  • Reception and call quality Rarely get full signals, but most of the time I have 3/4. good
  • Display It's not as good compared to my old iPhone 5S. But the screen is still pretty good. I still prefer IPS over AMOLED good
  • Battery life The battery life is pretty good for a high-end smartphone. My old iPhone 5S still last longer though XD. good
  • Camera The Camera is pretty good, but I don't really use my camera that much, this phone's camera seems good to me. good
  • Ease of use Touch-Wiz is easy to use already, but there's also a easy mode, so if you can't get it, turn that thingy on. great!
  • Design and form factor I do like this phone's design more than the S3 and S4, but i still hate the plastic... good
  • Portability (size / weight) This phone is a bit over size for me, because I'm asian(no offense). But I can still put it in my pocket, YAY! The weight of the phone is a bit light. so-so
  • Media support Android always have good media support, at least better than iOS. great!
  • Durability I take a really good care of my phones, never drop them, so IDK if they are durable. But Samsung's phone is usually durable, + this phone got water resistance great!
  • Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) Large support of apps, since it got a pretty powerful processor it basically have no problem to use with any apps, also plenty of accessories to pick from. great!
Detailed review
I had used this phone for a few days only, but I still went through most of the features of this phone. Although it doesn't really give me that much surprise, It is still a powerful phone. I do like this phone, but I probably gonna get the iPhone 6 when it comes out. Another thing i haven't mention about this phone is the finger print sensor, It is working pretty well, but it is not as sensitive as iPhone's unless you do it vertically. I do recommend this phone if you like samsung's features and UI.
