Carrier: Boost Mobile
I purchased this phone from Boost Mobile in early December, and I am delighted thus far with its performance. The Boost variant has 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM with a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 Processor and Adreno 306 Graphics. The battery lasts a whole day + on a single charge even with the LTE (4G) enabled. I lose about 1-2 percent battery capacity per hour if I take conservation measures. I have since added the "Doze" app from the Play Store and I now lose about 0.50%-1.20% per hour. The battery charges pretty fast as well.
The 720 x 1280 display is nice. The AMOLED seems to handle well but some reds seem to be orange in appearance. The Boost variant comes with Android Lollipop 5.1.1 out of the box, I hope that an upgrade to at least Marshmallow is being considered.
The earpiece audio is excellent. I also got excellent reports on my voice from the phone (bottom microphone). The Speakerphone is fair, the ringers and alerts could be a bit louder.
I live in the Plainfield, NJ Area and the LTE Service is Good to Excellent.
A Moto G would be a more affordable alternative to this Samsung.
Samsung overcharges for their phones.
