I just got my official update straight from samsung service center just last month and it really works perfectly.so happy with this phone and loving it...jhel here from philippines
This is a very nice phone, I love it very much,after I had upgraded to JB it became unstable,I sent it to service centre to downgrade to GB then everything backs to normal.This phone is not suitable for JB.
there only one can make this phone perfect 32gb sd card....this is a midrange phone so stck to 2.3.6 gingerbread..i been using this phone for 1 year nowand its satisfied me..sometimes its freeze but i think its not the phone its the application you downloaded..
How do I transfer songs from PC to Ace 2 18160 and creating folders to segregate between English and Chinese songs?
This is the first time I am using Samsung mobile.
I have installed official jelly bean MG2 4.1.2 for galaxy ace2 through kies. Its really smooth than the gingerbread version. No freezing problems. But it consumes more ram. By default you have only 482mb ram. But you can increase that to 624mb. Go through the link below. After I increased my ram to 624mb, still my ram usage is more than 500mb without running any apps.
Al, 09 Dec 2013too late - it did it automatically. Every Jelly bean update for this phone is a disaster. dis... moreYes Al that is precisely the problem! Regret buying this phone, should have waited for a better deal.
ILA, 07 Dec 2013Dear Galaxy Ace 2 users don't upgrade to Jelly bean(4.1.2) os its very laggy ostoo late - it did it automatically.
Every Jelly bean update for this phone is a disaster. display keeps freezing for minutes at a time and usually when you need it urgently.
I've had three jelly been updates now - every one is bad.
I have used this phone for about a year now. Using Gingerbread at first, it ran very smoothly with no lags. However, after I updated it to Jelly Bean, it lags frequently and I usually have to wait about three minutes for it to respond again. Overall, it was a very bad experience for me. I suggest the HTC Desire 601 which have better specs and a lower price.
waiting for the Official KitKat update for our Galaxy Ace 2. can't wait :D
