I got this phone for the sole purpose of the ratings for the battery life I when I got the phone in the evening I charge for 7 hours to be sure that I'm not making a mess of it from the get-go however to my greatest disbelieve the battery of this phone did not last for 5 hours I'm forced to be charging this phone all over again. I'm going nuts this moment is not charging anymore I'll have to do a return. Please do not buy this phone if you are particular about your battery life on your phone.
Love it,it just has one small defect the aux port doesn't work.
So what to do for 5G?Get these -- (I'm not an Apple guy)
I gave 4 stars for 'value for money' because this is more money than I have ever spent for a phone. Although I am very happy with the performance, and battery life is superb. I can charge it at night and listen to music for several hours at work and still have about 70% charge left. It is quite a handful with the case on it, but I need a big screen because of vision problems. The side buttons for volume were something to get used to. I like the fact that you can wake it up by double tapping the screen. Overall I think this phone will suit me for quite some time.
I think the reviewer "Adirondack D" who said it doesn't work with Verizon's network is talking about a different phone or maybe they bought a phone that was locked into a different carrier such as AT&T or T-Mobile. Because I got this phone discounted with a 2-year contract and have no problems getting onto Verizon's 5G and LTE networks. The phone has broad wireless compatibility, so after my contract is up, I plan to unlock it and take it with me to a different carrier if necessary.Also, currently the 2nd-highest rated review says the phone doesn't stay awake when charging, but that's not true as of December 2021, so maybe it was a software issue that Samsung already fixed. I've used Google Maps a lot, for example. No problems. You can also manually set it so the display doesn't turn off when charging.I love the super-long battery life.What I love less: the display is lower-res than high-end phones. But for this price point it's fine. The US version lacks the Macro camera, but the other cameras work fine, so it's not a big deal if you don't take lots of close-up shots (e.g., of bees on flowers).Overall I'm very satisfied.
