I've been using the Galaxy Grand since 3 months & my experience is awesome. Its very good phone & full value for money. Just waiting for 4.2 update. Samsung has gone viral with advertising campaign of this phone almost like its flagships. But they are taking lot of time for pushing updates. Sony,LG, especially HTC make awesome devices but has many issues in pushing up updates to their high end devices now it seems Samsung is also joining their league which is not good for the market leader. Hope, Samsung speedup the process of updating the devices with latest OS updates.
I have been using this smartphone from a while and now I have started to notice that this phone doesn't stand where it promises.
You use internet and play a Game, and it slows down ! :(
I found these useful tutorials that I implemented on my own phone and it works quite fine now !!
