Russian JB may be laggy but GB works fine. I completed NFS most wanted on my mobile.
I am playing GTA vice city, Asphalt 7 and Wild blood now.Never experienced any lags. HD videos doesnt freeze at all(i.e HD 720p. It doesnt support 1080p)
And network problems, I never experienced them but I believe some SGSA suffer from it.
I think u got a defective SGSA
Tarik, 20 Feb 2013Hi,
Impatient to wait for my region update I've updated my phone via ODIN to JB russien fra... moreI too have flashed the same through Odin, the baseband version is XXLQ4, .....I appreciate is I can control the back ground processes, the Nenamark benhcmark proved to be a better with 39.1 FPS and also there has been an increase in the AntuTu benchmark score.
Changing the aspect ratio in MX Player is accurate as compared to GB, No lags and drop in framerate, while playing Temple Run, but the over all smoothness is gone down a bit..lets wait for future updates.
Impatient to wait for my region update I've updated my phone via ODIN to JB russien frameware yesterday (the latest one from January).
I was scared at first: If anything goes wrong. But every thing worked just fine for me, the update via ODIN toks me just 10 min :)
- I have a phone locked to vodaphone carier (Spain). A professional unlocked it for me on GB - And guess what ? the phone still unlocked after the update :)
- The JB OS seems very stable, no lags or whatever.
[deleted post]Yeah, for like 365 days more to go, lol
U should not trust link like fb fan page, even site like samsung ukraine can't tell us the truth
Does it support Subway surfers game as i heard that there is bug in galaxy grand. So, checking whether it's also having the same issue.
Kiran, 20 Feb 2013Guys, does the Indian version have Gorilla Glass in it? I thought it had, but today I noticed ... moreNo Gorilla Glass No NFC for India atleast. Its a waste phone. Performance is like a 600 Mhz single core phone. Dont buy! Ive already wasted my money. Im selling this and gonna buy some other device within a months time.

This phone keeps lagging. I really doubt if its really dual core. HD games lag and HD videos freeze the phone. My 20k waste!
Only good thing about this phone is the display is amazing its the best display possible. But the lags will irritate you. Imagine your phone going black again n again even when it is factory reseted!
And yes this is a known issue, the network antenna is extremely poor. You will lose network and you sometimes have to restart to gain the network. If not then it takes 5 minutes to regain. This happens every few minutes. Overall a shit device and samsung is lazy in updates. It din even gave me a replacement for the known antenna issue and spoilt usb.
I suggest u go for some other brand with atleast 1.2 ghz dual core and 1 gb ram and a good gpu.
For eg : Sony Xperia, Nokia Lumia 820,920 etc.
If your fine with an indian brand then go for Micromax A116 Canvas HD. Its a quad core phone at 14k and my friend has it it works pretty well. HD games n videos work flawless and the performance has no complains. Only problem is u never know the quality of these brands!
Spend more ;)
i am planning to buy this smartphone. Guys plz suggest me i should buy it or not, becoz um a heavy gammer, is this phone able to play any hd game without any lag or not?
Guys, does the Indian version have Gorilla Glass in it? I thought it had, but today I noticed two small scratches in bright sunlight. I could feel the scratches when I place my finger near it.
everybody is talking this and that bla bla bla. most of us know that the update has been released but still some people asking when and when. read through this forum carefully and you'll get what you're lookin for
Guys, stop blaming Samsung. Just for one moment think positive.
May be Samsung is working on the update to avoid bugs.
If Sony & other companies got better service nd provide better updates, then who asked u to buy Samsung!! So, just be patient.
Nd even if you do status updates like I am angry, I am frustrated...etc., on this forum like facebook, it is of no use.
I am not a fan of Samsung. I am also frustrated with the update. But all i wanna say is make this forum useful
