      from Kelowna BC on July 5, 2018

      I find it very heavy compared to my note 2 and harder to navigate And to me it is narrow for reading and some things have 2 many steps to complete. The odd thing is the screen..it is not sensitive to my touch so very hard for me to navigate. Over all I guess it does everything the specs say. If I cd I wd of brought it back and waited to afford the note that had a great deal the only weekend I didn't look ..cable switch over problems lol?
