Samsung Galaxy Grand ,the sibling of Samsung Galaxy Note II and Samsung Galaxy S3, made its way into the market last Christmas. With its exciting new features, Galaxy Grand is expected to be a tough competitor to the other smart phones that are doing well. It has already gained a huge popularity in countries like India and South Korea and will gain the attention of the masses in other countries as well in the months to follow.
Its new specifications like NFC and quad core processor is a major improvement when compared to its predecessors. The speed of this quad core processor has been increased from 1.2 GHz to1.4 GHz. A 1 GB RAM and an 8 GB internal storage will be enough to satisfy most of the users in the market. As far as this memory capacity is concerned there is no change from the previous phones released by Samsung.
The notable advantage, however, is that this phone provides the NFC which will allow the users to access the S beam and Android beam. Also, using NFC Samsung has created something called the TecTiles. This allows the users to automate certain tasks of their phone just by tapping these TecTile stickers.
This phone has a 5 inch display and this ensures that it is not threatened by other smartphones with a huge display. But a screen resolution of 800×480 is not impressive and makes it vulnerable to lose the edge to other smartphones with a superior screen resolution and clarity. Like other Samsung phones, this phone stands in the mid-range when it comes to efficient power usage and battery capacity.
Android 4.1.2 is used as the OS and it is upgradable. Galaxy Grand has made it possible to use a lot of fun apps with ease. The camera has an LED flash and auto focus features which allows the users to shoot pictures with high clarity.
Though this phone has some significant improvements, it still cannot be accepted as a mind blowing product. After using Galaxy Grand one will find that Samsung has only managed to come up with an average phone
