The corners of the device are well rounded and it has an aluminum frame and there is less metal against your hand and thus a firm grip on the device. From its shape, size and design, it can easily be operated with one hand without straining. The power button is on the right while the volume buttons are on the left. The finger print scanner is incorporated into the home button.

The phone is worth buying as it has the best features as compared to its competitors (Huawei P9, HTC 10, LG G5 and others). However, there are cons of this device, the back needs to be wiped regularly after use as it becomes grubby. The speaker is also facing downwards and it is easily blocked by your hand while gaming. It is also distorted at high volumes which is not what you expect of such a powerful device. The home button is accurate and fast in terms of speed but not as that of Nexus 6P’s. It is thicker as compared to S6 and that there is a glass at the back too which could easily be damaged if dropped. The AMOLED screens produce oversaturated colors. When the screen is off, the AMOLED displays time and date, which is pretty cool but the problem is that, it is only limited to show Samsung’s Messages, Email and Phone notifications leaving the rest out.

Enough said, this is a nice phone and I suggest you grab one as soon as possible.
