What We Liked

  • Excellent build quality, with a premium finish, and premium choice of materials
  • Attractive, aesthetic, futuristic design with two curved sides on the screen - this is arguably the best looking Galaxy phone to date
  • Best-in-class curved Super AMOLED quad HD display - has great contrast levels, and superb sunlight legibility
  • New refined TouchWiz interface over Android, which is leaner and more customizable
  • The new customizable edge screens add a few occasionally useful features to the UI - night clock, weather/stock info strips, people edge, apps edge, missed notifications etc
  • Top-notch performance backed by top-end hardware - easily one of the fastest Android smartphone to date - a step up from the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, with a faster LPDDR4 4GB RAM
  • Fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor work flawlessly
  • Excellent camera quality - easily among the best ever - images are highly detailed, rich in color, impressively sharp and clear, and low light image quality is pretty good too
  • Camera's shutter speed adjustment mode is exceptional - takes picture of much better quality than auto mode
  • Camera video capture quality is excellent and very high on detail
  • Very good loudspeaker
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Excellent call quality
  • Excellent battery life, and rapid fast charging

What We Didn't

  • The glass back is a little bit slippery and is a magnet for smudges and fingerprints
