Continuing our series of Real Audio Reviews, we’re circling back to one of the most popular phones of the year. We’d certainly be reviewing a different Galaxy phone if it weren’t having such serious issues, so we’re left to focus on the options from Samsung which are actually available.

This year brought back fan favorites like water resistance, and the ability to add storage via Micro SD card, but did the audio performance receive similar considerations?
