So with my snapdragon version of this phone, is better on battery life than my exynos model.  Yep, it’s a little bit better, giving me at least 1 to 1.5 hours more than the exynos versions.   The intelligent scan is not very accurate for me at times, and does not unlock when I need it to.  It doesn’t work very well in bright sunlight for me, so I’m gonna switch back to using the fingerprint reader. If I need to get into my phone, I don’t want to go through this all the time.  Over all solid, just like the copper exynos version.  However, the Samsung software still needs work, because I’ve got phones with the same internals, that have much better battery life.  8 to more than 10 hours of screen on time, and that’s just amazing on those phones.

Here is short video going over my thoughts on this model, and also some gripes I have so far.  Enjoy…
