Samsung Galaxy S Duos Vs Galaxy S Duos 2 – The Small Upgrade That Will Make The Difference

At the beginning of December 2013, Samsung released the Galaxy S Duos 2, another mid-range device that is supposed to replace the Galaxy S Duos, which came three months before. But why did Samsung rush to make a new S Duos instead of waiting more months to have plenty of time for improvements in the hardware department?
The phones are identical, featuring a polycarbonate body with a wide faux metal trim and their removable rear panels are available in black and white colors. The Galaxy S Duos is 0.1mm thinner, measuring 10.5mm, but otherwise, it has the same dimensions as its sibling: a length of 121.5mm and a width of 63.1mm. The new model weights 118ams, with 2grams less than the original Galaxy S Duos.
There isn’t much to say here, because both displays are sized at 4inches, and they’re using the TFT technology. But, these aren’t impressive devices, so their screens can’t compete with those from other high end devices. The maximum supported resolution is 480×800 pixels and the pixel density reaches 233ppi.
Processors and Memories
The first model came with a weak Cortex A5 processor clocked at 1GHz, based on a Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon chipset and used Adreno 200 graphics. It had 768MB of RAM and a small internal memory of only 4GB, from which 1.8GB was user available. Fortunately, the phone supports a microSD card slot, and you’d be able to get up to 32GB of storage.
Samsung upgraded the hardware components on the Duos 2, using a dual core Cortex-A9 processor and increasing the clock up to 1.2GHz. The chipset was replaced with a BCM 28145/28155 and the graphics are Broadcom VideoCore IV. However, no change was made to the RAM capacity and internal memory.
Operating systems
While the Galaxy S Duos came loaded with Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), the successor received the 4.2 (Jelly Bean) version.
At first sight, you might think that the new model has the same cameras with the same features. However, even if both rear cameras have a resolution of 5MP and the front cameras are VGA, the difference between the new Duos 2 and its predecessor lies in the HDR support for video playback and the fact that it can record at 720p@30fps instead of 480p@30fps. Luckily, the phones come with LED flash, autofocus and geo tagging as common features.
Both models are equipped with user replaceable batteries with a capacity of 1500mAh. Bu the Galaxy S Duos last 330 hours in stand by mode on 3G and allows up to 7 hours and a half when talking on 3G, with 30 minutes less than the Duos 2.
Other features
Both phones support dual-SIM cards, 3G, WiFi, GPS, AGPS and Bluetooth.
On Amazon, you’ll find the Galaxy S Duos at the price of 160 dollars and the Duos 2 will be 35 dollars cheaper.
