Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Top-notch build quality, and good looking design
  • Good display with accurate color reproduction, and good legibility even under sunlight
  • Good software package with Samsung's Touchwiz UI
  • Great multimedia app package with an advanced music player, and FM radio too
  • Decent front and back cameras with good colors and contrast levels (although detail could have been better)
  • Decent battery life
  • Good audio quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The dated Snapdragon 410 chipset means that although the phone performs decent in daily tasks, it falls quite a bit short of phones with more modern chipsets in this price range
  • Average loudspeaker
  • No fingerprint sensor
