I WAS satissfied with this phone .. but know not any more ... i have done EVERYTHING to optimize the phone's performance ... unfortunately,you can't expect to much from a low end phone .. even Lenovo a369i is better than this !! I agree with the other comment too .. MINI 2 can only support Gingerbread for official firmware .. but other device with same spec can do better ...

I have S6500 for year and 2 months now... and I must say this is, hands down, the worst phone I've ever had...

- it lags so much it's frustrating
- Internet browsing is super slow (weather I use wifi or mobile network)
- it was scheduled for official Android 4.x but as it looks now, it will stay on 2.3.6

If you can choose, don't buy this, as you will surely regret it.

> In reply to Vishera96 @ 2014-02-17 17:29 from vV5G - click to readI agree, i've been using this **** for a year and it is super lag, subway surf is so lag, and low res screen, not even clash of clans is good on this device because it jas low res screen, i always watch video and i got f***ed up so i use lap top. DON'T BUY THIS PHONE, if you need a almost same price phone with 5 times spec, lenovo A706, good choice.

This is still a good basic Android device. Although stuck on Gingerbread, most apps run pretty fine. Also, this is the only device I can SIM-unlock and debrand under ten minutes ;)

In reply to abraham link:
Samsung has announced on September 24, 2012 that Galaxy Mini 2 was to be updated in the future with Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean".
Later, Samsung abandoned development of Jelly Bean for Mini 2.
Altrough there is an UNNOFICIAL version of android 4, but I guess is unfinised and have bugs.

Conclusion, DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG as it is a LIAR. I buyed this phone for my mother as a present, now all of my familiy swiched on Sony Xperia L, as it camed free from the Carrier.

Samsung Statements and Software Development team SUCKS BIG TIME!

Use it for a year and half..
-Rooted takes some times, like studying and done rooting like 1-2hours..
-I can't imagine live my life with this phone w/o rooting
-Horribly lagged phone
-RAM always gets 280+mb.. mine is 398mb (original is 512mb) short of 114mb that sucks..
-Graphics just okay, can play Temple Run 2 in low graphics though like 25-28fps
-800mhz Snapdragon on this kid is like 10mhz snapdragon 800 octa-core.. Suprisingly very slow..
-Camera like a ****
-Don't buy.. Thats it..
