The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is a sequel to the popular Samsung Galaxy Grand handset launched in 2013. The Galaxy Grand posted some impressive global sales figures and was one of the crowd favorites in Kenya.
The Galaxy Grand 2 joins the horde of big screen devices by Samsung. The insatiable appetite of enormous screens by Smartphone users has driven manufacturers to slide down large displays to mid-range devices.
Here is a quick specs tour of the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2
Dimensions: 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm
Screen Size: 5.25 Inches
Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 280 ppi
Screen Protection: None
A 280 ppi screen resolution density is completely out of place on the Galaxy Grand 2. The Galaxy Grand 2 has a display size similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It is, therefore, ironic that the Samsung Galaxy Trend has a screen resolution density that is almost half to the one found in the Note 3.
Therefore, you should expect considerably lower image quality. Nevertheless, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 price advantage compensates for this inadequacy.
CPU: Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7
RAM: 1.5 GB RAM
GPU: Adreno 305
Operating System: Android OS, v4. 3
It was a smart idea to include a Quad-Core CPU for the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. It would however, been amazing if the Galaxy Grand 2 came with Android v 4.4 out of the box.
Internal Memory: 8 GB storage
Card Slot: Yes, up to 64 GB
8 GB of Internal memory is pretty much the standard for most mid-range devices.
