its crazy a lot of people expecting a phone will last forever. its totally normal battery conked in 1.5-2 years. lag? its old spec, newer app mostly more resource demanding. be reasonable with ur complaint.
I used this phone for a year and i don't use this phone since last year because it doesn't have completed bluetooth function and ROM(storage) is too small. Since knew this i'm using my older brother's LG G2.
But this phone's merit is design and grip.I think that is enough to praise from everyone.
been having this phone for 2 years now,never gave me any problem except a few spontaneous restarts. I will replace it very soon since it's specs are quite poor for nowadays standards. Also it's very laggy and doesn't support software updates,no notification light and pretty poor camera. If you're looking for new samsung budget phone there are new 2016 models which are much better then WIN. I'm gonna go for Xiaomi Mi 3 pro redmi as it's quite cheap and has pretty high specs.
I have using this Phone since 2013 Sep. There was no complaint till Jan2016. now the battery gets drained very fast. if I charge full at night & even if I does not use, in morning battery will be drained. moreover it became very slow some of the apps takes longer time to open.
A very good mobile using since 2014 no issues with camera sound video oly problem is with battery life.
I've been using this mobile 2 years ago. very bad camera.battery drains fast. Doesn't support many apps as viber and others. DON'T BUY THIS IT'S AWFUL
i've been using this phone since dec,2013 until now..still working..but now it have some issues with the speaker..the sound can't be heard,but still can make a phone call..just to play a song or watch a movie need to use earphone..quite lag, im thinking of buying another phone if this broken..if not i will used it till the end :)
I see lot of haters here for this phone...Im been using this phone since Aug or Oct 2013...I dint face any major issues with the phone. The simple trick is to clean your phone for every 6 months and I recommend to root the device once its more than a year old..You can save or tranfer contacts and media files to system or another phone before doing this...I bought samsung edge 7 recently but I still use this phone for music and gaming purpose since I do not want install more apps on my new device..
shani, 10 Dec 2015If u buy this phone, u will never use samsung in ur whole life.After using 1 years the phone h... moreyou are absolutely correct... i faced exactly similar problems... i hate samsung too!!
any idea on Redmi note 3?
Horrible battery backup.... hangs a lot... very very slow.... and yes the memory gets full w/o downloading many apps too! completely useless phone ... absolute waste of money!
unfornulatly when phone is on it gone shut down and dont get power on . and this mobile get 10000s repairinng.
One of the worst nightmare and unluckiest day it was when i purchased this phone for 16500 k.. It has almost 2 years and now my vibration is not working... Heats very fast... Hangs alot... Battery backup is worst... Can't play 1080p video..and can't play even fl commando smoothly...
Worst phone ever...it is very slow...most of games not works perfectly....battery backup is also worst...it will be totally west of money on buying this phone...if you values your money don't west on this...
This phone is good.. I have been using since June 2013.
But it stopped vibrating recently. Also the processing speed has decreased.
Overall its good phone.
