Samsung Galaxy Grand I9080 Review

Samsung has recently announced two new smart phones, one of which is the Samsung Galaxy Grand I9080. Unlike its variant, the Samsung Galaxy Grand I9082, the I9080 model allows only a single sim to be used. This is the only difference between these two variants by Samsung. The rest of the features are the same. This makes the I9080 model cost slightly less than its counterpart.

The Galaxy Grand is actually “Grand”, true to its name! This smart phone looks impressive, having dimensions of 5.65 x 3.03 x 0.38 inches. The touch screen also has an impressive size of 5.0 inches, which puts it in the boots similar to the ones of Galaxy Note II. However, to break the heart, it is just a simple capacitive touch screen. It is a little disappointing to find out that Samsung has not incorporated a Super AMOLED touch screen like the other members of the Samsung Galaxy smart phones family.

Yet more disappointing, rather shocking, is the resolution of the screen. It is unbelievable that Samsung has created a luxuriant and impressive cell phone with such a low screen resolution with a poor pixel density of 187 PPI. Perhaps, Samsung Galaxy Grand would have done better with a touch screen smaller than 5.0 inches.

On the other hand, Samsung has maintained the quality of the camera, which is just as impressive as the cameras of the other Samsung Galaxy smart phones. It is an 8 MP camera with 3264×2448 pixels contributing towards a great resolution. Several other features are also available for enhancing the quality of your pictures. You can take awesome pictures by using the LED flash, autofocus, touch focus, face detection as well as the smile detection features. The secondary front camera is also great. It is a 2 MP camera. However, unlike many of the expensive, or more appropriately “Grand” smart phones, the video quality is not HD. This is another rather disappointing piece of information.

However, with respect to the operating system, there are no further disappointments. Samsung Galaxy Grand I9080 has an Android operating system version 4.1.2, the JellyBean. Moreover, the processor is dual core with a speed of 1.2 GHz. Although this is not a great speed, it is still good enough.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand I9080 smart phone provides all the other common features, which all smartphones offer, such as a Wi-Fi connectivity, social networks integration, Bluetooth, document viewer, image and video editor and many other useful as well as fun applications and software programs.

The price of the I9080 smart phone has not been revealed yet. It will most probably be an expensive purchase with all the features and dimensions it possesses. However, due to some of the qualities that it lacks, such as good screen resolution, it can be predicted that Samsung compromised on those features to make it fall within an affordable price range.
