Best phone I've ever had! Nice feel to the hand. The back cover is plastic but solid. It has a gorgeous indigo blue finish but smears or prints easily. Who cares when everyone puts a cover on a phone anyway, right? Big screen size but narrow enough to hold with one hand. No worries about LCD screen. Very bright and easy to see. I was just out today in the sun and my screen very easy to see and read. Fingerprint reader is lightning fast. Fastest I've ever had. The cool thing is you can scan or use multiple finger prints so I use both my index finger prints a lot on it depending what hand I am using at the time. No face recognition but who cares! No idea why people have to have this. You're opening your phone up people, that's it. Takes a second. Geesh. Speakers are on both ends (dual speakers) so very nice and clear. Loud, too. I was out landscaping in my yard today, laid my phone down on a chair, and I easily heard my 80's music crisp and clear; did not need a Bluetooth speaker (even though that would make it much louder as we know). Headphone jack is an added feature. Camera is very nice! High quality pictures! Quality zoom focus and clear and colorful pictures (I have a few examples). A little cool feature is you can place 3 fingers on the face of your phone and screen shot. This is great since I screen shot a lot. When navigating through the phone, the processor is very fast and smooth experience. With all of these positives, then an extra bonus is the unique stylus tucked away perfectly. Writes very smooth and easily and is just plain fun! I'm a teacher, so very nice to have a note taking device when I quickly need it without frantically looking for a pen or pencil and paper. Just convenient to have in grocery store or when a quick idea comes to mind. Using screen protectors does NOT effect the stylus at all either. The battery life is Great out of my own Rating: Exceptional/Great/Good/Poor. Even though it's not exceptional, the phone charges fast, so no big deal in my opinion. I will never understand why people waste their money on a phone with a battery "on steroids" that lasts 2 or 3 days and pay an arm and a leg for it especially when you charge it up every night anyway. Also, amazing storage!
Note: At first, I thought this phone didn't have the capability to change the volume on notifications or texts. Well, it does. The side buttons are of course for sound, vibration, or silent like most phones and are used for Media Sound for FB, YouTube videos, calls, etc. You have to go to SOUND in Settings and use the Ring Volume to control the notifications or texts sounds. There's also a Call Volume and an Alarm Volume in this same SOUND Setting. I hope this helps.
For $299, I'm shocked this stylus and phone is so solid. Highly recommend this phone!
The only negatives or cons is that it doesn't have wireless charging but not a deal breaker for me. Also, I wish it had a notification blinking light to notify me when I have a message but not a deal breaker once again.
