2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • 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
