Have it for a year and works nice. And for better battery performance you can reset phone to factory and dont install battery saver and usless apps.
Good phone, but with two drawbacks:
- It has an old version of Android (4.4.2), although it is released only 2 years ago. I had expected an update to at least Android 5.1.
- the screen is not bright enough to use it outside in the sun. That was possible in the past with my simple Nolkia phone. As you don't have physical buttons, it is difficult sometimes to accept a phone call, whenm outside.
about the previous post, for the use of OTG on this model without external power.
here is the link of the dev that made it possible
lately i came across a very useful info about using OTG (On The Go) foncion on the SGS NEO+
that allow us to use or connect any flash drive, mouse, gamepad or keyboard to our mobile without having the need to use a Y Cable or a power bank :D
it's a very simple small app (apk file) that allow u to activate/deactivate the OTG support on the smart-phone
I tested it my self, and it worked like a charm with everything even a computer mouse.
it was posted on the xda forum on the Internet.
I'll Provide The link of the page later.

One of the best S Series being launch by Samsung in the market. smooth in all kinds of games and no hang or lag even in multiple apps open.
I have a problem with the battery too
The screen starts flickering then it turns off at some percentage between 39% to 42%
I replaced the battery twice
And tried that "quick start" calibration method but no result
I think it comes from the power ic
