  • I have a 5c in my wishlist because I'm broke. I once had some type of Samsumg, but it too FOREVER to charge and ran out of charge very quickly. I was very glitchy ang had a tendency to get very hot. I moved back to my Iphone 5 in less than 6 months. Edit: It's ordered! It should arrive within a month! 😊😊

    • iPhone 5 ? Bro you should get literally any other phone then a iPhone 5 maybe a iPhone 6s or a moto Android phone

      Riverdale talesRiverdale talesÅr sedan
    • Random :3 If you need to go for 400$ minimum to get a performance just slightly better than an Iphone 5 it's not really practical. If I wanted I could just get an Iphone 6 for under 200$ but those give a ton of hardware issues, the least of them being heating issues.

  • It's still great even if it's almost 3 years since I bought it. Speed is still fast and battery is still great. I use it a lot and I can't remember any difference b/n now and when I got it brand new. There are a few scratches but I believe it would still survive in the next couple of years without any repairs needed.

  • READ THE WHOLE COMMENT. While the hardware of Samsung phones is great, even with one ui, the software isn’t great. One ui made things cleaner and easier to use with one hand but it’s way behind iOS in my opinion. First off Samsung only gives 2 years of software updates to its phones. So if you bought an s8 right now it would have one ui on it and while that’s the latest software right now, when buying a phone you have to think of how it will fare in the long term, this phone will not receive anymore software updates and so it will be missing out on the great features of newer updates but it will also be vulnerable to hacks and glitches more than a newer phone. One ui is still a very heavy skin on top of android even if it’s lighter than Samsung expierience so, it bogs the phone down considerably and adds bloatware. There are duplicate apps on Samsung phones that often confuse users about what app they should use. Do you really need a Samsung email app and a gmail? On the other hand buying an iPhone 7 or later now is a better buy because iPhones get 4 years of software updates and they have a lighter more optimized and simple to use os. That alone makes their phones a lot faster than android phones. The iPhone has iMessage which allows you to see when someone is typing or wether someone has read your message or not. It allows you to play games in the app with someone, you can pay eachother, you get better emojis, and cool onscreen effects like fireworks!!

    • Yeah i used A8 2018 before , then i changed it to other phone , keep changing and until now ended up with S10. 6 months ago i was using S9 , fantastic phone just the battery isn't that impressive , if the battery last all day i'll use it without changing , i switched to S9 plus because of the battery on S9 suck

  • Was that 2 to 2.5 days of standby time? and it looked like you had the 8 plus not the regular 8. I had the galaxy S8 and my biggest gripe about it was the battery life. Full charge would still require me to bring my charger to work with me. Now I have the XR and it pry has the best battery ive ever used. But I miss my galaxy screen. Also miss android so my next phone will pry be the S10.

However the major drawback with this phone's camera is the depth mode works only when the object is 50 cm in distance Anything beyond 50 cm depth mode will not capture while any other phone with this feature captures the picture in depth with any distance And there is heating jssues

  • You are using the wrong kind of screen protector. Try a screen protector that is glued to the screen with LOCA (liquid optically clear adhesive). I have a Note 9 with one of those screen protectors and you can barely tell there is another glass on the screen.
