I initially bought this android phone because I had no money for a better one. But I tell you; I'd rather keep my old dumb phone than have this one.
I understood how slow this phone was the second I turned it on for the first time.
I don't have many apps installed (on the contrary, I only have facebook app and facebook messenger) and it runs SO slow.
On the other day I literally waited 20 minutes for facebook messenger app to open and when it did, I wasn't even able to type a single letter for another 15 min because the device was so slow. I spent about 50 minutes waiting for the app to run normally but I just gave up; the app crushed 4 times in the process.
My time is valuable, and I hate Samsung for even create this damned thing.
I just get angry and frustrated when I use my own phone and that is a TERRIBLE experience.
I look forward to the day I'm able to buy a better android phone (which no way it will be a Samsung) so I can completely destroy the one I have with a hammer.

DESPERATE FOR HELP.
I've been using this phone for about a year now but since last month I've been getting messages that tell me that a certain app has stopped when trying to access it. It started with Gmail like two months ago when I was trying to access my mail it will just say " Unfortunately, Gmail has stopped" and then go back to the home screen. Didn't care much about that telling myself that it will get back to its normal stateovertime, now I'm very worried coz it's now happening to the contacts. When I wanna check am airtime balance or make a call it just says "Unfortunately, contacts has stopped" or "Unfortunately, process.com has stopped" now people please help me fix this. I find my phone very useless now that I can't make calls nor even see my airtime balance. PLEASE HELP.
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2015I have been using this phone for the last one year .It is a very slow one and had deceived man... moreActually it is a nice phone for affordable price , even though there are some issues in this device. Given ram is 512mb but jelly bean is has been loaded,this makes the phone getting heated. Been in such a small size phone it happens.. And it is only 1GHZ processor has been given sothis speed occurs ofcourse... So I like this for my given rate.. Me too found many issues but OK for price..

Jan, 20 Sep 2015Very slow, battery drains very quickly and why is there no GPS installed? I thought this was ... moreI am not able to make calls on my phone. It is not responding when I tap it so as to allow me type. It has locked and I can't type my code to unlock. But I can receive calls. What might be the problem? How do I correct it?
Totally disappointed. I've been using dis fone for last 2 years. Even Nokia 1100 is better than dis!
Very slow, battery drains very quickly and why is there no GPS installed? I thought this was standard on modern phones. Considering changing phones so I can get the service I require.
My deep condelence with people who ever used or using this phone ...
