grand 2 is the best bet...except for the internal storage...not too much of a problem because I struggle to use even 2gb of my internal storage on my current galaxy s3..why would I want a game of 1gb on my phone..if ur so crazy about gaming get a play station..the heavy games even super drain the battery. its also a dual sim..it only lacks the led light and some app can compensate for that and it's a bit over priced. .the multitasking and dual sim are real modern top features and a better battery and above average camera..if you can spill the cash go for it..
got an ota update on 26th night.
its a 10.74 mb update.
says performance improvements.
now felt my grand 2 little more faster.
but in day to day operations i didn't observed any difference between s4 and grand 2

Gsmarena when will you post the review? Waiting from last week since you posted the hands on. Please bring it soon
Using this since 3 weeks now.. everything is awesome in this phone for the price i paid! Did a lot of research on specs since I was looking for more than 1 GB RAM, quadcore and display size within 25k.. Grand 2 is a perfect phone for a mid-budget planned buyer! Loving it.
Another release by Mobile Giant:Samsung
Galaxy Grand 2

To all :
Lets talk about the shameless restriction from android 4.4 onwards.
Alert !!!!. Android 4.4's shameless restrictions :
Rahul, 26 Feb 2014Go for note 2. I was myself in confusion between note 2 and grand 2 but bought note 2 5 days b... moreI have the same confusion now. But note 2 is a little bit expensive than grand 2 which forces me to go for grand 2.. so dont know what to do :/
Ash, 26 Feb 2014hey Some one tell me please Grand 2 or sIII (3) which is better and good ? please Reply me thank youno go for samsung...buy lumia
Where can i find the FM radio on this Phone. Not the internet based radio.. i want direct local radio.
Grand 2 is an amazing phone. It's large screen and HD display makes it my favourite mobile. I love playing hd games on it. It plays all games flawlessly. The only problem is that it heats up a lot while charging. Other then that, it's a prefect phone for people who want a light weight, big screen and awesome built quality phone. Go for it.
Please do not update your device to 4.4 or later.
The shameless google has imposed restrictions on SD card usage in android 4.4 onwards. Did anyone know about this?. Search google with the keywords 'microsd card access problem in android 4.4'. Then you will come to know.
The restrictions (when the memory card is used in android 4.4 (or later)) based mobiles* are :
> Cannot copy or move files and folders from internal memory to SD card.
> Cannot receive files to memory card (via WiFi or bluetooth)
> Can only download files (not via torrent softwares) to memory card.
> Cannot create a folder or sub folder in the SD card.
> Cannot copy or move files within the SD card.
> We can only read and format the SD card and set the storage for camera pictures and videos to SD card (not to specific folders, just in common).
> Usage of all file managers is restricted.
* means - not via card reader.
