Nope was stripped of all non essential apps and was freezing. The hardware just wore out.Well Immoral you will like this ....had no problems running the Uber or Ola app on an old Samsung Galaxy S4...
But it was rooted and got rid of all the bloat ware and made a few other tweaks...so next upgrade will be twin fully rooted Samsung S5's lol
Many sluggisg phones are just bogged down with unnecessary background processes and can be blazing fast with a little TLC
Bought it 2nd so the guy before me used it pretty thoroughly and with Ola running on it for 9 months it was just rooted.
Before that had my own purchased S5 from 2013 or when it was first released. After a year of Uber it was pretty rooted as well.
Which led me to getting an S9 Note which pretty much just idles for rideshare apps and after the last S5 rooted itself got an S8 note.
Both flagship models with the bells and whistles S9 Note been 512gb with 8gb ram and S8 Note been 256gb with 6gb ram and both octo cores.
You just want to spend a little bit more $$$ on something second hand with a little bit more grunt or you be like me replacing it 6-9 months down the road. The cost of replacing it is going to exceed what you think you saved as you are now buying twice if not three times. When you could of just purchased once and it lasting forever.
My pick for the notes are that they are commercial grade and made phones. Designed to be Heavy Duty and that exactly what these rideshare apps do to phone hardware is constantly demand resources and that just chips away at it bit by bit until the phone is rooted. You know the phone is rooted when it can't run for 2 hours without the rideshare app freezing and nothing you can do on it rinse and repeat. That money lost since you got an essential equipment that no longer functioning. Just like you need a vehicle to drive you need a phone that works.
