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

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Excellent build quality, with a premium finish, and premium choice of materials
  • Good grip, with a size that is easily pocketable
  • Relatively comfortable to hold and operate with single hand for a phone of this size
  • Attractive, aesthetic, futuristic design with two curved sides on the screen - this is arguably the best looking Galaxy phone to date
  • Best-in-class Super AMOLED quad HD display - has great contrast levels, superb viewing angles and superb sunlight legibility
  • Gorilla Glass 4 is laminated to the display below it so there's very little reflection off the display
  • New refined TouchWiz interface over Android, is now leaner and more customizable
  • The edge screens add a few occasionally useful features to the UI - night clock, weather/stock info strips, people edge, missed notifications etc
  • Top-notch performance backed by top-end hardware - easily one of the fastest Android smartphone to date
  • Fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor work flawlessly
  • Excellent camera quality - easily among the best ever - images are detailed, impressively sharp and clear, and low light image quality is pretty good too
  • Camera video capture quality is excellent too and very high on detail
  • Decent call quality
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Good video playback quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good battery life, and fast charging feature gives you 4 hours of usage over 10 minutes of charging
  • Support for wireless charging

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The glass back is a magnet for smudges and fingerprints
