Great Phone for the price.

I was confused whether to take Moto Atrix 2 or S advance.The reason why I went with S advance is that due to lack of proper support from Moto in India(Samsung are having a good time in India and are releasing phones even before US) and 16 GB internal memory.

Build Quality:
It is Usual Samsung design,may be all plasticky but very light weight,and there is not sufficient grip and little slippery on the sides(An case would solve this and of course you would definitely buy a case to protect your...

Revival of a gem : Jellybean update has made it the best device for 14k price.

If you do a factory reset just before and after installing the JB or any other major update, everything'll be fine.
Make sure you have backed up all your data before doing so.

This phone is awesome at 14000 price band.
No other company is giving away a Dual Core A9 at this price and other features.
Only Lumia 620 matches the hardware and specs with its dual core krait.
Other competitors :

Xperia U : Less RAM, No expandable memory,less internal memory VGA front cam, battery issues, mediocre ...

True Unbiased Hands on Review

I purchased this smartphone a week back from flipkart for 13K (500 Cashback Offer) ...
As usual, Flipkart rocked with its package and delivery excellence...
Immediately updated to Jellybean via Kies ...
After using it for a week and comparing it with S Duos which is priced at 12K,
1) The Super AMOLED Screen is the greatest advantage of this smartphone (remember 13K)... Pictures, Videos and Games are very crisp and clear that Canvas HD should rename itself to Canvas Poor SD... It easily...

Excellent Features for a Midrange Device - Unimpressive Build quality - Poor pricing

It would have been a really great device, if Samsung has given little more attention to their So call Premium Mid-range Device.

A. 1.3MP front camera - Very good in fact for a Phone of the class
B. 5.0MP Rear Camera - As expected from a Midrange device - But a pretty decent one
C. 16GB RAM - Again Very good for a Device of its class.
D. A web browser with Flash Divx and all other codec Support - Excellent
E. Super AMOLED Display - Not really a good One - Should have been Super AMOLED Plus - ...

This phone shines after Jelly Bean update

The BEST Android phone that you can currently get under Rs. 15,000!

I was in a big confusion to choose the right one among Xolo X1000, Galaxy Grand Duos and Galaxy S Advance. I removed Xolo X1000 from the list because my experience with the previous Xolo phone (A700) was very bad.

I had almost finalized the order for Galaxy Grand Duos but decided to go with this phone at the very last minute because of its 4" screen compared to Grand's giant 5" screen with the same resolution. The Grand als...

The best in its range..

As like others I was also in so much dilemma to go with which phone, as my shortlisted phones were:
1: Desire X
2: Xperi Sola
3: S Advance
Finally after so much research and comparisons I bought S Advance, and I must say this is an amazing device.
Some key features are like it has very smooth UI and very crisp display, It has more than 300 MB RAM free all the time and have 2GB memory for installing apps and have 11.31 GB storage for data.
So when I compared the three (S Advance, Xperia Sola...

Strategic release

Did anyone realise why samsung released this phone at about 24k at this time? There were whole lot of rumours about drop in prices of galaxy s2 upon the release of s3 and which was quiet logical and justified. Had this phone not been launched, s2 would have come in the same price bracket as this one. But samsung knows there is a lot of name and fame in the kitty of samsung for s2 and they want to churn out last penny out of the market with s2 widout dropping it's prices. So they launched s ad...

Detailed Re-review for Advanced Users

The screen is highly responsive as like any flagship phone.
The phone looks premium in hand but if you remove the back cover, you'll find it very cheap.
The Speaker of phone is loud enough to hear but vibrator motor isn't much strong.
The stock video player is simple but it supports all free formats including the Matroska i.e. .MKV format which is the latest among all open standard free formats.
The biggest plus point of phone is its display. I had compared it with Micromax canvas HD(720p HD ...
