Samsung was one of the first companies to really run with the idea of big-screen phones. Others had tried before and failed, but Samsung managed to turn its original Galaxy Note into a massive success. Big screens have since percolated down to the more budget-oriented phones, but these usually have lower resolutions and weaker processors, negating many of the advantages phones that size. Samsung's own Galaxy Grand was meant to appeal to people who wanted a big screen just for the sake of having a big screen, without paying flagship-level prices.

  • Memory too less and speaker quality is also not impressive
    Sahil Bhandari (May 8, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    1. Battery life is a major problem with this phone,battery drains very fast. 2. Size of this phone is big, due to which difficult to carry. 3. Speaker quality is not impressive as we demand from the mob phone in this price range. 4. Phone gets heated up while using 3G or while playing games. 5. Memory is very less if you are a game lover,it has 8GB inbuilt memory and in all samsung devices there is a problem that every software or game you install it will use only use phone memory,you cannot transfer any game or installed applications in memory card. 6. Phone get hanged very offenly and takes time in opening applications and even the gallery.

  • A really must buy product.
    Sagar Sharma (May 9, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The Samsung Galaxy Grand was a phone which really lacked in many aspects and gave a consumer dissatisfaction. But if you talk about its successor the Grand II it really is amazing on colours, performance, camera,after sales service. It would not disappoint in any way. If people say about hanging problems I would say a complete NO to it. The phone actually does not hang, yea if you intentionally fill it with apps I would say that any phone would hang in that case. Battery still is a aspect where the phone lags behind, but would not be a reason not to buy. Go for The Grand II.
