2-Minute Review

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

Design

  • 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

Display

  • The Super AMOLED display is vibrant, has good viewing angles, and decent sunlight legibility
  • Display lacks an ambient light sensor so it won't adjust brightness levels on its own

Software

  • Samsung's Touchwiz over Android is one of the better Android UIs

Performance

  • Performance is smooth in daily use, but is a definite step behind the phone's top peers in this price bracket

Camera

  • Decent camera performance, in well lit conditions
  • Fast shutter speed, with negligible delay between shots
  • Poor low light performance of the camera

Battery

  • Good battery life - one can easily manage a full day of use

More

  • Unique Smart Glow feature that offers a different take on a notifications LED
  • 8 GB of internal storage will be a limiting factor if you install a lot of apps/games
