    1. You can't.Everything you download will be saved to phone storage but you can move your data to sdcard.

      the external sd card has a folder named "ext_sd".Move files to this folder to be saved on sd card..

      Delete
    2. root your galaxy s duos and then install link2sd
      the best app to manage apps on internal memory

      It needs a memory card/ sd card normally more than 4 gb
      partition it using the clock work mod recovery
      and select ext2 as the default second partition for your phone

      Thus the partioned part of your sd card will be used as the second internal memory

      Right now
      I am using a 16gb sd card
      partitioned 2gb as ext2
      now i have more than 300 apps installed on my s duos
      210 of which are games

      enjoying my s duos

    3. voice typing is of no use
      it uses internet to recognize what you have said
      mostly 49% of the time it will not recognize what you have said
      and it takes much time too

      have you tried the handwriting feature??
      or
      the best recommended app
      SwiftKey version 4+ which has the swipe feature
      works miracles

      Delete
    4. can you explain how it's done

  8. I have a sim from one country and a sim from another country. Moving between countries is easy for voice calling (I dont need to do anything), BUT I also want to change the simcard used for data in one or the other country. I know how to do it manually, but it is a bit of a lengthy and cumbersome process (first i have to disable one card, then change the technology used on the other card, then enable again). So I was hoping there was an App to do that.

    1. If application hangs then clear their cache and data from application settings.Galaxy S duos is not a good phone,its screen is not responsive and it doest not understand the touch precisely.

      If your galaxy s duos freezes or hangs then factory reset your phone,but before doing this backup all the data stored on your phone.

      2. Ram
      3.Screen.
      4.camera
      5.android version

    4. all the ad supported apps try to sync with the web as soon as they see network connectivity

      root your phone
      install avast antivirus
      enable the firewall
      choose which apps have the access to wifi or data packet

      or
      download go taskmanager
      it has the firewall too
      chose which app gets network connectivity

      now the phone will not hang

  15. The phone is slow. Most of the time 500 MB of RAM keeps occupied of 645 MB of RAM.
    A simple example of its slowness. to complete the process of calling someone by opening the contacts, selecting a number and calling takes around 20 seconds.
    most of the time is consumed in waiting for the contacts option to show the contacts.

    can anyone suggest how to make this phone faster? a solution is needed badly.

    1. Stop unwanted apps by using the task manager.Galaxy s duos lags while playing games like temple run and subway surfers,So I recommend you to use task manager to free RAM and uninstall unwanted apps from it.Also you can use NQ netqin smart RAM booster which is good at optimizing RAM.

    1. Hello Asha.Factory resetting the phone won't work if you do not format the usb storage of galaxy s duos.In factory reset option there is also an option named "format sd card" and format "usb storage".You need to format this usb storage as this is phone's storage.Unless you clear this usb storage the backup will not be deleted.

      Other option is reset your galaxy s duos in recovery mode.But do not try this if you can format the usb storage from factory reset settings in phone settings.
      1.Remove sd card first to avoid data loss.
      2.Now press home button+volume up+power button at the same time to enter into recovery mode.
      3.Do not release buttons until you the recovery mode.
      4.Move down and select "Wipe data/factory reset".
      5.Then go back and select "wipe cache partition".
      6.Again go back and select "reboot system now"

      If nothing fixes then try manually deleting that files.And if possible post a screenshot of that backup files.

    1. First of all galaxy s duos hangs a lot due to low RAM of 768 MB.Even games like temple run don't run smooth and the phone lags.

      You can't move apps from phone to memory card.If you want this then you need to root.But I won't recommend it.

    2. root your s duos
      install link2sd and go power master (go launcher needed)
      partiotion sd card
      move large apps to the partitioned sd card (mostly ext2)
      and use go power master to maintain the speed of your s duos

      additionally
      go to settings
      developer options

    1. You should see a big "E" with green and orange arrows that blinks when data network is ON.If you are not seeing any E sign then you have not activated the data network.Enable data network in wireless and network settings.If you are using two sims then check their configuration,the sim that you are using in sim1 slot may be disabled from connecting to data network while the sim2 may be enabled.So check these things first.Or it may be a network problem.

      Let me know if you have any problem.

    1. enable "Dual sim" in sim card manager settings.If you enable this you will receive calls on both sims.In sim card manager enable "Receive incoming calls" this option is for when you use gprs and want to receive calls on other sim.Do this for both sims.

You can move most apps to sdcard by going to applications manager and select "move to sd card".But all apps doesn't support this feature.Why you want to root your phone,rooting will make it vulnerable to viruses and bugs,I won't recommend to root,s duos has large space,so doesn't matter to move apps to sd..

      ive been installing useful apps to s duos and it hungs up...
      the so called internal sd cad on s duos is an EMITATION...... thats why its emulated......

      compare to my s advance it runs smoothly coz i move all the downloaded and PAID apps to internal sd card

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. First trick.
      goto Settings>Display>Battery Percentage.It will show battery percentage next to battery icon.So you will know whether your phone is near to be juiced out or not.See trick number 5 above.

      Other trick.
      Use some battery apps like juice defender,NQ booster optimizer,Battery HD etc to get an alarm when battery is low.But the trick no. 1 is good as you do not need to install separate battery app that will juice down battery of your phone by running continuously.

    How to turn OFF camera sound.
    Model: Samsung galaxy s duos - s7562


    Thanks,
    Kupi.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Go in camera settings.Click the wrench like icon and uncheck "shutter sound".

      Delete
    2. put the phone in vibration mode from the icon
      or use this app widget
      http://androidappslabs.com/uva-silent-widget-camera-free/

      there is no setting for that

      and if you are an advanced user

      you can try this


      First you need to root your phone,
      and you need to mount the /system directory RW.

      Code:

      adb shell
      su
      mount -o rw,remount /system

      Then edit /system/csc/others.xml

      Code:

      vi /system/csc/others.xml

      Here you will find a section called , add the following to this section;

      Code:

      true

      Now just reboot the phone, and you should find that the camera application has gained a new setting called "Shutter sound" which you can set to Off (scroll down in the settings, it is just after the GPS tag setting).

    1. This phone is not good for gaming.It can't be upgraded to jellybean.It's cpu is single core and it lags while playing games like temple run.Gaming is not smooth on galaxy s duos.

      If you want to buy an android jellybean device for gaming then go for galaxy tab 2 p3110 wifi which is 7 inch jellybean tablet and you can play almost any android game on it.It has a dual core processor and 1 gb ram.It is cheaper than galaxy s duos.But you can't make voice calls from it.If you want a voice calling feature with gaming then go for galaxy tab 2 p3100.
