You can go one of two ways with Samsung’s smartphones, you can either drop a whopping great big chunk of cash on their Galaxy S 5 flagship smartphone (or something close to it) and get their top of the range or opt for something a lot more affordable. Either way, you’re going to be getting your hands on something that does what you want, when you want it to.

Take the Galaxy Grand Neo, for example. This is an Android 4.2-sporting smartphone that has a 5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 800. That’s not terribly high on the specification ladder but then the price isn’t all that high either.

The Grand Neo contains a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, one which is based around the Cortex-A7 which is found in Samsung’s Exynos Octa processors, and Samsung have also added in 1GB of RAM to this particular model.

Storage is 8GB as standard but you don’t have to stop there. Samsung have included a microSD slot that supports cards of up to 64GB so you’ll pretty much never be out of space as long as you lob in an external card.

On the camera front there’s a 5MP main shooter, along with Samsung’s typically fantastic software to make those megapixels do a bit of extra work. There’s also a VGA front camera for video calls and the like.

3G, Bluetooth and WiFi are all connectivity features, so you should be able to slot this into a home or office network in one way or another with ease. Always a plus.

And then there are the software features. Expect a collections of standard Google functions, like Google Maps and Gmail, along with Samsung’s own set of software that is aimed at making your life easier. And the best part is that you won’t have to take out a second mortgage in order to own a Galaxy Grand Neo.
