Quick Specifications :
Samsung has launched Galaxy Grand 2, the successor to the extremely successful Galaxy Grand Duos Smartphone. Grand 2 has 5.25 inch high definition IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 720X1280 pixels resolution. The device comes with 1.2GHz Quad core high speed processor and 1.5 GB of RAM, which boosts the speed of the device four times more than other dual core CPU phones. The Grand 2 Smartphone is being said faster device than compared to its predecessor Grand duos. The latest Grand mobile runs on newest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system.
If we check its camera quality, then we obtain marvelous quality pictures and videos. It comes with 8 Megapixel rear camera along with LED flash and 1.9 Megapixel front facing camera.
In the world of competition, the design has become priority for every manufactures and Samsung always tried to do something creative with its handsets. But now Samsung has managed same display profile in Grand 2 like previous Grand. The small bezels give a good look. The tech geeks expected faux leather finish on back side of Grand 2 like Galaxy Note 3 that disappointed very much every one. While see it from distance, it makes feel like leather but it’s just a textured plastic.
We can see growth at size and price that flaunts Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution, but HD is really amazing in my view. Here, we can easily see the difference between its predecessor grand’s resolution (800x480p) and grand 2’s HD resolution.
Here is extremely disappointing aspect about Grand 2 –poor sunlight legibility. Corning does not include the Grand 2 in the list of Gorilla Glass display phone, however there is good scratch resistant glass on the phone and we found it very protective in our test (carrying in pocket with key and dropping also).
In Grand, we always faced performance issues regarding hanging and slow speed. Now the company tried to get away such a problem, and has powered the 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor to boost the performance. Now you can install heavy games and Android apps on your device but the performance will never desperate you. The company has packed 1.5 GB RAM that is enough for a multitasking Smartphone. In our test, the phone is working very smoothly and quickly.
Samsung unveiled this Smartphone with 8 GB internal storage to store application and multimedia files. You can expand it up to 64 GB with the help of micro SD card. The 2.4 GB storage already filled up with preloaded apps and TouchWiz UI and still available for user.
