                I expected much more from Samsung when I bought this phone but here r the reasons why im disappointed:
                1-bad battery life(need to charge at least once during the day with normal use)
                2-no light sensor for auto brightness control
                3-no notification led light
                4-volume buttons and lock button bad positions
                5-Bad screen visibility under sunlight

                Best sized device:screen phone ever built. but having the above points I do not recommend buying this device. Samsung could hace made better sales with this device.......

                          AnonD-69772, 13 Feb 2013Hi.. it has no move to sd function. . What if the internal ... moreHi.

                          All apps are automatically saved on the internal memory.

                          As far as I know, mostly, if not, all Jelly Bean phones do not allow transfer to SD card function.

                          You can have your phone rooted (but I think it's not very conventional. ) or download a program to your PC that allows the transfer of apps to the SD card.

                          I hope this helps.

                                  I have had this phone for about 2 months now and an almost completely happy with it. 1 question though, was it not supposed to have some sort of smart "screen rotation" that can tell whether you're viewing content lying by your side or from an upright position? If so, how does 1 activate it?

                                        here in Indonesia, Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III Mini price is only US$10 higher than Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance.

                                        it's hard to choose between those two phones.
                                        Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini has slightly better specs & software, but lack of ambient light sensor, and the design is not my taste.
                                        Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance has better design with curved screen (i know that design is personal preferences, but still...), and so on.

                                        i hope Samsung will lower the price of Galaxy S Advance a little further, so i can finally make my decision...
