its ridiculous what this phone has gone through the years of usage, still works as a backup tho :)
Love the compass sensor of this phone, it's really help me when doing some hiking stuffs in a mountain where there's no cellular support
still using this phone from sep 13. but now a days it shows lot of problems.
KILEELIKE, 28 Jun 2017Good phone.i used it for 4yrs...more durable than S7 edge.is not true to compare S7 and this phone Mr.
villu, 28 Nov 2016Bettery problem I uninstalled/disabled the stoke TouchWiz and installed an other launcher, it solved most of my hanging problems. I am using Apex Launcher.
N, 04 Dec 2016Had this phone for 4 years and it haven't got broken once but now it's very slow on display be... moreCouldn't find a cover either, so I bought a similar model's cover that suites the charging slot and camera perfectly then I made holes for Headset, Speaker and Flash using Hot Iron (Soldering Iron). works pretty good for me
noname, 30 Dec 2016oooooh lierI agree with you, yes its not as sophisticated as the new mobiles but its the Samsung equivalent of Nokia 1100. With my rough use, it falls around 2-3 times a days from my hand (butter fingers). but it works well. Bought a new battery after 2 years of use, watch video (low quality), light games, texting, its fine for a normal non-gamer, non-mobile-addict person.
5 years later, still working and gets the job done as a backup phone.
This is the worst phone I have ever used, the resolution is way too low, it's only a dual core, and it only has 1gb of ram.
I've gone to the Galaxy S5 now it it works great.
My frst smartphone
Bought this one 3 years ago
I loved it
Bt after some months it had some problems like battery backup hang
Bt overall it is awesome being my frst smartphone
company gives me this mobile. how about the condition of this mobile?
This was my first Android phone..this is the most reliable and long lasting phone. I purchased it in 2013 and still I am using this up till now.. many times this set has fallen from my hand but nothing happened to it. according to price it was better and cheaper. I love this phone.
This was my first Android mobile and I loved it alot.. its been four years m using this mobile and yes it had started some issues aftr 2 years of buying..like very poor battery backup..Storage problems.. but after that it started hanging.. over and over and it was literally unbearable. .. sometimes I used to thrw it in anger but but this handset has very strong body that it never breaks not a single crack...lol :D and now it cant handle the new updates of simple apps like whtsapp hike etc..:(
Anyways there are lots of memories with this mobile. . I love it anyway♥
Thanks Samsung.. I hope the new upcoming models must have all the improvements :)
been using this for 3 years, i don't like the camera resolution, battery life just for 2 hours max, can't install lots of stuff :(
Good phone, been using it for 3 yrs and 3 months now (since march 31st 2014). Still serving me well though I've changed d screen twice so far. The only problem I'm having now is its poor battery life. Hoping to see and buy an original battery as spare.
I have this phone for 3 years now. It was a good pone, but now it's just out of because there are newer, better phones...
adam cole, 27 Feb 2017lately my samsung core keeps on shutting down whenever i access an app esp. games. can someone... moreI'm sorry bro that's the truth about wear and tear. By now its been 4 years old, I also have this phone, but there is no fix for this. Unless you go back to Samsung and replace the hardware and the battery. By now this phone's battery should have reached 1600 charge cycles minimum considering this is charged everyday. Lithium Batterys are rated only up to 2000 charge cycles. Also shutting down is basically how rough you've used it. Dropping it loosens things. Mine doesn't do that, thankfully. It's time to buy a replacement. Replacements even the cheapest ones can out perform this no problem. So any Smartphone should do you good. My Recommendation. Samsung's J series, Asus' Zenphone Max, Moto G5, or any 2nd hand Good Condition FlagShip like the S6. Those have gotten cheaper due to the S8 coming out. Your Price point bro.
