Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2

70% Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 review: The Grand refresh is not worth its Rs 24,890 price tag
Source: English
It’s an ever tougher sell when you consider the Lenovo Vibe X, which is superior in almost every respect, retailing for the same price. To sum up, the Grand 2 is a worthy upgrade to the Grand Duos but poor pricing, tough competition and lack of some crucial features might hurt its sales. At its current market price, you’re better off with the Lenovo Vibe X.

60% Review: Samsung GALAXY Grand 2
Source: English
The GALAXY Grand 2 is a massive improvement over its predecessor. This handset has a good screen, camera, and battery life. However, priced at Rs 22,000, the phone’s performance is not consistent. Many will find its interface garish. The design is done-to-death and the handset doesn’t feel premium compared to the similarly priced phones. So if you’re planning to buy a phone in price bracket, the Lenovo Vibe X (Rs 23,000) and Nokia Lumia 920 (Rs 24,000) are definitely better options.

It's no surprise that competition in the Rs. 17,000 to 22,000 range is hot right now. Features that were once exclusive to phones twice that price are tempting users, and multinational brands now find themselves competing with increasingly well-made phones from local manufacturers. Still, most phones in this price range tend to advertise a single trick such as a full-HD screen or new processor, while neglecting to mention that these things aren't very useful in isolation. In contrast, Samsung has delivered a well-rounded product that seems to strike a very sensible balance between price, features and performance. Large screens on phones at this price point are no longer crippled by low resolutions, and "quad-core processors" actually have enough meat on their bones to deliver superior performance.
