I just updated this S2 to Android 8.0 oreo worldwide edition. It added a lot of new functions including face ID which works amazing. It is like a new phone now! For those who interested can go download and update it yourself but it is a taiwanese website and you might need google translate if u can't read chinese.
instruction (remember, need to update to version 1.35F first） = 1.connect via usb as mtp mode. 2. copy the downloaded rom on to your root. 3. disconnect the usb. 4. dial *#*#874#*#* and follow instruction. (reminder：there are risks for flashing your rom, I will not take any responsible if your device is bricked or failed. It's on your own risk!)
Bought this on jd.com for 150$. For that price its a steal. The smallest 5.5" you can buy, has plenty of power for the average user, generous ram 4gb and memory 64. The screen is great, battery life is quite good, it has NFC, camera is ok also, so for this price - you can't really go wrong. Just flash tw firmware with gapps and you're good 2 go. In Europe this thing is very rare, so if you want 2 go exclusive, this is the one 2 get:)))

This is a nice phone with a very good camera. But the recording audio in videos are ridiculously bad, worst thing i heard in a phone.

No thank you.this was made before the iphone X

Absolutely good quality phone with good price. I have used it for more than 2 months. the only flaw is the power key not very well-assembled.

But chinese version can't install google services apps. So need to flash the firmware to taiwanese version and everything works fine!

I just brought this phone and started setting it up yesterday. I have a problem with the front facing camera. Everytime I try to use the front facing camera it will go back to the back camera.
Is anyone else having this issue?
Can you please GSMarena put at specifications processor frequency and ram at each phone and if possible the rfresh rate of the display

The 4+64GB version is only RMB1699 (sometimes RMB1499) in Chinese local online store, for sure the best buy in similar price range. The only complain is the speaker sucks, both in quality and loudness. Battery life is amazing, no problem for whole day (12 hours continuous facebook and whatsapp)!

The front and the bac... moreWho cares, it's functional. It's dead space anyway better be used by something useful.
Muuuch preferable from simply having a bezel on top (which IMO is even uglier)
The only way to make it both pretty and functional is to have the selfie cam underscreen, that way when the (oled) screen dims on top it can be used for selfies, when it doesn't (i.e. watchin a video, using your phone; you can't be spied on)...
