Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Premium build, and classy design
  • Compact in-the-hand feel, easy to use with one hand
  • Touch ID fingerprint scanner provides a useful, convenient way to unlock the phone
  • Beautiful display with incredibly accurate colors, excellent brightness output, and great viewing angles
  • iOS 7 is a nice evolution from the previous version, and is as simple, and intuitive as ever
  • Snappy, fluid performance
  • Future proof power package
  • Great on-screen keyboard
  • Excellent web browser
  • Excellent camera with very good low-light performance as well
  • Excellent call quality
  • Bundled iWork app suite
  • Solid build
  • Well designed - the metal body and the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass spread across the front, give it a premium feel
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner is generally quick and easy to use
  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games
  • Comes with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top of Android, which is now lighter than before, and works well
  • Useful new features include S Power Planning (battery management) and S Secure (privacy), apart from Ultra-data saving mode and S bike mode
  • Good all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including heavy games, and multi-tasking
  • Decent rear and front cameras under daylight conditions - most of the shots taken by the smartphone have decent colours and are crisp - and the handset is able to lock focus quickly
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Small screen size compared to other flagship phones, means that the video/photo viewing experience is not quite as immersive
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
