Samsung Galaxy Grand Pro Reviews

GSMArena‘s review Edit

Going by the sheer screen size of the Galaxy Grand, Samsung is obviously looking to cater to a crowd that wants the most recent trend in smartphones. The catch is that it's a certain set of users that would love the extra real estate but not pay a premium price. Now, throw a dual-SIM into the mix and you end up with a target audience that will be hard-pressed to find something better than the Grand. But... Not paying a flagship price entails compromise. In the Galaxy Grand, it's the size of a ... well... five-inch screen. The image quality isn't bad, but is far from top notch either. The contrast is decent if unspectacular, but more importantly, the WVGA resolution gets stretched pretty thin on this kind of screen diagonal. The Galaxy Grand also won't give you some of the extra goodies that are a part of a flagship's standard equipment, like NFC. Samsung's first-gen phablet, the Galaxy Note, has everything the Grand has (besides the dual-SIM support obviously), and then some. It will gladly offer a larger, crisper Super AMOLED display of 800 x 1280 pixels resolution, which is covered with Gorilla Glass to boot. Keep in mind that the Note, even after all the price cuts, is still notably more expensive than the Galaxy Grand and has no dual-SIM version in case that's what you are after.

Phone Arena‘s review Edit

We thought we'll be throwing up as soon as we see 480x800 WVGA resolution on a 5” screen, but in reality it is pretty usable for everyday tasks. The rest of the specs are adequate as we have a decent dual-core processor, a well-performing 8 MP camera, and the ability to add storage via the microSD card slot. Thus if you have been longing for a huge screen phone that manages two SIM cards at once, it is not that you'll have many alternatives to the Grand DUOS anyway. Combine this fact with the chassis recognition and respect Samsung's Galaxy line has earned lately, and the only variable in the success equation for the Grand DUOS market niche is the retail price, which hovers around the $400 mark without carrier subsidies. A homegrown alternative is the Samsung Galaxy S Duos, which is more compact and about the same price, but has a 5 MP camera. If you want an even smaller screen and price, you can check out the Sony Xperia E dual.
