Good phone and good specs. Just a little laggish and battery
drains so quickly. :-(
This is certainly a phone with quite good features in budget price but it heats up in second as you turn on the phone, even one can not talk without earphone because the screen heats so much, absolutely no no !

If you guys are looking for a pretty high end gadget, then go with it - Instead of posting bad comments. Gaming gadget then go with tablets and / or Laptops / Desktops.

I'm using this phone for about 40+ days and i can say its pretty darn good. It was a good thing i didnt listen to these comments and bad rewievs. Anyways, my experience has been great with this device and i will try to clear some things now for you guys who use it and who are planning to buy.
1st. AS far as i noticed it doesnt hang at all. i have played Gangstar Vegas, Asphalt 8, Asphalt 7, GTA Vice City, Respawnables, Colin McRace, Minecraft, Riptide GP2, Farming Simulator 2014, Scribblenauts Remix, Naught 2, Pocket Rally, and Fruit Ninja, with and whitout the "forced GPU rendering" option and it never hanged once, except in GTA Vice City when entering a car but thats a no big deal! ALSO you guys often forget that you put your phone to Power Saving mode wich limits the processors usage and then phone gets laggy and you complain! more about this in 2nd step where i talk about battery.
CONCLUSION: It doesnt hang! only sometimes on power saving mode but thats if you are going with very heavy usage! and as you can see its not even that bad for gaming! HAHA!
2nd. Battery is alright, for my needs its alright, but i went out to test its limits with heavy use and yeah, heavy use is a heavy use and you can expect much. But moderate use is best, i go through a day and a half sometimes! A nice thing that this phone has is a "Power Saving mode", yes it will limit the usage of your processor and it might get laggy when playing games but come on... its going to save you lots of battery. it helped me a lot in past 3 days, durning massive floods here and electricity crisis. i remember that i had about 90% left of battery when electricity went out in whole town and i decided to switch to power saving mode. I didnt charge it since then untill today when we got electricity back. So this thing lasted 3 days for me! it was 45% today when i put it to charge. i did use it somewhat low to moderate because i was afraid the electricity wont come back anytime soon...
CONCLUSION: Battery is OK! its actually great if you are going to treat this phone nicely. Power Saving mode is great but if you are going to heavy use it i suggest you to clear the RAM first for a smooth experience.
3rd. is for evry phone and not just this one. i would suggest, when you are done with your day to turn it off for couple minutes. and about evry 3 to 5 days to remove the battery and leve it like that for 10 to 20 minutes to get a nice rest.
With this phone you have to remember to clear the RAM before heavy usage!
Thats about it, this phone is great, i like it, yes its not the best and yes there are better phones for almost the same price. I'm not gonna be the only one here who is mentioning the Moto G, but with that you dont really have a nice touchwhiz freatures that come with this and other Samsung phones. I love the phone and i know how to use it and how to take care of it wich is probably the most important thing!
I'm not going to talk about the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean here because for me its not that much important, yes this phone might and probably will get 4.4 Kit-Kat update when Galaxy Core 2 arrives (that has 512mb RAM), because Samsung Touchwhiz UI reskins it totaly!
Thanks for reading!
