    NO APPS SUPPORT. I HAD FREQUENT RESTART PROBLEMS WHEN TYPING MESSAGES. Got my phone serviced by Samsung for six times, also, last time, got everything inside phone replaced, but still I have that problem..

    Should somebody buy this phone just because it has 3G in it????
    OK. I agree it has video call with front camera…

    BUT THE FACT IS THAT WE HAVE BETTER OPTIONS FOR SAME PRICE.
    I got fucked up by this phone.
