Experiment , 10 Jun 2020It could be the battery 🔋 it could be worn out and needs to be replaced...easaier to find 1500mAH ones than this
I bought this phone in 2013. The biggest weakness is the 1Gb ram. The space was just too little for any number of apps. This was my worst Samsung ever. I didn't get value for money.

Any specific tweaks you recommend? Is it possible to expand RAM?
PROS: - indestructible, I'm a blacksmith and this has been my phone for about two years and it has been through everything you can imagine and more, including fire, water, grease, being stomped by cars more than once, welding sparks, falling from big hights, everything. There's no breaking this phone.
- All the hardware buttons are comfortable and as durable as the rest of the phone.
- Pretty reliable and easy to use even with greasy or wet fingers.
- The main camera is really good for a 5mp one, although kind of slow.
- The battery is good for normal use and can be replaced, although I'm still using the original one.
CONS: - the internal memory is a real problem, installing the basic apps is imposible if not rooted. Rooting is easy and linking or moving apps to your SD "fixes" most issues although I've had a few problems with missing linked apps.
- The cover for the USB connection at the bottom gets broken and lost kind of easily, I've changed it a couple of times in the past two years and I just gave up, it's still resists everything without it, even liquids.
- Slowest boot ever.
I use this phone about 2 years , and only negative side is the low memory size,after uninstalling all other apps,there are still too low memory for needed apps,and i don't mean any games or stuff. But otherwise no serious errors or something like that. Good battery ,and still working after every day in industrial dusty atmosphere.

I am not at all savvy but would appreciate the help.
The negative comments are obviously by people that lack experience and knowledge when it comes to android opertingsystem and IT. If you knew how to optimize this device properly (i got one today in 2017 for free in perfect condition) I rooted it, tweaked it a bit a and it works flawlessly even now in 2017. I recommend doing research and learn something, it's not hard at all. This device as I made it right now can even be used daily today. Yes, it's that fast, smooth and has extra ram+storage.
This was the worst phone I ever had and the reason I will never trust s Samsung agsin. useless.
Poor build quality - not water resistant after 1 month.
I have inserted a 16 GB external SD card but i could change the setting of camera to memory
card. It automatically changes into "device memory". I cannot capture more photos and video due to storage problem. Please suggest me something to fix this problem so that i can change my setting of camera permanently to "memory card".
This phone is absolutly undestructive (if you are trying to destruct it in normal ways :D )
I can throw it about 7meters high then it fall on asphalt and nothing happen to it.
Performence is nothing special, rather pretty slow.. but it worth this undescrutibility. love it.

Anthea, 24 Aug 2016I've been having the exact same problem..!! It keeps on telling me "NOT REGISTERED ON NETWORK"... moreI had the same issue plus a battery disconnected error from time to time, and solved it by cleaning the battery contacts (changing the battery may also work if that fails) It is somehow related to battery contacts not touching the ones on the phone properly. Also it seems to be a common isssue for samsung phones.
l have just bought it still studying it after a while l will give feedback but now enjoying it more than other phones l have used.
george, 12 Jul 2016such a great phone indeed realy enjoying this device , I just don't know how to set it up so i... moreSorry, you can't. Unless you are prepared to spend a lot of time, take some risks and nullify your warrantee.
I got past the small size by flashing a pre-rooted rom and partitioning my SD card. But then I was 'surprised' that there's no gyroscope either! Cmon, I was gonna use that!
If you get past the small storage and the reflective screen in the sunlight, and the lack of some other features in the specifications, it's a pretty good phone and it'll last a long long time for you.
