IceQueen, 09 Feb 2017Hey, I have gone back to my s2 and running minimal apps.. I don't even have facebook on it and... moreUse custom ROMs.
I have Samsung Core and the ROM that I have installed has about 50% better benchmark results. Some have reached even 80-90% improvements.
Also, you can backup data and delete the phone. It will improve the performance.
So the rear facing camera is something you'd expect from younger phones such as the iPhone 6s so good but secondary not so much and battery could be bigger but overall good. 4.5 Stars
Hey, I have gone back to my s2 and running minimal apps.. I don't even have facebook on it and its lagging quite a bit, any advice?
yep! it is good, but why i cant install snapchat and instagram and some of my apps is outdated? do i really need to updgrade my device? but how?
Yep, had mine since it first came out and it's still going strong (pico GApps and minimal apps). It's had various roms but Cyanogen (RIP) has been its saving grace. So far I've only had two smartphones, the HTC Hero, then this S2. Not sure what I'll get when(if) the S2 dies...
Wow,i like this phone so much,it will be the same as buying my computer in 2011. it will be soooooooooooo good
I have 3 of them, I like them a lot... but one suddenly died after the battery went down to 0. The battery is ok but it wont start more....apart from that I love these phones
One of the best phones I ever purchased. It swam twice, fell a couple of time and still works like a boss.
Indeed one of the best Samsung phones. Bought it in 2011, no cracks or anything even after some brutal crashes. Did change the OS multiple times as well as the battery once, but it just works like a work horse. Even today it's pretty snappy, though some apps do that a while to load, such as messanger, maps.me etc.
One of the best phones from Samsung. Great phone. Purchased this phone on Aug 2nd, 2011. Using till date, without any issues. Haven't changed the battery as well till now. Of course, the battery drains due to a low power(1650MAH) and also due to the high end games.
Been using this phone since July 2011.Great phone, still has the original battery,but it's dying out.
Im using this phone from 2012 , still (2017) I can say confidently that this phone is very much special for users. Tnx samsung for making this beautiful phone
adilcom50, 13 Nov 2016very good cell phone but it is to brittle body , high liability to be broken down with minimal... moreEh? This phone is still alive and kicking without cracks and scratches on screen, even though it fell out of my pocket when riding a moto
This is my first Android phone and I'm still using it to this day (since June 2011). Phone becomes a bit slow when using some apps as they are more resource hungry. Battery life is not as top notch as the phones of today. I'm using CM13 on this thing and I can confidently say I can still use it as my daily driver. Thank you Samsung for one heck of a phone xD
Hi. I've used this phone for the last 2 years. Good phone for pictures, calls and internet (when you're not in a hurry). When i turn on the data, the s2 freezes for about a min until it gets his updates, but my other s3 neo keeps rollling. When I plus in the charger, the s2 responds very slow and freezes, but the s3 neo works ok. The silver border gets wiped out really easy and looks ugly if you don't use a cover. The s2 is really thin for its age (was a great phone when was released, better than iphone 4 I think) but the display is a bit smalI. I would not recommend this phone in 2017 more than a backup phone for calls and short social media checks.
