3 out of 5 eggsSamsung - Best of the Worst

Pros: Looks thin, big screen, runs fast, lots of memory, Micro XD expansion slot, high res camera, has Android, isn't Apple.

Cons: Has a static lower portion of the screen which has fixed position software menu buttons mixed with a big, hard, idiotic main button, a design Google dropped SEVERAL YEARS AGO, because it is NOT user friendly. Has garbage Samsung apps. Doesn't come with a file manager. Doesn't come with any way to share files on a local network over WiFi. Comes with plenty of useless apps and widgets. Worst of all, this phone has Android (which is next to WORTHLESS because they can't seem to code themselves out of a wet paper bag). WiFi ignores DHCP leases entirely, which is important when using server-specified static leases, yet the phone tries to use a random IP, or worse, tries to use both at the same time. Can't properly use the DNS server from the DHCP server (which it completely ignores, remember?). So Android can't talk to ANY local host names unless they have a FQDN, which is idiotic. Almost ANY useful software to have, such as a file manager or network file transfer, requires rooting the phone, tripping Samsung's KNOX, and voiding the warranty. Android was supposed to be Free Software, based on Linux, which I loved. But, it is both at the same time, incompetently programmed at basic networking protocol levels, and more intensely focused on vendor lock in as a routine business strategy.

Memory card expansion slot is inside the battery compartment next to the SIM card, meaning, to swap it out, I have to remove my nifty case and the battery cover, both of which have a limited number of disassemblies before they never stay closed again. proper design would have been a side-accessible memory slot, like my old Windows Mobile phone from 2007.

The "best" model available to NewEgg at the time was this 32GB one, although the rest of the world had the 64GB model.

This phone is permanently branded with Vodafone from Spain or Mexico or something. This means that while it works with AT&T, I get software updates pulled from Vodafofne, and can't properly rebrand it to AT&T without voiding warranty, due to the nature of the KNOX app, and rooted lock-in, something that I was not made FULLY aware of and not made fully clear by NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: Android is incompetent. Most of these basic network functionality issues should NEVER have been put into any official release. Yet all of these issues are 3+ years old. Android coders are more interested in providing corporate fluff and lock-in features than actually providing a functional device. As a result, my first experience with an Android phone is abysmally disappointing, and I do not think they will EVER gain my trust again. Android is pathetic and sad. I desperately want it to be better than any Apple iOS, as I hate Apple much more. But I am scratching my head, wondering why with all these impressive hardware specs, I still prefer my old Windows Mobile phone from 2007 which had basic functionality like DHCP, WiFi, DNS, File Explorer, USB file transfers, etc.

I only gave this device 3 stars because of the very hot and sexy large screen, and camera. Otherwise I'd give it 0 stars for broken functionality that, as it is core functionality, as these and other problems have been known for years, suggest that they have no intention or ability or competency or interest to fix at the Android level, which affects all hardware that depends on the faeces known as Android.
