2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Full metal unibody design, and good build quality
  • 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
  • Samsung's UI over Android 6.0 is neat and simple while adding a number of additional features like one-handed operation mode, smart alert makes the phone vibrate when you pick it up to notify you about missed calls and messages, easy mute, S bike mode, Ultra data saving mode, and locking/privacy options
  • Decent all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including 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
  • Video recording quality is decent too and audio is also crisp
  • Decent loudspeaker output
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • Good build quality and design
  • Polycarbonate back that has a smooth matte finish which looks and feels good
  • Fits perfectly in hand and isn’t slippery either, offering a nice grip when holding
  • Good Super AMOLED display - good color reproduction, sharpness, viewing angles and an above average sunlight readability
  • Customizable display mode - Adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo, and Basic
  • Samsung's custom UI over Android adds useful features like the Ultra data saving mode, and the S Bike mode
  • Butter smooth performance without any noticeable lag
  • Decent camera - the daylight shots and macro shots are impressive with fine amount of details and sharpness - low light performance is average though
  • Front facing LED flash for the front camera
  • Decent sound quality via headphones
  • Good call quality/reception
  • Decent battery life - good for one full day - with moderate use
  • Also comes with Ultra power saver mode, which saves juices by applying a greyscale theme to your home screen and limiting the number of usable apps

  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
