I have been using this device from the past 5 years....Awesome phone..during the time it was released..very handy,light and has a beautiful AMOLED display...the rear facing camera is still a good one...
I have changed the battery 3 times..But what so ever still.using this as my primary device..waiting for a good upgrade...still lasts a day on typical usage..
The only Cons are its laggy due to less memory and cant store more number of apps..Overall a very awesome device.
I have been using this phone for past 3 years without cover, just a plastic screengaurd.
Amoled touchscreen offers best touch and visibility . Vivid colours and readability in Sun.
Slight curved design .
Have dropped phone a coupe of times without any case/ protection / tampered glass; No sign of crack.
Overall built qulity good. sturdy body lasts long.
750MB -Ram mag. Lags a lot .
Software related. Cant use many today's apps.
Battery drains quickly as 1500mah. I've installed S2 or S3 battery of 1600~ mAh by removing the bottom plastic peice of battery. Have been using for 6 months and no prob.
Bought this in april 2012. Still going good. No issues whatsoever apart from the fact that it could not be ugraded after gingerbread.
When i use my other 5'+ screen phones, im grateful that i didnt dispose this one.
its light weight , single handedly operatable , and not once does it heat up considering that its almost five years old.
The battery is in proper shape, lasting a day and more even now , with all the power consumig apps and the wifi on the whole day. Has never showed signs of excessive heating up compared to the power hungry processors and screens of todays phone. Seems like ill keep this for another half a decade , probably.
All that i have typed about the phone may be completely irrelevant in 2016 , since the indsutry has leaped humungously since this phone was out.
Its more like a tribute to this phone, since it was and still is an absolute pleasure using it , even in 2016.
now why not support imo please check version and start imo in samsung advance
I had bought this device 4 years ago. It's good but ram management is an issue . Also, the battery is kind of annoying . I've changed the battery for 3 times after all these years. Unfortunately, I definitely have to upgrade and replace it with a better phone due to its low android version.
Just bought it last night,luckily it no yet upgrade to 4.1,still using android os 2.3.6.No lag,hang problem at all,screen clear because is super amoled screen,front and back camera is okay also for normally use.Good device.
This was the very best phone (in that time). I had to change it (two years later) because the battery was leak. I'd wish find an actual similar cell.

Now used my i9070 for 5 years and preparing to buy a New model. It has now become slow but am grateful for the service it has given me over the years.
world's number one worst phone. full time hangout and call receiving is very late... worst product in Samsung s advance i9070..
Great phone, but outdated, I'm still using it now after 4 years, but now it overheats and probably going to buy some new model

Ultra, 20 May 2016Bad phone, don't buy it people, it lags, I changed system on 2.3.6 and now it don't lags but I... moreYou have a phone that came out in 2012, you put an outdated OS on it, and you have the courage to complain about it? You really need to think twice before saying this phone sucks, I got it and still works fine.
Bad phone, don't buy it people, it lags, I changed system on 2.3.6 and now it don't lags but I can't download lots of apps and I have to reboot him every day to receive calls. 1gb of ram is really small and under 1.5gb ram phone is sucks.
