The second thing that can draw attention, so it’s to support LTE Category 6, which in theory should be capable of transmitting data at speeds up to 300 megabits per second for incoming traffic and up to 50 Mbit / s for outgoing. In general, the lack of performance experience will not work. Interface and a proprietary shell fly, applications run instantly, and pictures are even faster.

In the nighttime shooting images appear all the flaws of the camera.

Autofocus works about five inches from the object and can get pretty interesting shots. The front camera of 2.1 MP is capable of capturing pictures with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Video sensor records a similar resolution. If you need a more advanced phone cam, check samsung galaxy s7 camera.

Both cameras can be controlled by voice. The latter is particularly important for selfies, but in a noisy place and have to get the hand to press the shutter button on the screen. By the way, it can be reassigned to the volume key and thus do not reach for the touch-sensitive surface of the screen to take a picture. Maximum resolution in which the device can shoot video is 3840 x 2160 pixels at 30 frames per second. However, when viewing details on the PC for this number of points in the frame is not enough, although on the smartphone screen, everything looks fine. In the options you can set the camera mode Slo-Mo, that is, when the video is slowed down 8 times.

But story won’t end that easy Samsung will show more innovation soon may be in form of Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
