Got this phone when launched and still using it now!
I just replaced the battery once last year.
I'm using 19158 which bought in 2016 in Hong Kong, before that it I used 19152 and used for several years until I crashed the lens accidentaly. Both Mega 5.8 phones I used are performing well, though battery needs to replaced after 1-2 years usage, and that's normal case to most lithium batteries. I really like that first the screen size is large, second is the light weight (even lighter than many other phones with smaller screen); and the pricing is very reasonable.
I have the modified version of this mobile which is i9152p (Mega plus) and although the specifications are the same as i9150 and the manual mentioned that it has no radio facility
i succeeded to make it operate a radio without connection to the internet but using a chineese software sometimes and the program named fspirit from google store . of course I should connect an earphone to work as antenna .
when the mobile heats up , I found that the reason is one of these things :
1- bad battery
2- cracked software (when the mobile hung up i downloaded an arabic cracked firmware)
3- Bad charger
4- bad charging cable
when I eliminated these reasons and revert back to the chineese original software
the mobile performed satisfactorily .

Anonymous, 07 Feb 2017the phone interior and the exterior only last for 3 months. the battery is no good
Im using this phone for more than 4 years..
Using this phone for 2-3 years and about to get new other smartphone because:
1. Battery drains fast
2. Camera bad quality, can't capture in low light
3. Often lag because of the RAM problem, very small
4. Overheat most of the time
5. The power button is loosed, can't worked anymore
It has fallen several time and surprisingly the screen didn't cracked, only the body which made of plastic has cracked. The screen is barely can be scratched.

Anonymous, 02 Jan 2017I am using galaxy mega 5.8 dual SIM which SIM will support 3G. SIM 1 or SIM 2 ?You make the setting under settings > more networks > Mobile Networks >
settings can be made to SIM1 or SIM2
NB .. when you set one SIM (either 1 or 2) to auto-connect or WCDMA, THE OTHER SIM is set to 2G.
Most carriers as of 12/31/2016 have dropped 2G support and the result is THE OTHER SIM cannot make a network connection (error "Not registered on network")
I'm looking for a replacement but will really miss my Mega 5.8. IT TOOK ME SEVERAL DAYS TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF WHY ONE OF MY PHONE NUMBERS (SIM) WOULD ALWAYS HAVE THE "NOT REGISTERED ON NETWORK" ERROR.
I'm using my phone as a regular single sim phone and forwarding the other sim calls to the working sim. Good Luck.
