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: 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.
Summary: I was looking for a mid price android device for my first smartphone and it has not let me down. It is pretty powerful. I still haven't fully tested it yet. It has a great antenna, I can talk and get signal where I couldn't with my previous phone, and it is pretty quick when loading and using applications.
Summary: This cellphone is all I was looking for, a good smart phone with accesible price, fast, with a big screen, good resolution, good internal memory but capable to use MicroSD card. I'm using it in Venezuela and works great since day 1. It look strong but is light and fine, it's not as big as another samsungs, that is important to me because I have small hands and didn't want a phone that looked like a small tablet when I'm using it.
