Anonymous, 21 Jun 201618h video playback... Honestly. How does gsma test that? 10% brightness on aeroplane mode? Or... morehahaha, no gsmarena is very onjective. yes, 18 hours seems like a lot, even my xiaomi mi4c can not last not even close to gsmarena's 10 hours web browsing score. their scores are just for ideal scenarios only, i believe. airplane mode, very low brightness and browsing (or watching videos) continously without any pause.
say no to fanboys, 21 Jun 2016that battery life though
Removable too! In metal body too! Samsung breaks way too many taboos with this phone.
First it shows that making the battery removable does not hurt its actual battery life (at least not by much)
Second it shows that you can make a stylish metal phone with removable back!
Samsung puts the stops to their own fanboys that were arguing for years that the new Note/Galaxy (what have you) can't have removable battery because they are metallic and/or that would hurt battery life.
I hope Samsung will continue doing this. Make stylish phones on one hand, but also with removable battery and SD, on the other. Superphones should have everything, looks AND substance (upgrade-ability through removable components)...
Mohit S, 21 Jun 2016There's no gorilla glass protection on J72016 even the Corning Gorilla website doesn't even me... moreMy phone I just purchased through MetroPCS has the gorilla glass. Maybe Samsung didn't provide it is but my phone has this...
18h video playback...
Honestly. How does gsma test that? 10% brightness on aeroplane mode? Or they give sammy more points... I dont care if its 4000mah, you are not gonna be able tp watch 18h of video unless its 1% brightness, no network an no sound, period.
Can anyone argue with me. Maybe I am stupid and dont understand something? (Other sammy phones get 12h video, even small battery S and notes...)
There's no gorilla glass protection on J72016 even the Corning Gorilla website doesn't even mentions this model.
I have the same phone and I was eagerly waiting for the review.... overall a balanced phone I say
Thanks for the review.
The review says "USB Host". GSMArena's spec's do not.
No gyro and compass are not discussed. Not important?
The constant refocus in videos is annoying. Fix in sw update?
The conclusion says: "If you want more for your money, be sure to do your homework." Which phone is it that the conclusion won't name? Is it available in the western hemisphere?
As expected for battery life. Samsung always been good at optimized battery for their phones
