    Same here,my nokia X2-01 has been working without any problem for almost four years now.My experience with Samsung has been even worse.I bought a Samsung Galaxy ace plus around two years ago for 16k.At the time of buying I was promised that the phone would be upgraded to jelly bean and the same is still written on GSM Arena but no official update for the Galaxy ace plus has come till today.Instead Samsung stopped support for the phone and never gave any jelly bean update citing low hardware specs.Now Samsung has released a new phone called Samsung Galaxy fame with same specs like Samsung glaxy ace plus but with jelly bean and only a price of 9k.In order to make the phone(Samsung Galaxy ace plus) slim Samsung had a design flaw because of which the camera buldges out and when kept on the table the entire phones rests on the camera.The camera isnt scratch proof so as time passed several scratches came on the camera which made it unusable.Finally I simply through that sick phone.

    Samsung has been providing worst specifications for the price and not to forget the cheap design and the cheap internals. This is same thing with a different name. My first phone was a Samsung and within a month it was having issues and the service centre took 3 months to solve the problem. Second Phone was too Samsung which stopped working after a period of 6 months. Third Phone was Samsung too, once it got a problem, the service centre took one day for just a simple software update and then after a week, the phone stopped working. Fourth time, I went for Micromax and there was a software update available for the phone, the service centre took just 1 hour to update the software. Samsung phones have cheap quality hardware and they are selling them at premium prices. My Nokia phone is working without a problem since 7 years.

    Not even HD display. Better go for Nexus 7 2012 under 10K.

    Whats the cost?
    Nly dual core limits someone to take it
    But it all depends on the cost
