Mobile World Congress 2014: Galaxy Grand 2 has 5.25-inch screen, Note 3 styling

1:26 /

The Grand 2 isn't quite up there with the likes of the Galaxy S5, but it's still a good-looking, powerful mobile, and could be substantially cheaper

Samsung has made another massive smartphone. Are you surprised? Neither are we. This is the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. Let's take a look at some of its features. So, let's address that size. This is a 5.25, 1280x720p resolution screen. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which Samsung thinks will make it perfect for watching movies. One use for that massive amount of screen real estate is Samsung's multi-window app, which lets you have two apps running at the same time and resize them like this. It's pretty powerful with a 1.2 gigaHertz quad core processor, while on the outside, this is an 8-megapixel camera that has loads of different modes. You get panorama, HD, and the ugly-named Beauty Face, which smoothes out any imperfections that the camera detects on your face. You get 8 gigabytes of on-board storage. But don't worry if you run out of space because there's a microSD card slot, as well. Now, this isn't Samsung's fanciest phone, but I do quite like the design. It looks good, it feels very sturdy even though it's made primarily of plastic. And if you have a look on the back, you can see the textured fake stitching effect that's also on devices like the Note 3. What do you think of the design? Let me know, and check out CNET.com for loads more from Mobile World Congress.
