  1. Now the huge drawback is lack of Dual Volte.
    This is purely a camera centric phone.
    it would have been a great buy if equipped
    with sd 636.
    nevertheless a typical Samsung fan phone.

    1. What is the need of dual volte,only Jio have volte technique upto now in India.I don’t think that any person will keep 2 Jio connection in same phone.

      1. No,With out dual volte if we want to use internet from the sim other than jio then jio will have no network, so dual volte phones will helpful to use jio sim as secondary sim.

        1. Well, Tell me a simple thing.
          Do we really recharge Internet packs on all the SIMs we carry? When Jio gives 1.5 GB per day as base plan, I don’t see a single person using all his sims for Internet. For consumers who really need a lot of data go with Broadband.
          BTW, I get 3.5 GB per day on Jio.

          Just stop this Dual VoLTE tamasha!!!! I know this device is not for those who want every feature in their phone. It’s for those who want the basic things to be done well. This time snapdragon processor will help it to compete somewhat in offline market. Because online buyers mostly look for Mi, Huawei, etc as they are mostly available in online market.

          Well, that 1.7 aperture camera and Super Amoled display will definitely boost the sales.
          I do love phones packed with full of features, but how often they really prove to be useful makes them useful. Ignoring basic sensors like light, gyro do affect samsung’s sales.

          1. Dude, I am in a place where there is no jio connection. So for me dual volte is very much necessary as I learn tutorials from YouTube . I use both Airtel n vodafone simultaneously if one another net pack is finished for the day. Dual vote is very much necessary here.

      2. Sandeep Lata
        Dual volte soon will be the default standard.

        Try to understand this basic thing

        1. I am using Jio net from 18 month’s.I never felt need of using net from both the Sims.Did you see anyone recharging net on both the Sims in same phone.

          1. All networks won’t give good speed in all places in india, network speed goes good to worst at different places in same city, and this is india people use dual sims for a reason, some people do recharge their non jio numbers, when we use second sim there shouldn’t be no network issue in other sim. That is the reason for all latest processors having dual 4g volte function, even the latest entry-level processors from mediatek and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor like 429 have dual 4g volte functionality.

          2. In some places Jio internet doesn’t work so for internet another network is required and hence dual Volte required. In coming months every company will switch to Volte and only dual Volte phones will work properly and rest will have single sim standby only. Note and keep this in mind.

        2. In USA people have to pay approximately Ra.2500/month for net & video calling that’s why most people there have only one connection whereas in India you can buy sim as many as you want because you have to remain only RS.20/minimum in it.

          1. I have many friends and family members who recharge their both numbers ,at first they all asked me why does jio signal lost when they are using internet in other sim, they thought it is their device fault, many people think dual sim 4g means they can use 4g in both sims ,in reality while using 1 sim in 4g, 2nd sim will be in 3g/2g. Next year there will be only dual 4g volte phones companies which uses latest chipsets

          2. I have 3 more sim but i rarely recharge any since 3/4 months , all outgoing and net on jio only

  2. Biggest let down is processor.Atleast they should have come with Full HD+ resolution.
    Overall as per expectations from Samsung.

  3. To sandip lata and other single volte supporters

    You all should better switch to keypad phones, if you have time to argue against new technological advancement desired by many(if not all).

    Dual volte will ‘the default’ in all dual sim smart phones pretty soon.
    Keep arguing but change won’t stop.

  5. Today Infinix launched real Superstar phone of 2018 Infinix Smart 2 which is Redmi 5a killer.

  6. In that case, call divert is also a feature.
    I think no body would love switching internet providers so often (I definitely not and none of my friends circle too).

    Dual VoLTE is good as a feature and yes may prove its use in near future.
    But, rejecting a device making it as a point of concern is just not acceptable right now.

    1. No counterpoint report only provides no. of smartphone shipments and not actual sales. All those shipped smartphones are lying with shopkeepers. For Online platforms which now accounts for nearly 40% of total sales Samsung is nowhere. So Counterpoint report is totally misleading. Xiaomi is still no 1 according to total actual sales to customers and not to dealers. Note that.

      1. You have no knowledge about business. Those at stores definetly sell…. Samsung in hand is still better and status then mi.
