kombatfighter's review of the Samsung Galaxy Avant

Great phone for the price!

An amazing phone at an affordable price range. I got this phone the first day that it came out and was actually planning on getting the S5. But do to bills coming up and new job, I got this one for now and will upgrade to S5 or Tab 3 in 6 months. What a great investment!

First off performance wise, the Snapdragon processor makes a big difference as always. I like to play Zen pinball and other 3d games to put it into max performance. Not a single slowdown, stutter or shutdown so far. The UI responsiveness during apps is very quick and seamless. I don't use the Andriod 4.4 KitKat/Samsung UI however. I can tell you though that I did use the default for a about a week before switching over and it was still snappy.

Display, big enough and small enough to fit into my pocket without any hassles. I usually keep other things in my pockets as well. I've ran 1080HD with it sometimes hanging up on youtube videos during stream. I'll simple just rewind to the spot and it will resume playback normally. However, this phone wasn't built for 1080 (720 is max) so I'm surprised it still handles it well.

Button placement was done well and no arguments there.

Sound is phenomenal for this phone and there's 2 different sound output options built into the software. I've left it on default because it seriously sounds great.

Camera is good enough with Samsungs apps while taking pictures. I do wish the hardware was higher than 5mb but that would drive the price up on it so going to be happy with that. It still does take clear pictures with no problems. The camera will also adjust to the lighting for better pictures and not sure if that's hardware or software bonus.

Battery life during usuage is really good. However, I use Greenify app to kill lingering apps fully. Also turn off wifi and bluetooth when I'm not using it.

P.S. I use the Jawbone Bluetooth that works very well with the built in Samsung Speech app. It also supports the OTG usb drive storage.
