Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo is one of those affordable solutions that Samsung launched the last year. And now the Galaxy Grand series is followed by the new member Galaxy Grand Maxx but yes Galaxy Grand New is still priced pretty low and carries the mid range hardware,
Galaxy Grand Neo will appeal to those who consider the purchase of Grand 2 but would find it too expensive or meaningless. For example, if the owner of a brand new handset is going to become a schoolboy, far from the high-tech people aged or simply saving and undemanding buyer. If we are talking about the price, we will talk directly about competitors. For the similar price of Grand 2, alternative to Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo can only be very unpretentious smartphones with dubious characteristics or pedigreed Chinese. However, the latter is difficult to put on a par with the Neo, as recognizable logo as an alternative set of Asian characters unpronounceable for many more valuable advantageous combination of cost and quality.

As for the design, is usual rounded, plastic, frame “chrome” on the perimeter. The housing Grand Neo similar to most other models of Samsung – one on the front and a pair of physical touch buttons below the screen, on top of the speaker, front camera and a couple of sensors. On the sides are separated power button and volume controls, top and bottom are reserved for the headphone jack and port micro-USB. Textured, slightly rough plastic removable rear cover cut through a series of holes for the flash, the camera lens and dynamics, lower – the manufacturer’s logo. On the one hand it is boring and can be attributed to the shortcomings of the other – but do not forget about the cost of the smartphone.
The advantage of ergonomics will be in favor of the latter if we compare the Grand 2 and Neo. Even with the larger screen sizes, it lies in the hand in better state – not tries to slip, and in different places of the display a little more convenient to reach.
In terms of filling Galaxy Grand Neo gives enough powerful performance but don’t expect very fast. It will master the most popular applications and undemanding games, but mobile gamers should look to something more powerful and expensive. Gigabytes of RAM combined with stale processor make themselves felt, and even a modest display resolution of the situation is not particularly saves.
Speaking of resolution, the picture on the screen is obviously grainy 800×480 pixels on the sides of five-inch screen is very small in 2014. However, we must again look at the cost and to provide potential buyers of the phone, so as not to put a cross on it. And another affordable solution that Samsung is going to launch very soon is Galaxy Tab 5, but in this case it would be tablet not a smartphone.
