I have had two different phones of this same model and both times it has failed me. The reason I bought it a second time was for all the good things with the phone.

I am now sure that there is something wrong with the model and not only with the two phones I had. A thing that already should be a warning is that Samsungs assuruance for the battery only lasts 6 months. And not long after 6 months my phone has started to fail me. Both times. The phone only works when charging and not always then either. If I don't have it connected with a charger it immidiately dies. If it doesn't die immidiately, it can just die spontanuosly.

Otherwise it's a great phone. But please don't buy it the batteri problems aren't worth it.

Worst mobile ever I had! Very slow while on games, okay on films, battery is worst of all I had to replaced new battery 3 times as it will be flat in 2-3hrs if only on games and leave it through night will flat battery. I rated it 2 of 10. Time for me to get N6 or Moto X 2014!

Nice phone, however need to re-start every second day. Very frustrating as you miss messages and calls

if you wants to see your videos and photos that you transferred to the memory card, go to your file manager copy the exact name of the directory , and create the folder also in your memory card. ..you will surely see your files in your gallery

the respond time gets slower as I add apps which I expect, so i went to move some of them to my SD card and it says "Unfortunately, your device doesn't support moving apps"....why is this cheaper & lesser known brand of phones have this capability & samsung doesn't?...can this be resolved with an update? if not can you please recommend how I can get my phone's respond time to speed up without harming it.

Thank you
