    Would not be a silly decision, just have to set your priorities on what you want from your smartphone.
    Pros for this phone is dual sim card, 5" screen but TFT only. Dual Core processor but price I think is quite cheap, right?
    If need faster processor then look at S III or wait for S IV.....:biggrin:

    If you're looking for dual sim phone then this is the best choice. It's relatively cheaper due to lower resolution TFT screen, as opposed to Full HD AMOLED screens like other higher end Samsung phones.

    Samsung is a good buy, good all-rounder phone.. After sales service is good ( in my case it was )

    P/S: Ninethology is a good dual-sim phone too, running android 4.0. Screen colour is vivid, better than my Galaxy Tab 7+. Plus, it is running a no-nonsense Android 4.0, unlike other big brands where they like to add-on their useless apps on top of the Android.. If you're eligible for the rm200 rebate, can get it for just RM499 :biggrin:

    you can use few apps like 'phone spec' and compare the phone spec to original spec. Usually, cheaper (china/korea) phone screen resolution is very low. You can check screen resolution using apps also.

    If you really into buying this phone, go to where you can access over internet and install those apps during trying. Hope this may help.

    Nowdays there r copy/imitation phone just like the original but internal chip n display is not the same if u compare it side by side, display is totally weak normal lcd, if u seen the original, u can tell which is fake. Inside andriod function also some diff. Ori EMOLED display alone cost around RM600-800 if your ori display pecah, so they will use only cheap stuff for the imitation phone.

    There is no 3rd party manufacturer, dun be con...

    Saw the Korean made phones

    Very sharp screen, almost like the ori, if not better...

    About to buy the S3 version @ RM1,000

    What do you guys think?

    Any comment from Samsung officials?
