2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Elegant, premium metal design
  • At 6.9 mm, it is really slim - doesn’t feel like a “big phone” when you first hold it - its slim profile and the slight curves near the edges make for a decent and comfortable grip
  • That's not the only ergonomic advantage this phone has - it is also considerably lighter than its peers at 189 grams
  • Fingerprint sensor is on the slower side - and it's accuracy also could have been better

Display

  • Very good display with punchy and pleasantly oversaturated colours - viewing angles, and brightness levels are excellent too
  • The huge size of the display makes it especially well suited for media consumption
  • Auto-brightness adjustments are smooth as well

Software

  • Touchwiz UI over Android is light, and adds a nice bunch of features like the "Always On" display

Performance

  • Very good performance - has oodles of RAM and the Snapdragon 653 inside is slick and fast - in regular use, the phone is fluid and doesn't skip a beat in any way - things are largely flagship-like, and it's only in the most demanding games that you might notice a performance drop from the Snapdragon 820/821
  • Has a tendency to heat up, when pushed in terms of performance

Camera

  • Decent rear camera - daylight shot are good most of the times, macro shots are good, thanks to the f/1.9 aperture, HDR shots are good as well, low-light shots could have been better
  • Decent front camera, with good level of details
  • No support for 4K video capture, or slow motion video recording, that is generally expected at this price point

Battery

  • Decent battery life - for a regular user - there is a full work day’s worth of battery life and then some more
  • Supports fast charging, with 10-100% charge possible in just under an hour

More

  • Samsung has also made it much narrower than the Mi Max and Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra, making this the most ergonomic of all phablets in the market right now
