Got this phone refurbished for 350€ in 2022. For the price, it probably has the best screen. An incredible viewing experience, with excellent colors, details, smoothness, brightness and so. The size is the ideal for me. Paired with it's nice stereo speakers, you get an excellent multimedia device. The fingerprint scanner is decent. The build quality is flagship level, as it feels sturdy and premium. The only problem is a small gap between the rear panel and the metal frame, which isn't that noticable and doesn't affect performance, but I can't trust its water resistance. This is a common issue with this model. The cameras are versatile, but I expect the iPhone 11 Pro and the Huawei P40 Pro to give better results. Pictures are detailed and I mostly love how vibrand they are (with scene optimizer turned on) and the aggressive HDR. Not for everyone, however. The ultrawide and telephoto don't change the color optimization and the HDR works just as well. Needless to say, sunsets and sky pictures look incredible. The videos are quite good too, though the 8K mode is not worth it. 4K works sm better. Battery life is ok. Keep in mind that according to AccuBattery, mine has about 86% of its advertised capacity left. I get about 3-5 hours of screen on time before it dies, being a heavy user, and charging it isn't that quick. It supports up to 15W wireless and 25W wired charging. With the 9W official wireless charger, it takes more than 2h for a full charge. I also have a 10W wired official charger, with takes less than 1,5 h. I bought a 25W official charger, but it only works at 10W. I looked for solutions online, but nothing fixed it. Now for the performance. I have the exynos varriand. It's generall really snappy. However, It heats up too much when playing heavy games for some time and the performance drops, so the game lags. My previous phone with Snapdragon 845 was more stable. Lastly, the software. It's running android 12, oneUI 4 and will get another major OS update. It feels great. The animations look good, it rarely lags and has nice Samsung features. Neither as polished as iOS, nor as restricted. One of the best android skins, worth trying out. Overall, I'd say this phone is for people who want a "compact" but big enough device for multimedia and some gaming. It captures social media worthy pictures that don't need editing. It's neither a battery champ, nor a gaming centric device, but a trustworthy package for the average user.

Pros

  • Screen
  • Camera
  • Software
  • Peak performance
  • Speakers
  • Build quality
  • Size
  • Wireless charging

Cons

  • Heating issues
  • Battery (just decent)
