  • Good speed/performance overall
  • Very capable gallery and music player
  • Decent camera
  • Very good audio quality
  • Very good call quality
  • Beautiful, dual-glass OmniBalance design - the frame is even sleeker than the Z3 and together with the new materials exudes even more luxury
  • Ultra-slim at 6.9mm
  • Light, and pleasant to handle
  • Water-resistant
  • Excellent display with rich colors and nice viewing angles

  • Good audio quality
  • Rich feature-filled multimedia apps for pictures, videos, music

Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Large size (The body is unnecessarily tall for the screen size, especially considering that the bottom speaker grille is only a design element)
  • Weak GPU (compared to CPU) means that gaming performance suffers
  • Average battery life
  • Tends to overheat when put under stress (during gaming, watching videos, etc)
  • Gets hindered from operating at peak performance due to thermal throttling down
