    So its pretty new to you right? Did your friend uninstall all apps and data before giving it to you? I'd suggest factory resetting it.

    I suggest reading, reading and more reading. The phones speed is slow due to Samsungs I/O setup for the memory. I dont know all the details but this is where custom roms and certain files come in handy. I ran two programs to rewrite how the phone utilizes its memory. It is super fast now.
