Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 16 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Exceptional build quality - crafted entirely from metal and Corning Gorilla Glass 4
  • Beautiful design - fusion of metal and glass
  • Distinctive back, which is curved towards the edges
  • Arguably one of the best looking flagship phones to date
  • Great ergonomics - one of the easiest devices to handle with such a large display
  • Excellent display - bright, sharp, and has accurate color reproduction, great viewing angles, great contrast levels, and good saturation levels
  • New refined TouchWiz interface over Android, which is leaner and more customizable
  • New improved click and release S-Pen adds lots of useful features
  • Top-notch performance backed by top-end hardware - easily one of the fastest Android smartphones to date, with a faster LPDDR4 4GB RAM
  • Fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor work flawlessly
  • Excellent fast and responsive camera - images have plenty of detail, excellent colors and dynamic range, and the sharpness levels are among the best on a mobile phone
  • Great low light image quality
  • Exceptional video capture quality
  • Excellent call quality
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Excellent loudspeaker
  • Excellent battery life
What we didn't
  • The glass body can be slippery and prone to smudges, so using a case would be a good idea
