HTC One (M8): Price & Specs in Bangladesh

HTC has come out with their latest flagship device  the HTC ONE M8. It is an update to their previous HTC ONE, which is regarded as the best phone of 2013. It comes with the same look and feel. But, I am not quite sure about HTC's intention behind its main 4 MP dual camera. It is available in Bangladesh for a price of 62,000 (now reduced to 48,900) TK, on bargain.

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2: Price & Specs of the Grand in Bangladesh

After great success from the Samsung Galaxy Grand Samsung has introduced its successor with more powerful hardware. Although its yet to add some most needed hardware specs like the Super AMOLED display and the gorilla glass protection. Whatever, its look and performance is pleasing. But, that doesn't justify a price of 28,500 (reduced to 21,500) TK. I would rather go for the Primo X2 which is sold for a t least 5,000 less than the Grand 2 but with more powerful hardware.

Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 Price & Specs in Bangladesh

Personaly I hate the idea of a dual sim smartphone. But recently Samsung is in the swim to make dual sim device. Sometimes, it may be useful but in most cases it results in a low battery back up time. By the way, a lot of guys wants to have the dual sim opportunity in their device. Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 is here to offer that in a tight budget. But, this is not any eye catching phone. It comes with the very basic hardware and performs thus. In fact you cant expect anything superb for 13,900 Tk from any renowned brand. Take a look at its specs if you want to have it.
