The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 with LTE is a big screened device that offers blazingly fast mobile Internet at a selling price that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. In terms of physical design this device has a thin bezel and has a slightly curved shape. It also sports a fine texture finish which makes it feel more like a premium device.

In front you will find the physical home button and the beautiful 5.25-inch display capable of 720p resolution. On top of the display is the proximity sensor, earpiece, and the 1.9MP front facing camera.

At the back you will find the 8MP camera located at the top center with the LED flash and loudspeaker flanking both sides.

In terms of performance, despite using a midrange Snapdragon 400, the device still operates smoothly. This might be due to the quad-core processor used combined with 1.5GB of RAM. In several benchmarking tests conducted on the device the results show that it is close in performance to the Moto G.

  1. Well since Apple is potentially suing Samsung to the tune of $2 billions or more, guess Samsung has to make more money.

  2. I hate to disagree with you, but there are plenty of other phones that are far superior to this, even on a tight budget!

  3. It is definitely over priced. That is what Samsung does to make money. Seems like they are following the Apple way!

  4. Yeah, that is what I’ve done on my G2. It would be really good if they would release a Play Store Edition of all their flagship devices.

  5. LG makes some really good efforts, but I think a lot of people, including myself, get turned off from the very clunky and crowded UI, though I guess that can be fixed by flashing a ROM!

  6. And LG too. The G2 and now the G Pro 2 are just awesome devices. They just a bit more developer and custom ROM love.

  7. Indeed. What pisses me off more is that they have overpriced it so much. It is an outrage if you ask me.

  8. Heh. I just wish Sony’s devices would gain a bit of traction in the U.S., I’d love to have some of their new ones on AT&T!

  9. Classic Samsung if you ask me. Trying to hard to bring out new stuff, but not work on the basics.

  10. Samsung lost it quite some time ago. This is nuts. LTE has become the standard for network speeds, so making a device that expensive because it has LTE is pretty ridiculous and a bad money grab.

  11. That’s a good phone for people looking for a good mid range smartphone which is light on the wallet.
