Okay at first, but aged very poorly.
on 26 October 2013
Edit: I have now had this phone for over a year, and it has not aged well. I cannot use basic apps like Snapchat and Timehop, and Facebook constantly freezes. The phone restarts itself frequently, sends and receives texts sometimes days later, and the storage is so tiny that I can't even open my photo gallery, despite having a 16gb SD card. At this point, there are other phones in a similar price range that will do the job immeasurably better. I can no longer recommend this phone. I plan to replace it as soon as I am able.
I'm enjoying my Ace 2 so far. I did extensive research before purchasing, and I believe I made a good decision. Android Jelly Bean runs smoothly on it, it handles my apps well, and the screen is an improvement over my Galaxy Rush. It's big enough to see everything clearly, but not big enough to be awkward for my small hands. It's the only Galaxy smartphone with decent specs for a reasonable price that I could find SIM free. The problems I've had have been minor. The phone restarts on its own occasionally, and I don't think the actual internal storage is as advertised, as there is quite a bit of bloatware. As I said though, I recommend it overall. If you want a solid-performing smartphone, but don't want to pay the exorbitant cost of one of the higher-end models, I'd go for this one. As far as the seller goes: It was delivered quickly, packed securely, and the price was the best I could find on Amazon. Thank you!
