There are only some positives for the phone the negatives are more.
1. Dead Slow (Contacts opening, Menu...etc.)
2. Phone is getting hang when receiving call.
3. Internet connection problem.
4. web pages getting stuck while scrolling.
1. Good design and the piece is stylish.

I have tested this phone and these are the solutions for the music breakage,lag and apps moving to SD problems.
1.Music Breakage - If you want to listen to music use only the music app and close all the remaining apps and clear the Ram memory i.e., by holding the center button and swiping those apps.
2.Lag - Lag is common with this phone since it is a single core but it can be avoided by the following.
Always close the apps after using and dont let more than 5 apps to run in the backround.Do this and you wont experience a lag
3.Apps can be moved to SD card only if you root the device but you may lose your warranty if you do that and also you might put your device into risk.So dont root unless you have the exact knowledge about it.
Do understand its a Single core and expert performance accordingly.
It is my personal phone and taken into testing for two weeks for the people of GSM Arena and these are the solutions.
This phone is Awesome if you know how to use it.
SE Fan, 06 Dec 2012I have encountered the same but I'm still satisfied with this phone since there's solution to ... moreGo to sim card manager. Just activate your smart dual sim system by giving your dual mobile phone numbers and give tick mark to receive incoming calls. Now restart your phone. I think network problem will be solved.
If you delete your background running application with the help of task manager, the phone will be faster. This is an awesome phone if you can use it properly.
I've just got my S Duos two days ago and here is my experience
-The Phone looks pretty awesome and it deserves to get the title "King of Samsung Smart Phones" regarding the looks
-Screen resolution is very satisfactory
-Smooth handling of menues, no lagging observed
-Pretty good Camera and flash
-web browsing is fast so is download
-The only dark side of this piece that it does not support HD Video but MX Player from Play Store solved this
-Although MX Player solved the image problem, the sound of the video interrupt at regular basis.
-Dual SIM function is very good
-All in All, a Nice Phone to Have

Its a reply to ''shianne'' who asked S duos or S 2... so.. Certainly S2.. i m using it from last 6 months.. its as smooth as anything... only d problem is with the battery life, which i think is the universal problem for all the fones with the big screen and heavy processor.. the battery lasts only a day..
