They should have just grabbed some.old snapdragon 801, the performance would match the Mali and they could have done slow motion, 4k and given better gaming experience.
Than the plastic back, really? Samsung, you proved you can do it better, why this plastic back again?
This and the snapdragon 615 makes this to one of the most overpriced phones released. Samsung could have done it much better.
Anyway, I like the camera quality for the fact, that it is using 1um small pixels, nice build Samsung
I totally would want the Exynos version of this phone and totally not want the Snapdrgon 615 version (which is the one they released here, sigh). Samsung has released the same model but with different SoC's in different markets before (like the Note 4) but the performance disparity between the SoC's was never a lot until they came out with this. The Exynos version simply blows the 615 version out of the water. It's quite misleading (and ultimately disappointing) for anyone who ends up buying the 615 version based on reading a review of the Exynos version.
absolut-allen, 27 Aug 2015You're crazy. The side by side tests I've personally done against my brothers NOTE 4, I'm smok... moreyes performance base A8 won over note 4 but remember it is not with big gap. There are other 5 smartphone with exynos 5430 (galaxy a7, alpha, a8, meizu mx4pro, prestigio5430duo). and only 2 of them won on performance by small margin over note 4.
Remember that note 4 also will have L5.1.1 soon...
So, my personal conclusion is still..... (considering so many other good thing) at this price range i definitely go for note 4.
EugeneOnTheEdge, 26 Aug 2015dude, if you say Note 4 is better, but then you say that you enjoy S6e better and not recommen... moreS6 edge battery sucks. My gf using it. Need to charged twice in a day, but charged incredibly fast.
Patchii, 27 Aug 2015How Much that this phone cost? and does it have FM radio?Price is 29,000.00 and yes it dose have fm radio and it also support otg
If Samsung market this calling it "Samsung Galaxy S3S" with a removable battery. I would probably consider buying.
blaaah!!!, 27 Aug 2015yup!! I think note 4 is really the best phone...You're crazy. The side by side tests I've personally done against my brothers NOTE 4, I'm smoking him in everything with 5.
This is the first time ever I have read a full review of a Samsung phone which isn't a Note or an S one. And I thought right, this phone isn't worth its price, at least I don't think so.
Samsung might want to focus on Note and S series only, and let other companies play at the midrange area, cause this is a midrange phone to my eyes, and its typically overpriced.
