  • Good phone
    Reviewed by Rk - May 17, 2021

    This is one of the best android phone i have used at $1209 price point.Sure there is apple or oneplus 9 or 9 pro but the display, the battery (if you dont mind slow charging than oneplus) 3 years promised updates with 1 year security updates you cant go wrong with this.I think its been nearly a month and i have thankfully no issues with it plus the Samsung dex is very helpful for me.The only bad thing is that there is no dual sim and there is no microSD slot but you can use those small otg pendrives to transfer any large amount of file so im good with it.If you bought the phone make sure to fully update it otherwise its laggy at everything before the updates.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Photo quality absolutely amazing!
    Reviewed by inkchanswoop - July 29, 2021

    photo quality is stunning!!! But phone always pretty heated when in use. Battery didn't hold up for really long (medium use, browse websites,Facebook sometimes YouTube, don't play games) from 7am it start at 99%……when around 1pm it usually drops to 68%……before I done my work it usually lower than 20%. I'm always been a iPhone user since 4 to XR. Storage is fixed(128G) for this model which is kinda wired but I get so used to limited storage from iPhone... In all it's a good phone by far my experience. Had reset network setting once because it won't connect wifi or data constantly...

  • Amazing pics
    Reviewed by Samsung forever ❤ - December 11, 2021

    (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) The camera on this phone is amazing. The night pics are incredibly sharp and the colors are clear. The operating system is very quick and I'm really pleased with it.

  • In A Word : Premium
    Reviewed by Feisar - January 30, 2021

    After a day of power use : Reviews will mention lack of 1440p and SD card slot. I will miss the SD card but the screen is superior to the S20 due to adaptive refresh to 120hz. Excellent balance between battery usage and performance. I believe most users opted for 120hz in te S20 as well which also was at 1080p... however now the 1080 will be a native resolution for the panel instead of a scaled one. In all other aspects - speed , quality of materials, etc. Top of the range. And Samsung - I noticed the pre-installed screen protection. Very nice touch. Kind of makes up for there being no power brick in the box.
