Detailed review
This is the first time i bought a samsung phone.
I am happy with the buildquality, it does not feel cheap like previous versions did and the back of the phone is comfortable to hold.
It has many good preinstalled apps but allso many useless ones.. for example you have the google music player and the samsung music player google photos and samsung photos, WHY?!
The fingerprint sensor works really good you can register 3 diffrent fingerst and it works most of the time. you have to swipe the finger, i personally like this more than the one on the iphone, its more secure too.
the display is grat the camera is great and has nice features but is allso missing some.
with the bult in picture editor you cant really do anything.. had way better ones on previous phones
Its watherproof, i tested it.

The speakers are loud - but not all that good.. they have a nice feature thoug; when turned on the phone's vibration acts as a subwoofer wich improves the experience of it.(not the sound)

It has many usefull stuff on there but just the same amount of useless stuff.
