Below average phone but it is stable with some lagging issues. Rooting it will only worsen the situation. Gets considerably heated when it is operated while being charged. Normal for scarce use. Battery gets drained too much quickly. Approximately 7 percent in every 10 to 15 mins while playing hd games with full brightness.
Overall Below average phone.

Can i make my phone as hang free...anyway thank you for ur opinion..
Lemme share my experience.
I have this phone for about a year until I decided to sell it. I have no grudge for Samsung, like at all but this phone just sucks. It lags a lot, hang a lot, I have rooted it and all, but apparently it's over and there is nothing I could do again.
If you want cheap but kicking phone, you better go for Lenovo a369i ot a316i, I have both and they just works awesomely considering the price.
Hope this is helpful.

(some ram management app requires root access)

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2015please provide the rooting swi mean you can change your rom and kernel to use applications for performance boosting.
but be aware, flashing wrong rom can brick your device.
some application needs a compatible rom to be able to boost your device.
most of that application needs root access and are not available in "playstore"
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2015please provide the rooting swjust search on the net dude.
i'm a bit lazy to provide it cauz i'm in school now answering my seatwork. LOL
PinoyBlackHat, 05 Jan 2015this phone runs well when rooted properly. trust me! ( ican play hardcore games in 23-69 fpssorry cause i cant provide a screen shot.
as of now i have played the game called "virtua tennis" in multiplayer(bt) with minimal fps drop.
but if you plan to use this device for gaming purpose, i may not recommend this one cause i think it only suit for everyday use such as texting, calling etc. well, 2mp cam is not good for selfies! LOL
