Local FM stations can be listened to on the FM stereo feature to listen to your music or talk show while on the go. If you put your music in MP3, WAV, or eAAC format, you can alternatively listen to those. The loudspeaker sounds OK for music listening but you will more than likely opt for plugging in a 3.5mm headphone instead.
The lens quality on the i589 is very good though since it is only a 3MP shooter, if you print your photos, they turn out fuzzy.
The decent quality video camera will allow you to record moments to play back later.

With a price tag of Rs. 13490 (approx., may vary), you will be putting a rather decent invest into the I589. The fact the device has CDMA capability may cater to those who have frequent access to that technology. But in the end, the features are lacking for the pricing. Most noteworthy would be the lack of a flash on the camera. Unless you need the CDMA dual SIM capability, the Galaxy Ace Duos i589 is not the device for you.
