Functionality and Performance

This Smartphone launched with many innovations like water resistance, fingerprint reader and heart rate sensor. Its screen size is slightly larger than its predecessors. The 16 MP camera is an improvement from Galaxy S4’s 13-MP. The much hyped automatic scrolling feature when the phone is tilted didn’t get the appreciation it hoped. The phone scrapped out the less useful features of S4 and rearranged the layout and settings for convenience. One feature is that one button combines many features and gives options of the more applicable ones. This phone comes with a private mode and kids mode to make it more user- friendly.

 The hitch is the plastic back that deems it cheap in front of iPhones and HTCs.


Overall it is a good Smartphone. It has fantastic camera, much improved battery life and performance. Newly added innovative features of software makes it a good option. This Smartphone is compatible with gear accessories by Samsung. The downside of this Smartphone is that it is an expensive option and newer handsets are offering similar features at better value of price. The heart rate monitor is also said to be an unreliable feature.
