Summary: I'm from Venezuela and this phone really suited their needs as it lasted. Sadly it was stolen on a journey. Terrible way to lose a phone like this, but you can be shure it's a really good phone and I can totally recommend it, specially with a good cooked custom ROM like Slim Kat.
Summary: very good phone for a person on a budget. Nice performance with the first Android, but once you upgrade to 4.0 the phone can be slow sometimes (more than you would like). Is a good phone for the price, also resistant and with good connectivity.
Summary: This is my first Android and it is an excellent phone. Had the luck that it came with Andriod 4.1.2 (Jellybean). Phone was easy to setup (with google account). Unlocked phone just slide your GSM chip and the phone is ready to go. This phone is more in the mid range smartphones due to the new phone out there, but this phone can handle all apps like for office files, pdf, emails all google apps.
Excerpt: Hey I from Srilnaka. I'm using this galaxy s advance for less than 6 -7 months. but it never gives any trouble to me. also several time I dropped this phone from higher places but it never damaged. it's worth to that money I paid for it. any it would be better if we can upgrade it to ICS or higher version of Android OS.
