I discovered a reason why rooted galaxy s duos slows down or hangs.
Go to apps > my files > all files > SD cards > DCIM. While here, click menu and scroll to settings option. You click on 'show hidden files' and go out of menu options.
You will find, in DCIM, a folder called thumbnails. I found out that every time I open gallery and look at pictures or share them, thumbnails folder generates a massive 1.8 to 2.0gb thumbnails file which fills up my internal memory.
This slows down every operation and function of my device. Shutting down is even a problem. I am yet to find an app to solve this issue. It is even worse than cache file accumulation.
You cannot move apps to external SD card on this phone (rooted or unrooted). You cannot, I repeat, move apps to external SD card on this phone. No app2sd or tricks works. Period!
This is another reason why internal memory fills up fast. Only files, photos and videos can go to external sd card.
Well, I have been using this phone from last 1.2 years. The phone is very slow in its processing and the gaming lags a bits.
The main problem I faced is the hardware key,it becomes unresponsive after a year.
The phone is small in its internal storage.
And it promises to give jellybean but haven't received yet.
i think this phone is awesome for the people who want to spend money at middle range.
friends use the bsnl internet and then u see this phone speed and anything is ok try

hey guys there is only one solution for your all problems.... root your phone.
after rooting you can install 'Seeder' to remove all the lag.
'foldermount' for playing heavy games while keeping the data on ext-sd card.
rooting will solve all your problems.
The only problem i found is regarding the storage.all application downloaded is going to fone memory.its just near 2gb or something like that.now its full.how can i move to card memory
