THE PRODUCT IN ONE:
This phone is probably the best phone on the market to date, which isn't just opinion if you take into consideration all of the specifications this phone has to offer.
I have been using it for around 3 months now which has given me time to fully understand the phone and learn about all of its extraordinary features.
I will start off with the phones screen which is 4.8 inches and takes up practically the whole of the phone. For me this screen size was huge for a mobile phone so I was very wowed upon removing from the box. The display itself is a super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, with the capability of multi-touch which can be a handy little feature and a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. For those of you who don't know anything about pixels on phone this basically means it is capable of playing back to you 1080p which is classed as true HD video. Not only does it play it back, it plays it back perfectly with not a single jitter or lag and only true vibrant bright colours. The 4.8inch screen is perfect for viewing video on especially when on the move and you need to catch up with the latest film on netflix, or your latest television programme say on BBC Iplayer it plays them all perfectly.
Due to its 4G capabilities not just 3G video playback on the move is not a problem, you will experience no buffering just instant smooth playback.
The camera on this phone is excellent. It is an 8mp Camera which takes photos at the resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels and once again for video, records in 1080p HD.
Now for a couple of the bad points I found with this phone.
First off is the fact it says it is 16gb. When plugged into the PC you will see this phone actually tells you that you only have 13gb and this is because the operating system which runs the mobile phone takes over the rest. This did bug me quite a bit, I know i still have 13gb to fill up which will take me forever, I still feel as though I am robbed of 3 gb
The other problem is the battery and I have read quite a few people have had the same problem with other samsung mobile smartphones. The phone will tell you that the battery is disconnected and then it will no longer let you charge the phone
There is only 2 ways around this problem, one is to just buy a new battery which is nonsense when you have just bought a new phone
The second is to drop the phone from 2ft with the battery removed and low and behold it starts charging again - yes I know this seems as though I am winding you up but the amount of people that have done this and it works is crazy. I was reluctant to try it at first as you can imagine with a brand new £400 pound phone sat in my hand but I didn't want to wait for a new battery so I gave it a go from 1ft instead of 2ft and it actually worked, so if you are going to buy a samsung phone keep that tip handy.
I would definitely recommend this phone to others despite the faults mentioned as it has so many great features. Such as the latest android operationg system giving you access to google play store and thousands of apps and free games to choose from, and of course its other great features such as video playback and recording, photo taking and its amazing design and huge capacitive touchscreen.

Summary: A beautiful smartphone with wonderful capabilities, probably best phone on the market to date!
