Exclamation [Q] Is Gingerbread still relevant?

This phone is no longer mine. It is my mother's now.
I'm asking a very serious question : Is Gingerbread still relevant???
From my experience, it was the best performing with the best battery life Android version of this device. I want to reflash Gingerbread on it because my mother isn't going to do any experiments.
Its battery got swollen two times. Was it because I was using a custom ROM and kernel or because I used another charger with it: the Samsung Ch@t 322 one, that has a lower voltage and amperage.
So, should I reflash Gingerbread? Are apps still compatible with it? Stock JB is a pain to use, so it isn't an option.

My opinion, as a man who loves the parents.

Yeup .. If you want an ease, in the use of android for your parents. Use GB only. Yes, indeed, if we look at in terms of features, it arguably been left behind. But it is not something that is necessary for your parents, I think. The important thing is the main function of the device itself, phone calls, and sms.

Ok. Thank you.
And, by the way, my mom is not an elder. She's 36.

Yeah, I mean, for your Mom. Even though you are only 10 years of age is different from your mother, she still your parents. Right?
