    It could be the best hardware in the world but when it's running EMUI the phone may as well stink of fish.

      I completely and utterly agree - is why I stay away from Samsung. The bloat winds me right up.

      Anyway im a light user: a reader, texter, whatsapper. I dont facebook, game or shit like that.I use maps and am using Google Assitant quite a bit. I can get all that off a moto and have been doing for years - happily - with a half decent camera.

      This time I wanted also the best camera phone available, did a lot of research and opted for this.

      So far no regrets.

      Yes, I was wondering the sane thing. Receiving calls would be handy, but I'm particularly interested in if it will make outgoing calls.
