I have been using the grand for 6 days, and yet so far so good. No hanging, no restarting. The camera is a bit disappointing, but the video recording is fantastic. Overall this is a very good dual sim handset. I give 8/10.
I think those of you facing problem with the phones hangs might have install too much apps without restarting the phone.
Also maybe u failed to properly run-in the battery by charging full, then let it discharged until 0 for few times.
I never face any hang issue whatsover after almost a month using. All are wonderful experience, solid phone, fast, smooth, and best of all... CHEAP.
I wont fall again to those bombastic stories of phone with so much cpu-cores, so call high pxel, HD screen, when this cheap phone rally deliver... so well, i felt this is the best phone-per-price in the market anywhere... anytime....
When sim1 is engaged and you want to reach sim2 in the same GG mobile, It will say "Not reachable or will not connect" To have the call waiting options, you should contact your Sim2 service provider and enable call forwarding to Sim1. It really attracts some additional cost to the call and should solve your request for the call Waiting option to your sim1 from sim2.
xolo x1000 has better screen. has an Intel processor. if. u can purchase other than Samsung then u can go for it. it has no hanging problem s.
This is for all those ppl who are looking for buying a phone but are confused about the performance of grand. Just like many here, even I was not so positive about buying this phone esp after reading all the negative comments here about grand. Well, I bought grand on 10th march. Since then, I am not facing any problems. I have installed some medium level games and also a heavy game like speed drift. The phone does not lag and runs smoothly. Camera clarity is awesome. In camera settings, just select the auto contrast option as on and the sharpness of the pic is increased. If u need a bright display, then just deselect the 'auto display' option and increase the brightness. I have set the brightness level to middle level and the screen looks good. If this is ur first android phone and u dont have ny experience in software upgradation, then plz dont experiment and spoil this phone and then dont put the blame on samsung. Instead, give the phone to the samsung retailer from where you got it. Go for it guys, beleive me it is indeed very Grand!!!

Sriram, 19 Mar 2013The phone is good. But the price is on the higher side. Since the phone is good, we can't pay ... moreAgreed, but the free goodies that come with it are really worth it. The flip cover- its of brilliant quality better than the original one that comes with S3 and it costs 1500/- 2gb Vodafone 3G data free for 2 months that's worth about 700/- 50gb dropbox space and my services worth atleast 1000/- So 1500+700+100= 3200, So you have already got your 3000/- back. Go for it guys if you are willing to buy, its worth 21000/-
I have been using Grand since ten days and I'm new to Android. Everything works perfectly smooth and fine. I haven't updated the firmware yet, Should I update the software? coz I'm scared that it would lead to any new problems that I haven't encountered so far. Would anyone please suggest me briefly as to how to update it? Thank you in advance
GrandUser, 20 Mar 2013what are the best and most suitable games for galaxy grand? please suggest...... Also where t... moreSix guns, real football 2012, blood and glory, blood and glory legend, dead trigger, E-warrior 2, Temple Run 1& 2, you cant download more than this coz your 4gb memory would already be packed with these games. All these free games available at Google play store, just download and install them through wi-fi or data plan
Guys did anyone install and play the game Beach Buggy Blitz on Grand? I have played it on my Grand and it freezes and lags a lot. Other big games like six guns, real football are working perfectly, then why not this game. After all its just a 50mb game. Any reason?! I liked this game a lot :(
Times coming to raise the camera resolution of mid ranged phones from common 8MP to 10-11MP....
