This is actually a very good phone indeed, the issues people have reported are due to the phone being used "as is" out of the box with the default "one size fits" all default standard set up. To make it fast and keep battery consumption to a minimum only install essential applications that you will ACTAULLY use and remove the ones you wont, for example i replaced the TFL app, bbc news and bbc sport apps with just url shortcut links to the equivalent web page pages. After finishing installing the required apps and removing not needed apps you could also disable the Google play store and services which will further help performance. If you spend some time disabling all the other useless Samsung & Google services and applications and then time to tweek and tune the phone further it is actually a very fast phone indeed with good battery life. Enable the developer options and disable all the animations and also select a number to limit of background processes you are comfortable with, i have got away with having only 1 background process running without any problems, keep the brightness as low as you feel you can also remember the screen timeout to be kept low, check how often your email is synching and adjust accordingly, switch off the GPS, bluetooth and wireless if its not needed as well. These are some of things i have done and the phone has performed over the last 12 months very quickly without ever hanging and only needs charging every 2 days. Good Luck.

Don't buy this phone
If you will buy this set, you will experiences the following issues:
1. After five or six mouths, the battery backup gradually decreases and phone will switch off on reaching 15%.
2.it starts hanging and you will have to unintall your needy apps due to less internal memory.
3.from recent weeks, their is another problem that it first hang and then switch off often when battery is nearly 60%, and switch on with remaining battery as 30% or 15% or sometimes 2% also.
Now i m trying to give it to samsung service centre and warning you not buy this phone.
