2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The Touchwiz UI lets the phone down - it has a lot of bugs, and random instabilities, that tend to dampen the Android experience
  • Iffy fingerprint sensor
  • Underwhelming speed/performance in this price range
  • No notification LED
  • 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
