Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 S7582 - Review

For Dual SIM users at very reasonable price.

Launching successor of an existing gadget is not a new thing in the smartphone world. It's there since the very beginning of the mobile phone market. But successors those launched in the recent years have made huge waves in the market. Making no difference to the pattern, South Korean smartphone giant, Samsung has rolled out the successor of the Galaxy S Duos, the Galaxy S Duos 2. Placed in the mid-sized smartphone class, the gadget is certainly an advanced option for those who simultaneously handle both personal and official SIMs.

The Galaxy S Duos 2 doesn't look odd. In fact it carries the same design of its predecessor and has the same design structure of other devices in the Galaxy series. Still, it doesn't offer a premium look of its high-end devices. Alright, the Duos S 2 is placed in the mid-size smartphone class and priced very reasonably. So you can't blame Samsung here. But, the 'Duos' labeling at the front side of the gadget is really irritating. Samsung should cut off this badging from all its Dual SIM gadgets. Should such branding is necessary to identify whether the gadget is powered by Dual SIM or not? I don't think so.

There is no difference in the display specifications. It comes with the same 4 inches, TFT capacitive touchscreen, with 480 x 800 pixels of resolution and 223 ppi. It's pretty fine for such class gadget. You can surf on it even under sunlight.

Processor and Performance
This time Samsung has taken things to the next level. Powering with a Dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, the S Duos successor does perform better. Further, it has been backed up by 768 MB RAM, which seems lesser. The South Korean firm should have ensured at least 1 GB RAM, which would have made the gadget to be a stunner.

Operating System
It runs on Android OS, v4.2 (Jelly Bean), where the predecessor still makes things with the outdated Ice Cream Sandwich. It is not likely to get updated to KitKat soon since the S Duos 2 is only a mid-sized smartphone.

There is enough space for you to store your data. The S Duos 2 has 4 GB inbuilt storage out of which 1.8 GB is usable, while the left is preloaded with Apps and all. You can expand memory via a microSD card up to 64 GB by inputting the memory card in the given memory card slot.

No changes are found here. It comes with the same 5 MP rear cam with an LED flash and a VGA cam at front for video calling purpose. The camera has already been proven. So you need not to worry about the quality of the pics and videos.

Battery Backup
Same is the Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery as well. But, the battery backup has been improved. Now, it gives a standby of 570 hours compared to the 445 hours of its predecessor. But, talktime has disappointingly gone down in 2G. Now, it offers only 12 hours compared to 13 hours of the Galaxy S Duos.

Samsung has approached the smartphone with a very competitive pricing. Spending Rs.11k for this gadget seems worth for money. Above all, it's from Samsung, the biggest dealer in both smartphone and mobile phone markets.

If you're looking for a Dual SIM smartphone with good performance, specifications and at very affordable pricing, the Galaxy S Duos 2 might be your gadget.

Better processor
Reasonably priced

Doesn't look cool.

Battery backup is very poor in this phone. u have to charge it twice daily if net is on and a little bit of gaming. apps like subway surfer lags a bit, but still playable. u have to keep clearing the ram before playing. camera is good, even in night. flash works fine. u can use it as torch. I bought it for 9700. its a pretty decent phone I think in this price range.

why don't u move a few apps to sd card? most of them gives the option. maybe 2-3 mb remain in the phone. but that is negligible. try it in setting/application manager/click on app/move to sd card. simple.
