Wrap up :
Overall specs are truly awesome according to low price tag. I would say it a pocket friendly phone which comes in compact size with affordable price tag. Battery capacity has increased more than the power of the smartphone, so Galaxy S Duos 2 lives longer in normal use, you can count on 2-3 full days. If you constantly enabled Wi-Fi and all the automatic synchronization – mail, social networks, instant messengers, used GPS-navigation, actively working with the camera, games, reading books and listening to music – a smartphone stretch more than a day, while other OS based phones discharge in daylight.
If you can spend Rs. 10,000 and want to buy a branded dual core phone, then you should buy Samsung galaxy S Duos 2.
