2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Compact dimensions, solid aluminium build
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick to unlock

Display

  • Modern 5.6-inch 18.5:9 tall aspect display
  • Only an Okay-ish AMOLED display in terms of quality - not quite up to the high standard Samsung usually sets with its screens - the resolution could have been higher too

Software

  • No notification LED, or always-on-display - so you end up having no way of knowing if you have any new notifications without waking up the phone

Performance

  • Samsung's Experience UI is one of the nicer Android UIs around - and adds stuff like a more versatile multi-tasking implementation, 'Secure folder' to keep files, memos, and apps away from prying eyes, and 'Game launcher', to core Android functionalities
  • Underpowered chipset, day-to-day performance is ok, but thats about it - Samsung misses the bus here by including a weak chipset - most of the competition (especially the Snapdragon 600 series phones) is much better in terms of performance

Camera

  • Good rear camera in daylight conditions - detail is good, and the overall processing is very natural
  • Very good selfie camera - captures a lot of detail, faces are in sharp focus at arm's length distance, and are on point - there's also a portrait mode for selfies that works well
  • Rear camera performance in low light is pretty average

Audio

  • Good audio quality via headphones and loudspeaker (Loud speaker is pretty loud too)

Battery

  • Good battery life - will last the day with moderate to heavy use
  • No fast charging support

More

  • Uses the old microUSB port, instead of the modern USB-C standard
