Just upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S4 to this device, and wasn't too sure what to expect. The battery life is quite a bit longer than my S4, and the screen has much more vibrant colours than my girlfriends Nexus 5X, they are brighter, and more colourful when comparing the phones side by side. The 32GB of internal storage for a low cost was very nice as well. Some very graphical applications do run slightly slow, but that is an okay trade off as everything I use the phone for is still very usable. I like the larger 5.5 inch screen. The phone does seem to heat up with heavy use / charging more than most phones I have used before, however. Comes with a sim card tray so you can use micro or nano sims with no problem. Even though the fingerprint reader is small, it has never had a problem unlocking the phone, ever. All in all, this is a great phone for the price! Gets better reception in some areas than the Nexus 5X, and way, way better reception than my old GS4. Speaker is very, very loud, the same speaker that you use when on a call is the main speaker for the phone, and let me tell you, it gets very loud. The camera is great too, takes good pictures in low light with on-screen brightness settings while you are taking the picture. Carrier is Virgin Mobile (Bell) in Canada.
