Design

  • Good build quality and design
  • Polycarbonate back that has a smooth matte finish which looks and feels good
  • Fits perfectly in hand and isn’t slippery either, offering a nice grip when holding
  • No fingerprint sensor

Display

  • Good Super AMOLED display - good color reproduction, sharpness, viewing angles and an above average sunlight readability
  • Customizable display mode - Adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo, and Basic

Software

  • Samsung's custom UI over Android adds useful features like the Ultra data saving mode, and the S Bike mode
  • Also comes with Ultra power saver mode, which saves juices by applying a greyscale theme to your home screen and limiting the number of usable apps
  • No notification light, which is present in most mid-range smartphones nowadays

Performance

  • Butter smooth performance without any noticeable lag

Camera

  • Decent camera - the daylight shots and macro shots are impressive with fine amount of details and sharpness - low light performance is average though
  • Front facing LED flash for the front camera

Audio

  • Decent sound quality via headphones
  • Good call quality/reception
  • The audio output on the speaker is on the low side

Battery
