Editor's Note [Positives]
  • 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
  • Excellent build quality
  • Beautiful, premium, stunning design with a curved backing - this phone is a looker
  • Rounded rear makes it comfortable to hold
  • Compact and light-weight - fits snugly in your pocket
  • Excellent display with good brightness levels, high contrast, and outdoor readability
  • MIUI is one of the better, and neater Android UIs around and has useful customization options
  • Excellent performance with top-of-the-line hardware, that stands up against the very best, including the Galaxy S7 which is at a much higher price point
  • Very good camera performance with instant focus, fast shutter speed, better than expected low-light performance, plenty of resolved detail, high dynamic range, and excellent colors and contrast
  • Very good battery life, with fast charging support
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Good fingerprint scanner
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • 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)
  • Video recording quality is underwhelming
