Samsung delivered handsets to the demands of the masses.
The Korean number one smartphone manufacturer, Samsung, first answered the call for easily affordable bigger touchscreen smartphones. It produced a range of handsets with bigger screens and decent specs that are sold at affordable prices. The Galaxy Grand Duos smartphone is yet another offering from the Korean giant that comes in the medium range segment. The smartphone comprises of a massive touchscreen and offers dual-SIM functionality. In fact, Galaxy Grand Duos from Samsung caters the masses with a combination of bigger display and dual-SIM functionality.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos smartphone was launched in the latter half of 2012. The Grand Duos smartphone gathered huge success due to its medium range price. As a result, more competitor smartphone manufacturing companies started to follow the trend. Treading on similar lines, the Chinese smartphone manufacturing company, Gionee manufactured the E7 Mini smartphone.
The Gionee Elife E7 Mini can be made available at a price of $280. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos smartphone is priced at $220. Both the handsets are reasonably priced.
A decent 4.7-inch display on the Gionee E7 Mini smartphone comes slightly short of the 5-inch display of Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos device. Despite having a smaller screen, the Gionee Elife E7 Mini phone is better than the Samsung smartphone in most other aspects. In terms of resolution, the 720p display of the Gionee device overshadows the Samsung handset, having a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Moreover, the IGZO technology equipped capacitative touchscreen of the Elife E7 Mini caters the user with a superior viewing experience as compared to the average looking touchscreen of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. The Samsung handset does not incorporate the Super AMOLED or IPS technology.
Both smartphone manufacturing companies equip their respective handsets with their own edition of user interface. In fact, both the handsets do not come equipped with the Android stock OS version. Meanwhile, the TouchWiz UI provides a common technology as seen in other Samsung products. The Samsung smartphones are very popular with the masses. Therefore, the Galaxy Grand Duos smartphone is not a difficult to handle handset.
Conversely, the Gionee smartphone consists of both the Amigo 2.0 and the Android 4.2.2 OSs. Both devices lack the latest 4.4 version OS support. Nonetheless, the Samsung device was shipped with version 4.1 OS, which later was updated to the Android 4.2 OS.
However, performance wise, the Samsung smartphone was average. The dual-core processing unit set to run at 1.2GHz speed, along with a general graphic chipset powers the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. Meanwhile, the Gionee device encompasses a Mediatek based chipset. In addition, an Octa-Core processing unit and a Mali graphic chipset ensures decent working of the handset. The Gionee E7 Mini is not blazingly fast with respect to performance.
Both the Elife E7 Mini and Galaxy Grand Duos smartphones are well-equipped devices, in terms of connectivity. Regardless, the Samsung smartphone beats the Gionee smartphone in the connectivity arena. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos provides additional connectivity, featuring Wi-Fi and DLNA hotspot features along with the standard Bluetooth and USB features.
