dhm, 09 May 2013Hi guys.I am greatly confused between s advance and xperia j.I am not much into heavy using an... moreS Advance
Screen- Super AMOLED (Great viewing angles.Deepest/darkest blacks. Vivid display but suffers slight pixelation).
Battery- Good. Can run a whole day under moderate usage.
Camera- 5MP with HD recording.
Screen- LCD TFT[NO BRAVIA ENGINE(In GSM arena's specs,Bravia engine is listed as present but it's a mistake. Just read the display review)].
Good display. Bad viewing angles
But, the main disadvantage is it doesn't even support HD 720p videos. So, even if the screen is good, u can't experience it completely.
Battery- Good.(Slightly better than S Advance).
Camera- 5MP. No HD video recording. One more thing, Xperia J is worst even for casual gaming.
So, There is no confusion. Go for S Advance.
But, if u want just display, battery & Cam, try lumia mobiles.
They r better than these two.(If no bluetooth & no SD card slot option is okay for u.)
This is really a great phone, I am posting this review from the same device, that too with the awesome Swype keyboard. The best thing that ever happened to this device was the jelly bean update, I am loving project butter. Other smart phones in this range are not worth it, they might look more beautiful from the distance, but they lack performance. This has a dual core CPU paired with 768 MB of RAM. Everything is smooth, people saying this phone lags are noobs. DDULP firmware works great. Xperia J is really slow compared to this phone as it has A5 CPU while toys has A9.
What will happen if we install S2 android os in S advance...?
have anyone tried this...?
Thanks in advance....
When is those of us in Africa getting our share of Jellybean? And if we finally get it,can i upgrade just by using the phone's software updater? or i can only do it by kies?
Hi guys. Pls help me! Planning to buy this phone in a couple of days but kinda get confused after reading ur opinions about the OS. So pls tell me guys if I buy that phone should I remain with GB or upgrade it to JB?? Is it worth it to upgrade it? Some of u said GB is better but others said JB is quite good and I'm confused right now so which one is better? Do reply to this. Tq!
For all those who experience network problems with s advance please set your Network Selection Mode to GSM Only then you'll not face any network problem again..
I've recently purchased this cell but I've some issue. The internet automatically goes deactivate. Please help me to resolve this. Is this because I keep on clearing RAM. ??? I've not yet upgraded to jelly bean. Please help as it's irritating now!!
Hi guys.I am greatly confused between s advance and xperia j.I am not much into heavy using and just want good screen,decent battery life and good camera. Please
help your friend out
Works fine with GB.If you want an update do it officially and by cable.Now about phone,wonder where the RAMs are going if Samsung says 555mb are available and fresh restarted takes 200 to run,so 555 to 768?Strange...Now 8gb where?Since i can only use 1,9?Oddd...With little atention this phone could have been great,but Samsung always does some things halfway apart on flagships:automatic brightness varies so much at a point indoor looks washed but on the sun still lack something,nice curve design but cheap pattern batery cover.Reliable batery,nice camera,good sound.
It has been 3 months since i updated my s advance's firmware to jellybean. At first, i was so unsatisfied. Lots of lags, especially when watching videos. But after doing a reset and clearing cache, everything went smooth! I just love how smooth it is, although there are rare times that it hangs. But it's worth it.
jellybean update is not proper . my cell is lagging a lot evn though i have installed not more than 4-5 apps.....it totally stops ur phone, no touch sensitivity also loading problm.....bt cell is best wid its 2.3.6 update...
KARTY, 08 May 2013plan to buy s advance . Is it worthy or not? anybody having network problem after updating JB... morenever update to jelly bean.I have updated and too much problems started. Now 32GB memory card not supporting, opening camera it is hanging,phone also hanging , some applications also hanging, phone operating now very badly
[deleted post]you will need to upgrade your phone to jellybean cause in future the apps which would be released in the play store would require 4.0+ os to work
fani, 07 May 2013Bz phone take load when I open contacts or gallery. ..........and also I m facing hanging prob... moreHi fani, if u want to go back to GB, follow the steps in my previous post. Trust me, u can safely downgrade back to GB. I had already downgraded my mobile successfully.
abhishekpatra, 08 May 2013What is the difference between GPU Mali 400MP and Mali 400Mali 400MP is also known as Mali 400.
I think u r asking this question 'cause u r trying to compare S Advance with S2.right!!?
Well,here's the answer.S2 has a quad core Mali 400MP GPU but S Advance's GPU is just single core.
rms, 08 May 2013Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, i`m in the same situation as you regarding buying... moreI am a heavy user but i have maintained my Nokia n82 for five years and still no complaint. I have almost hacked cracked and done every kind of stuff to it. But, in my opinion, if you are a heavy user, then don't go for jelly bean update in samsung galaxy s advance. If you use phone mildly then jellybean update can be done. But i am sure that the better the update the lesser the ram available for use. If ram isn't your concern then go for the update dude..
