Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 review: The Grand refresh is not worth its Rs 24,890 price tag - Tech2

 

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is an inevitable update to the Grand Duos but poor pricing and tough competition make it hard sell.

It’s an ever tougher sell when you consider the Lenovo Vibe X , which is superior in almost every respect, retailing for the same price. To sum up, the Grand 2 is a worthy upgrade to the Grand Duos but poor pricing, tough competition and lack of some...

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 review: Double vision

 

The Samsung Galaxy Grand was the big-screened Samsung phone for the masses last season - and one that conveniently offered an extra SIM slot. It didn't go as far as the Galaxy Mega pair, stopping instead at 5-inches sharp of screen diagonal. This year,...

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Review

 

The new Galaxy Grand 2 is a mid-range phone with a large (yet not gigantic) 5.25-inch display and a speedy for its class Snapdragon 400 chip…

Vivid 5.25-inch 720p display ; Snapdragon 400 is fast, Android runs with almost no lag ; 2600mAh battery will last you a full day (and probably more) ; 8-megapixel camera captures nice images, smooth video ; Expandable storage ; User-removable battery

Dated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board ; Latest TouchWiz is not included ; Limited amount of internal storage: 8GB, only 5GB user-available

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is a very substantial upgrade to the original Grand that improves it in practically every aspect. We are particularly fond of the now much sharper and better looking 5.25-inch display, but the improvement in...

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Review – A worthy successor

 

Samsung went on to announce the launch of the Galaxy Grand series of smartphones last year and the original Samsung Galaxy Grand went on to sell well and became the almost-best selling smartphone for the company in the mid-budget range. And last month,...

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Smartphone Review

 

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is the latest smartphone to be launched in India. The handset features functions and apps found in other high end phones.

• Good camera ; • Impressive battery life ; • Dual-SIM ; • HD display ; • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS ; • Voice control & Multi window features ; • Highly responsive touch screen

• Lacks USB HOST function ; • Inconsistent performance ; • Reflective screen ; • Poor sunlight visibility

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 ran pretty smooth most of the times; though it suffered a bit from occasional stutter and lags out of blue. Sometimes navigating through different apps were lag free, while the other time I noticed it took even the phonebook 3 to...
