I've been a Samsung user for many many years! Only once did I go with something different. Never again!
I've read a lot of reviews of how bad the battery life is. I've never had a problem. There are things you can turn off to increase the battery, like turning off the location, auto sync, and so on.
I love the design, size, and feel in my hand. I get a lot of compliments about it. I also love the speed of the octacore and the amount of RAM & ROM. I don't use it for business, so I will never run out of room. With all the apps I have, I still have more than 1/2 of the 32 gig left. Did I mention the camera? I almost forgot. I love the new features giving for the camera. Especially the Pro mode where I can adjust it to my liking and take great moon shots!
Another winner, Samsung! Thank you!
