Samsung Galaxy S Duos review: S goes Dual

 

Dual-SIM users generally fall in one of two categories - those on a tight budget who look to optimize spending by combining carrier plans, and frequent travelers, who don't want to carry two handsets all the time.

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support ; Dual Mini-SIM slots ; 4" 16M-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen 480x800 pixels resolution ; 1 GHz ARM Cortex A5 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A chipset; 768MB of RAM...

Samsung Galaxy S Duos Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S Duos is a Galaxy S III look alike. A cheaper, plasticky, less powerful look alike. But it comes with one key feature - dual SIM support…

Dual-SIM functionality well implemented ; ICS runs fairly smoothly

Plastic on it feels very cheap ; Single-core processor is dated ; No 720p video recording

The Samsung Galaxy S Duos is first and foremost a dual-SIM Android device, and should be judged as one. Let’s make it clear - if dual-SIM is not a must for you, there are much cheaper and better options than the S Duos.
