Great Phone for the Money.

I had the Galaxy S8 and the I-Phone 8 Plus and this phone is excellent for the most part. The battery life is good given I keep the display set on QHD. Why keep it on HD or FHD if the screen resolution is QHD? I find that a charge does last me the day with adjustments to increase battery life. I am averaging about 30% usage daily (with the Always On Display off). The display is very sharp and robust. I like the wider aspect ratio as well.

The phone is very snappy and I have yet to experience any lag. The audio in the earpiece is good, the speakerphone quality is good, but could be louder. The UI is easy to navigate and has many options. The keyboard is excellent. I figured out how to resize it. Now if I can only figure out how to select & copy specific text in an SMS/MMS message.

I am very impressed with the Dolby Atmos on my Multimedia. With the supplied AKG Earphones, sound is really good, surround is very effective. Phone works well after the 6/26/2018 Security updates. Fingerprint sensor works great unlike the S8. I do recommend a screen protector and case.

Phone works well after the 6/6/2018 Security updates. I will continue to evaluate and update here.
