    Overall: You wanna know why you should be buying this phone in October 2016???
    1. NO OTHER phone will offer you such a high screen clarity!! Super AMOLED those are not just big words!! My brother bought a lenovo Zuk Z1, bigger screen nearly same Ppi on paper, but when you compare it practically!! It's a whole new level! Trust me the magnificent screen puts iphones to shame!! It's AmoLED after all!

    2. I took videos of me while I dived in a pool, river and so many places, it's wonderful!! people will say stuff but trust me I took the pain to write this review because I love this phone, I had bought it for like 30+ something and with the price it's being sold now it's the best deal you can get!!

    P.S- I had put a surgeon's tape over the charging port flaps and headphone jack just to be careful before diving in water.

    3. CAMERA: We clicked photos from iphone 6s and S5 in good daylight!! S5 beats them all with a hugeee margin!! Even photos and videos under water were amazing! bUT STRICTLY rear camera, you will have a mediocre quality with the 2mp front! The video quality, no arguing about that 4k HD is a monster, you gotta love it!!

    4. You gotta love those small gimmicks!!! NO OTHER PHONE WILL EVER PROVIDE THESE!!!! swipe finger in air over the screen to change pics in gallery, browse the gallery and stuff without touching your screen! BROWSE THE VIDEO IN PAUSE WITH JUST SWIPING A FINGER IN AIR!!! Just swipe a finger over the screen from extreme corners to take a screenshot! Call people by just making a gesture! Air touch, air browse!! these might be gimmicks but GIVE ME ONE PERSON who doesn't love them!

    5. I have been using this phone for over year now!! Never was disappointed!! I faced like nearly no lags and freezes!! I once challenged my friend to check em! HE lost :P Depends how you use your phone really! If you know how to clean junk files, cache.etc then you are good to go!

    6. I don't know what people do with their phones, I play high end games, browse a lot on youtube and never faced heating issue like they say!! A very mild heating is common.
    P.S- I rolled back to the kitkat OS coz I love kitkat!! The phone works like a wonder on kitkat! S5 has marshmallow support but it's upto you which one you wanna use! Marshmallow is good to, you don't say!

    Now the CONS:

    1. No 4g LTE for reliance Jio support if you can't live with that then it's a problem.

    2. 2mp front camera, decent pics but if you are a Selfie person then it's not for you. But don't forget the whopping powerful rear one if you are into nature photography or still life then buy this blindly!

    3. The flap cover at charging port might break if roughly handled compromising the water resistance!! BUTTTT you can get an original one at samsung care for 180 Rs. and they change in like 10 min.
    Hope this helps
