Strong points : Very innovative user interface with hundreds of awesome features, gestures & options. The large display size & best in class processor, RAM make this device the most desirable phone for the mid-range phone buyers.

Weak points : The main drawback is obviously the relatively lower resolution display though you can’t blame Samsung for this because of the very attractive pricing of this device. The internal memory is only 3.94 GB user available out-of-the-box.

Suitable for those people who are looking for a high performance gaming phone with a brilliant UI & huge display without breaking the bank. This phone is also good for watching movies, photography & obviously showing off the awesomeness of the UI to friends!
