So far after about 5 months this has been a great Dual SIM phone. Rare for New Zealand it works both on Telecom 850/2100 MHz bands on SIM 1 (850 been the predominant band) and Vodafone/2degrees 900/1800/2100 MHz on SIM 2 on the GSM bands.
I read the write ups prior to purchase and there was criticism of the screen display but I have not found this to be an issue. There may be better but overall its display is excellent.
I have only found a couple of minor annoyances and this applies to a couple of other Samsung phones I have had which is the ergonomics. Firstly the placement of the side switches. The on/off switch is toward the top right side about where you hold it whilst talking, given the handset is so wide and you can inadvertently turn the phone off mid conversation. Its as if no one bothered to test this phone post initial production. It would be better using the main button.
And the secondly the touch buttons right and left of the main centre button do not illuminate once the screen is unlocked unless pushed and then only temporarily. Like I say minor issues really and something Samsung could address fairly easily.
Otherwise I recommend this handset, its real good.
My phn sound has been decrease within 04th day of purchase.
I had to go for factory reset for the problem.
Except this, its a nice set.

AnonD-219670, 30 Dec 2013we bought this mobile 2 days back, rear camera resolution is not exactly 3264x2448, it is arou... moreOkay, this may not be the Grandest phone out there, but I disagree with you regarding the camera. How can you say that it's worse than a VGA camera? I'm a blogger, and I take a lot of photos for my blog and Facebook account with my Galaxy Grand. I'm not kidding. I guess it depends on how good a person is in photography.Skills matter, not just the megapixels. Lol
