EXPERT REVIEWS

INTRODUCTION

Samsung has achieved such a mammoth status that its brand value is comparable to Apple now. Samsung has been able to successfully capture a decent market share of smartphone users. Just like Apple loyalists, Samsung has got its fan following too. The best part about Samsung smartphones is the fact that they have plenty of smartphones available in all price variants. Adding to its budget segment of smartphones, Samsung, has announced is “Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Plus” smartphone. It is believed that that the smartphone would be budget friendly and offer decent specifications. So let’s see how this smartphone might turn out to be in real life.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

If you are looking for a super stylish smartphone then this phone is not for you. Samsung has gone with its much used design strategy and would manufacture yet another smartphone which would remain undistinguishable in sea of Samsung smartphones. It is believed that phone has a rectangular design with slightly curved edges. The phone would feature with a physical home button and two soft touch capacitive buttons. The external dimensions of the phone is expected to be 144.8 (H) x 72.1 (W) x 8.9 (T) mm, which seems to be reasonable. There is no information as to how much the phone might weigh but we believe that the phone would not be that heavy. A 5.0 – inches IPS LCP capacitive touchscreen would be provided in the phone that would provide a screen resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It is believed that the screen would house approximately 220 ppi pixel density, thus giving the phone a decent display. With the current specifications one can expect a decent display and that’s about it. You cannot expect a remarkable display but the display won’t disappoint you either.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

According to the online reports, the phone should feature a 1.4 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A53 processor which would be backed by a MediaTek MT6737 chipset. The current specs would be enough in providing a smooth less functioning of the phone but one may not expect the phone to play heavy games and videos. A Mali-T720 MP2 GPU is expected to come with the phone, which would be enough to play light games easily. With the current specs, if heavy graphic intensive 3D games are played, then massive frame drop and lag might be observed. A 2GB RAM is also expected to come with the phone, which would be useful for users when multi-tasking. It is believed that the phone would be having internal storage of 16GB which could be further expanded up to 128GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone shall run on Android platform and might run on Android OS version 6.0 i.e. Marshmallow. The phone shall support dual SIM and is expected to run on 4G networks too.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

According to the leaked specs online, the phone shall feature an 8-MP primary camera that would be backed by a CMOS image sensor . The camera shall be supported by autofocus and LED flashlight. The primary camera shall have Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. The shooting modes would include Continuous Shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). The front shooter is expected to sport a 5-MP camera. Video recording could be done by the camera at frames like 1920x1080 @ 30 fps. With the current specifications one can expect the camera to work decently. The images captured by the camera could turn out to be impressive, however the low light performance might be a little fuzzy. Loudspeaker would be provided in the phone and so would be a 3.5 mm audio jack. We believe that the loudspeaker would turn out to be loud enough, just like other smartphones of Samsung.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

It is believed that a 2600 mAh Li-Ion battery would be provided in the phone and the best thing about the battery would be the fact that it would be user replaceable. With the current battery specs, we can expect the battery to work for a day with moderate to heavy usage. Talking about the range of connectivity options offered by the phone, it should come with a Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, mobile hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.0, A-GPS, GLONASS, FM Radio and microUSB 2.0. It is rumored that no fingerprint scanner would be provided in the phone. The other sensors that are expected by the phone includes, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.
