2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium glass-metal design
  • With small bezel size (just 2.7mm) the overall size is kept relatively manageable for such a large screen device
  • The flattened mid section too helps in making it easy to hold
  • Samsung's expertise in making good AMOLED screen shines through in the A9 Pro as well - although the resolution is relatively low at 1080p, the screen looks sharp, offers superb contrast, viewing angles and brightness
  • If you find the colours not to your liking, you can also switch modes from the display settings (adaptive/cinema photo/basic modes)
  • Good overall speed/performance, powered by the Snapdragon 652 processor, paired with 4GB RAM - offers the same class of performance as previous generation flagships - but falls behind the current Snapdragon 820 phones like Le Max 2 and Mi5 which are available in even lower price brackets
  • The 16MP primary camera offers good quality results and has optical image stabilization - although it is easily outclassed by the top camera phones in this price range like the OnePlus 3
  • The battery is massive at 5, 000mAh and combined with the efficient Snapdragon 652, delivers two full days of battery life
  • Fast charging support (30 minutes of charging will give you about a 30 per cent charge)
  • On the whole, if you want a really large screen smartphone from one of the top brands, A9 Pro is a good deal, but if you are ok about going with middle level or smaller brands, you can do better by getting better performance, more RAM, storage and better cameras at a cheaper price
  • Beautiful, polished-to-perfection, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail - and with its unique "edge" screen, the S7 Edge is a sight to behold
  • Compact for a 5.5 incher
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Gorgeous, large, curved screen, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The extra navigation tools on the "edge" are definitely useful when used judiciously
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions - easily one of the best around
  • Brilliant, beast of a battery life, that takes it a notch above the already excellent battery life of the Galaxy S7
  • microSD storage slot
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • No notification LED
  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
