2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

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

Display

  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games

Software

  • 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

Performance

  • Decent all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including games, and multi-tasking
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress

Camera

  • 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
  • Low light camera performance could have been better

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker output
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality

Battery

  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)

More

  • Lacks ambient light sensor, gyroscope and magnetic sensor
