Pricing and Availability
Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 is now available for Rs. 10,990 and can be purchased for leading retail outlets and online websites across the country.
Samsung Galaxy S Duos is decent phone in the price range but some of the small Indian players are also doing well. In the same range we have Lava Iris 503 which has a quad core chipset in comparison to dual core on this. It has less RAM but the internal memory is the same. Coming to the screen, the smartphone comes with a 5 inch QHD IPS display having 540×960 pixels resolution. Taking Samsung as brand with such specifications, we think this device would do pretty well as it suffices for nominal needs.
