Grand Review: Samsung Galaxy Grand with 5inch Display, 8MP Camera and Runs on Android Jelly Bean For Rs 20,000: Is It Good ?

After The Review of iBall Andi 4.5q We Bring You the Review of Another Dual Core Device called The Samsung Galaxy Grand. It has a Best Sales Figure for Samsung for the Segment of under 20K. It has Been Launched Against The Micromax Canvas HD and with that day of Launching its Giving a Tough Fight for Canvas HD But Now Time has Changed Micromax has Now Launched Canvas 4 and Galaxy Grand is No More Seeing in the Competition with Quad-core but Many Of Buyers Still Opting For Galaxy Grand, Lets Check The Reason Behind it.

Overall Design

Almost all of the Samsung Galaxy models have the same design. The handset is sleek (9.6mm thickness) and weighs 161 grams.  The rear side is glossy Blue with finger resistance coating and the front side surrounding the screen is also Blue color. The sides are Metallic Blue. The Grand is available in white and metallic blue.

On the top side there is the 3.5mm jack, on left the volume rockers, on the side right the power/ lock button and on the bottom side there is the mic and micro USB port.

 Display And Multimedia                       

It Flaunts a 5 inch Display, the 5 inch screen is simple TFT screen not an AMOLED screen and the display resolution is 800×480 pixels. For the price the resolution is too low. They should have given a slightly better resolution. This is a bit disappointing as other smartphones in the same price segment already offer much better display than the Galaxy Grand. It has smooth and responsive Touch. Viewing Angle is Not Too Good.

The unique feature is the Multi Window option wherein you can run applications simultaneously within multiple windows. For example on half of the screen you can run the browser and on the other half you can chat with your friends via Google Talk or even view a movie.

Specification And Hardware

The Galaxy Grand is a Dual-Sim Smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Grand is Powered By 1.2GHz dual Core ARM Cortex A9 Processor with Broadcam VideoCore IV HW GPU. It Support 1GB Ram For Smooth Interference. 1GB of Ram You get 400Mb Free. The Handset Run On Jelly Bean 4.1.2 OS. We Tried To Play Some of the Games Such as Subway Surfer, Temple Run 2 which Work Smooth in This Device. Sorry We Cant Get More Time To Test The High End Games But With The Performance We Can Say It Does Can Play High End Games Smoothly, Try it Yourself!.

Lets Talk About It Storage Part were You Get 8Gb Of Internal Storage Of Which 3.9GB is Allocated For Apps And ( 3.8GB available ) there is No Other Internal Phone Storage. You Cannot Install Apps on external SD Card But You Can Expand Your External Storage to 64GB with Micro SD Card.
The Benchmark Result are as follow :-

  • Quadrant Benchmark: 3471
  • Antutu Benchmark: 12204
  • Nenamark 2: 58.5
  • Multi Touch: 5


The Camera Quality Really Good As Samsung Known For Its Camera Quality. There is 8mp Autofocus Rear Camera and 2mp Front Camera For Video Calling. The Camera Quality Is Great Even at Night But Not Too Good In Day as if Sometimes You Get Blurry clicks For That It is Important to Keep The Flash in Auto Or On Mode Other Than Camera is Great. 

The Handset Can Record Video in 1080p resolution at 30fps. There is No Continuous AutoFocus option So when Shooting video you will Need To tap The Screen To focus as Required. Check The Still Images at the End Of Article.


Battery - The Battery is Of 2100 mAh Capacity. You Will Easily Get Over a Day backup Time with Moderate Use. There is Power Saving Option in Setting Which You Can Get To Juice Up The Battery Performance. But  Be Careful If You Have Not Using Power Saving Option The Battery can Goes Nil at 10% of Level. 

Others -  The in-Call speaker And Loudspeaker Is Loud And Clear. There are 3 Sensor Namely Proximity, G-Sensors and Light Sensor. This is Dual Sim Handset With 3G Support, there is Built in WiFi, Bluetooth as well as Tethering, Hotspot etc.


A Very Good Phone with Lots Of Unique Feature But The Justice Is Not Done By Its Price. Samsung Galaxy Grand is a Good Buy But Not Many can Afford it At 21k Price Tag. Recently Intex Has Launched Aqua i7 With 21K price Tag. We cant Say What has happen to Them ? The Price Should Be About 16,000 to 17,000 will Make It Best In This Segment.

There is a Good News For The Buyers Who Are Opting For Samsung Galaxy Grand. Now You Will Get a Premium Stereo headset Free Worth Rs 2290  and Plus 2 Flip Cover Black And White You Can Visit Online Store and buy it for Rs 20800 or you can visit Near Samsung Store And Buy it For Under 20K. The Display Is The Most weakest Think Present on Galaxy Grand for This Price Samsung Should Give AMOLED Screen or atleast a HD Display. Now You Decide Either To Give Thumb Up Or Thumb Down.
