I have the phone for 10 months now ...
I use it for personal and work, pick it because the promises off hardware and reviewa, coming from Note 4 so comparing :
- the camera is better but consumes much more battery,
- perfomance is better, but in my normal use lasts half a day 5/6h, Note 4 did last at least 9h...
- yes, it does has a lot off memory, but it manages very badly... Using in work, photos, GPS, pdf, emails, net, past 3/4 hours jams constantly...
- it fails on basic, phone ... Network is worst than Note 4, my partner in same carrier in same place has is iphone constantly with good network and uses facetime, me, can't even maintain a stable voice call.
- voice call fails, when I'm using both hands and hold the phone with shoulder...
- software UI ... Is nice for those who use Facebook and such ... For a real use as work terminal is bad ... The contact search sucks my galaxy S had better phone software...
- lattly I need to carry a batery bank with me so it can last my day :( ... Sometimes gives error on SIM connection and reboot is needed..
- file management is under Note 4...
- sensors are very bad ... Proximity had made many calls in my pocket... GPS sucks vs Note 4 ... Compass error prone... Gives error keeps oscillating... I use it for work just payed for calibration apps and all, just sucks...
Has better hardware than Note 4 ... But sucks at all fields ... Except on photo and is in 3/4 hours from a reboot, in use, 6/7 hours ... Takes long to take photo and software just jams the phone sometimes...
Clean handset with equally clean signal for a phone thats all metal with no pantie antennae lines.
The FM radio pick up is excellent you almost have to be a professional photographer to get the right settings modes for crispy pics.
This device reminds of quality builds from blackberry which i still have along with Fiio A3/E11K audio amp i get crisp clean sounds that finish like a bottle of smithwicks.
Is that this phone will heat up high, when during talk time or when using gps?

I have more than 65 apps and the phone can handle many apps at a time. The response of the phone is super fast and opening of Apps and closing of Apps is very fast. Closing all the apps with one button is fantastic.The battery is not bad.

Only in rare moments it is irresponsive (without the sensitive mode activated, because you can use the screen even with gloves if you want!). For that specific game, it may be a problem with the game itself... idk...
