I experience frequent hangups. once in 24 hrs a series of messages appear on my screen one by one saying "TW launcher has stoped unexpectedly" force close... and when it hit "force close" then another and another and so on about all applications one by one. Then I am left with only one option of wiping the data and turning it to factory reset. This erases all the data, applications,contacts,messages and every thing except photos an videos. I am very annoyed suggest me what to do?

This thing it cannot be called a "Galaxy". It worked (pretty) fine with gingerbread android, but when the update to jelly bean came on I expected a much better experience, not the opposite. It moves very slow if you don't restart it once a day and it gives you very bad headache when you try to call someone and the system freezes (when initiate or response a call the touchscreen and the system works hard or it locks; sometimes it works after 4-5 seconds). The 800 mhz dual core processor is too slow even for google navigation. Even in wi-fi or 3G, you need 5 minutes to open a single web page (typing, searching, acces a link, loading... it's awful). The single good thing on this phone is camera that makes very nice photos and videos, but in rest the whole phone works very hard in menu, aplications, internet, settings etc.

Samsungs are good, but only over 300 euro. They mocked Ace 2.

To be blunt, this is a really terrible phone.
I have had it for a year and a half (unfortunately). From the first few days of owning it I've experienced lag, freezing, crashes, you name it. This is the SLOWEST phone I've ever used. This is an incredibly UNRESPONSIVE phone. Most of the time it takes 5 tries to get the keyboard working so that I can type a simple text message, and when it finally decides to work the tap calibration is lacking. I have to constantly clear the ram in order to not have the phone freeze up and go ballistic. And if you need to use the internet, set aside some time, you'll be there for a while. There are so many applications that this phone can't handle-- including it's built in ones! It will freeze after the simplest command and then a pop up window will tell you the app isn't responding. So frustrating! Basically, you can do better.
I will say that the battery life is quite decent. And it charges pretty fast. The sound quality could be worse, although it's not great. It does look nice, and the buttons are laid out in a nice way. It's also durable: I'm pretty clumsy, but despite how many times I've dropped it no scratches or cracks.
Overall, though, I wouldn't wish this phone upon anyone. My whole family has one, and a few friends-- they all hate it, and our phones all individually fail in their own way. This phone is a menace!
[ A word to the wise: If you want headphones with remote control, you're going to have to use the (really really terrible) Samsung ones that come in the box, or struggle with other brands that sometimes work, but usually don't. ]
