Klinton, 06 Jan 2017'This one is smaller than the iPhone 7, something few premium Androids can claim.' There is... moreYou seem like an Apple fan boy. Do some research there are several phones out there that confirm this. One example is the Sony Xperia x compact. 4.6 inch screen size and smaller than iphone 7. Also the a3 2016 is also smaller and has a 4.7 inch screen. Check out the Lenovo zuk edge, it has a 5.5 inch screen and its physical size is fairly small for that screen size. As far as minimum bezel, there are few that compete at this size at the moment. Those near bezeless are bigger phone such as the xiaomi mi mix.

There is no Android phone with such size display, that is not smaller that iPhone7.
iPhone is still the King Of the Bezels.
What I like
- 4.7"HD AMOLED Display
- NFC & Fingerprint scanner
- Small compact build and IP68
What I dislike
- Price to performance ratio
If it was the chipset from J7, then maybe it could give a better performance since this phone is only in HD. If this was Â€330, then they could've made it 3GB/32GB...
I feel that the phone should've been price at Â€250. When I thought we'd get a good small android phone...
Based on this article alone... I already give it 2/5.. My opinion is yet to change base on reviews...

Fail. Very slow, 40 GFLOPS, GPU incapable of smooth UI. Poor camera. Poor screen resolution considering pentile. Little RAM for extensive web browsing and photography.
If it's really targeting iphone 7 what's with the low end specs?
GO home Samsung, you're drunk. We finally need a true challenger for iPhone 7, one that runs something more customizable (not ios), is sub 5inches and not s*cking balls ... can we have that?
If not what's the point of those almost low end devices.
Was is too hard for Samsung to give this phone a high level camera instead of the pedestrian one it has? There are a lot of people who are looking for a premium Android phone not called Sony and Samsung (along with other Android phone manufacturers) are dumb to completely ignore like they have been doing. This phone would've fit the bill only if it was given a good camera but unfortunately Samsung, in their infinite wisdom, created another J-series phone but with a more premium build.
yeah, don't need NFC or fingerprint, give the me rest of the package and knock off some of the price.
Question, how durable does it feel, will it survive as mobile device, being dropped, kept in a rear pocket and sat on repeatedly? Without a case. Cheap phones seem to excel in this area where mid-high end ones break easily.
