Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone and features I bought this a while ago the product is amazing however i suggest you do not buy a glass cover for the screen as it dulls the touch sensitivity on the side of the screen.

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..
