Anudeep, 22 Jun 2016Sorry to burst your bubble but this hasn't got a metal body, only a metal frame. But still, lo... moreDon't you read?
"the back cover sports a tastefully done brushed metal finish that works pretty well."
That's right there in the review. For all intends and purposed the phones looks metallic. Using metal is about look anyway, plastic is of higher quality as far as durability and weight goes.
So it succeeds in both looks and durability. The idea that you cannot make a tasteful phone with removable back should be dead by now. Here's hoping to get those features on Samsung's flagships.
Unfortunately I am not satisfied with this phone. In general the quality is ok, but small features are lacking... for example-dont know why my gmail is not appearing wgen somebody sends me mail, keypad vibration is not possible at all, timer when sounds is switched of goes mute(I use it for yoga, and as alarm does, I tgink it sgould keep sound even when phone is muted...), and finally- if I use headphones the voice of persone I am talking to-is tooooo loud. You cant soften iy anyhow!!!!! IT IS REALLY DAMAGING MY EAR!!! And my ear hurts now, but if I use phone without headphones, everybody around me can hear my talk... small things but make me really sad.. and the last- there are some noises during the calll. Oh and the last- contacts can be loger then just name and surname-16characters-what a shame! And I cant delete any contact either... Pity-but be aware, I hope this helps ;)
Dear gsm arena It is very good phone but why it needs update in every month
I would like to see it compared with ZenFone 3 in the future. Same screen size, same market target. Even though the battery life would be different.

Honestly. How does gsma test that? 10% brightness on aeroplane mode? Or... morenote 4 reaches 18 hours of video playback. s7 edge reaches 20.
although the proprietary battery test employed by gsmarena does not really reflect real world usage.
The biggest disadvantage with this phone is that it does not have a fingerprint sensor.

Here you go. They set all phones to 200 nits worth of brightness.
it could be an interesting phone but 720p on a 5.5" display is laughable, and why keep skipping things like compass and gyroscope ? how much did they save with the omission of those? 1 euro ?

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.
AnonD-506194, 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.
