Samsung Galaxy S Duos was introduced in the market at Rs. 17900/- but it's price has come down towards Rs. 10000/- in 6 months due to the competition from better equipped Quad-core phones from Indian manufacturers. It may be prudent to consider other phones like Panasonic T31 as well before you buy this phone.
Advantages: Samsung Galaxy S Duos is a Dual SIM phone and that is the only advantage
Disadvantages: VGA secondary camera, Frequent slowing and hang up of the phone, Resolution is low for the screen size and RAM is of only 768MB.
Design and Looks: Samsung Galaxy S Duos is a budget Android Dual SIM phone with a 4 inch screen size. But touch is not very responsive and low pixel density of 480 x 800 make the screen unusually bright. It is always advised to use the phone with low brightness.
Hardware and Software: The phone comes with Android OS, v4.0 (up-gradable to v 4.1 (Jelly Bean)), a reasonable 1 GHz Processor and Adreno 200 GPU. But the low RAM of just 768MB make the phone very slow frequently.
Camera, Music and Multimedia: The 5 MP rear camera is a good performer but VGA secondary camera is quite a disappointment. The camera has features like autofocus, LED flash and Geo tagging. Video recording is possible at VGA@30fps
Internal and External Storage: The phone comes with internal storage of only 4GB. External storage via microSD up to 32 GB also is available.
Connectivity Options: The phone can work on quad band 2G and quad band 3G. There is no 4G available with this phone. In addition to GPRS and EDGE, Galaxy S DUos can be connected to internet via 3G with connection speed of HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76 Mbps. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DPand Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n are also available.
Battery and Talk Time: The phone offers talk time of 13 hrs, but in real conditions, it seems to be much lower.
Our Verdict: Samsung Galaxy S Duos does not provide any good features for the price it commands at present.

I bought this phone and within 5 days, camera flash stopped working. There is problem with touch at some parts of the screen and battery is draining off very fast, hardly lasts for 6 hrs if I make 8-10 calls. And the phone hangs a lot. Not a good phone to have...
