The Galaxy S2 Plus could be the ideal smartphone for me (Small phone and good camera. All "better" smartphones are too huge for me). The only disadvantage for me: Only about 4 GB RAM available.


I never had a smartphone with so little memory and so I have no experience with external sd-cards: Is ist possible to store all offline notebooks from Evernote to an external sd-card or does this not work? In the forum I have seen that it depends on the manufacturer. Any exerience with this smartphone?

My Galaxy S2 (not plus) is presumably similar,  and I've had a long battle with SD cards.  It looks like all mobile phones have a portion of their base storage allocated for system use,  and the rest is called (confusingly) USB or SD memory.  The external storage added with an actual SD card sits as a sub-folder in the USB memory folder.  All the apps I use - including the ones designed to move other apps into the SD folder - refer to "move to SD card" and really mean the main folder in on-board memory,  not the physical card.  I have a 16GB phone,  plus a 16GB card,  and having made a valiant attempt to make as much space as possible for my offline database,  I have 99% usage on my internal storage (1.97 of 2GB used),  60% of my "SD" storage (4.2 of 11.5GB) and naf all of my real SD card - 1GB used out of 15+! - and that's for random music and video and the odd backup.


I'm told there are ways around this if you root your phone.  Not prepared to do that - seems like there's additional tech maintenance involved which I really don't need at the moment. 


I'm hoping that there are Fandroids hiding out within the Herd who are also having these problems,  and will find a way to unlock my extra GBs of capacity sometime soon!


Sorry: should have said that

1) I really like the phone and wouldn't change it - except maybe for an S4.. and

2) I now use smaller notebooks - subsets of my default book - for stuff I need offline.
