  • Polycarbonate back that has a smooth matte finish which looks and feels good
  • Fits perfectly in hand and isn’t slippery either, offering a nice grip when holding
  • No fingerprint sensor

Display

  • Good Super AMOLED display - good color reproduction, sharpness, viewing angles and an above average sunlight readability
  • Customizable display mode - Adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo, and Basic

Software

  • Samsung's custom UI over Android adds useful features like the Ultra data saving mode, and the S Bike mode

  • Front facing LED flash for the front camera

Audio

  • The audio output on the speaker is on the low side
