Something else it has started changing the time and date by itself whether it's set by the network or manually. Some times it is suddenly off by months. I've missed appointments because the alarm didn't go off because the phone thought it was 10pm at night in February when it was really 7am in the morning in August.
Seriously anyone considering buying this phone steer clear
This has to be by far the worst phone that I have ever used in my life. My friend lent it to me after I lost my original Moto G on a night out. I've been using the I8730 since until I have enough for a new phone.
All I can say is that it's a good thing this isn't my own phone or I would have taken a hammer and smashed this piece of crap into pieces a long time ago.
It can't keep a signal over Internet or wifi. Sometimes it decides it won't send your texts for weeks if at all. It constantly freezes up and I have no choice but to pull the battery.
Word of advice stay clear of low to mid range Samsung phones, they suck. Their high end phones are alright but any of the rest are overpriced pieces of crap. You'd be better off spending your money on a Huawei P9 Lite or a bit more for a OnePlus 3

My galaxy express seems to be slowly shutting down. All apps I use is shutting down, how can I prevent this from continuing?
+ Small size, light weight and low cost are a delight
+ 4G LTE, S Beam, NFC and MHL compatible!
+ Mono loudspeaker is one of the loudest I've heard on a smartphone
+ Surprising durability - mine survived several 1-metre falls and being submerged in a porta-potty (not pretty)
+ Default video player handles 720p60 H.264 video and PCM surround sound just fine
- Short 4G web-browsing battery life
- Gets hot after web-browsing with 100% brightness
- Slow HTML5
- 800x480 display resolution feels very cramped while browsing web pages
- Low pixel density
- Stereo separation of dual microphone array is too wide
- Notification bar at the top burns into the screen
This is easily the worst phone I have ever purchased. Had problems from the word 'go'. The contacts in my list, at least 4 times a week I would get a message 'not registered on the network' when trying to call my friends. I would turn it off and start again. I took it back to Samsung after 3 months, they totally deleted the system then reloaded it again. It made no difference. Took it back to them before the warranty expired, they sent it away and after a month, they replaced it with a new one. It made no difference. It cost me $500. Many other problems as well.
