Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great The phone is still usable, the features are useful (some of them) and the specs are amazing! I think Samsung should still sell this phone, maybe as a J or A or maybe ON smartphone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Companion? Does this apply after a few years? The phone ia great for its era. No doubt about that. But after a four years, it begins to become less of a life companion: it takes a long time to turn on (5min+), the volume keys work and stop working at their whim, and the battery refuses to charge past 90%. I then begin to wonder, when all I can do to change the volume is mute or unmute the phone, after waiting 15 minutes for it to turn on, how much of a life companion it really is. Of course, there are many features that make it a life companion, like how the not so large battery seems to last 3-4 days without charging and how the torch on the back only uses 1% every hour. The battery usage is amazing! Also, because of the plastic back and phillips head screws that hold the phone's circuitry together, it is very easy to replace the headphone jack or screen when they stop working. In short, it still does all the things it is supposed to do, just slower, and with hardware buttons chosing how they work depending on what's for breakfast. A good phone that's beginning to slow after four years. Let's see how it goes after 10. (P.S. The section when when writing a review that asks what colour it comes in does not white as an option. I bought a white phone, not a coral blue or lilac purple one, both of whixh don't exist.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improvements Technically speaking this phone is better than my old computer! But there are three major features that I'd like Samsung to improve. First of all; the USB 2.0. I was expecting a USB 3.0 but I was disappointed. Second, it has no radio! This is a bit stunning. For such a modern device, lack of radio is really discrediting; I understand that there may be technological constraints still I recommend Samsung to do the necessary next time. For your information let me remind you that use of radio can sometimes be life saving! The third point is about the battery. Samsung please produce better capable batteries like the note 2! Overall it is a very nice phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Smartphone bar none. Purchased to replace my previous Galaxy S4 which I managed to destroy (dropped from very high place). Would recommend this phone to anybody, particularly to Iphone owners. Large screen, ample memory, excellent camera and good looking. Plenty of apps available for this product. Note that I purchased this phone Sim free and not via upgrade. I was eligible for an upgrade but chose not to. Superior phone, fair price and came with the latest Android OS (Lollipop ) and not the previous as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value phone My old Samsung Galaxy S had served me well but was starting to show its age. I wanted to upgrade but not spend a fortune on the top of the range model. I'd been watching the prices of the S4 start to fall and decided to 'do the deal'. I don't need anything much more than a good phone with internet access and easy calling and texting. I like the bigger screen and in day to day operation the phone is very good. Swapping contacts, memos etc to the new micro SIM was a bit tricky using the Samsung software and I couldn't copy over old texts that I wanted to keep, but this wasn't a serious problem. The camera seems to work well and comes with lots of functions and features, but whether I'll use them or just leave it on auto remains to be seen.
