DAVID FROM NIGERIA SAYS
"All on gsmarena about the phone is gbabeski(perfect) except the 4gb internal memory = approx. 2gb.
But the phone is the best dual sim.
Dual sim function is ultimate.
Touch screen, widget, apps, memory, camera, gallery and others are unique and lovely.
This is my second month using the phone in NIGERIA, and I have not regret buying it, The phone is just lovely.
Another thing is the music player, Best of it's kind.
SAMSUNG S DUOS, I LOVE YOU. Telegan loku (meaning, Bad belle people says otherwise)"
Well I have been using this phone since a month and here I would like to review it a bit -
• If you are searching for a phone that plays games, like tons of games without lag, do not go for this, the apps you download do NOT save to micro sd card which is a major Drawback. The ICS software occupies a great deal of RAM making the phone slow at times, so you gotta clear the RAM like 3-4 times a day.
• Battery life is standard like of most samsung phones, the touch works very good even with a matte finish, would be heavenly with a gloss one,.
• Do not compare this phone with S3 or any of HTC. Tons of difference, but with the budget of about 15-16k (INR), this phone can do wonder..
• Jelly Bean imo requires lesser amount of running RAM, think that would solve some of the problems.
• See youtube videos to know how you can limit the background processes for lesser utilization of RAM. GR8 camera quality, do NOT download games exceeding bout 800MB for it will lag like hell.
The fone is a good one, but it is how you use it. Use it like a phone, not a tablet, will run smoothly. Use it like a tablet, download loads of games, you'll hate it bad.
For gods sake, its a phone with bout 700mb ram, not a tablet. :)
i hav this phone........skype is working very fine.....both fron and back cameras are working during skype call.....
Guyz i am confused b/w micromax a90s and s duos...plz tel me which 1 is good
I never normally give negative reviews about any product. But time has come for me to give for this product as I am going
through the Pain (Yes it's true) of using this so called Smartphone in past weeks. This will save you from the Mesmerizing & Misleading TV Commercials that the Leading Mobile manufacturer Samsung(Aapke Paas Nahi Hai Kya UNCLE/Desh Smart Ban Raha Hai Aap kab Banoge).
I am going to share the reasons for NOT Buying this product one by one so that they will clear the aspects/details about this product from inside out.
1)Music: Now-a-days very cheap mobiles are also having very good Music Players and come with a Decent headset. Here in this mobile, Music Player seems to be good. But the problem comes when you try to hear a full song. You can clearly observe Song breaks once in every 1-15 seconds randomly. Also, the headset that they have provided gives Output of Lowest clarity. The two above reasons will ensure that you will never listen Songs in your phone. very Smart Phone it is.
2)Dual Sim Functionality: Even though Dual Sim functionality works fine it is not so User Friendly to change settings and there are no dynamic features/settings to decide through which SIM Call/SMS has to be sent. One more great feature is SIM1 network is always POOR compared to SIM2 even though SIM1 network might be the Stronger Network in the place of test. Also, they have given DUAL SIM ACTIVE Mode but with a Cliché that Phone might not function as well compared to DUAL SIM Standby Mode. If phone does not work well in any given Mode, why to Deliver that mode to Customers. Is it to Fool the? Another great Smartphone tactic.
3)Performance: The less I say about performance, the better it is! Samsung team, please don't forget that any Phone's(including Smartphones) primary purpose is to Make/Receive Calls. The primary reason why we feel convenient to make calls with Cellphones is because of Memory where we Store phone numbers by name and we can dial with Single Click/Touch and thereby save time. In this so called Smartphone, the toughest thing is to dial a number in Quick time. If you want to Dial a Number, you unlock screen by swiping wait for 2 sec, then click on Phone Button again wait for 2-5 sec(depending on your luck), then search for the phone number/contact which will take some more seconds and then you have permission to dial. I can bet if you know/have the number you can dial faster in a Landline phone faster/easily. Performance of other functions follow the same patter. I don't want to get into those details now. What is the use of a Smartphone which irritates user when he is using the Most Important Function of a Phone-Making Calls!
4)Applications: Any Android phone has option of Moving Apps to SD card. This was my perception until I starting using this
phone. Alas! it was not true. This does not have that option. If you pay big bucks thinking that Samsung the leading Mobile
phone manufacturer will give a great phone without compromise will land into troubles like this. Another Smart feature.
So, please don't fall prey to TV Commercials of Samsung and think that every Samsung Smartphone is really Smart or great. Check for reviews and test the Mobile in showroom and then only buy the mobile as the Price is not so less for these Smartphones of Samsung.
Thanks for reading this Long review and I want to conclude with an ironic statement 'Don't just buy a Smartphone and think that you have become SMART. Instead you should be Smart and apply your senses(including common sense) and then buy a Smartphone. Then only our DESH will come SMART'

AnonD-77958, 18 Nov 2012no this is good for nothing take s advanceS Advance has only one SIM card function.
But if not concerned about the dual SIM card feature, yes S Advance is better.
The best dual sim phone + android 4.0.4. you won't regret. Not facing any problem. Dual standby fully functioning. But don't expect this phone as fast as sIII. Still worth it.
