I just love the phone for the following reasons:
1) Form factor (screen size and ease of operation by one hand)
2) Zippy Performance
3) Bottom Grill Speaker
4) Robust Design
5) Great Looks
. But there are three shortcomings in this phone:
1) Battery life (but I bought the official samsung 2500 mah battery separately. Samsung should have shipped this additional battery along with the handset).
2) If the chipset would have been Snapdragon 800, then it would have been even greater on the performance.
3) Initial Pricing was not just right, hence it is a flop model and samsung had to stop the production.
4) It should have had an SD card slot (or a 64 gb and 128 gb ROM variants).
My kind request to Samsung, please address the shortcomings and consider releasing the next version of this phone. We definitely need a flagship phones with 4.7 inch screen size, as I see a gap in the market particularly in the Android world for a flagship phone with this screen size (to compete with iPhone from the form factor perspective).
In general Samsung has to have 3 flagship phones with these screen sizes - 4.7, 5.4, 6.1).
Is this device fully supported on wind mobile in Canada? they use AWS 1700-2100, not sure if it does and what version I should buy
