The Verdict:

With 11% slimmer and 28% lighter the Samsung Galaxy SII‘s sleek and light weighted design gives a sober and trendy look and is easier to handle and carry when compared to Samsung Galaxy Grand, however the 5 inched device might give a better surfing and video experience but we feel the 4.3 inched super ALMOED doesnt let this device make a bigger one. The Processor, Internal Memory, HDMI, DLNA stll proves the giant beast Samsung Galaxy SII way better then the latest phablet Samsung Galaxy Grand. However the two devices are currently available in the same price range in the market with Samsung Galaxy SII slightly more expensive then Samsung Galaxy Grand, the price diffrence between the two seems legit and clearly we feel the formal flagship is somewhere better then the latest release.

Thank You, please do not forget to leave your valuable feedbacks.
