    I found that Shipping Charges are extra and on other site they provide only seller warranty. On one site I found it for Rs. 8,490/- with manufacturer warranty, Bill and free Shipping. Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos has proved itself as the youth phone. Lots of features, cool design and less price what else is required.

    but isn't the ROM totally futile if i can't access it? what is its work??

    • gogi says

      ROM is where the main android OS is stored permanently, RAM is temporary used by apps, by user and some by the system. When you power on the phone first time, after a reboot or after a shut down. The OS is loaded from ROM, consider that as a secure drive where the OS loads from, users cannot access it.

    I bought a samsung galaxy y duos about a month ago. Before buying, I saw the specifications on the internet. It stated that the phone has 384 MB RAM & 512 MB ROM & 160 MB user available memory. But after buying I noticed that the RAM is only 290 MB and the amazing fact is that I didn't get any trace of that 512 MB ROM.

    My question is why the RAM is less than what it was to be? Where is the extra 94 MB? And where is the 512 MB ROM and how will i access it? Am I cheated? Why I had to pay ~ rs.1800 more for the this phone than the single sim version if there's nothing special in the duos version except better camera and dual sim? Please tell me what should I do now. I bought the phone mainly for the extra powerful RAM.

    • gogi says

      Hi you cannot check the ROM but the ram is actually 384 but some part is used by the OS (dedicated for its use) and the android OS does not reveal that info. So the 290 MB RAM that you say it has is fair enough.

    • gogi says

      Vaibhav, email / call sulekha and let them know of the problem. In case there is delay, keep calling them. If you have made the payments via credit card and still sulekha does not respond to your emails / calls or no satisfactory answer, call your credit card company and file a dispute for the same.

    Please tell me what should I buy samsung y galaxy duo or samsung y galaxy pro duo I have confusion about that? in y duo has bigger screen size compare to galaxy pro? I am confused between two.

    • gogi says

      vaibhav, both handsets are good, ignore the size as one is with QWERTY keyboard. Decide if you want a QWERTY phone or a non-QWERTY phone.

    Hi Gogi,

    I bought this (Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos (B5512)) for my dad just because of front VGA to use Skype and OOVOO but to my surprise the front camera was not functioning.

    Please let me know as to what needs to be done or which app to take for this issue to resolve.


    • gogi says

      The camera should be working, you should have got the front / rear camera option when using the camera, if there is no response from the front camera, it could be defective, you will need to call the Samsung Support.

    • gogi says

      Geo Tagging means adding the coordinates (latitude and longitude) to say the photo you just clicked. Almost all phones with GPS and camera come with this feature. When enabled for every photo that you have clicked it is tagged (or an extra info about the coordinates) are added.

      Once you have the geo tagged information you will know where the photos were taken, in fact using some software's you can create alum based on location.

    hi gogi,

    please tell me that what is the function of gpu in mobile phones?

    • gogi says

      GPU is graphics processing unit. This unit handles the graphics part and relieves the main CPU which can perform other functions. A phone with a GPU (depending on the GPU speed) will be able to play many high quality games and the overall the functioning will be smoother.
