For those who are about to update your Samsung Galaxy S Advance to android 4.1.2 (jelly bean) , i made this review to guide you all to make a good decision wether to update your phone to jelly bean or not.
Jelly bean (4.1.2)
Pros : -Very beautiful UI (User Interface)
-Have camera zoom function 4.0x
-More RAM available (625MB)
-Have some new features like popup video
-Easy to root your phone
-Have a lot of custom ROM
-Can swap memory (Internal memory become external and external memory become internal [root only]
-Support most apps from google playstore eg. google chrome
Cons : - Sometimes you will face lagging
- Battery drain like hell !
- Even though you got bigger RAM 625MB, the RAM keep using the memory. You will always got 500 MB > / 625 MB in task manager. Multitasking is such a failure on jelly bean
- No flash support
- No 1080p video playback support (BS player 1080p no longet support)
- Slow respond time. If you want to open an app like messaging, contacts, internet, whatsapp or etc, loading time is too long up to 5 seconds. Too long delay time.
- SUCKKKKSSS !!!
Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
Pros : - Have flash support
- Can play 1080p video via BS Player
- Fast respond time
- Very good in multitasking ( does not consume too much RAM )
- Battery saving :)
- Fells so stable this phone on gingerbread
Cons : - Does not have zoom function
- Outdated UI
- Does not have popup video
- Hard to root
- Less custom ROM
- Cannot swap memory
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE !!!!
It's really a very bad phone...I think it has no real RAM Momory and only has a swap on the ROM.
It's really annoying especially for the most important function it has to do: to be a Phone.
If I want to call someone while in another application, e.g. in Internet Explorer, it will take more than 16 seconds to initiate the call (+6 seconds to make the connection)because of it's long lag.
If you take a picture and what to see it, it will take like 13-15 seconds to display the picture.
This happens even though I have updated it to Android 4.1.2.
I was happy when I bought the phone but now I am realllllly disappointed.

I am using this Phone from last 1 year and I will provide the exact info about this phone. Firstly, the camera quality of this phone is fantastic but unfortunately it doesnt have a zoom. If you want to click a picture of anyone, you have to go closer to them until you hear the sound of there breath and then you can click the picture. Secondly, The battery backup of this phone is very shitty. The battery of my phone has swollen after 6months only and then it started getting switch off automatically after every 25min. If you are using navigator on your phone and the phn gets switched off then there will be high chance for you to get lost on tours and trips. This phone is not worth.
