So I've bought a new phone recently, not very recently, actually I bought it on the first of January this year. I've been putting off writing about this because I've been lazy and have been spending most of my free time playing games with my phone. Btw I forgot to mention earlier that it is a Samsung galaxy S advance
. It's quite nice, looks decent, compact and performs pretty well. The only drawback is that it's still runs Gingerbread when the rest of the world has moved to ice cream sandwich and are getting jelly bean.
There were rumours floating around that the phone would receive software update to jelly bean in January but my phone does not show any such notifications yet. I've read people rooting and installing updates manually but I've decided not to go down that route considering what happened
with my last phone.Although I haven't given up hope yet that my phone would someday (in the near future) be updated to jelly bean and I can play around with face unlock, Google Now and all the other cool features.
Although it's still on Gingerbread it has a 1gz dual core processor so it feels very snappy in comparison with my previous phone LG Optimus One. Also it has 768mb ram, it would have been better with 1GB ram but it can handle the apps I use so nothing to worry about for now. The camera is 5 MP and has flash and is pretty nice.
Overall it's a nice phone and will be cool once it updates to jelly bean, so I'll wait patiently for the update and not root it too soon: wait:.
