Hi everyone,

I need to buy a phone for someone and i found this one. The budget is around 175,- and i can get this one new for 160,-. Just a couple of questions.
- Would you recommend it?
- How large is the data partition for installing apps?
- I read samsung already stopped supporting the phone?
Keep in mind that the phone will not be rooted and staying with stock firmware!

Thanks in advance

Nope, don't buy if you can't root. Simple as that. It's damn slow and laggy.
Giving this as a gift will make you the enemy of them :P
It's running 4.1.2 and despite high price is below average.
I'll recommend Xperia L/M for music quality and performance or Moto G.
Not worth the price of course.

I recommend buying the Galaxy Core, it's a nice phone, Android 4.1 2:04, 8gb for applications Also the screen is large and has a great processor
