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.
it is an amazzing phone of samsung..everything is great in this phone..its amazing :)

Mac Travic, 26 Feb 2014Hi Guys i now want to buy my new smart Phone within 27k. so What will be the best mobile in th... moreGo for note 2. I was myself in confusion between note 2 and grand 2 but bought note 2 5 days back. Display of both the phones are nearly same. Note's colours are more saturated whereas grand's screen white level are better. Note is faster but graphic handling of grand 2 is slightly better but not by much due to better gpu. Its s pen feature is very handy sometimes. 4.3 update is available and samsung is also giving 4.4 update expected by april end. Hope my review is helpful.
