Great phone. I used it for 3 years, only replaced it when increasingly it seemed a little slow. It has a compass (useful for astronomy apps) which my newer phone lacks. Used it for taking notes and recordings during a trip to Cuba. Actually like its smaller size.
the best phone i have ever used, i have used it for 3yrs now and mine problem is it heat a lot when you are browsinge the bat,but now the phone is off and it cannot on back again and ive changed the battery but still it cannot power on,so i think my phone is dead now
I am still using this phone. Have not seen anything that looks that fantastic enough to upgrade to, and have had no complaints with this so why change. Decide what your needs are and find a phone that meets them. This one does most of what the rest do, for a much better price.

Many reviews of it online seems like they prove it's great capability for your needs. The camera quality is decent as well, yet the focus isn't very good. Other than that, it looks like a handy phone to do the job
Here's a video comparing it's battery life against the s8 phones and the Galaxy A7
Superb phone. Should cost more, in my opinion. Excellent battery life, indestructible screen, (seriously, it literally refused to crack when i dropped it flat, without my case, onto a concrete surface.) everything else is average, but nonetheless an amazing phone. Would recommend.
Highly recommend this phone because of it has good specs, ram memory, for a great price.
I've had one of these for about 2 years or so, and it just won't die. I've dropped it numerous times on concrete, and all it did was dent the sides and corners. And with Greenify you can make the battery last for a few days. My only gripes are that the screen is a MONSTER power hog, and the Lollipop update these were supposed to get in Q3/Q4 of 2015 never actually came into fruition.
I mistakenly broke the internal LED on my phone so the screen is messed up but this phone serviced me well for almost three years. It does get hot at times but it charges fast, it has a good amount of space, and it's easy on the eyes and the hands. Great display. My only complain, besides the overheating is the poor camera(s). Besides that, this could be a phone that works for most if not all. Definitely recommend!
An amazing phone for the money , especially since there are so many used phones out there. I have dropped this phone countless times in a lack luster plastic case and it "keeps on ticking'. It has every feature i needs as 'geezer user' though some of newern Samsung technology might be better for pulling in a weak signal a problem out hear in SW Idaho where towers are far apiece'.

You actually have to force stop it by the app manager.

The games and social media apps constantly runs in the back ground. So all you need to do is go to Setting->Application Manager and select "FORCE STOP" those apps. You were running out of RAM Memory. That should solve your problem.

If you phone case is on, maybe your phone case does not dissipate heat well, so remove your phone case.
Stop battery , 02 Nov 2016360 security yes,get samsung galaxy s6. After S7 came out, the S6 price dropped.
This phone works great. I had this phone for about 4 years and it just stopped working today. I was really rough on it and it has a small barely noticeable crack in the screen. I wish i could get another one like this because i served me well
