Samsung Galaxy Grand – Everything you want in a smartphone!

The Samsung Galaxy Grand is the start of a series of Samsung models that have revolutionized the smartphone market. Among all the Samsung smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Grand is one of the cheapest. The phone is easy on your wallet but still has all the goodies you need to stay connected and updated with today’s technology. Made from glossy plastic, the Samsung Galaxy Grand has an upper-class feel. With the traditional AMOLED HD display, the blacks are dark and deep and colours are typically vivid. Much like the Samsung Galaxy Note range, the Samsung Galaxy Grand is rectangular-shaped to allow for easy grip. A polished glass finish at the front with a gun metal plastic coating on the sides, the Samsung Galaxy Grand is easy on the eyes.

Simple but noteworthy – the Samsung Galaxy Grand

The Samsung Galaxy Grand has specs that make it worth every penny. For a start, the smartphone is powered by a Broadcom VideoCore IV with a Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU and Adreno 305 GPU running on 1GB of RAM. Although the internal storage seem a little low at 8GB, there is space for external storage up to 64GB. This combination of specs works well for everyday app uses, but is not recommended for gaming. The operating system is the Android Lollipop 4.2.2 so it is relatively smooth in performance.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand camera supports 1080p HD recording, but lacks in depth of colour and has high noise levels in low light. It is good for quick shooting and outdoor use though. There is much fun in playing around with Samsung’s camera app pre-sets and standard Samsung experience that all users love. To top it off, Samsung Galaxy Grand uses the Samsung Milk Music Player that allows access to all your music and media in the phone. Constant usage could drain the battery, but the Samsung Galaxy Grand can last up to a day on a single charge with continuous use of the phone. As an entry-level phone, the Samsung Galaxy Grand is a versatile handset that you could consider without the added price tag.
