Samsung has been playing quite nice with the Duos series devices and the smartphones are selling like a hot cake.Samsung has launched the Galaxy Grand Quattro which is also titled with the name of the Galaxy Win Duos.We have already unboxed the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro and now its time for us to provide the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro Review.So if you are confused whether to go for this device or not,then you don’t need to worry anymore since we are going to discuss all the positive and negative aspects of this smartphone,so let’s start the Review.

What’s in the box:

  • Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro
  • Head Phones
  • Warranty Cards
  • User Manuals
  • Charger
  • USB Cable

Design, Display, Messaging and Hardware:

Samsung which is already in criticism with the match of its newly high end devices with the same design is facing the same situation with the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro.The phone is having the same design and along with that back was made of plastic which give a cheap look and a cheap feel to your hands.However Samsung was smart enough to proved a flip back cover which will provide a premium look to your phone when people see it.But once the phone comes in the hands then the same cheapness can be felt easily and the back cover didn’t had any sort of textures or design which will add on to the glamour of the phone.Korean Giant launched the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro only in two color options which are Black and white and also in the box we found that the charger and the datacable were of black color while the phone was white and again a bit disappointment from Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro is having a 4.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display which is 480×800 pixels in resolution and the display is quite nice and large, but it is not so much sensitive as compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and you can not use the touchscreen while wearing gloves.Samsung Galaxy Win is having a weight of 143.9 g and it is 133.3 x 70.7 x 9.7 mm in dimensions and is 9.7mm thick.Overall the phone provided quite well strengthened in the hand and looks solid and can hope that it may suffer some accidents,since we were not allowed to perform a drop test of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro.

Samsung has proved the keyboard which was quite nice and had enough space among the keys which made the typing easy.Also we felt that if you are the second person roaming on the streets with your phone and constantly chatting whether via text or some other chat applications then this keyboard is fast enough and you can perform a regular chat of couple of hours easily with  out any pain.However spelling mistakes can be there some time but there is spelling checker also.And in order to increase your speed you can use third part apps like Swype to draw through the keys and increase your typing speed by twice.

Operating System and Connectivity Features:

Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro is running on Android Jellybean and the version is 4.1.2 out of the box and with that much Androidness on the phone we can surely expect that Android’s next version 4.3 whenever it comes will surely hit the device and the device looks quite promising in getting software updates both for the OS and pre-installed apps which is very good and updating your device time ti time not only fixes the bugs but also helps in improving the performance of the device.

For connectivity this device has Wi-Fi,3G ,Bluetooth and USB.All share the app is also there.But in this price range the connectivity features are much more promising and there are 0 drop calls in our test and along with that we can easily see that the Wi-Fi signal strength was quite good and the download speed remain well when we moved away from the router in our offices and two walls were there between the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro and the router and even though the performance was quite good and we were stunned to see its connectivity features which works that much great.Like Samsung Galaxy S4 we hope that in future Samsung will provide that much of software update to it,since at this point very less amount of software features are provided in the phone and more improvisation is required in the existing features.Galaxy Grand Review is also there and is one of the toughest competitor for it.

Others:

Samsung has provided a good processor and a good camera.But what was the worst part is that you pays around Rs.17k and get a camera which doesn’t event record 720p HD videos and has 8GB on-board storage.This two features are quite devastating and in the S4 there were issues with the storage and Samsung promised that it will provide update which will allow users to install apps on there Micro SD card and looks great if that sort of update is provided for other devices also including the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro.LED flash is also there and front camera is also provided to attend video calls.With 1GB RAM,quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.2 GHz speed and it has Adreno 203 GPU it surely makes this smartphone worth for a try and the gaming experience was quite good and 0 lag was there .

 

Verdict:

In total Samsung provided a good smartphone for the consumers which is selling like a hot cake due to the brand value of Samsung Grand Phone but in some cases there are other competitors in this range which are also selling good amount.Overall a good smartphone with catch design but not different,a good 5 megapixel camera with LED flash but no HD video recording and  just 8GB storage which sounds cool but once you start installing apps then you will find difficulties in using the smartphone.With a cheap back cover feel and much more promised for  providing the future update for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro the device is priced around Rs.17,000 and is worth buy once you have kept your hands on all the devices which are being sold in this range.
