I have been using this phone for more than 3 years now!
I bought it when it was a few months old and had Android 2.3 on it. Great phone for its time. I have rooted the phone and upgraded to many ROMs but the official Jelly Bean ROM from Google is the most stable one.
This is a die hard phone:
In 3 years of usage i have dropped this phone numerous times onto the street, hard concrete, and also into a swimming pool twice. The phone has survived all the accidents and it is working just fine, its hardware is actually immortal!
Most problems with this phone are software based and if you root it you can do almost anything you want with it and bring it back to life again and again.
Memory management has got a lot better if you install the unofficial Android KitKat on it (Cmod 11).
I was considering upgrading to a nexus 5 but Nexus 5 is a fragile phone; its screen crashes in the simplest drop tests.
I think I should wait for the next Nexus phone since I cant stand the customized interfaces of non-Nexus phones and their lags and clogged environment.
Hassan121, 27 Jul 2014Hi all!. I'm buying a phone tomorrow. And I'm confused about Nexus S and Galaxy Star Pro.. Help!Yes it is i think late but if not so go with nexus s in terms of specs and not on specs but features and performance is much much better on nexus s even you don't have the 3g option on star and it lags alot you face it after 10 days of use and if lucky so in 2 days. star pro having a wifi direct feature which is not workable at all it is useless it have some of the binary problem which makes it hardware not capable to sync with software . I techy guy and have alot of videos on youtube for devices review including this one and i would like to tell that i putting claim on it for wifi direct and software tomorrow and makes all the documents for that. rest at you

There you see android bootloader where you can factory reset your phone and it will work again...
first switch off your phone and charge it;if it now showing battery icon;then do some following and report me if it works.
1) ok sometimes what happens when battery sudden goes down;then it does not start by plugin charger;plug a usb cable to computer then it shows charging;after that charge using charger it will works.so first try it.
2)if it not works; then connect the phone into pc;then charging icon will show;if not try to replace the cable and check it works/not.
if these thing not works report me;i will give you another solution.contact me to my firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there no solution to your product that went bad? If there is no solution then why are we patronizing Samsung? I need you people to proffer me a solution that will make the phone work again even if it will cause me to pay some money
