If you’re looking for a Dual Sim handset with decent specs’ then Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 is a big contender, it’ll definitely not keep up with the likes of S3 or iPhone 5 in performance but it has something most high-end smart phones lack. We’ve seen several phones with dual sim capability slowly replace traditional feature phones and mid-range devices but none has shown the power heavy gamers or professionals are looking for, it’s a factor most phone companies are using to market these devices as consumers continue to demand for more. Dual sim users are often grouped in two separate categories – those who don’t want to carry two handsets around but must have separate numbers for specific purposes i.e. business and personal, and those who simply have a tight budget and look to have separate providers to optimize spending. Those who fall under the latter category already have several options on their check list but the first lot hardly has enough worth consideration, S Duos is a definite match for this group.
It’s no news seeing Samsung introduce a revised version of their older products with minor variations often in size like those galaxy mini’s and features such as duos as we’ve known them, S7562 is no different of course, a few months back, its older sibling Galaxy S was a major hit but things have changed ever since. Even with addition of dual sim capability, there are hundreds of devices right now that are beyond its reach at least in terms of performance; however, its way cheaper if that makes any difference. The phone has basic specs you’d expect on a mid-range handset, it has a TFT display rather than a Super AMOLED, so expect black colors to appear grayish. TFT’s normally have a backlight that neutralizes deep blacks to look grayish unlike AMOLED displays which allow individual pixels to light themselves while switching off those responsible for black colors to maintain deep blacks. The screen resolution is notably fair, at 800×480 pixels on a 4inch panel which translates to effective 233ppi (pixels per inch); small text look sharp, browsing web pages hardly needs scrolling here and there and I bet you’d have a decent experience touring your photo gallery or playing videos on this phone.
I’d say 4GB internal storage plus the possibility of expanding up to 32GB using a MicroSD card was well thought of, I’ve seen numerous high-end smart phones with no expansion slots retail at almost double its price. Under the hood is a 1GHz processor that’s way below in comparison with other devices within its price range, expect apps to load sluggishly especially for heavy gamers or while launching those demanding apps. Galaxy S S7562duos closely resembles its older sibling, there’s a 4inch display screen on the front panel with one physical and two capacitive buttons below, on the back cover is a 5Megapixel camera and a LED flash. Something that’s disappointing on this phone is a small 1500mAh battery, dual sim handsets require twice as much power to handle two networks; therefore, expect to recharge your phone often.
