Picked up this phone yesterday after 3 years of Microsoft phones (820+640LTE). Both Android and hardware technologies have finally progressed to an acceptable stage and I absolutely love this phone so far. Not much bloatware, responsive, fast and great battery life. I'm a bit of a windows fanboy but M$ have not been able to deliver on the phone market and left me frustrated numerous times over the past 3 years. The comparison in performance increase between this phone and my last one (640) was amazing. And with only 3 apps I was able to turn the menu, lockscreen and notification panel into a windows phone clone with tiles and metro notifications, so I won't be buying a windows phone anymore.

From the Homescreen press Menu Â– Settings Â– My Device Â– Language and input. Then under Keyboards and input methods, press the little Gear icon.
From here you have various options including Haptic feedback, Vibration intensity and so on.
You can also adjust notifications for various functions.
This phone is good.
Battery lasts 2 days if all you do is make/receive calls with very short Internet browsing time.
Lag when launching normal apps(facebook, insta, note, etc) is almost non-existant. No guarantee it will remain lagless when it gets the Nougat update though. Historically, Android phones get more laggy with new updates.
Average gaming performance. (Kritika can play at High graphics settings with minimal frame drops when there are many enemies, although it chugs for about 2 seconds at the start of each stage. It loses to higher end phones in loading times)
Has a built-in cleaning app that lets you throw garbage from your phone's memory.
Super AMOLED display makes black colors REALLY BLACK. No annoying backlight.
Home button has a fingerprint sensor that works well enough... if there are no apps running in the background. DON'T make this the only way to unlock your phone. Keeping the pattern method is still highly advisable.
Camera is just OK. No OIS means that your hands need to be absolutely still.
Being water-resistant makes this phone the best value-for-money mid range smartphone compared to oneplus3t.

What is true is that with these new batteries you shouldn't let them go down to 0% to preserve battery integrity. The ideal battery charge is between 20% and 80%.
We're not using batteries from 1999 anymore. ;)
tina, 04 Mar 2017Can you use it on swmming pools?Yes.
Just try not to go too deep in the pool and dry it out with a towel after. Also don't use the speaker before it has dried. Leave it alone for a couple of hours.
