Samsung Galaxy Grand is a mid-range smartphone that has been launched by the Samsung Corporation. The phone sports a 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a display of 480 x 800 pixels.

Spice Mobiles is an Indian-based mobile company that is part of S Mobility Ltd., which is in turn part of the Spice Group. The company has since expanded its operation to Nepal, Bangladesh, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. It aims to expand its geographical presence from Ivory Coast to Indonesia. However, as a mobile phone company based primarily in India, the company has to keep in mind the dynamic nature of their targeted market in mind. The Indian market is very price sensitive. Hence, the company has to be able to provide new and more or less the latest technology in a phone that is budget friendly. The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a phone that attempts to do just that.

The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a mid-range budget quad-core phone with a speed of 1.2 GHz. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1 GB of RAM. The phone features a 5.3-inch qHD IPS display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It is a dual-SIM phone and is 3G enabled on both SIMs, which is new.

However, the phone’s defining feature has to be its cameras. The phone features an 8 MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash. The phone also features a 5 MP front-facing wide angle secondary camera, also with auto focus. The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro is one of the first phones to feature such a powerful secondary camera especially in a budget smartphone category.

Another first in the budget smartphone category is that the phone features a 16 GB internal storage, in addition to external storage which is expandable up to 32 GB.

Due of all these mid to low-range smartphones being introduced by companies, big power houses have been forced to introduce similar mid to low-range smartphones to recapture market share. The Galaxy Grand is one such attempt by Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Grand is a mid-range smartphone that has been launched by the Samsung Corporation. The phone sports a 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a display of 480 x 800 pixels. The phone is cased in polycarbonate plastic and is rectangular in shape with curved edges similar to other Samsung phones. The phone runs on 1.2 GHz Dual-core processor and has 1 GB RAM. The phone is dual-SIM, but is also available in single SIM in some countries. The phone runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, with no words on if it can be upgraded to 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. One worth noting feature of the phone is the Multi Window, which allows users to seamlessly multi-task, without have to minimize one application and run another. The applications run side-by-side, or in this case up and down. The company has a mounted an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera, par with many smartphones available these days.
