  2. I need an android phone just for, whatsapp, bbm, facebook, gmail downloading torrents on the go and must have good GPS obviously with google maps and it seems S duos 2 is having GPS (31 Sat) and Glonass (24 sat) thus providing a better navigation, but may not be present in the xperia M. Can you please specify me the battery life on using GPS on S duos 2. And will buying s duos 2 for these specific apps and some internet usage be fruitful? Cz I'm an iPad user (wifi only so no dedicatd GPS) and so I don't need much apps for my phone.

    1. After reading your requirements I would suggest you to buy sony xperia M dual because it has everything that you mentioned in your question above except the GLONASS.

      Well a-GPS support is also very good for gps navigation purposes. My phone doesn't have GLONASS but I always use gps navigation via GMAPS and the navigation is very correct. With a-GPS I always reach at right places.

      Now if you use GPS service much whole day on any android phone then battery won't give good results, because you are using GPS and data network at the same time. There is a way to save battery while You are using GPS. Follow the steps.

      1. firstly get full directions on GMAPS.
      2. now after getting the directions I look for straight roads. Suppose if I have to 5 kms straight on a road then during this journey I turn off the gps and data network.
      3. after covering 4 kms I again enable gps and data network and check 'My Location' in Gmaps to check whether I am following the blue line or not.

      This trick saves battery very much.
