Samsung Galaxy S DUOS

Last week we reported that Germany would soon be getting the Samsung Galaxy S Duos. At the time, we believed the price would be around €254.89 (around $320). The dual-SIM smartphone has now officially launched, at a suggested price that is quite a bit higher, at €349, than we originally suspected. Hoping to pay a little less than that? Most retailers are actually offering it quite a bit lower than the suggested retail, starting around €259.

The Duos is far from the most powerful phone on the market, but it still offers reasonably capable specs. The smartphone is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A5 processor, has 768MB of RAM, dual SIM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD, a 5MP cam and 4-inch capacitive screen. Other features include WIFI, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 and a 1500 mAh battery.

Dual-SIM phones aren’t for everyone, but they certainly help fill a niche. Do you like the data plan of one carrier better? At the same time, can you find voice cheaper elsewhere? With the Galaxy S Duos, you can use your device with more than one network. This is also a great option if you travel a lot and need to buy a temporary SIM for a different country.

Are you considering getting your hands on the DUOS, or are its modest specs too weak for your needs?
