Editor Notes

Although both the phones belong to a different series from Samsung, they both look similar in terms of design and pure specifications. Launched in the same month, the Galaxy E series is more focused on style and selfie-lovers while the Grand series has always been about a big screen with mid-range specifications. Both the phones come with a 720p display but share a different type of panel and screen size. The Galaxy E5 (5.0-inch) comes with a denser Super AMOLED panel known for its vibrant colors, while the Grand Max (5.25-inch) comes with an equally good IPS LCD panel known for its more realistic colors. Both phones come with a similar 1.2Ghz Quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal storage (with microSD card support up to 64GB) and offer Dual-SIM functionality. On the software front, both of them run on Android 4.4 KitKat with no official word from Samsung for a future update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

So what’s different? The Grand Max comes with a 13MP camera while the E5 settles for an 8MP camera. While both phones come with a wide-angle 5MP front camera, the E5 comes with a range of smart camera functions like one can take photos with a simple voice command or palm gesture and even use the Beautifying Mode for enhancing skin tones. The Grand Max has a slightly larger removable battery (2500mAh) compared to E5’s (2400mAh) non-removable battery. The Grand Max even comes with 4G connectivity, which should make it future-proof as more and more Indian cities will be getting 4G support soon. Unless you absolutely don’t need to click selfies all the time, the Grand Max is a better device as its got a better camera, 4G connectivity and bigger battery, thus making it a better choice.
