Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Grand Quattro also known as the Galaxy Win in other markets. This smart phone is a retake on the Galaxy Grand adding a few things and removing a few. 


Galaxy Grand Quattro : Win 3


The packaging is minimal suggesting towards the lower end spectrum for Samsung but also infusing their new less paper (eco-friendly) model they suggested during the launch of the Galaxy S4. Listed below are the box contents:

  • Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro / Win Handset
  • 2000 mAh Battery
  • USB charging cable
  • USB wall adapter
  • Documentation 
  • In-ear earphones with additional tips.

Galaxy Grand Quattro : Win 0



There are a bunch of differences in the Galaxy Grand Quattro, starting with a smaller 4.7 inch 480 x 800 px display, which bumps up the ppi to 199 ppi. The chipset on the inside is now a Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200 quad-core 1.2 GHz chipset, along with an Adreno 203 GPU.

The rear camera and the front camera have also been downgraded to 5 MP and VGA from 8MP and 2.1 MP respectively. Inside however we still have 8GB of storage (5GB + is available to the user) and 1 GB of RAM. 


Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro I8552 Initial impressions


The build quality is along the lines of the Galaxy Grand, composed of 100% plastic build including the back panel and the bezel. The Galaxy Grand Quattro has a significantly smaller footprint thanks to the smaller screen size. The phone also weighs less and fits comfortably in the hand of the user. 

The interface reminds us of many of the recent Samsung launches all showing of similar Touch-Wiz and Android 4.1.2 functionality. The Galaxy Grand Quattro / Win however, does not carry the smart features seen on the Galaxy Grand, No Multi Window toolbar, no S-Voice and No Pop-Up-Play. Which could nullify the proposition for a lot of buyers. The Smaller screen is definitely more crisp and is evident in the first impression. Video playback is smooth even though we felt a bit of lag in the Internet browser.

Galaxy Grand Quattro : Win 8


The keyboard is as fast as ever and retains the continuos input option, along with all of the Samsung customizations for its keyboard. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro / Win is a promising upgrade to the Galaxy Grand, it removes a lot of software and hardware features, but, does two interesting things, Adds a quad-core Processor and drops the price by about Rs. 2500 or US $ 50.

    seems like samsung is really scared of other companies like micromax , xolo when it comes to mid range budget  and performance mobiles…..  must have launched this phone in competetion with canvas hd and xolo q800….. but seriously quad core with arm 5 processor its pathetic and adreno 203 gpu also sucks whereas other companies offer quad core with arm7 and mali 400 gpu………………. but the kind of belief that people have on samsung they will surely buy this just by hearing the price and quad core.

  • NagarjunaKristam

    8225Q is really pathetic quad core out of all … doesnot even give performance of a dual core A9…

  • Pradeep Vig


  • Shahid Ul Haque

    the cam should have been 8mp..!! :

  • Anantha Krishnan

    And i think the display resolution is too low.

  • Akshay Agarwal

    You are correct, but 99% of the people out there dont know that

  • ManavJot Singh

    Adreno 203? Cortex A5? and 15 fps 720p recording ..waste of money..

    • RishiRokstar

      @ManavJot Singh MMX Canvas HD .. cortex a7 .. 30fps 1080 video recrnds under 14K .. beat tht

      • RishiRokstar

        oh i forgot to mention its powered by a PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU

  • Deb Chakraborty


  • Navjit ????

    Video still processing on youtube.

  • Ankit Taneja

    video please

  • ShreenitShahapurkar

    I feel its more of a downgrade, The Chipset isn’t nearly as better as the Grand’s. It uses an A5, Not even an A7! And the GPU, Adreno 203 sucks outright..
    Its just a gimmick of selling ‘quad core’ phones, The Broadcomm with the Video Core IV does better INMHO

  • ImJC

    Battery is not 200 MAh ..pls edit…

  • AbhiAk

    Thanks you!!
