I bought a Samsung S Duos on 30th June.13 vide ref # GT-S7562UWAINS (Pure White). I have read of lot of review and thought this is a decent phone for my daily use, I was a Blackberry user thought of switching to Samsung.
However, Samsung has given me shock not surprise. The battery is fragile like anything, with 100% charge when I make a call for about 5 minutes it goes down by 3% or more. Even if I don’t call just unlock the phone and keep the screen active for about 10 minutes; the battery charge goes down in double digit percentage. This was the performance with just Single Sim Card, can’t even imagine if I add one more Sim card in to it.
Coming to the performance I don’t know what user have to do with 1 GHz Cortex-A5 Processor while it is dead slow compared to my Blackberry Curve 9380 with only 256 MB RAM. I didn’t understand what is Anroid V4.0 is going to do with this Dabba (Idiot Box).
When I tried configuring my email it given me again a shock, rather Nokia E5 performs better than this overhyped device & brand. When you open even Gmail it takes minutes to come up and with absolute basic interface which gives you a look & feel of about 2005. The rocket science of downloading email and sequence of mails displays in the inbox still Greek to me. I have spoke to few of my Samsung Fan friends who is using such phones for last many years & discovered they are simply Penguins who is happy by reading the configuration nothing to do with performance.
Using just a week, I was so frustrated that I finally exchanged the phone with a colleague of mine i.e. Nokia Lumia 510- a basic smart phone but much faster and better performance compared to Samsung.
Last but not least, I am not a Gadget Guru however this is a caution notice to the buyers to kindly cross check yourself before joining Samsung League. For any further clarification I don’t mind sharing my experience further, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many better handsets available of different brand @ 12K.
yogi, 01 Jul 2013friends wait some time more and i sure after someday you all become v.happy with your duoshow u say after some days it will be gud.I using last one month it very depressive always hang if any option to avoid hang pls say.

nadeesh, 04 Jul 2013Ur phone shop dealer has changed ur orginal battery. U have got local battery. Check with orgi... moreMay be some virus affected. Try to hard reset it. Before doing it backup all your data (Contact, sms, apps etc.).
i have purchased this model..but sorry to say..its worst smart phone by samsung..battery is faulty..i visited to service center in thane..70% of customer complaint about battery discharge..friends do not purchase it..
I purchased last month in Chennai.
this mobile speed is very low.
phone could not be go outgoing when in both sims are in open.
same installing unwanted updates and applications its taking more data and reducing data speed.
Super love my samsung galaxy s...for me this phone
Realy rocks....although the battery sucks :(
even if we shift de apps,music ,games ,videos to sd card also,,,,,de mobile ll get slow down ah?
If u ask me which phone to go between 10k-12k. Then I will say if u want window phone then go for Nokia Lumia 520 or If u want android phone then go for Lg L5 ii dual. But don't go for S duos. Even micromax canvas 2 better option than S duos.
Worst mobile discontinue dis model samsung u r worst lagging hanging battery problem
Don't buy this phone, I'm so regret for it.
Now i'm know the single core & 768MB Ram is suck. Trust me, i'd used it. This phone not really expensive now, i know. But don't waste ur money. If u really looking for Dual Sim Card, AT LEAST choosing duol core & more than 1GB Ram.
this the best phon of the samsung.. i m using since last 2 month..amazing phon among all samsung phones
