EXPANDABLE STORAGE AND 3.5MM JACK I slept on this phone the whole time I was shopping simply because I never liked Samsung's jank phones. But after scouring the market trying to find a phone that offered at least half the value they charged you for, I settled on the LG V60 (RIP LG phones), which wouldn't work on my network because of some bs proprietary technology (it seems like we're evolving backwards, innit?) It wasn't until I was going mad with rage at the consumer electronics market that I checked this phone out, and while I don't care for the UI, it's got all the hardware I need for an almost reasonable price. It basically cost the same as my G6 did, but comes with a better display and camera.Display is sweet, I like you can turn off 120hz to get more out of your battery, but I consistently run 120 with netflix, some social media-ing, and a fair amount of picture taking and the battery lasts me about a day and a half (I went to work with a full charge at 6am this morning, it's 11pm now and I've got 45% left with me having binged watched netflix for at least a few hours while browsing the web)Camera isn't top of the line, but it is pretty dang crispy. Focus is fast, you can quickly adjust WB, has a fair amount of shooting modes and image processing. My biggest quirk is, and this may just be my eyes, but depth seems a bit off at times, like the background and foreground blend a bit. Night shooting is pretty clean, and has better zoom than any phone I've owned, but don't expect magic from a quarter mile away haha video is a little shakey, I would've liked to have seen more stabilization, but I can deal with it.Comes with android 10 but you can download 11 off rip.One other thing I liked about this phone is there isn't a whole lot of bloatwear that you can't delete. Even most of Samsung's and Google's apps can be deleted, which is great because I don't want em hahaOther noteworthy things:MicroSD up to 1tbIP68 rating-i actually already accidentally tested this at it was sweet, so save your rice for cooking, kids.Kinda hard to find a sweet case for it, there is no classic defender otterbox :(It's wide and tall, but offset by not being very deep. Two hander if you've got small hands though.Final thoughts:Samsung still sucks, and I'll forever miss LG phones, but the specs you get for the price are really unmatched for what's out there nowadays. I really don't understand why you'd buy a $1300 flagship that has the same display, a slightly better camera, and no expandable storage, no audio jack, no IP rating, and an equal or lesser battery. In my eyes, this is the only phone worth getting in 2021. If I hadn't found it, I'd have just gotten a talk and text phone for work and just chalked everything else because smart phones are becoming more and more of a ripoff each year, and this was a REALLY bad year for them. Price gouging, proprietary tech locking you up, consumers will be at the mercy of the industry until we reclaim our buying power and refuse to pay for overpriced garbage
Muy buen telefono me gusting mucho y me llego rapido lo ordene un Domingo por la noche y El martes me llego se Los recomiendo!!
This phone is great and has everything you'd expect from the description, but it's worth pointing out the headset speaker (the one that goes towards you ear during a phone call) is possibly the worst I've ever used. Even over wifi/data calling it sounds atrocious. I had read some other reviews that mentioned this problem but brushed them off as alarmist or out-of-touch but boy was I wrong. Speaker phone quality sounds insanely better. For me, it's not a huge problem although it is definitely a disappointment but it can be mitigated with a bluetooth headset/headphones or speakerphone. That being said, If you are someone who spends a lot of time holding your phone up to your ear then this may be a deal breaker.Also, since you're reading this review, I HIGHLY recommend using the Samsung Galaxy De-Bloat process (google it) to remove all of the bloatware and spyware that comes preinstalled by Samsung. It makes the phone so much snappier and easier to use and, most importantly, it entirely eliminates Bixby and gives you your power button back!
Best phone I've ever owned. I usually buy cheap $200 phones but decided to invest in something with more options. This phone is half the price of the fancy galaxy phones and does all the same stuff.
Worth the price!!
