comment
" ...  However it's certainly not without cons, battery backup is not very impressive (don't forget the fast charging though) and I've observed that it sometimes shows less bars in network signals than usual (which i think is cosmetic bcoz it doesn't affect call quality or data speed).  ...  "
comment
" ...  The box contains the fast charger, USB-C cable, a USB-A female to USB-C male adapter, a standard USB 3.0 to USB-C male adapter, a transparent fiber case which I use even now, AKG earphones (which are below par according to my taste), spare set of earbuds and s-pen tips. ... As promotional offer, I also received the Samsung wireless fast charger worth 4k INR. ... The wireless charging is seamless and so is the fast charging with stock charger. ...
