price N/A launch Jul, 2013

phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 9 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Decent display with good viewing angles, deep blacks and saturated colors
  • Android interface with TouchWiz UI
  • Smooth performance in day-to-day use
  • Good web browser
  • Excellent camera performance, on par with a good dedicated point-and-shoot camera, and far ahead of the usual phone cameras
  • Optical Zoom (10x), Image Stabilization, HDR, and good low light photography add even more substance to the camera
  • Good call quality
  • Decent battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Bulky, not comfortable to operate with one hand
  • Low brightness levels on the display make framing a shot outside under direct sunlight difficult
