phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 12 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Fairly comfortable to hold, despite the large size
  • Beautiful, stunning, large display with high resolution, vivid colors, great viewing angles, decent outdoor visibility
  • Android interface, polished with TouchWiz Nature UX
  • Tons of add-on features and apps
  • Slick, smooth, breathtakingly fast performance powered by a powerful processor
  • Excellent web browser
  • Very good camera (natural colors, good exposure, good details)
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent call quality
  • Good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • A few of the add-on features are gimmicky, and the long list of such features can sometimes overwhelm and confuse
