2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • No getting past the fact that this a rather big phone, and can get awkward to hold (although compared to other 6 inch screen phones, it stands up relatively well, thanks to its curved back and narrow screen borders)
  • No multi-window mode, or other large screen software optimizations found in other large phones (such as the Galaxy Note series)
  • No longer waterproof like the Galaxy S5
