    Early days but all good so far!

    5/5
    Only had the phone for a couple of days but I'm very pleased so far. The smart software from Samsung made it very easy to transfer all my files, data and contacts from my previous Sony phone. I have to say that the battery life is pretty awesome - a full charge will last me two days despite the usual Facebook, emails, the odd call, a few messages, watching Youtube and a bit of gaming that I do that meant I would have to charge my previous phone in the late afternoon if I wanted it to last the day! I'm still getting to grips with the camera but the first results are very good, clear and allow a decent zoom in before they become pixelated. It is a little bigger than my previous phone and will take a bit of getting used to - not sure I trust myself to try one handed operation just yet!

    I bought this phone for my lass, as an early birthday present as hers was playing up, she absolutely loves it the camera is the best she has had, it's a good size phone and isn't that complicated to use, let's just say she was very pleased and I actually did something right for a change.
