Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos smartphone with 5.00-inch 480x800 display powered by 1.2GHz processor alongside 1GB RAM and 8-megapixel rear camera.
Galaxy Grand DUOS feels very comfortable to hold in your hands as it is abit thin. The device feels pretty solid to hold. The back texture on the device has been changed to a textured background. At the front of the device we can see the front camera, level sensors, speakergrill, homebutton and of course the 5.0” screen. The volume rocker of the device are located on the left side of the device, the powerbutton is located on the right side. On the top of the device there is the 3.5mm headset plug-in hole. On the back of the device there is a LED flashlight, speaker and the 8MP camera sensor. The complete device has been made out of plastic giving it a premium feeling.
The Samsung Grand DUOS uses Samsung’s own Nature UX interface. One of the smart functions the Galaxy Grand DUOS does have is Smart Stay. Smart Stay is able to detect if you’re using the device or not by monitoring the front camera. This way the screen can switch quicker between on and off. It also makes sure the screen won’t turn off unexpectedly because of the set screen timeout. Another smart feature of the Galaxy Grand DUOS is Multi-Window. The fact that the screen of the device is pretty big combined with the Multi-Window feature makes it able to open two windows on your screen at the same time. This is great if you like multitasking. Multi-Window works pretty well in our opinion. The Galaxy Grand has a screen resolution of 480×800 pixels, which can sometimes make the icons look pretty large.
The Galaxy Grand DUOS uses a 5.0” LCD screen with a resolution of 480×800 pixels. Because this resolution is pretty low, the pixels per inch (PPI) are also a bit lower than usual. The PPI of this device is 187 pixels per inch.
The 8MP back camera can take excellent pictures at a maximum resolution of 3264×2448 pixels. The Galaxy Grand DUOS allows Full HD filming as well. The back camera can take pictures in a lot of modes. One of these modes is the brightness. By adjusting the brightness, you might be able to take even better pictures with the camera. Some different landscape modes are included by Samsung as well. Other modes worth mentioning are the Smile, Burst and Panorama modes. For Panorama photos the maximum angle of the pictures is 180 degrees. We hope the next update will support 360 degrees photos for the Panorama mode.
Samsung has used an excellent battery in the Galaxy Grand DUOS device. The capacity of this battery is 2100mAH; enough to cover a full day of intensive use of this device. The standby time of the Galaxy Grand DUOS is very good.
The Galaxy Grand features an 1.2 GHz dual-core processor which is fast enough to give the end user an enjoyable experience for daily usage.
