Samsung Galaxy S II SGH-S959G Manual: The Good and The Bad
Date Published: 04/29/2013
Previously, I ranked this User Manual for Samsung Galaxy S II SCH-S959G with five stars rating, but now I realize that there is one important thing that seems to be missed in the Manual: Samsung didn't include the Quick Start Guide of the phone. The QSG is somehow quite important due to the full User Manual of this SGS2 SGH-S9595 for Net10 and Straight Talk has quite huge in its size, about 11MB. The QSG with 1-2MB file size would be good. Besides of that, the Manual is excellence
4.5 / 5 stars
