The Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 is a dual SIM budget device and a successor of the Galaxy S Duos. The Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 isn’t an entirely new product as it is more like the single SIM variant of the Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus.

The highlight feature of the Samsung Galaxy S Duos is the Two-in-One _ Dual SIM functionality. Unlike most Dual SIM smartphones that can only receive a call from one of the SIM Card, the Galaxy S Duos can receive a call from SIM 2 even when you are on a call on SIM 1.

Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 Technical Specifications


Display Size: 4.0 inches

Display Type: TFT capacitive touchscreen

Screen Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 233 ppi

Screen Protection: None

The display specifications of the Galaxy S Duos 2 are the typical that you will find on most Samsung budget Smartphones. The Galaxy S Duos 2 display lacks any kind of protection and thus a screen protector will be a necessity to keep nasty scratches at bay.


Frame Dimensions: 121.5 x 63.1 x 10.6 mm

The Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 features a petite frame which is a bit smaller than the one you will find on the Galaxy S3 Lite. Just like I mentioned above, the Galaxy S Duos looks a lot like the Galaxy Trend and one can easily mistake the one for the other.


Operating System: Android 4.4.2

CPU: Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9

RAM: 768 MB

Internal Memory: 4 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 64 GB

A Dual-Core CPU for the Samsung Galaxy S Duos doesn’t look out of place and gets the job done. The CPU will, however, gray out when compared to the plethora of recently unveiled budget devices that sport powerful Quad-core CPUs.


Rear Camera: 5 MP

Secondary Camera: VGA

LED Flash: Yes

It’s a rather basic multimedia affair with the Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2. Yes, a 5MP rear camera is okay, but the VGA selfie camera is definitely a deal breaker.

Selfies are kinda important at this age and the grainy selfies you post on Instagram will struggle to get the double taps. Samsung has, however, rode flawlessly on the Selfie wave, and recently unveiled both the Galaxy Prime and the Galaxy A line, which both feature a smooth multimedia experience.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 1500 mAh

Extras: Dual SIM

Battery performance has often been the Achilles heel for most Samsung budget smartphones. A 1500 mAh battery capacity for a smartphone that boasts the Two-in-One _ Dual SIM feature doesn’t sound right.

However, the battery experience of a device depends on your actual usage and squeezing out a day out of the Samsung Galaxy Duos is probable.
