In price of construct quality, Samsung never leaves whatsoever room for complaint. The Samsung Milky Way Grand has a shiny body, which adds to its await as well as is non besides slippery either. There is a enterprise metallic strip, which surrounds the telephone on all sides as well as tin easily withstand a few falls. The dorsum panel is a flake plasticky, as well as that made me nervous sometimes acre opening it to insert my SIM cards. It is thus sparse that it feels similar it mightiness break.
There is no gap betwixt the dorsum panel as well as the inner hardware, which makes the device solid. At 161 grams, it feels a flake heavy. According to Samsung, the Milky Way Grand is but 9.6 mm thin, but it does non experience similar that. All inward all, it is a decent device vis-à-vis construct character as well as looks. The placement of the majority rocker (on the transcend left side), the powerfulness clit (on the correct manus top), a 3.5 mm jack as well as micro USB port (both on the top) are good planned.
DisplayThe Samsung Milky Way Grand has a five inch covert similar to the Micromax Canvas HD. However, it has exclusively 480 x 800 (WVGA) pixel resolution against 1280 x 720 pixel resolution of the Micromax handset. The figures are definitely against the Milky Way Grand. However, inward actual life, the results are completely inward favour of the device. I had reviewed the Canvas hard disk drive equally well, which you lot tin read here.
However, pictures as well as videos were but thus amazing on the Milky Way Grand that nosotros forgot that it has exclusively WVGA resolution. In some instances, nosotros constitute the Milky Way Grand's display fifty-fifty amend than the Canvas HD's screen. The touchscreen of Milky Way Grand operated flawlessly.
User InterfaceThis is where the Samsung Milky Way Grand beats all its competitors hands down. I would non hesitate to cite it the junior Milky Way SIII equally it has many features of the latter. As you lot plough on the power, you lot tin run across the notification bar on the top, which you lot tin push clit downward to brand adjustments without fifty-fifty unlocking the handset. There are 3 shortcut menus on the covert equally well, to which you lot tin larn straight equally you lot unlock the phone. You tin modify the shortcut menus from the settings page but you lot tin give-up the ghost on a maximum of 3 shortcut menus. You tin also give-up the ghost on intelligence as well as conditions bars on the lock screen, thus you lot don't guide keep to lock the telephone to cheque them. There are several covert lock options equally well. Unlike many other devices, its human face upward unlock characteristic also industrial plant keen as well as recognizes fifty-fifty inward depression light.
The settings card tin live accessed from the notification bar of from the capacitive buttons, which are situated but below the screen. Anyway, at that spot is a settings app, which you lot tin house on the habitation page itself.

We guide keep no qualms whatsoever regarding the photographic tv set camera of the Samsung Milky Way Grand.

You but demand to impact the expanse you lot demand to focus on as well as the photographic tv set camera volition do the rest. Colours are reproduced equally they are. The darker areas seem to live fifty-fifty to a greater extent than dark, but that could live changed a flake if you lot growth the exposure.

It gets charged fully from scratch inside i hour, but tin concur on to that accuse for a real long time. Unlike whatsoever other smartphone, nosotros had kept the WiFi hotspot on for some 4 hours as well as played games for some other 45 minutes.
Still the telephone lasted for some other 12 hours. This is incredible for a smartphone. With normal usage, involving 2-3 hours of music, an hr of WiFi/mobile information usage as well as some other hr of gaming, the Milky Way Grand tin concur on to the accuse comfortably for a twenty-four hr menstruum or more.
PerformanceThe Milky Way Grand has a 1.2 GHz dual heart processor, which is supported past times Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as well as 1 GB RAM. The combination is decent but non ultimate. The telephone managed to play games easily, as well as without much hiccup, but if you lot opened upward 2-3 apps at a time, thus the telephone shows some sluggishness, which should non occur considering that it has a 1 GB RAM. We did non human face upward the same province of affairs inward Canvas HD, but if you lot give-up the ghost on a tab on running applications, as well as unopen them when they are non inward use, thus you lot won't experience a pinch at all.
There is 8 GB internal storage inward the Milky Way Grand, which also has a slot for upward to a 64 GB micro SD card. Out of 8 GB some 4 GB is available for storage. Hence, nosotros give total marks to the Samsung Milky Way Grand vis-à-vis storage facility.
