As we reported, Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo is now on sale in the Indian market. The phone can be grabbed from online retailers like Infibeam and The Mobile Store as well as brick and mortar retailers. Samsung is yet to officially announce the launch of Grand Neo in the country but we expecting it on February 18 during Samsung Forum 2014.
To remind you, Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo features 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 5.01-inch WVGA display, and 5MP rear camera. The phone also comes with VGA front camera, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. In addition, Grand Neo packs 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and 2100 mAh battery.
The phone is being sold at price-tag of INR 17,901 with an MRP of INR 19,010.
My thoughts on Grand Neo:
Clearly, the phone has been priced very badly. With Moto G in the market, apart from probably microSD card slot, there is nothing in Grand Neo that could make a consumer choose the phone over Moto G.
Samsung Grand Neo could probably have made sense at INR 11,000 (even INR 12K) but at the current price-tag, it is a strict no from my side.
If you really want to grab a Samsung Android smartphone around INR 18K, spend a little more and get Grand 2, which still makes sense.
