If you are considering buying this phone, be aware that you must buy a screen protector at all costs. Even though there are several independent reviews out there claiming that the S5 Neo features Corning Gorilla Glass, this is neither supported by official Samsung specs nor is it borne out by experience. I can state this with certainty because mine got scratched a week after I bought it.
Overall a decent phone for the price I paid (Â€299); excellent colours, beautiful resolution; updated to Marshmallow on about July 15 (Greece); on second thought, for the same amount of money I could have had an iPhone 5s, if only I'd been patient enough to wait a few days for the courier.
After using an Xperia SP and and iPhone 3gs I have this to say: both Sony and Apple have superior photo sensors and software to Samsung, based on my limited experience. As for text input (I write a lot, in several European languages), Android 6 text prediction can't hold a candle to iOS 6's!
So, I'm looking to sell mine already, even though I have invested about Â€100 in Android apps. Apple has the better system, no question.

With all the new updates that I've installed over the last few days, I now cannot figure out how to cancel an event in my calendar - there appears to be no option to do that anymore. I liked this phone for its simplicity, and now I'm really frustrated! Can anyone help?
