I have this exact phone and have had it for about 2 years. It can be laggy at times but my battery can last up to 3 days but also have 3700 songs on a 32 gb memory card with minimum issues. So all of you are wrong. Its a great first phone.
This is the worst phone of the world. it will take another 100 years to make such a phone again.
This is an amazing phone. It only lags when you want to make a call, text, watch a video, surf the internet, connect to wifi, download something, press the home button, press the sleep button, etc. Not to mention the 3 hour battery life that runs up to 15% then randomly dies on you is amazing. Best of all its extremely hard to break. So no matter how hard you whip at a tree or the ground, it will NEVER BREAK. BEST PHONE EVERRRRR. (obvious sarcasm)

Crashes all the time, it' so slow, freezes when conected to internet, sometime blockes when someone call,
poor battery life.
I just want to broke it and flush it into the toilet!!!
Horrible phone. I've never had such hatred in my life more than towards this phone. At random when it rings, I swipe to take the call and it does not respond in time; the call ends up going to voicemail by the time it responds to your 50 swipes. It randomly fails to pair with bluetooth devices that it paired just fine for weeks at a time or might have been OK 1 hour ago. On occasion, it tries to remain connected to a WiFi connection 50 miles away and kills the battery doing it. I'm telling you, don't get this phone unless you are prepared to bring in an old priest and a young priest for a full exorcism on this phone. It seems to be possessed and if nothing else bad for your mental health. The only good thing I can say about it is it is tough; I have done myself bodily injuries trying to destroy it without it even getting a scratch. Because of my experience with this phone, I will never touch another samsung product as long as I live.
this phone sucks! I have it for a year now and im telling u its the worst Samsung phone ever made (I guess) its way too slow, its lagging and it freezes whenu open social nets such as facebook and twitter IT CRASHES! and when u browse on google it suddenly ditches and went back to the home screen im like WTF?! but anyways..the camera is pretty good coz I took a lot of nature pics but the storage was awful..its only available for 2gb phone storage..i regret getting this even tho I saved money for this BUT THIS PHONE IS A PIECE OF CRAP!! I suggest u not to buy it! u better get s3 mini instead of this (they have similarities in characteristics but the specifitations was obviously greater) I hope they could make this even more better
acts up a lot of times... slowest phone ever... freezes a lot of times too. you will be better of by buying a nokia flip-phone instead of this guy. one good thing about it is that it is pretty tough and won't crash when you drop it. but that's the only good thing...
Just threw a hissy fit at mine and threw it as hard as I could against my wall.......what a piece of junk....I do not normally have a bad temper either but this thing is pushing my buttons really hard......no storage space,.......slower than cold molasses running uphill in January......and now it does not recognize my chargers and I have tried 2 and different outlets all with the same result........Useless piece of Junk ever........I guess you get what you pay for.....they paid me a hundred dollars to take this one so I should have knowen.....I could go on, but I think you know where I stand on this....THX
Worst phone on the market. You are way...WAY better off buying a Moto g or even an S2, as this lags in the most basic functionality. Coming as an experienced developer and contributor in the ace 2x field, I am happy to say that at least some development is going on. If you get this phone, you may want to consider trying out one of the roms available for this phone, as it will certainly help the performance.
The phone lacks every basic aspect. Camera quality is pretty bad. There is no such thing as 1080p at 30FPS. If you are lucky, you may get 20fps on the video. CPU is disgusting with its single-core 1ghz. GPU is regurgitating in terms of horribleness (you'll be lucky to play angry birds at 15fps). 2GB of storage is not enough to even store the basic apps. Resolution and design are probably the best part of this phone, and they are not even that good.
I feel bad for anyone who even dares to think about getting this phone. Buy some other phone, as this phone lacks normal functionality.
I remember the first day I got my phone from Koodo. The employee was unlocking the screen, and I noticed that it took almost 5 seconds to unlock. I asked why it took so long, and she said that it just booted up and it needs to warm up. It didn't boot up although. It booted up 15 minutes before she unlocked the screen, so it gave a pretty negative first impression.
In conclusion, never get this phone. You are better off getting a phone that runs gingerbread, as that will be faster than this. Moto G is another great option. The Moto G is fast and durable, and can support day-to-day apps without any struggle.
Just a quick comment on my Samsung GT-S7560M phone. It appears to be no longer available so I have contacted the company to see if there is a compatible USB cable for transferring my phone camera pics. I do like the mobile phone, it has so many features that cater to lots of people. The reason for getting a cable is that, unknown to me, there was no SD card in the phone so I was using the phone as my storage unit. I hope to get that corrected soon, thanks.
Spencer, 20 Sep 2014Don't buy this phone. I've had this phone for about two years and i seriously regret ever wast... moreI will join you in shooting this POS phone. I feel like stomping it like a tap dancing elephant every time this piece of crap lags on me.
This is the worst phone I've ever, ever, EVER had. It lags incredibly much - Just read other reviews on this. Please don't buy it, saving up some more money is 1000% worth it if you'll be able to purchase another phone.
It's the slowest phone ever. When someone calls, the first time you won't be able to pick it up because the phone lags. Sometimes you can't even call because it freezes and you have to remove the battery and reinsert it.
Everytime it lags your best best is to restart it, but still, in 10 minutes it's back to being awful.
Can't even think about playing a game in this phone, terrible sensitivity and touch lag. Maps is super slow, very frustrating when you want to locate yourself and enter an address.
Please don't buy this phone, I'm seriously going to detonate it when I buy a new one.
Totally slow says it's picking up 4g but I doubt it can't even Skype crap
Don't buy this phone. I've had this phone for about two years and i seriously regret ever wasting my time and money on this piece of dump. It worked fine for maybe 3 months with only minor problems but with only 2gb of storage space you can't really download any apps if you have more than 200 photos. Recently, my battery started expanded which happens to most phones after a period of time. This gives the phone a battery life of 2% after unplugging from a charger. I filled up my phones small storage space with photos in the first month and it won't even let you access your photos so you can delete them. I honestly hope that if you are considering buying this phone I hope you change your mind. As soon as I get an iphone I'm taking this phone to the gun range and shooting it.
By far the most temperamental phone I've ever used. It's true that restarting it can speed the phone up, but that doesn't work half the time.
This phone barely does what it's designed to. It lags to ridiculous proportions when picking up or making calls. In several cases, someone called me, and the phone call didn't show up on the screen. I had to manually unlock the screen and go to the phone app to pick it up. By the time I got there, the person hung up.
This phone also has a tendency of deleting the numbers you dial when you press the call button, i.e. the number just disappears, the phone doesn't even bother calling that contact, the problem doesn't get fixed when you restart the phone.
It also lags severely when moving around apps or using a fairly simple app like google chrome. This includes scrolling, typing, activating the lock screen and getting out of the lockscreen.
