I've had this phone for over a year now. When people say "it's slow", they are exactly right. Using this phone is painful and I'm at the point now where the battery is dead after half a day, even when sitting idle the battery dies within hours. I expected more from Samsung

For it's price It's a really good phone.... for the first three months.
It lags all the time, and suddenly the phone is a brick and I have to take the battery off and put it back to make it work again. It takes a very long time to boot the phone, and after that it works for ten minutes.
The RAM-usage is always somewhere between 450-630/645Mb, so using an app is a pain in your arse because it takes a lifetime to open an app, and when the app has finally opened, the phone lags(surprise).
After a while the battery lasts for 10 hours max.
If you desperately need a smartphone, consider spending your money on something useful instead of this piece of sh*t.
I've been struggling with it for a year because I don't have any extra money to spend on a new phone.
Works perfectly as an mp3-player.

This is the worst phone I've ever, ever, EVER had. It lags incredibly much - Just read other reviews on this. Please don't buy it, saving up some more money is 1000% worth it if you'll be able to purchase another phone.
It's the slowest phone ever. When someone calls, the first time you won't be able to pick it up because the phone lags. Sometimes you can't even call because it freezes and you have to remove the battery and reinsert it.
Everytime it lags your best best is to restart it, but still, in 10 minutes it's back to being awful.
Can't even think about playing a game in this phone, terrible sensitivity and touch lag. Maps is super slow, very frustrating when you want to locate yourself and enter an address.
Please don't buy this phone, I'm seriously going to detonate it when I buy a new one.

Terrible performance and bugged WiFi

This phone is a very slow phone for making use for any call. I could not see log & key pad at the same screen to make immediate call after seeing log.

This is absolutely the worst phone I have ever owned. It is too slow, and it freezes too much. If I want to make a simple phone call it will take at least 1 minute to load. I just really hate it

Horribly slow. It needs task killer to function normally, even then too slow.

Very disappointed with this phone. A simple procedure like changing wallpaper for lock screen simply doesn't work instead adds photo to my gallery. I spent hours trying but fail each time not user friendly, seems to me Samsung has a total reject one. Noone on customer help centre can help out, like parrots they guide you to the manual steps which we already tried. I think I will dump this phone.

Good looking phone but that's about it, unfortunately. It's soooo slow, really slow. Go for the Duos, at least you get the double sim because there's not much difference in the speed at the end of the day.

It's a good phone but sometimes works slowly when opening an app sometimes forces us to close a programme still ok and also good price speaker quality was too slow. I cannot install to much apps.
