The trio model of the Samsung is really a great deal to crack up on the smartphones in the market. It is the perfect blend of software, hardware and specifications, which one desires in his and her phone. But, as the coin always has two sides; similarly, every good thing has some bad related to it. Therefore, despite of bulging over the advantages and best technical specifications provided by the steel body, you must consider its drawbacks also. So, starting with the phone advantages, it has the latest Android kit, big display of 4.5 inches, SUPER AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and Qualcomm Quad core 1.2 GHz processor, but the phones lacks in the design. It is the same monotonous design, which users are using from its first Android/Smartphone release.
Despite of the monotonous design, the phone also lacks in the Gorilla Glass technology that might have the raised the design a bit. However, it is also a very big disadvantage as the rival smartphones of the same price have it. Moving a little from here, the phone also lacks in the battery back-up. Although, if you are nominal user, then it won’t irritate you much, but if you are mad behind mobile gaming or keep hanging on Instant Messengers, then the phone will sulk in battery life. So, if you belong to category to an all-time mobile user, then the phone may be a little bad decision, but if you want the solid specifications, like the RAM, connectivity, Camera, and CPU, then you must buy it anyhow.
