Back Camera, s -voice, direct call smart stay etc.
font camera with 1.9 is relatively poor for the phone.
I expect to have pen like Galaxy Note but failed as per my view.
Very high price (by 8K), poor software upgrade ability by samsung.
I will consider sony xperia S over this.
Price is too much
Although I am a lover of Samsung appliances yet I think these big companies have gone mad and they are just making a fool of us by selling their new model phones at such expensive rates.I think one can easily get a second hand vehicle at this very cost.
Rear Camera, Photos, S- Voice
The Back Plastic case.. looks cheap
Good.. but bit over-priced.Feels around the range of 35K would be ideal deal.
Good battery Life, Fast CPU, Great Features, Smart Camera, Light Weight
Back Cover is not well designed, Lack Galaxy Logo on set
