Mine is 7 yrs old now, and the original battery still stores enough juice for 24+ hrs.
Running LineageOS 14.1 (without Google Apps, though), which gets weekly updates.
This in turn means continued up-to-date security fixes based on Android 7.1.2. Yay! \o/
The hardware proved to be very sturdy and easy to maintain (e.g. internal cleanup).
i installed cm14.1 and i lost imei, imei sv and baseband vesion. Worst phone ever
I just held this phone (the international i9100) in person and oh my god it is really NICE!!! I definitely prefer the feel of this than the Galaxy S3. I (in my opinion) even think it's a better feel in the hand than the iPhone SE!
I know I might sound like someone from 2011 but no I am from 2018 and being absolutely serious about everything I just said. This phone (in terms of the feel in hand) is my absolute FAVOURITE!!!
Big Danny K, 04 May 2018The first phone I bought with my own money + my first smartphoneSame here haha, I installed a custom ROM running Lineage OS 15.1 (8.1 Oreo) and it's running pretty good. I'm impressed how it's still holding up well to this day.
Still one of the best designed Android phones to this day. Good job, Samsung.

Type *#9900# on phone keypad and select "Delete dumpstate/logcat" This can build up to phenomenal size but can't be seen. I had same problem about storage and this cured prob
Do you have Internal Space Left, or SD Card Space Left? Apps download to internal space, so you need to have enough space on their free.

Ashish Sukthankar, 08 Feb 2018I have been using this mobile since November 2011. It's my first android mobile and it's still... moreHa ha yes I still have my S2 with bigger battery 2000mah with extra battery charger.
Its still a fantastic phone. 👍
I have been using this mobile since November 2011. It's my first android mobile and it's still working after 6 years. Never had any problem with the mobile. It's built quality is good. I hoping I can complete few more years of it's usage. Maybe by then I will replace it with a much upgraded mobile phone. Till then I will use my galaxy S2 until it stops working.
Such an awsome smartphone by samsung...
But it finally give up on 2018 almost (6 years used)
#Exellent amoled display and dynamic camera performance ...ony very few phones had it on those days
#fully laminated front glass has always been shining for me
#it was sleek and highly portable device
# no one can argue that this phone had poor performance
In my experiences only iphone 4s ,samsung S2 and moto X 1st gen have crossed 5 years of its life
Todays samsung....like S8 is just cheap....i can see plenty of them on repair shop...and most of them were display and glass broken S8..
### will never forget samsung S2###
