Performance:

The biggest problem of the phone is the lag. It’s not present at all times, only making it more irritating. Sometimes, the same application opens with different speed. This usually happens after a reset. We had to frequently power on and off the phone since it was blocking in various applications, and the camera “didn’t feel like working”.

The quality of the sound in the receiver is more than satisfactory. The voices are heard quite monotonous but loud enough to clearly understand your collocutor. The other person won’t have any troubles either, because the sound is pleasant and real.

Forget about the loudspeaker in G900. This will save you some headaches caused by a rumbling and inconsistent sound.

The battery is one of the key features of the model. According to the manufacturer the battery should provide up to 12 hours of talking and 16 days in standby mode.

Conclusion:

This is sad. It’s sad that the flagship modеl of a new class of devices has been ruined by hardware and software defects. Meanwhile we are ready to believe that the first ones are only characteristics of our review unit, we cannot hide our disappointment due to the fact that for one month there hasn’t been an update to fix all the issues .

Since we don’t think we can trust the quality of the product, we give G900 a lower rating. If all its elements performed decently it would have gotten a good grade, because of the convenient combination of touchscreen, tolerable camera, multiple organizing options and an easy to use device.

If you want to get this model anyways, bear in mind the many defects, and get ready to send it for an exchange soon after the purchase if you get a similar unit to ours, of course...
