Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Good looking, stylish, and well built
  • Flagship-level, premium build quality
  • Very good display, with pleasing colors
  • Great battery life
  • Software makes good user of the screen real estate with split-screen multitasking
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Good camera
  • Fast fingerprint reader
  • Great multimedia app package with advanced music player, FM radio too
  • Good audio quality
  • Good battery life
  • Solid build
  • Well designed - the metal body definitely gives this phone an edge over others in the same price range, and along with the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass spread across the front, gives 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]
  • Loudspeaker is on the quite side
  • Performance is underwhelming and inconsistent at times
  • Especially poor for gaming, given its price range - GPU performance is well below par
  • 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
