Camera and Internal Storage

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Max includes a decent imaging hardware comprising of a 13 MP primary snapper and a 5 front facing selfie snapper onboard. The primary snapper is accompanied with LED flash for better imaging under low light conditions. Also, the front facer seems to be a selfie focused one as it comes with 120 degree viewing angle. These imaging aspects are on par the other handsets that are priced similarly.

When it comes to the storage aspects, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Max bundles amply 16 GB of native storage space that can be expanded externally up to 64 GB with the help of a micro SD card. Well, it is pretty impressive to see 16 GB of storage capacity that is the latest trend followed by manufacturers.

Processor and Battery

The smartphone is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor that is teamed up with 1.5 GB of RAM for impressive multitasking. These innards are similar to the ones on the Galaxy Mega 2 that was launched in the last year and in some mid-rangers launched by the other manufacturers as well.

The Galaxy Grand Max is stuffed with a 2,500 mAh battery that sounds decent enough to pump in a moderate backup to the smartphone. However, there is no specific word regarding the backup that this battery can pump.
