While deciding to buy a new handset, customers first think of performance. Performance of an electric gadget depends upon its RAM-ROM-processor-chipset. Samsung tries to provide better serice with these parts from the ery beginning. Qualcomm SM7225 Snapdragon 750 chipset is used here with octacore processor of 2.2 GHz.

Performance of this handset is more visible to gamers. A feature named ‘Game Booster’ is applied here which can runs the graphics more smoothly and live.

Unlike most of the smartphones of samsung, this handset has an feature to delete the junk files, clear the cache and memory.

Main external difference from other device is that it has the fingerprint sensor integrated with screen. In the other phone, this part is connected in the back or right side of phone but here built in with display.
Though samsung has remarked and highlighted many pros and advancement from predecessors, there are some cons too. Some users have addressed this handset as ‘very odd’. Quality of display, non-waterproof and non-dustproof functions, non-dedicated SIM slots and only wired charging system have made the users very dissaponted.
According to the users, resolution of this phone is very similar to 720p though Samsung has told 1080p. Another problem is that dust makes makes the chipset and other ICs slow gradually since it is not dustproof. Size of this phone can’t satisfy the gamers also.
