A discount of more than Rs 500 is definitely worth considering if it is on a Samsung handset. The Samsung Galaxy Music Duos is anyway a good handset with a focus on music and entertainment, that’s why we were forced to consider this deal which is being offered by Snapdeal.com, and users will have to enter the code “mob400â€ to avail this offer.
The Samsung Galaxy Music Duos is a dual SIM connectivity based smartphone running on a single core 850 MHz processor based on ARM cortex A9 architecture. Along with that the device comes with a 512 MB RAM for smoother operations. The display is handled by a 3 Inch TFT LCD display with a 240 x 320 pixel resolution.
The Galaxy Music Duos also has 4 GB of onboard memory along with the option of extending it to another 32 GB through a micro SD card. The good news is that it comes with Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system for maximum compatibility with apps and functionalities and there is also plan to upgrade the device to Android Jelly Bean too.
The imaging is handled by a 3 megapixel fixed focus camera but sadly it can only record VGA resolution videos. Also there is no flash in the handset for illumination in low light conditions. Galaxy Music Duos has two frontal stereo speakers that deliver good sound quality and advanced audio features such as Sound Alive and SRS. Also the smartphone comes with an integrated FM antenna for playback without the headset connectivity as well.
