Excellent phone, except that it's NOT water resistant despite all claims. I dropped mine into a small pond of about 10 cm depth, and it went blank for a day, even though the back plate was properly secured. After leaving it to dry, its home button is not working now.
I also had the same battery calibration problem mentioned above, but buying a replacement battery solved it.
In Hungary, you can get this phone for the equivalent of about 200 Euros with a 1-year basic warranty. For this price, the Galaxy A3 is a MUCH better deal.
Can you think anything more unreliable than a cat flying a plane? Oh I can... This phone.
I have the same problem... The battery percentage is not accurate at all, sometimes the phone turns off at 15%. I've noticed that the accuracy gets worse if I don't fully charge the phone. Otherwise it works as expected, but this is quite annoying
Help me to find a way of transferring the songs which are playing on online music into my laptop file.

zsolt, 20 Apr 201685% - 9.3daysI agree. Since the update to lollipop battery lasts a bit less, around 36-40 h average which is anyhow enough for my needs.
However I have noticed that from around 15 % the battery consumption is much faster than in the rest of the range and I have to plug it quickly. Looks like battery level is not properly calibrated. Anyone having the same problem?
For the rest this is the better phone i have had for sports lovers.
After a month of using it the only complain I have is the resistive touchscreen(it responds to pressure not to the skin as a conductor). It often unlocks in my pocket and it's hard to opperate with sweaty or wet hands. I'm not an smartphone expert like the engineers in Samsung but its irritating sometimes. Regardless of that the phone is a brilliant working phone and I drop it several times a week so this is a small complain in the ocean of compliments.
Watherproof? yes... i made a 5 min divefilm in the mediterranian last fall😊 tock only one week before the external speaker worked agan...
Big problem with the latest upgrade i lost the lock on the flaschlight so now it turns on in my pocket all the time and battery goes empty
correction to my previous post
Second thing in my opinion this phone is just waterproof definitely NOT water resistant. Details below.
Two more things.
First thing there is some sort of WRAPPING FILM film between digitizer and lcd and in my case this wrapping film start to live it own life under the digitizer after just couple weeks. I mean this wrapping film stop being stable under the digitizer and there is no way to do anything with that until you remove digitizer. What you have to know too is that the only thing that keep this digitizer on this phone is some small amount of glue so good luck with that :)
Second thing in my opinion this phone is just waterproof definitely water resistant. Read my previous post.
DON'T BE STUPID, THIS PHONE IS TOTAL CRAP. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON FIXING THIS PHONE TOO, BUY BETTER PHONE.
LeadFree, 13 Feb 2016Why that is better from Xcover 2? Is NOT! I have used X2 since it arrive on the market and aft... moreWow, there is a way to root XCover2 so that I can move apps to SD??
Care to elaborate?
This phone is a peace of shit. Don't waste your money.
If you want to see water inside your phone after just 3 weeks of using that is right choice for you.
I dropped my phone only once but since that day my phone stopped being water resistant. Looks like water goes somehow into the phone since that day.
Another thing you should know about this peace of shit is and i heard that from couple people is that every time you drop it then back cover will not fit anymore unless you use your fingers to put it back in right position. Sometimes it hard to notice so be careful. Anyway if you drop your your phone accidentally into standing water (rainwater) you can simply put the samsung ip67 when sun don't shine.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
never ever samsung!
more or less works only camera and calculator.
Donnt waste Your money on it!!!

"did anyone upgrade to lollipop?
this morning I saw the upgrade available.
what is your opinion? does int worth it to install?"
It was sure worth it for me. My GPS module wasn't' localizing my phone in KitKat and therefore I could not use Google Maps. It works in Lollipop!
I like the new notifications better than the previous ones, as they offer more info on the lock screen.
Also, the phone seems ever so slightly more fluid, although it wasn't slow in KitKat either. It is my second phone and therefore it has less than 10 apps installed. I suppose that's why it moves quite well.
