I've had this phone for a year, and it's crap. Its so bad to use in the summer or if you have sweaty hands in general. Plus its a pain in the ass to text with if you have fat fingers or any type of fingers. Its alright if you dont want to do much on it, but if you want to use social media, take photos and do everything on it, probably not the best thing

I have been using this cellphone for 4 years now. And i can say that it's quite sturdy. Will resist most falls to the ground with little trouble. Too bad it's becoming outdated quite fast, as it can't run modern apps. Forget about games too.

- facebook.
- whatssapp latest version is possible but is not fast.
- no games (to low processor for it).

the other options all work fine I have a good experience with samsung so. i think it is a good phone for just calling and sms massages. for the other option you can better take a stronger cell phone like the S3 or S4

I had some apps such as Twitter, Viber, etc. in my phone but after I format the phone, I couldn't find these apps in the Market (Play Store). Why is it so? How can I get it back?

If you upgrade it to 4.4 it's not that bad. Still quite slow but it is faster than the firmware it comes with.

the phone works fine with 4.2.1 android but you cant play any game with more than 15mb because it has very small amount of ram free
original rom is crap and cyanogenmod7,2 is the best performance rom for this little beast
