Samsung should decrease prices keeping in view of market competition. Personally I am not satisfied with Samsung. I own a galaxy grand duos which costed me rs 20000. But the phone just received one major update from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2. The 4.2.2 update is buggy one. Samsung should atleast give updates for phones that cost rs 20000. I am not gonna buy a Samsung phone again.


You do not know about the shameless limitations of android 4.4 and later.

You cannot use any third party apps to store, copy, delete or rename any files in / to the memory card in android 4.4 and later. Also you cannot control the flight mode by any third party apps like PROFILE SCHEDULER+ in android 4.3. Keep this in mind and be happy that you are using 4.2.2. I think you can move the apps to the SD card in 4.2.2. Then why do you want to upgrade?.


atleast they should be giving proper 4.2.2 update. their 4.2.2 update is full of bugs. so that phone hangs a lot. so i reverted back to 4.1.2



next is, being NOKIA!! LOL…….. 🙂
