Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Solid build quality
  • Nice, elegant design
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Water-resistant
  • Decent display - images and websites looked fairly crisp and sharp
  • Comes loaded with clean, near stock Android, with almost no bloatware
  • Decent speed/performance - pleasant to use in daily use
  • Decent rear camera - takes pretty good outdoor photos (in mixed light, it takes OK photos, and in low light, it struggles and images tend to have some noise)
  • Decent front camera too - skin tones looked fairly natural in selfies
  • Decent video recording performance - takes serviceable HD videos at 30 fps
  • Nice, loud front-facing speaker
  • Overall reliable hardware and software
  • Very good battery life - easily last for a little more than a day for moderate to heavy usage
  • Removable/replaceable battery
  • One the whole a good option for users looking for an decent device that’s solid, runs well, and has a battery that’ll last all day
  • Well built
  • Nice the attention to detail - the curves are all in the right places and the phone feels extremely comfortable and light when held in the hand
  • Unique Smart Glow feature that offers a different take on a notifications LED
  • The Super AMOLED display is vibrant, has good viewing angles, and decent sunlight legibility
  • Samsung's Touchwiz over Android is one of the better Android UIs
  • Decent camera performance, in well lit conditions
  • Fast shutter speed, with negligible delay between shots
  • Good battery life - one can easily manage a full day of use
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Average sunlight legibility of the display
  • Although performance in daily use is good enough, it tends to lag when playing games and taking panoramic photos
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • No gyroscope
  • Bundled charger has a slow charging speed - taking about 4 hours to full charge
  • Display lacks an ambient light sensor so it won't adjust brightness levels on its own
  • Performance is smooth in daily use, but is a definite step behind the phone's top peers in this price bracket
  • Poor low light performance of the camera
  • 8 GB of internal storage will be a limiting factor if you install a lot of apps/games
