I have only one advice. If you have this phone and updated it to 4.1.2, go and see your ram. If it is only 482 or 550MB, than follow the instructions on this site. I have done that and now everything is smooth and works perfectly.
Note: you dont need to flash it with new firmware if you already have the 4.1.2, just use the v1 or v2.
Dave Skies, 12 Oct 2013With 4.1.2 android it terribly lags. mines work perfectly....
There is a way through softwares like odin and other where you can *root* your device and instal os that are not created to run on your device BUT you loose your warranty and there are possibilities to loose your smartphone.

Install Samsung Kies, it should give you the update option when you USB connect it and you're PC is online. Although I wouldn't suggest going up to Jellybean, I did and it struggles. But I've got my eye on the Mega 6.3 anyway...

What will happen when i use a high capacity battery for my ace 2? like 2450mAh? thanks in advance :)
I didn't want to update to Jelly bean, but my Gingerbread crashed so i had to. I upgraded it with Samsung Kies, but my phone slowed down very much. JB decreased RAM to 482MB. I had to flash it with Odin and now it shows 624 MB and it's ok. The phone don't have to be rooted to flash it.
Hi, I recently bought this phone and I like it but the battery doesn't seem to be lasting as long as it's supposed to. the last 2 times it needed charging after 48 hours and then 36 hours after that, but im not using it a lot. ive sent a few texts each day and used a chat app for less than 2 hours. is this normal? is there something I need to do to make it last longer?
