I am sensing some bias here. I own this phone And I have owned every galaxy since the captivate. I have had zero performance issues even with dual screens open. It operates like a rooted android. No BS Samsung bloatware you never use and can't delete. Battery life hasn't been an issue AT ALL! I am a heavy user and yes I charge every night but who doesn't? You're splitting hairs between 9 hours and 10.5 hours. Slow charging? I charged yesterday from 17% to full in less than an hour. This phone gets a 5 /10 but the S8 gets a 9/10? Ok fanboy.
