The phone is expandable to 64 GB which ia a good thing but its RAM is only 1GB which is a bad thing.
1) Since this is a dual sim phone, expect its battery to drain a little fast. If you rarely use one of your sims, disable it.
2) Use the flight mode but remember that this option disables all networks (wifi and mobile).
3) Visit the task manager regularly by pressing the home button about 2 to 3 seconds and then press the button at the very left and in RAM tap "Clear Memory" and end all active apps.
Actually this is a nice phone
Nice things about this phone:
1) It has a nice camera
2) It is affordable
3) It is large
4) It has some of the feature of high range phones such as note 2 and s3
Not so good things about this phone:
1) Battery life is not enough
2) Its 1.2gHz dual core processor is not enough so it hangs
3) It has no protection (corning gorrila glass)
4) Pixel density is only 187 ppi

I got a model GT-i9082L, since 8 months experience, iam truly satisfied with this phone..it's screen clarity is slightly not better, because having low pixels on 5" screen, but ultimately other features are much better and i would like to thank to Samsung for making such a nice smart phone.
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2014what help do u need... I want to update my firmware to 4.2.2. But it shows firmware upto date
MAHA, 07 Apr 2014very very poor performance hangs a lot .. worst mobile to use You have to be smart user tobuse a smart phone. It is not just the grand or experia any android in present day would go slow and hang if not taken cared properly. A suggestion is install a app named DU Speed BOOSTER- AVAILABLE ON PLAY STORE. It will kill all miscellaneous and useless fikes and data. And you have to accelerate it very frequently to make sure phone is running at its best speed. I have a grand since it release and has never given me a problem.
