Super fast delivery and in PERFECT condition right out of the box. Not a scratch or a ding! Said it was for the Verizon network, and it was. I did have to go into the Verizon store because the SIM from my old (OLD) s5 did not fit, but I have a friend who had an s7 and he just moved the SIM into his new s9 and was up and running after he did his device transfer online (I know you can order a new SIM online, too.) The Smart Transfer app was awesome for moving data from my old phone to new, however it didn't transfer any of my old text messages. Bummer, but not the end of the world. All of my contacts remain in tact, however, and even the alarm was still set to the time I'd had it set for on my old phone.
Took a bit to get used to the fingerprint scan, but now that I've got the hang of it, it's really handy.
Battery life could be better, but going from a phone that basically needed to be plugged in after an hour of normal use, this is awesome. It seems to last about 3/4 of a day before needing a boost and I use it pretty heavily for music, podcasts and videos.
It's super fast and has not had any glitches so far. Everything works exactly as it should.
Picture quality is AMAZING which was the most important thing in a new phone to me, as I use it to shoot for work (portfolio pics of the custom jewelry I make - so small stuff with no special light/photo box set up or anything.) I loved my s5 for the camera, and this absolutely blows that one out of the water. It has also performed amazing shooting pics of my kids and larger photos of sunsets and such. The camera is super fast to open without having to do a finger scan or anything, so I won't be fumbling to get into my camera and missing important photos anymore.
YouTube video tutorials for learning to use features, find little hacks and for set-up were very helpful.
All in all, this was a fantastic purchase. I will update should anything happen in the first year or so, but I'm thinking this is another keeper that I'll have around for a long, long time.
