Disadvantages: Battery can be difficult to get into.
The Samsung Galaxy S11 has to be one of the best phones out there. The first thing that strikes you when you pick up the S11 is its weight or more accurately, its lack of weight! That is not to say that it is flimsy, far from it, this is still one very well built phone. The only problem you might have initially is finding out how to get into the battery compartment at the rear of the phone. As you look at the rear of the phone, on the right hand side there is a small notch about a cm wide. You need to pull quite firmly using your nail and it will unclip from the back. Once you get over the initial fear of breaking the cover you will soon get the hang of this!
The fact that this is about the only negative thing I can find to say about the Galaxy S11 speaks volumes. The processor is exceptionally fast and browsing the web is a delay free experience both with 3G or Wi-Fi. There are enough settings on the camera and video to enable you to take pin sharp photos the majority of the time without too much shutter delay, although if you want to take quality pictures from a distance then you really need a proper camera for this. My phone is filled with pictures and videos of my daughter doing all her various activities and the videos are crisp and clear and I have printed off many a picture taken by the phone.
The sound from this phone is excellent too and tunes can be accessed quickly from the menu. A great feature of this phone is the customizable screens. You can have as much or as little information or widgets on your home screen as you like, enabling you to access all your favourite features, whether this be social media or your favourite apps.
I haven't even mentioned the touch screen as it is so good that you instantly forget about it and just carry on whizzing about from screen to screen to locate whatever information you need.
All in all, this is by far the best phone I have ever used and I have never had a single problem with it so if you want a phone to listen to your music, take cool pictures and videos as well as keeping up with all the latest news and gossip via the net and social media, you can't go wrong with this phone.
Summary: Highly recommended
