Priced at Php 7,990, Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 is currently the one of the most affordable models in the Korean's current line-up of Android handsets. But just because it's cheap doesn't mean its greatly under-powered or that it lacks decent features and technical specifications.

For that amount, users will already a cute device with a rounded design language reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy Grand or Samsung Galaxy S3. The handset also comes replete with a 4-inch 400 x 800 pixels TFT screen, a 5 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash, VGA front cam, and an HD 720p video recorder.

Inside the shell, Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 features a Dual Core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU and VideoCore 4 GPU based Broadcom BCM21664T chipset running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system skinned by Samsung's very own TouchWiz user interface. This is a vast improvement from the 1 GHz ARM Cortex A5 CPU and Adreno 200 GPU based Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon SoC of the first generation Samsung Galaxy S Duos.

The new processor paired with the 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of ROM - that can be expanded via microSD card slot - combine to give SGSDuos2 a more than decent Antutu Benchmark Score of 12,031, which supposedly puts it in between 2011 flagship releases Samsung Galaxy S2 and HTC One X in terms of actual performance.

Back to the design, the phone flaunts a faux metal side rim and glossy back plate like what you'll find on Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and SGS3.
