Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 8 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Aesthetic, refined design, with a premium chassis feel
  • Waterproof body
  • Beautiful large display - well suited to media consumption
  • Polished, feature-rich UI
  • Also includes Samsung Pay, Samsung's new mobile payment interface, which is pretty useful and can remove the hassle of using physical debit/credit cards
  • Very good performance - backed by a chipset powerful enough for you multitasking needs, and at the same time extremely efficient - though it falls behind the top performers in the price bracket like the OnePlus 3T, and Moto Z
  • Very good call quality
  • Good loudspeaker - it's nice and clear at maximum volume too
  • Amazing battery life - comfortably one of the best in this price bracket - if you need a weekend warrior with a large screen, this is it
What we didn't
  • The large size means that its not the most portable or ergonomic phone, and is somewhat heavy and bulky
  • The glass chassis can be fragile, so you will probably be well advised to use a case
  • There is some color temperature shifting when tilting the display
  • Camera is decent but could be better, at this price point
  • No support for 4K video recording, or OIS
