Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 13 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Stylish, classy design with dotted patterns on the back

  • Relatively comfortable to hold and operate, for a phone of this size

  • Excellent build quality

  • Water and dust resistant

  • Brilliant AMOLED display, with wide span brightness controls, great contrast levels, and superb viewing angles

  • Android with a new, modern, flat TouchWiz user interface, which is a definite step-up from before

  • Cutting edge hardware, and excellent software (interface) optimization, ensures that this is easily one of the fastest smartphones to date

  • Many useful Samsung apps like S Health

  • Excellent, well-featured camera, with super-fast focus speed - easily among the best ever smartphone cameras

  • Sound coming through the loudspeaker is very powerful and pretty deep

  • Excellent video playback

  • Very good photo/video editors

  • Good battery life, with additional useful power-saving features (Power Saving Mode, and Ultra Power Saving Mode)

What we didn't

  • Neither the fingerprint sensor, nor the heart rate monitor are groundbreaking or particularly well implemented
