sanju, 05 Sep 2013when will 4.2.2 will be released on OTA for grand4.2.2 OTA upgrade is already available here in the Philippines. Improve UI experience, very fluid after the update. You can download application directly to SD card, you can transfer applications from phone to SD card. Day dream is available. You can change the position of multi tasking toolbar from left to right side of the screen or vice versa. Correct display of internal phone storage (8g is being shown). Transparent signal status display toolbar. Many options for lock screen. Driving mode, safety assistance and a lot more are added.
Many people may recommend Micromax canvas HD, Karbonn titanium S5 or any other phone, in favour of Samsung Galaxy Grand, and no doubt all of them are low budget high speed phones offering the maximum possible benefits to their users, but in terms of richness, Samsung always would be ahead of them.
Also, Samsung phones have a very good resale in the market. Initially my phone to wasn't behaving properly with me, even now it doesn't when it comes to 2G data service, but overall, the phone is quite good.
I actually wated to go for the Quattro version, because costs less, because it has a lesser resolution camera and a smaller screen as compared to i9082, but it has a quad core processor, offering better speed.
Therefore, I would appeal to all who don't worry about the camera resolution, and want a smaller screen, to go for the Samsung galaxy grand Quattro i8552, and also it costs lesser than Grand i9082. However if speed doesn't matter, but screen size and camera resolution matters, then this is also good.

jelly bean 4.2 is finally out in india....upgraded my phone today...its exactly 488.67 mb....
I got this mobile as a gift and the happiness last for just one day, when the mobile started switching off by itself from the 2nd day till today being 4th day. I have given the phone to Samsung Service Center and waiting for their response. Here are the things I observed.
1. Great display indoors.
2. Great look and feel if the device you purchased has no manufacturing defect.
1. Can't see the display in outdoors even with increased brightness.
2. Only 800 MB available instead of 1 GB, approx 300MB is occupied by Android processes (even after closing out unwanted processes).
3. Screen lags certain times when rapidly swiping for navigation(unlike in iPhone).
4. Weights heavy
5. Samsung did not update their website reflecting valid Customer Care Centers, many of the Hyderabad/Secunderbad CC Centers Phone numbers are not working, and changed their location.

I have purchased Samsung Galaxy Grand I9082 one and half months back. But it is found that the battery quality is very poor. In every 3 to 4 minutes battery is being exhausted by 1%. Whether in Micromax A110, the battery is taking at least 10 minutes to reduce by 1%.
The firmware update to JB 4.2.2 has been started rolling out in Asian region particularly in the South East.
Its really a normal thing nw a days ur cellphone is not having any kind of problem check out whether app in the background are stopped or not while charging and yes when we charged through usb, phone is not cuming in a direct contact with electricity phase. so relax if ur cellphone is under warranty please go and get a software upgrade i will just dilute a doubt about ur mobile mindset
Using it since May, 2013. Very nice phone. Resolution is bit low but can be compromised as it costs only PKR. 32000/-
Hello Dude, I just want to purchase Galaxy Grand, Please suggest me that can I go for it or else
