Lighter, so less force when it hits, and doesn't dent...
I have to agree my sg4 too a punishment, and phone was still basically mint.

I actually would be happy with a mini m8 that's plastic and has the same specs as current m8, just getting tired of the large screens. If the Mini was coming with the same spec sheet I'd jump on it

It turned out to be a used phone which I don't mind since the screen is no longer cracked . However, the screen appears to "drag" compared to original one I had. For instance, it seems as if the screen struggles to pick up scrolling text. This is most noticeable with grey text on a white background.
Anyone word on what can be causing this or if this normal on some screens? I am not sure I explained it right, but I would say the refresh rate seems lowered I'd that makes sense.

I just looked it up as I don't know what ghosting means. Yes, unfortunately that is what occurs.

On this test, the sides of the squares lose the the shape completely.
