Samsung Galaxy Grand review

 

Note in size, but not overly impressive

Large screen ; Advanced features ; Jelly Bean

Low-res display ; No NFC ; Availability low

We've not got anything approaching a price or the markets the Samsung Galaxy Grand is coming to, but if it's the good ones at a low price, some users could certainly be attracted.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos Review

 

Samsung Galaxy Grand enters a pretty interesting marketing niche – people eventually eager for a big-screen smartphone that might not break the bank. The 5” Galaxy Grand skimps on features like HD screen resolution and internal memory to reach that...

Dual SIM device with two-source voice and data usage ; Good pictures and video

We thought we'll be throwing up as soon as we see 480x800 WVGA resolution on a 5” screen, but in reality it is pretty usable for everyday tasks. The rest of the specs are adequate as we have a decent dual-core processor, a well-performing 8 MP camera,...

Good performance ; Large suite of Samsung content ; Good camera ; Solid build

Better phones available for cheaper price ; Display has a yellow tinge to it

Samsung Galaxy Grand Review

 

Samsung arguably kickstarted the phablet scene with the first Galaxy Note, and kept the momentum going with their Galaxy Note II, but since then there’s...

To be honest, as soon as I saw the WVGA resolution on that 5 inch screen, I thought it’d really bug me. Turns out though it’s actually not too bad for every day tasks. It’s not as great as a 720p or 1080p display ofcourse, but then again this is...
