Thank God they upgraded the RAM to 1.5GB
30 May, 2014
i had used a Samsung Grand 1st generation for 8 months.
Samsung has a biiiig problem, they pre-install so many bloatwares on their phone that any amount of RAM is not good enough.
Worst still, you can't even uninstall them.
Go for Samsung if your concern is:
-Service Centers across India
-lots of choices for Cover, cases etc
-Very good Camera, though has some 0.5 second lag between clicking and capturing, but photos comes really good.
-Plush feel, leather touch, xtra flip cover
Avoid this phone if,
- you want best of the class performance as you require 2GB RAM for that
-phone gets slower and slower as you keep using. you may get frustrated and do 'factory reset' but that's not a viable solution. after 6 months of usage, the camera app takes 6-12 seconds to open up, and if you save photos in memory card, that will take similar time to open up. that means if you want to capture a quick moment, this is not the phone for.
-poor battery life, no matter how bigger battery samsung offers, they are bad with battery management, you may have to charge your phone 2 times for heavy usage.
