Galaxy Grand 2 support from GGC


The galaxy grand center will officially support "Galaxy Grand 2" from rooting of the phone to a official custom ROM by GGC.

Overview:
Samsung today launched the successor to the successful Samsung Galaxy Grand in India, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. Launched earlier this year, Samsung Galaxy Grand set certain benchmarks and brought new features like multi-window to a budget smartphone.
The Grand 2 smartphone is really a phablet. Samsung clearly loves big screens and Samsung Galaxy Grand is all about being large-hearted. The phablet comes with a generous 5.25-inch TFT display. The screen resolution is 720 x 1280 pixels. At 280 ppi, there's a lot Samsung leaves to desire here. The bigger the screen and smaller the resolution, the worse is the reading experience. Bigger is clearly not always the better and Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 proves just that.

While the screen more than disappoints, the news that Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 comes with the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.3 is sure to make you smile. Yes, we do know that KitKat is already here but there's still time before smartphone makers adapt to the all new Android platform. Till CES 2014, Jelly Bean 4.3 is all you get and honestly, there's no real reason to complain.

So far it has been a tie for the phone. But the one thing that will tip scales in favour of or against the device is the hardware. Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 runs a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor under the hood.  Discounting the octa-core craze, quad core is the best out there. However, while phonemakers have often dangled the quad-core carrot before, the low RAM has proved to be the catch. With a 1.5 GHz RAM, Samsung has ensured that Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is as smooth as butter. The smartphone with the big screen is clearly for multi-tasking and some good gaming. With the processor and an adequate RAM, Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is quite a capable phablet.
