AnonD-454049, 17 Jul 2018SD 450 paired with a FHD+ display lol samsung is smoking some strong shitSD450 = SD625 "slightly" underclocked
Same exact Adreno 506 GPU, which is basically what pushes the display
Even SD430 is fine on FHD+, as shown by Huawei Y7 Prime 2018
Call reception and quality is very poor....
stivi737, 17 Jul 2018And how do you intend to put a back glass cover to a phone?Think of a silicone case that has glass stuck to its back with adhesive.
I'm not an engineer, but if glass sandwich is possible, a silicone case/cover with glass back should be possible as well.

Too Bad !! It does not have Fast Charging. We can't expect this from Samsung. In similar price segment they put it in A5 (2018) last year.
Walter C. Dornez, 17 Jul 2018True. Though I think with paint jobs or like those snap on back designs, metal phones can look... moreWhat baffles me is that why no company has made a glass cover. Silicone/rubber and a glass back.
Looks premium, costs a penny to replace.
Guarantee for laggie and slow performance with such a high price.

I'd take the xiaomi redmi note 5 pro over this any day.

I'd take a well built aluminum/stainless phone over glass if two versions exist.
1- brushed metal doesn't look bad
2- handles more falls
3- easy to repair (screws are arguably easier and better than glue)
4- dissipates more heat
Only problem is with paint and such, but you can't have everything you want.
I always use a cover/case so plastic, metal or glass won't look any different. First two tend to be more forgiving for impacts.
That battery life is really good, for midrange phone (from Samsung). To bad that Samsung UI, SE9? Looks similar to Windows 10 UI (in settings)..
But, al least, is not anymore slow like Touchwiz was in the golden days of Samsung fame (on mid and low end devices).
An alternative version of A8 if you don't like glass back.
I just wish they kept the USB C port.

Less repair visits after drops, and my time is important to me.
Its a nice phone overall except for its price...
Good thing that Samsung's phones tend to drop price after a couple months.
