Now you can efficiently manage your personal and business calls and messages as it is possible to receive calls on one SIM number while taking a call from the other. Dual SIM also offers the flexibility of selecting different billing plans for either SIM, switching between them to make the most of cheaper call and data plans.

Its vivid 5.0’’ display provides an expansive viewing experience, presenting messaging, multimedia, and Web content in brilliant color and clarity. Even with the large screen, the phone is still slim, ergonomic and comfortable to hold.

Samsung GALAXY Grand also includes SMART intuitive features that make the phone easy to use. For example,Direct Call enables users to automatically dial a call by raising the device up to the ear; while users can also shake the phone to trigger status updates, or pan it to zoom into a screen. Smart Alert shows missed events such as missed calls and new messages just by picking up the phone. Popup Video, for example, lets users watch video in a pop-up window anywhere on the screen while running other tasks and AllShare Play lets you share content across Samsung devices using a single account. All these innovative features packed into one powerful device, indeed, the Samsung GALAXY Grand is perfect for today’s busy professional.
