2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Graphics performance (GPU) could have been better, for a flagship phone
  • Average battery life
  • Comparatively large (tall) for the display size, which can make it cumbersome to carry around in your pocket
  • Power button, and volume rocker are awkward to reach

  • Software features to make the big screen more manageable (like those in similar Samsung and LG phones) are largely missing
