Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 2 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • 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

What we didn't

  • 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
