Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent perfomer...!!! I bought this phone almost three years ago and the phone is still the best performer working like anything. Even after three years, I'm not planning to change my phone. It has superb camera quality, good processor speed and ample amount of storage. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this phone. But it would have been better if Samsung released an update to Android Oreo for the phone...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance It will be three years in August 2019 since i started using this phone. I dont want to replace this phone as this is a great phone. The only drawback now is its internal memory which is 16 GB. It was a lot when I forst bought the phone but with time, more and more apps, it now seems very leass as the apps and many programs needs to be installed in internal memory only. In three years, it has not depreciated at all and feels as if I bought this yesterday!! Great phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust and Resilient Against the test of time this phone has powered through the last 2 years I have had it. To be a 2016 phone in 2018 and be able to keep up with similar phones of its class; but newer, it really is a excellent piece of hardware by Samsung and having ever improving software I really think it would last me the longest of all my previous phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone I bought this phone a month ago. I love it as it does everything I want it to do. No issues with the phone whatsoever. Highly recommended. So glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung galaxy updates The last current update has changed the way I switch the phone off. Now I have to press the right hand button hold it down. See power off press it see power off press it and now....have to draw the security lines to actually switch it off. What a ridiculous long winded performance just to switch a phone off. My recommendations to Samsung is "KEEP IT SIMPLE" Apart from that it's a great micro computer and phone.
