2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average loudspeaker
  • A lot of bloatware comes preinstalled

  • Glass panels make it rather more susceptible to scratches from keys in your pocket (so buying a case is a good idea)
  • Average loudspeaker
  • 4K video recording feature is iffy and tends to heat up the phone
