aj star, 12 Sep 2016this mobile is so bad due to battry backup and ram I agree we can not play games on this device but i dont agree with battery backups problem. I have been operating this device for more than 3 years. I guess 3 years are enough for any smartphone to last. Switch to other device. Samsung Galaxy S Duos was pioneer of any smartphones since existence.

I did it, there is a very good you tube film, pause it at every stage when you are performing it.
You mobile phone will be brand new !!! Finally giving pleasure & joy.
mohit, 20 Aug 2016Plzzz make his upgrade in jellybean atleast plzzzzzz.Look for Cyanogen Mod 11 (RC3 or RC3+)
This will bring your phone to android 4.4.4 (kitkat)
A bit dissapointing at first. I bought it in dec 2012 for 267 euro. Too expensive for only a 4" handy. But its exchang integraiton , calendar allowed me to share my private agenda with the one in the office ! The 3G+ is nice, ok now we have 4G but at time of release having 3G+ (H/H+) is essential. Samsung at those times didn't provide updates for andoid OS beyond the version you had, and only limitted in time. Something they were forced to adopt in the new models (not in S3 though) as competition permitted it. So I needed to reset to factory default to regain speed. Its only single cor 1Ghz Cortex and ony has 750MB (net 632MB). So you simply can't run/install many programs, basically use it as is. The battery of 1500mAh is in the very low end. I discovered only at the release of pokemon go that you could root it and run it with a custom rom (Cyanogen mod 11 RC3)
Now my phone revived and it runs on average in the 300mb used range ! Combine with All in one toolbox I can even reduce its foorprint at boot time. I can even play to some extend Pokemon Go (all versions) as the custom rom had put in place Kitkat 4.4.4.
I bought a new battery , TPU case and carkit for it, I will use for my car for navigation (and give the Mio to my wife). I love it, as its my first smartphone, and it runs so smoothly since the Cyanogen mod 11 (RC3) that I even prefer it over my Samsung J3 2016 from my work
