For those who find their s duos slow and hangs a lot, here's a solution to boost it speed. Go to Settings-> developer options-> and Window animation scale and Transition Animation scale -> change both of those to 0x. The phone now runs snappier and faster and will minimize hanging and freezing of your S duos.
adreno 200, cant run 720p or 1080p hd video.....in this price range why with vga playback?

nehal, 02 Sep 2013poor battery life and dissapointing performance !!Try did keep d gone on charging for whole night
can i increase the ram of this phone to 1gb from any samsung care..??
a lot hanging while using 2 sim cards and using wifi dont know have to do manual reboot every 1 month
Samsung s duos is a good choice for me.
1) Its a dual sim and no need to carry two cell phn.
2) Camera is awesome both back and front. During night front is ok but during day time it is too good nt like VGA CAM which is good for SKYPE or VIDEO CALL.Back cam during night with flash is awesome and during day time it is too awesome.
3) Camera flash light can also be used as flash light during night.
4)While playing music u can still open camera and if u want to off cam sound u shud keep yr mobile in vibrate or silent mode.
5) U can take yr mobile screen pic (Screen shot) by pressing the HOME BUTTON AND LOCK BUTTON AT ONCE.
6) Video editor is present known as Trim.No need to download for this set.
7)Browsing internet is speed.
8) The user of s duos must download CLEAN MASTER frm play store, its clears RAM n keep away frm hanging.
9)If yr mobile hangs go to setting>app>running app n close unnecessary app which are running.
10) GAMES AND APPs I used in this set - TEMPLE RUN 2, SUBWAY SURF,WHATSAPP, WE CHAT, TALKING TOM 2, APPS LOCK, FAST RACING 3D, HILL CLIMB RACING, POOL, TUBEBOOK YOUTUBE DOWNLOADER,(PICS ART and MAGIC FLUIDS best apps i really love it) MOBILE NUMBER LOCATOR, JUICE DEFENDER AND 8 MORE APPS......
Before I bought S Duos I was planning to buy Micromax canvas but I was afraid coz its service center is too bad.
And Nokia 520 there is no front camera, no flash light n no dual sim.
Finally bought s duos as it is a trusted company and good service center.
S DUOS USER WILL GET JELLY BEAN UPGRADE AS SAMSUNG HAS ALREADY ANNOUNCED 10 SAMSUNG DEVICE TO GET JELLY BEAN IN WHICH S DUOS IS ALSO PRESENT...MAY BE WE NEED TO WAIT FEW MONTHS....
(SORRY IF MY ENGLISH IS WRONG)
Samsung needs to work hard to improve this phone,it was good but need better performance than features.
