support 3G but only one run for 3G at one time
heating problem is there in grand 2.. sometimes its heating tht much as ur finger can feel while on display touch...
Grand 2 laggs a little even on playing templerunOZ... Battery is very good while doing law tasks... But playing heavy games sucks 25-30% battery per hour... camera is not so good as expected.. it is better to buy galaxy s3 cuz you get s3 on same price and also camera is better than grand 2.. 1 thing That makes me hate grand 2 is you cannot root grand 2.. tried various method, but failed many time... 5 on 10 stars
