Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely dissaponted I bought this phone 3 weeks ago instead of another j7 pro or a j8, because this was recommended by the store as being faster and better battery life etc and have found I need to to keep it on power save mode constantly to get anywhere near the battery life of my j7 pro and it still falls short. It also has issues with not responding when pressing apps or info on calls etc etc but the store wouldn't swap it over after I went back in 3 days after purchase. Extremely dissapointed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quickly growing on me. I've never had a Samsung phone before and generally like this one. I do think it should be a little wider by about 5mm and or the exact same demensions as let's say the S8 thereby being able to fit S8 cases as there are not many case options for this phone. My old phone was a Motorola Droid Turbo 2 which I loved but had far too many problems. Maybe Samsung should get an unbreakable screen. Just putting it out there..
