Galaxy Grand 2 has 5.25-inch screen, Note 3 stylingThe 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?
