The real attraction lies in its colors. The shifting of Samsung logo at back may irritate some users but not necessarily. The back camera’s lip instead of a cam’s bump is good in a way that if your phone drops, it may protect it from damage. 3.5 mm headphone jack is still intact eliminating the rumors of its unavailability in this model. There is something old and disappointing- the single speaker at the bottom. One may covers the speaker while playing sounds in a landscape mode.
